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.

Boat Description

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 night’s 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 6’2” 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.
