|The distinct styling of the 62 has been a Nordhavn hallmark for a dozen years, and the 68 captures the essence of her smaller sister. Yet it incorporates the latest thinking in design, systems and technology and packages it all into a beamier, heartier hull. And despite the size advantage, this vessel will just as easily be managed by a cruising couple without need for captain and crew. Stepping onto the boat, the massive size of the 21-foot wide expanse will be immediately felt. The 68 carries its beam further aft and has a higher freeboard forward, thus providing more room on the inside. Offered in both an asymmetrical and dual-walkaround layout, the huge saloon will be an ideal gathering area for when the boat plays host to larger groups. Meanwhile, cooking for the masses will be a snap in the big gourmet galley with such features as granite countertops and SubZero appliances. Because the 68 is an aft pilothouse model, the foredeck is open so there are deck hatches for lots of light and ventilation. This is especially noticeable in the sumptuous master stateroom. Located just two steps down and forward from the saloon/galley area, the bright and airy cabin offers its owners a pleasant haven for an afternoon nap or good nights sleep. Guests will be treated to two luxurious staterooms located down a staircase just off the galley/saloon. Two heads one ensuite are swathed in granite and the finest fixtures. Situated just across the hall from the staterooms is the roomy, state-of-the-art engine room with its 62 ceiling. Purring along will be a 400-hp single Dietroit Diesel Series 60 14L engine that will drive forward the 180,000 lb. boat at a cruising speed of 9.5 kts.
