New option for full-displacement N52 offers open concept living
We are excited to offer a new optional layout for our full-displacement 52-footer. Introducing the Nordhavn 52 AC (Aft Cabin) which features a configuration that puts the saloon, galley and wheelhouse all on one level. This customer-driven option meets the needs of clients who are looking for modern, open-concept living that allows the watchstander to mingle with guests. “It’s a very nice layout,” commented P.A.E.’s chief of design, Jeff Leishman. “It will be well suited for the harbor hopping type of cruising that many people enjoy, where night watches are generally kept to a minimum.”
The N52 AC requires a different deck from the traditional N52, which features a segregated pilothouse. The current 52 also has its accommodations more forward with obviously differentiated master suite and guest suite. Instead, the N52 AC concept offers two VIP staterooms with ensuite heads. “The owners may have a difficult decision deciding which cabin they designate as the master,” notes Leishman.
Another major difference between the two full-displacement N52s will be in outdoor living space. Whereas the flybridge on the current N52 is split from the boat deck, the plans for the N52 AC call for a huge combination flybridge/boat deck, which offers cruisers plenty of space for sunbathing when the dinghies are launched. Meanwhile on the lower deck, the N52 AC’s cockpit will include a separate lower “fishing” cockpit.
The engine room will also get a boost in space, complete with a handy work bench.
The N52 AC will have a propulsion option of single or twin engines, and will offer the same fuel capacity as the Nordhavn 47 (1,470 gals.).
