The New Nordhavn 52 Coastal Pilot

Nordhavn recently announced its brand new 52-foot Coastal Pilot as the latest design to come off the drawing board. Less than a week after unveiling the drawings, we received our first commitment to build. The N52 CP takes over the role vacated by her smaller sister, the popular N35 Coastal Pilot. How will the N52 CP differ from the N35 CP? How will the N52 CP differ from the rest of the Nordhavn line? And how will the N52 separate itself from the rest of the semi-displacement cruising boats in its class? Pacific Asian Enterprises (P.A.E.)’s vice president, Jim Leishman, explains:

“To me, the Nordhavn 52 Coastal Pilot is the perfect boat for the couple who doesn’t want to cross oceans, but is interested in doing extreme coastal cruising. She’ll be a proper, serious coastal cruising boat still able to handle major itineraries. We’re not talking going to Hawaii, but if you want to run from Maine to Alaska, this will be a capable vessel to do it more

Join us in Palm Beach

If you were unable to attend the Miami boat shows last month, you may want to check out Nordhavn’s display at the tomorrow’s Palm Beach International Boat Show. Nordhavn will once again take part in Passagemaker’s Trawler Port section at the Palm Beach show, which runs March 22-25. The team at Nordhavn’s southeast office will be located at slips 213 and 214. The exhibit includes a recently listed 2008 Nordhavn 40. For more information, you can email us at or visit the show’s website

Miami Round-Up

Nordhavn enjoyed one of its busiest shows in years at last month’s Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show. Nordhavn 64 Sweet Hope provided an excellent example of Nordhavn quality and craftsmanship. On February 17th, the company hosted its annual Miami show Nordhavn Owners gathering. About 50 current owners, some past owners and even some prospective owners assembled at the Nordhavn display for some beverages, conversation and camaraderie. Topics trending within the crowd were discussions of possible owner-organized rendezvous: one, a summer gathering in Nova Scotia; the other, a 2013 winter/spring get-together in the Bahamas. Typical Nordhavn fare! Check out the good time had by all in these pictures taken by Nordhavn 72 owner Kathy Clark.
