Cuervo comes to the market as her owners have accomplished what they set out to do, spend 2 years cruising the Mediterranean. They will now set their sights back on their home waters of the Pacific Northwest. She has enjoyed many updates and upgrades during her current ownership. Her owners are very maintenance-conscious, having owned a number of boats as well as a commercial truck dealership and service center. She has the optional flybridge, which is a great vantage point from which to operate while in unfamiliar harbors and narrow passages through rock or coral.
The Nordhavn 47 was designed to cruise oceans and provide comfortable accommodations for her crew through extended periods of time aboard. It has occupied a crucial position in the Nordhavn line, fitting easily into small marinas, yet equipped with many of the features found in the larger models in the Nordhavn line. The engine room space is extraordinary for a 47-foot yacht, and it connects with the lazarette through an aluminum door aft. The AC electrical system is 220-volts, so the 47 has a separate washer and dryer. The electrical system has sufficient capacity to support a full size Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer/icemaker, plus an additional smaller freezer, helping to ensure that there will be ample capacity for your fish catch. With 1325-plus gallons of fuel, a 12kW generator, Victron multi-frequency battery charger, and dual Victron inverters, Cuervo is outfitted for world-cruising.
You will find the list of updates and upgrades impressive. Extensive systems maintenance, including the longer interval items was completed in 2017/2018.
The interior wood is teak throughout finished in satin varnish.
Enter through the aluminum Dutch door from the cockpit into the salon. To starboard is a crescent shaped settee with dinette table. To port is an opposing settee with storage under, and additional storage behind the seat backs.
The galley connects to the salon forward. Forward in the salon to starboard are steps up to the pilothouse, and outboard of the steps are the washer and dryer behind a fully louvered door.
The pilothouse is generally isolated from the other living areas in order to minimize light intrusion, from other activities onboard. Outboard to starboard are stairs leading down to the staterooms. The master stateroom is aft of the lower stair landing and the guest stateroom forward of it.
The bed in the master is oriented longitudinally, and an ensuite head is located outboard to starboard. The engine room door is aft.
The forward guest stateroom, has a double bed offset to port with a pull-out pipe berth above. The guest head is forward of the stateroom.
The starboard side deck is a secure walkway guarded by a high bulwark. There is a side boarding door centered about fore and aft. The side deck joins the cockpit aft, which also has a transom door for access to the swim step. The swim step includes moveable “staple” rails, and makes a good platform for diving, tender or kayak access, or mooring stern-to. There is also a stainless steel ladder for water access. Two L-shaped handrails provide additional security when boarding from aft.
Moving forward and up some steps on the starboard side deck leads to the security of the Portuguese bridge, and through a door onto the foredeck. There are two stowage lockers in the Portuguese bridge and two deep molded-in lockers aft on the foredeck. A molded-in ground tackle area forward of the Maxwell windlass contains debris brought aboard by the anchor chain. There are two drains from that area to the waterline so that sediment does not streak the hull topsides. A cast-aluminum Freeman commercial hatch allows access to the chain locker below. Forward of the windlass there are two anchor rollers.
Moving around the pilothouse on the Portuguese bridge to port and aft are steps up to the boat deck.
The main salon will accommodate a crowd in comfort, and its connection to the galley creates a very convivial environment for entertaining. Although there is ample sleeping space within the staterooms and pilothouse for most occasions, the width of the starboard settee can be increased by 6" by removing the seat back cushions for overflow accommodation.

The Bosch washer and dryer – an upgrade over standard - are forward and to starboard behind a fully louvered door. The dryer vents to the outside.
Just inboard of the washer and dryer are five steps up to the pilothouse. The pilothouse is a comfortable place for a group to gather underway and often serves as an office with a view when moored or at anchor. Forward raked windscreens aid in shedding water and eliminate light reflecting onto the glass from the electronics during night operation. There are two opening vent panels in the forward windscreens.
There are Dutch doors port and starboard out to the deck. The doors and windows are commercial grade built by Diamond/Seaglaze.
Above and below the windscreens are large upper and lower instrument consoles where the electronics complement is installed, positioned so that the screens on them are legible from most areas of the pilothouse interior. Two Hella fans mounted under the upper console aid in de-fogging the windscreen.
A Stidd helm chair provides a comfortable and adjustable position with excellent visibility for operations underway. The chair is located comfortably in reach of the instrument console and the quick-turning angled steering wheel and Mathers electronic main engine control. To starboard in the pilothouse joinery is the electrical distribution panel with its digital meters allowing electrical systems to be monitored easily. There is a Link battery monitor on the upper console as well.
Aft of the helm chair are the dinette settee and teak table. The cushions are upholstered in Ultraleather. A watch berth is just aft and above the dinette seat back, and has a divider curtain around it. An off-watch crewmember can rest conveniently within easy reach should assistance to the on-watch crew be necessary. The watch berth is also a favorite with kids, too.
To starboard and forward from the pilothouse are steps down to the landing for access to the master and guest staterooms. The steps have red courtesy lighting integrated into them.
To starboard and aft in the pilothouse there is also a large hanging locker just inside the starboard pilothouse door.

The master stateroom is aft of the landing at the bottom of the stairs from the pilothouse. The queen size bed is located longitudinally, and has drawer storage all around. There are two hanging lockers and other organized storage space sufficient for extended time onboard.
Opening ports with screen are outboard to port.
A full height engine room door is aft.
The master head is ensuite, outboard to starboard.
• New headboard 2017
• Teak and spruce cabin sole
The master head is surprisingly large for a 47-foot yacht. It includes a large granite-topped vanity and medicine cabinet with mirrored doors, Raritan Atlantis fresh water flush head, and a large shower stall with 6’-7” of headroom for taller crew members.
Forward of the landing from the pilothouse is the guest stateroom with a double bed offset to port and a desk to starboard. Storage is provided in drawers below the bed and desk, and two hanging lockers forward.
A pipe berth pulls out of a compartment above the outboard side of the bed.
Light and ventilation are provided via two oval opening ports with deadlights, and two Lewmar overhead hatches. The ports and hatches have insect screens.
A door at the forward end of the stateroom provides access to the guest head.
The guest head has a granite-topped vanity with Grohe faucet. There is a large towel/linen locker on the starboard side of the compartment. There is a cabinet with mirror doors over the vanity.
The toilet is a Raritan Atlantes fresh water flush electric type. The shower has 6'-9" headroom, and is fitted with a Grohe European type shower fixture.
The cabin sole is travertine tile.
A ducted exhaust fan and Lewmar overhead hatch add light and ventilation to the space.
Engine room access is in the master stateroom through a full height door on the starboard side of the bed. The door is gasketed, insulated aluminum, with a window, and lockset and two dogs for a positive sound and air seal.
One of the outstanding features of the Nordhavn 47’s engine room is its headroom, allowing easy movement fore and aft. All the way aft in the engine room an insulated aluminum door with lockset and dogs allows access to the lazarette interior, making night time equipment inspections safe and easy.
The engine room is ventilated by two air intake plenums aft and one exhaust fan outboard forward, and an exhaust fan moving air up along the dry stack.
The engine room is insulated with 2" foil faced leaded foam, covered with aluminum perforated plate.
Maintenance strakes are contoured into the hull underbody to provide both additional headroom around the main engine, and to provide space for a flatter main engine shaft angle for increased propeller efficiency. As a result, there is a remarkable amount of engine room space for a boat of this size.

The single Lugger main engine is a time-and-distance-tested Nordhavn configuration. With dry stack exhaust and the Nordhavn gravity feed fuel system, the propulsion system is the most reliable of any in service. It has been tested over many years and millions of cumulative miles, including those racked up over numerous transoceanic passages dating back to the introduction of the Nordhavn 46 in 1988.
By using a dry stack exhaust system, the raw water cooling pump on the main engine has been eliminated. Instead of having a heat exchanger onboard the engine, the coolant circulates in a closed system through a keel cooler mounted into a molded recess on the outside of the hull. As a result there is no raw (outside) cooling water circuit to ingest weed, plastic, or other marine growth, nor is there a rubber impeller, normally fitted to a raw water pump, to be damaged by debris, or disintegrate due to wear. The only pump in the system is a long-lived metal vane type in the closed cooling system.
Rather than mixing with water and exhaust at the water level, exhaust gas from the engine is discharged from the dry stack well above the deck and superstructure to eliminate the “station wagon effect” of pulling the exhaust along with the boat while underway. Exhaust noise is diminished because of the absence of the “water-hammer effect” from the cooling water discharging with the gas at the waterline.
