REJOICE is an exceptional example of an optimally maintained Nordhavn 43 and shows like new. She includes the finest combination of factory upgrades and custom equipment added by the owners, resulting in a vessel that is set up to cross oceans and venture on extended long-range cruises. Each system has been thoroughly tested and used, so she is ready to go at a moments notice. If you are considering a non flybridge 43, this one is loaded. She has been actively cruised on both coasts of the US. "Rejoice" has been a great pleasure for her owners to operate and is being reluctantly sold due to health issues.
REJOICE is a full displacement trawler type vessel with proven long-range capabilities. She has a nice entry cockpit with boarding doors on both sides and an access door to her swim step. Below the cockpit is a large lockable lazarette that gives excellent access to the steering gear, the inverter, hot water tank, heater and water maker, as well as providing ample storage space.
The salon is entered from the cockpit through a robust watertight and double dogged commercial strength Dutch door. The salon, a very large room that connects with the galley, has an open feel due largely to the large size windows finished with teak trim. The interior is tastefully decorated with Ultra-leather upholstery and features beautiful wood floors highlighted throughout the boat by custom two inch reveal carpet. In the salon, custom Duette shades provide the privacy one requires while dockside and helps control temperature inside. To starboard is a comfortable U shaped settee and a fixed table. To port is another settee and a 26" LCD TV mounted in the aft port corner. There is significant storage space beneath each settee.
The elegant galley is highlighted by a 24" Viking stove, two Sub Zero refrigerators, a freezer, microwave and trash compacter.
Going up a few steps you arrive in the spacious pilothouse that features a Stidd helm chair forward with excellent nav/com display arrangement and a bench seat with table and watch berth aft. There are two robust watertight and double dogged commercial strength Dutch doors on either side of the pilothouse leading to the Portuguese bridge.
The staterooms are forward and below. The guest stateroom has a wide double berth to port, a desk with an upgraded swing out seat to starboard and its own head and shower. The guest stateroom gets plenty of light from three portholes as well as overhead hatches in the stateroom and head. The master stateroom is located amidships with an island queen berth athwartships (that has a custom Tempur-Pedic mattress) and a separate head with a very large shower. The owners stateroom is lighted by two portholes as well as one in the shower area.
The engine room is accessed by a sound proof door in the master (or through the sole of the salon) and offers an unusually large serviceable area for a vessel this size. The main engine is on center-line, surrounded by a stainless steel rail for safety. The wing engine is aft to port and the generator is aft to starboard. An excellent fuel management/filtration system is located on the starboard wall.
The foredeck has two lockable deck boxes for storage as well as an upgraded heavy duty chain stopper for the main rode. There is a large and easily accessible chain locker with two shelves, one on the port side for a second rode and one to starboard for storage. Custom hooks have been added above the starboard shelf for line storage.
The boat deck is accessed from the Portuguese bridge and stores a 12.5 Avon tender with a 25 H.P. outboard and a large lockable deck box for additional storage.
