Manufacturer Info



This line of true, ocean-going passagemakers is offered by Pacific Asian Enterprises in Dana Point, California, which closely supervises the production of the power yachts in Taiwan. Nordhavns are full-displacement motor vessels with exceptional range and seakeeping ability. Each model–from the Nordhavn 40 on the low end to the 120-foot flagship–is built stout and tough and designed to punch through heavy head seas and track down swell as if on rails. Nordhavns attract owners with serious cruising plans, those who are extremely comfortable traveling blue water for extended periods of time. These owners are proud of the Nordhavn history, too. In 1989, for instance, the Nordhavn N46 debuted as the first production passagemaker. More than 80 of those groundbreaking hulls were sold. Today, many of those boats continue to carry their current owners to all corners of the globe.

Additional Comments:

Orplid is very well priced with a huge inventory of equipment onboard. The current owner is a motivated seller who is thinking about his next Nordhavn.

Orplid is VAT paid and still has the best of the summer cruising in front of her.

Manufacturer Provided Description

With 45 hulls sold, the Nordhavn 40 has established herself as the most capable ship of her size with both a circumnavigation and an Atlantic crossing under her belt. This boat was great to begin with, but the minds at PAE set out to refine her and keep her at the top of her game The redesigned 40 will be the same boat technically speaking, but her level of fit and finish will resemble the craftsmanship that the rest of the Nordhavn line has become famous for. Now standard are granite countertops in the head and galley, higher quality teak with enough varnish to fill the grain resulting in a perfect finish, a superior class of exterior stainless including a new stainless rub rail, and a redesigned hull/deck joint that accomplishes a precision fit. Upon inspection, the most obvious change will be in the pilothouse and saloon windows which were enlarged and fitted with 1D2-inch thick tempered glass for more visibility, more light and more durability. There were other small improvements made in the engine room and owners cabin for easier maneuverability.
