Nordhavn

Nordhavn

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

Based on the hull form and specifications of the N72, the simple goal of the 76 was to create a small superyacht which was true to the rugged ocean going heritage of other Nordhavns while at the same time stunning in her elegance, fit and finish, systems and engineering. An interior decorator was commissioned to up the degree of style most megayachts are known for - including crown moldings, granite, leather, well-engineered lighting, and the finest appliances. Though a little more glitzy, there’s no denying that a Nordhavn exists at the heart of this boat. Numerous handrails, half-inch tempered glass windows, watertight doors and bulkheads and many other features essential for safe operation offshore. Like the 72, the fact that this boat is so complete, a regular options list does not exist. Standard on the 76 is chilled water air conditioning, TRAC stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, Marquipt davit, wing engine, dry exhaust, two inverters, 20 batteries, windlass and ground tackle, and a lot more. Simply add your electronics package, tenders on deck, personal affects you’re ready to go. The highly developed standard AC and DC electrical systems on the N76 achieve a new level of sophistication for Nordhavn and allow for semi-automatic operation of this feature-packed vessel by a small crew or even one couple. A choice that the buyer of an N76 is given is whether or not to have a bulbous bow or conventional bow. The N76 hull mold has two different bow configurations (conventional and bulbous) which are interchangeable and set up prior to hull lamination. The bulbous bow provides benefits but also has an unpleasant side to it and thus has become somewhat controversial in recent years. We will discuss with you your intended use of your Nordhavn 76 and help you decide which bow configuration is right for you.

Additional Description

The standard propulsion configuration of the N76 is classic Nordhavn. The single main engine is the highly respected Detroit Diesel series 60 in the 535HP configuration and with its 25,000-hour life expectancy, should outlast most of us. Dry exhaust and keel cooling are standard as is the Lugger 668 wing engine. The N76 is also available in a twin-engine configuration. Through clever design and forethought during the tooling phase of the project, keel molds for the twin engine layout were built and can be inserted into the main hull mold prior to lamination. This feature provides twin keels and protection for the shafts and propellers of the twin screw layout.
