Nordhavn announces partnership with Vripack
Nordhavn is excited to announce it is collaborating with renowned Dutch yacht design firm, Vripack, on the creation of alternative interior options. The first project will be the Nordhavn 80 and the two companies unveiled renderings at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last week with a 3-D virtual immersion experience.
The new designs convey a sense of Hygge, a Scandinavian term that defines a mood of coziness, comfort and contentment. Rooms have a contemporary aesthetic and are filled with muted woods and neutral tones, while the sky lounge is infused with a punch of color.
Nordhavn has been regarded for its interiors in the recent past, even winning an IYAA interior design award for Nordhavn 96 Lacey Kay last year, and will continue to offer classic nautical American interiors. But in an effort to cater to more international buyers with different tastes, Nordhavn reached out to Vripack and their proven experience in that market.
“The Nordhavn name has always been synonymous with the highest quality and capability and we are proud to collaborate with Vripack, Europe’s premiere yacht design and engineering firm,” said vice-president and co-owner of Nordhavn Jim Leishman. “It is Nordhavn and Vripack’s mutual intent to offer our clients the most comfortable, safe and luxurious Expedition Class yachts available. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with new and exciting projects and virtually no limits on what we can accomplish together going forward.”
The Nordhavn 80 is the newest yacht to be featured in the brand’s twelve-model product line. Bridging the gap between the venerable Nordhavn 76 and our N86/96/100 hulls, the N80 offers the client a large yet manageable yacht. She will be a beautiful modern passagemaker that incorporates functionality, luxury, and capability. And with four staterooms, room for two crew and plenty of areas for entertaining, emphasis can be placed on sharing experiences with many guests. Indeed, the Nordhavn 80 is the passport to adventure for the new era family.
