Ten years ago, it was a unique sight to see a Nordhavn cruising the waters of the South Pacificand the Indian Ocean but today it’s become a preferred destination for Nordhavn owners. Australia, New Zealand, the western Pacific Islands, Indonesia, Thailand and surrounding areas offer endless variety and adventures, and are now included as ‘must see’ in many Nordhavn owners’ cruising itineraries.
Those who own a Nordhavn, or aspire to own one, know the score: There is a big difference between a recreational “trawler” and a true oceangoing passagemaker like a Nordhavn. The ability to power with confidence across any sea or ocean in safety and comfort is chief among reasons experienced boaters go to Nordhavn whether their adventures are coastal, global or anywhere in between.
In 2001 Nordhavn became the first builder to take one of its own boats, a smaller N40, around the world – a feat that was accomplished in 27 weeks and has yet to be matched – or even attempted – by any other builder. At present Nordhavn offers the fullest line of true deep-sea passagemakers with more than 15 models ranging from 40 feet to 120 feet in length.
