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.

*************************PRELIMINARY LISTING***************************

The Nordhavn 46 is the result of years of experience and research done in recognition of the need for a yacht possessing world cruising capability that is manageable by today's cruising couple. The 46-foot Long Range Cruiser offers a combination of technical features, luxury accommodations, overall performance, and aesthetic appeal. This vessel will travel comfortably, quietly, reliably, and safely at 8.5 knots. The Nordhavn 46 is a serious offshore powerboat designed for the sailor who desires the advantages of a power boat. Underway, the aft deck is quiet and exhaust-free (just like sailing). The displacement hull, with its gracefully designed transom, provides a comfortable ride and creates a minimum wake at cruising speed.  The large main salon leaves room for an outside passageway on the starboard side. The port side provides space for handling dock - spring lines, and boarding doors on both the port side and the starboard side provide easy boarding. A Portuguese bridge wraps completely around the wheelhouse, and a door in the bridge coaming allows easy access to the foredeck. The entire deck area is finished with a non-skid raised molded diamond pattern. There is adequate room on the boat deck for the large inflatable rigid tender and the yacht's boom is used to raise and lower to the water. The spar accommodates instrumentation, antennas, and  a radar.  The wheelhouse is located amidships where the pitching motion of the yacht is felt least, a detail that is important in offshore conditions. The position of the wheelhouse combined with the forward angle of the windows, Portuguese bridge coaming, and high bows make piloting safe and comfortable in all conditions. The offwatch partner can sleep within reaching distance of the person on watch, which is particularly important on a couple-crewed yacht. The settee back folds up making the single-watch bunk into a comfortable double berth. The wheelhouse is an excellent place to dine, as it offers a panoramic view and cross-ventilation through open windows and doors. The owner's stateroom is forward with plenty of natural ventilation provided through opening hull ports and on deck, dorade-type vents. Included are queen-size berth, vanity, and two large hanging lockers. The guest stateroom features a large double-berth, with an opposing settee - single-berth. The stateroom has excellent ventilation, a separate head with stall shower and spacious hanging lockers  The main salon's open and airy living area measures eleven feet by twelve feet and an L-shaped settee and two easy chairs provide seating for six. Opening marine windows provide ventilation, light and a view of the yacht's surroundings. The partially shaded after deck is accessed through a large sliding door. Out of the main stream of salon traffic, the efficiently designed galley has abundant storage and counter space, and there is an abundance of natural light and ventilation. The engine room is accessed via a walk-in door in the guest cabin or hatches in the salon floor. Numerous large hatches are provided within the main salon solely for major repair or removal of equipment, and a small hatch and ladder are provided when access through the head compartment is impractical. There's adequete head room within the engine compartment and space is provided for easy maintenance of engines, generator, and the ship's machinery. A true ocean going yacht, the deep entry of the displacement hull eliminates pounding, and the easier entry and increased weight cause less deceleration and acceleration as the vessel passes through head seas. Running off the wind, the displacement hull with its full-length keel offers better directional control and is easier to handle for helmsman or autopilot. The true displacement hull provides maximum stability, seakindliness, and economy. If you are serious about crossing oceans or just want the
