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

Taking advantage of the enormous volume of this hull, the Nordhavn 86 offers accommodations that are nothing short of remarkable. The saloon and galley measures 36 feet in length, the master cabin and head are full width consuming the whole forward/upper section of the vessel and the combination of wheelhouse, captain’s cabin and sky lounge measure almost 30 feet in length. In addition to the master stateroom and captain’s cabin, the vessel includes three guest staterooms with ensuite heads and an additional crew cabin and head aft with an interior and exterior entrance. A laundry and utility room are also provided. The luxurious and functional interior is finished with fine hardwoods, beautiful moldings and raised panels combined with stone floors, granite countertops, the finest hardware, lighting and fixtures. Construction of the 86 is conventional fiberglass, built to extremely heavy scantlings using beautifully constructed female molds for the entire hull and deck. Starting with a seamless structure, flawless, a highly detailed gelcoated finish (possible only with this molding process), the Nordhavn flagship will further receive a complete Awlgrip(tm) paint job prior to assembly. A combination of the highly detailed molding and the superior luster and maintainability of the Awlgrip(tm) paint will result in a yacht finish to the highest possible standard. Designed and built to the latest international standards, each new Nordhavn 86 can be built to ABS certification with +A1 Yachting Service rating for the hull and AMS rating for machinery and installation as an option.
