Description

Thanks to the feedback of the P.A.E. staff as well as Nordhavn owners who have logged hundreds of thousands of miles offshore, the N55 has been designed to provide maximum comfort underway and while living aboard during extended cruises. The high bow provides extra buoyancy when punching into large head seas, and the higher deck takes on less blue water during rough conditions. The added height provides significantly more volume below the cabin sole. In relationship to the accommodations, the engine, fuel tanks and water tanks are very low, ensuring superior stability. The use of fiberglass fuel tanks adds to the trouble free, long-term service of the boat.Of special note, the tanks have human-sized inspection plates and because the baffles are removable, a service technician can actually enter the tank and thoroughly clean it of contaminated fuel and algae residue. The Nordhavn 55 shows her serious side in her commercial-like pilothouse. Located amidships for minimal motion at sea, it provides excellent, 360? visibility. A full-sized helm chair puts the captain comfortably in command of his ship, with all electronics and controls within sight and reach. Aft of the helm chair, an L-shaped settee and table, elevated for superior visibility, will seat three to four crewmembers. Beneath the settee are full-sized chart drawers and additional storage. But the most surprising feature of the N55's pilothouse is its private stateroom complete with head and double-sized berth. Perfect for the off-watch crew on long passages, this area will also serve as a private guest stateroom. The Nordhavn 55 has been designed to incorporate a flying bridge as standard. Located directly over the pilothouse, it provides excellent visibility and is the ideal place to run the vessel in fair weather. With a waterline of slightly more than 50-feet, the Nordhavn 55 has an efficient hull speed of 9.5 knots and under full load conditions, a range of 1500 nautical miles. At 8.25 knots, her range will be 3,000 nautical miles.

Additional Description

Long a Nordhavn feature, the main saloon opens directly to the aft cockpit, which is on the same level. This design effectively expands the living area from the inside to the outside, and when fitted with optional side curtains, the cockpit becomes an extension of the saloon, even in foul weather. The asymmetrical cabin design allows for a wider main saloon and galley and features a wide side deck on the starboard side. A large, L-shaped settee and beautifully finished teak table are adjacent to two comfortable reading chairs. Two bar chairs face the pass-through counter top in the galley, which is two steps down from the saloon. With full-sized home-style appliances, abundant storage cabinets and generous counter space, the galley will please the most demanding chef. Standard equipment includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator with icemaker, a 4-burner Thermadore stove and oven, a GE microwave/convection oven, a Broan trash compactor, G.E. dishwasher and GE top-load freezer. The owner's stateroom is on the same level as the galley, and it is located amidships, where the motion is least objectionable during passages and while at anchor. A queen sized, walk-around berth, two hanging lockers and a spacious head complete with a shower/bath tub rival the space of most home bedrooms. Forward is a spacious guest cabin with double sized berth, huge hanging locker, office area and private head with stall shower.

Additional Description

Main propulsion is provided by a John Deere 330 hp diesel engine that turns a 3 1/2-inch Aquamet shaft via a 4:1 reduction ZF transmission. This amount of reduction allows the 40" prop to turn slowly, greatly reducing noise and vibration. A dry exhaust, a signature design element of all Nordhavns, eliminates the need for a large through-hull and raw water pump, greatly reducing the risk of failure at sea.
