“MYSTIC TIDE” sleeps nine owners/guests in five en-suite staterooms all with en-suite heads. Comfortable accommodations for a crew of four are located aft of the engine room.


MYSTIC TIDE is one of the finest Nordhavn 86’s built. She was built with a master stateroom up on the sky lounge deck, like most yachts in the 150’range. Just aft of the master is a private owner’s balcony with ample room for lounge chairs. Her overall size and volume is comparable to yachts in the 110 size range, offering the use of five staterooms plus crew quarters and Captain’s cabin.

MYSTIC TIDE is built in compliance with American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) “Guide for Building & Classing Motor Pleasure Yachts”. She has also received ABS – A1 Yachting Service Certification. MYSTIC TIDE was also put into Australian 2B (10 + 4) survey in 2016 and renewed to 20th May 2018.

The exterior hull laminated skin is built with Vinylester Resin (prevention of Osmotic blister), then using woven roving and then matted with Polyester Resin, which ties and builds a strong Marix reinforcement, solid and rigid laminate.

Hull thickness is in excess of 2”at the lower strakes tapering to .825”.
