NEL are delighted to offer N63 hull 04 for sale. “Due North” is an outstanding example of the Aft Pilothouse Nordhavn 63, the modern take on the legendary Nordhavn 62. She was built for her current owner and has been based on the West Coast of Scotland for much of her time afloat. She has been lovingly maintained by a hugely conscientious owner. Her specification is outstanding and her systems and redundancy means safe passage making in the very worst of conditions. The Nordhavn 63 offers more internal volume than her forward pilothouse sister (the N60) and “Due North” has a layout that offers great flexibility to accommodate friends and family without compromising the main purpose in allowing a couple to cruise and live aboard where stowage, space and a comfortable environment are paramount. The specification lists are long. The maintenance has been exact and extensive. She has been cared for to the highest standards. All she requires now is a new owner to reap the rewards of buying this exquisite vessel!

Brokers’ Comments

This will be the first N63 we have had available on brokerage and we could not be happier to have her listed. We are fortunate in our business to bring some beautiful boats to the marketplace, the vast majority, highly spec’d and well maintained. N63#04 “Due North” tops just about every other listing we have had in terms of upkeep, specification and detailed care and attention bestowed upon her over her time afloat. Sticking well clear of cliché, there is nothing this boat doesn’t have, or in the amount of care, attention and services given. “Due North” is as fresh as the day she was handed over to her owner. Her owner is planning on purchasing another Nordhavn so “Due North” is on the market to sell. Her owner is very hands on and will make himself (together with NEL) available to help the new owner understand and enjoy this fabulous yacht.

Owners’ Comments

We have greatly enjoyed owning, operating and maintaining “Due North” here on the West Coast of Scotland. Scottish weather puts any vessel through its paces and “Due North” has proved herself time and time again. The systems on board allow two handed and often solo operation of the boat with total confidence and safety. “Due North’s” maintenance scheduling, spares provisioning etc. is recorded and documented within the “wheelhouse technologies” cloud based maintenance system. This can easily be transferred to a new owner and is a valuable tool in keeping all systems up to date. Whilst the operation of “Due North” in all respects is a comparatively simple and hugely enjoyable process, it might appear daunting to anyone new to some or all of the various systems onboard. NEL proved to be extremely helpful in providing all necessary familiarisation and training to us as new owners in 2012. They will provide the same level of assistance as necessary to the new owners of Due North. In addition, we would be very happy to augment that handover and training in any way as required.
