Welcome to Nordhavn.com - Power That Is Oceans Apart



Day three at the Anacortes Boat and Yacht show. See Nordhavn 63 LADY DI at C dock slip #39




The Anacortes boat show is on! Come on down to C dock slip #39 and see the beautiful N63 LADY DI.






Nordhavn 52 Dirona arrives in Helsinki after a six-week cruising along the Swedish east coast and through the Stockholm Archipelago.

Sights ranged from submarines and cold war bunkers to castles and medieval towns.


One of the great by-products of having a Nordhavn built at our partner factory, Ta Shing, is receiving a video of a new boat’s final weeks before shipping. The staff at Ta Shing create one for every buyer having a new Nordhavn built there. Usually only a minute or two in length, the video always comprises the transporting and launching of the new boat as it prepares for shipping. This includes the iconic trucking of the enormous hull down the main streets of Tainan. The video prepared for the owners of N6833 is special in that it features archived clips of their first Nordhavn undergoing the same measured and momentous practice back in 2010. As the old saying goes: the more things change, the more they stay the same…

Nordhavn 68#33 is the latest model preparing to be launched. Pictures show her taking the ritualistic – and necessary – commute through the city of Tainan to An-Ping Harbor where she’ll be splashed and undergo seatrials. N68#33 is scheduled to ship to Florida later in a few weeks.

Construction of the much anticipated Nordhavn 80 is well underway and the South Coast factory sent photos this afternoon of the build status. Pictured in the images are an N80 deck mold, bulkheads being installed in the hull of N80#1, a shot of the fiberglass tanks installed, and the flybridge deck tooling completing. Hull #1 is slated to ship from the factory late 2019/early 2020.



From SD Captains aboard N60 DAYBREAK and N60 EBBNFLOW:

The 2 Nordhavn 60’ we are delivering to PNW departed from Pillar Point Harbor yesterday. Saw some orcas west of Bodega Bay.
This morning off Point Mendocino a boat called for assistance. With the deteriorating weather, we decided to take her under tow. Daybreak with Captain Asen Alexandrov towed her towards Humboldt Bay where USCG life boat took over.
Never a dull moment!



Mike and Lou Ann Forshee, owners of N46 SILENT RUNNER IV, receive their 2,500 Distance Pennant in front of the original Nordhavn 'concept drawing', appropriately the Nordhavn 46. We love it when Owners are able to come by the DP office to receive their Distance Pennants in person! Presented by Devin Zwick.

Currently docked at Pillar Point Harbor near Half Moon Bay, south of San Francisco.  Still a tie!




Two Nordhavns 'racing' to the PNW - N6065 DAYBREAK & N6050 EBBNFLOW

Two Nordhavn 60's, DAYBREAK and EBBNFLOW, were off loaded in Ensenada and are currently on their way Sidney, Vancouver Island.
Both Nordhavns are also being captained by two brothers, Captain Assen Alexandrov on DAYBREAK and Captain Nikolay Alexandrov on EBBNFLOW.

And they're off....


Construction of N475 hull #1 is moving along swiftly at the South Coast factory and expected to ship this fall.


Saturday at the Miami Boat Show. 


Another great day at the Miami Boat show. Come on down this weekend!


Great first day at the Miami International boat show. Come down and see us tomorrow at slip 807!


Nordhavn 6078 gets offloaded at Port Everglades today. The boat will be brought north from Fort Lauderdale to be commissioned by Nordhavn’s commissioning team.

The well-loved and well-cruised Nordhavn 62 "Moon River" is undergoing seatrial and survey today in Cape Canaveral, FL. "Moon River" is hull #11 and has been a one-owner boat since her delivery in 1999. No doubt she's got another 20 years of enjoyment and impeccable service to give to her future owners.



It was minus 18 degrees in Wisconsin this afternoon at the time of the survey of Nordhavn 4678. Thankfully, the boat was being stored inside at the downright toasty (mid-50s) Washburn Marina in Washburn, WI. Rhode Island native Matt Boliver, accompanied by his salesman Dave Balfour out of the Nordhavn NE office, flew out to the frozen Midwest to go through the boat while on the hard. A seatrial will be held at a later - and hopefully warmer - time. Proof that no locale too remote, no temperature too cold, will keep the Nordhavn sales team from getting their clients into their perfect boat.


Today Peter Wotschach and his family continued to provision their brand new yacht, Nordhavn 6073, "Yes", as they prepare to embark on their first big voyage. Peter and his four sons, who live in Stutgaart, Germany, christened their boat just a few weeks ago. Today they are back at Bluffs Marina in Jupiter, FL to prepare "Yes" for her maiden voyage. They embark Friday on a shakedown to the Keys followed by a weeks-long excursion out to the Bahamas.

Party at Ta Shing Factory





Photo (from the left side of the picture) of N60 EbbnFlow, N60 Daybreak and N50 Duet loaded on the Yacht Express in Brisbane. Duet and Daybreak crossed the Pacific together so it’s only appropriate for them to come home together. All three will be disembarking in Ensenada.




Nordhavn 50 Duet has successfully completed a Pacific crossing and is now lying in Australia. Ron and Nancy Goldberg began Leg one of their Pacific passage in Mexico two years ago, arriving in the Marquesas Islands, and spent the entire time since then cruising French Polynesia. They left about a month ago and arrived in Australia on January 9. What’s most remarkable is the couple have somehow managed to enjoy their incredible cruising lifestyle while both still hold down jobs. Read more


Salesman Eric Leishman and Project Manager Mike Jensen inspect progress of Nordhavn 60#80 with customers the Cummings at South Coast factory earlier today at the South Coast factory in China. While there, Eric and Mike will also check on 5278 before it gets ready to ship to Florida for commissioning in a couple of weeks.

This is how you spend Black Friday as a Nordhavn owner. N46 owner Mark Middleman spent the day cruising to Cuttyhunk Island off the coast of Massachusetts. A brisk hike around the island was a perfect post Thanksgiving activity.

Friday at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show


Nordhavn and Vripack announced at a joint press conference yesterday morning at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, the collaboration between their two companies on optional interior concepts aimed at the new Nordhavn 80 and larger boats in the line. 

The press conference was highlighted with a virtual tour via 3-D goggles that allowed editors the opportunity to explore throughout the conceptual interiors.

“We are excited about the opportunities that exist from the joining of creative forces between our two innovative companies,” said Jim Leishman, vice president of Nordhavn.

Nordhavn has been creating exceptional interiors for years but its focus is to bring additional options to the table aimed at pleasing buyers’ different tastes and styles. Vripack, based in Amsterdam, is one of Europe’s foremost leaders in yacht design.

Nordhavn 56 MS Ata Marie departs Rhode Island this morning bound for the Chesapeake and will take her place at the Nordhavn display as part of the Annapolis Power Boat Show. The MS is the economic-minded boater's dream, a beautiful sailor that runs splendidly in a stiff breeze and performs superbly as a trawler. She's definitely worth a look. The Annapolis Power Boat Show runs next Thursday through Sunday.

Norman and Clarice Gregory, owners of 4650 Salish Aire, stopped by the PAE Headquarters to receive their 10,000 nm pennant. Congratulations Norman and Clarice!
