Rare Factory Hard Dodger Version - one of only 7 built by Norseman

Very well cared for turn key Blue Water Cruiser capable of taking you and your family anywhere in the world.

Current survey (8/15/18) shows market value at $575,000.

Present owner (12 years) has cruised Fort Lauderdale, Abacos, Exumas, Key West, Caymans, Cartegena, Panama, Puerta Vallarta, La Paz, Cabo San Lucas, San Diego, San Francisco, Victoria BC.

Prior owners cruised her round the world and Australia.

53.5 ft on deck with 14.4 foot beam and 6.5 foot draft her mast is 73 feet over her deck (not suitable for intra-coastal.) She is one of 7 total world wide and the only one with the original factory built hard dodger.

Closest similar boats in build quality and layout would be a Hallberg Rassey or Hylas although in many respects with her FRP laminated hull and encapsulated keel, she is superior. She is the very big brother of the legendary Norseman 447 by Bob Perry and Cary Grant.

Her Wiseman Mercedes diesel is of similar strength and longevity as a Gardiner. Her Reckmann furlers and  powered winches and cutter rig make her capable of single handed sailing.

Her teak decks have been removed and her deck hardware has been polished. She carries extensive tools and spares ($5,000-$15,000) including starter and alternators (12V and 24V) a locker for dive tanks and an on board air compressor.

Forward stateroom opens to a semi-private head with telephone booth stall shower.

Aft is the crew/child quarters with over under bunks, the tool room, the main salon, galley and nav station.

Mid ship is a captains bunk and engine room.

Aft is the owner's cabin with king sized tempurpedic covered mattress with make-up station and private head with second enclosed stall shower.

AV systems include fresh Blue Tooth enabled Onkyo receiver, Samsung 40" flat screen and Blue Ray with 4 NHT speakers and Polk sub-woofer in the main cabin and 20" Westinghouse TV/DVD player in aft cabin.

Ray marine electronics with a repeater at the topside nav station.

She has a fresh windlass, a spare Bruce anchor, and 145 feet of freshly inspected and painted chain.

Webasto heating and Cruiseair air conditioning.

Equipped with both AC and DC refrigeration systems.

 

She is a lot of boat for her price!

Oil Samples

2019 Oil samples: Fantastic and will within "Normal" limits

From oil sample report from BLACKSTONE LABORATORIES:

"Your OM 352 is wearing well based on this data. Universal averages for this type of engine show typical wear levels after about 65 hours of oil use. You went 100 hours on this oil and wear metals are average or lower. That shows internal parts are in great shape at 8,900 total hours. That means we don't see any reason to rebuild this engine just yet. It's wearing well! The only mark on this report is for a low flashpoint, which shows just a trace of fuel dilution. Small amounts like that are from normal operation, not a fuel system problem. This oil can see more use."
