Why do more serious cruisers choose Nordhavns to circumnavigate and cross oceans in than any other brand?
In a few words, confidence, reputation,
The very first Nordhavn was designed
specifically to cross oceans, unheard of in the
pleasure motorboating world 30 years ago.
Today there are many look-alikes, but close
inspection will reveal differences that are
mission critical to world cruising.
Quite simply, our boats are engineered for the
task. Nordhavn's heavy displacement,
ballasted, full keel hull and skeg-hung rudder
provide protection to a large, efficient
slow-turning prop and help to make vast
distances attainable, safe and comfortable.
Others' semi-displacement hulls with smaller
props and rudders suffer in rough conditions
where slower speeds can mean a loss of
control while their lightweight structures don't
provide the security necessary for prolonged
offshore use. Plus, Nordhavn systems are the
best available and superior design makes
access and routine maintenance easy. No one
has our advanced fuel management system,
designed to handle all conceivable situations
while cruising the worlds oceans.
It's a fact: no other long-range yacht
manufacturer is held in as high regard as
Nordhavn. Perhaps that's why other yacht
brands so often model themselves after
Nordhavn. But looks alone do not a world-class
cruiser make. Consider keel coolers and a
dry stack exhaust which enhance reliability and
comfort plus make many years of trouble free
operation possible. Add to this, molded
fiberglass fuel and water tanks - more
expensive, yes, but vital when you consider
how the elements take their toll on lesser
