The Nordhavn brand boasts a global reputation for creating the ultimate expedition style, bluewater capable, quality motor cruisers. The Nordhavn 40 is truely designed for the most discerning sailor, and offers the safety and capability to cross oceans in the upmost comfort. The iconic profile is immediately recognisable, with its high free board, full pilothouse, and the attention to detail that only Nordhavn can provide. This vessel is an excellent example of the design having been meticulously maintained by two highly experienced owners from new. Having completed over 30,000NMs of offshore cruising, taking her crew to some incredible locations, the vessel remarkably presents in immaculate condition throughout. The current owners have spared no expense in maintaining the vessel to the highest standard with regular upgrades. This now presents a rare opportunity to secure one of Nordhavn's most popular vessels, offered as a true turn key package! Whether you plan to cross oceans, cruise the local waterways, or somewhere in between, this is a vessel that can do it all in safety and comfort!

Stepping inside, the quality of the timber work and finishes is immediately evident. The stunning saloon offers panoramic views, and is an ideal place to both relax or entertain. To starboard is a timber dinette with seating for 6 in comfort. The well appointed U shaped galley is cleverly designed to be easy to use when cruising in any conditions. It boasts all the amenities of a small apartment including Corian bench tops, extensive fridge and freezer space, gas stove with oven, and microwave. There is also ample food storage for longer passages, and the galley and all cupboards feature LED lighting. Just a few easy steps down takes you into the accommodation of the vessel. The spacious master stateroom is forward, and has a centre line island double berth, extensive storage and hanging space. This would certainly make a comfortable full time live aboard! To starboard is the private bathroom with large separate shower bay. Again, the fit out and finishes are of the highest quality, and there is even a wall mounted heater and towel dryer for extra comfort. Opposite the bathroom is the second private cabin. This features two bunks, the lower can either be a single or extend out to a small double. Additional accommodation is available in both the pilothouse and saloon when required.

The iconic feature of the Nordhavn is its exceptional pilothouse which we can liken to a ship style. This is perfectly set up for serious cruising with features like reverse-angle windows to cut down on glare, excellent visibility, fold down chart table, and even a comfortable pilot berth. This vessel's inventory of electronics is absolutely incredible and truely lacks nothing for extended offshore passages.

This vessel is powered by a fastidiously maintained 105HP Lugger Diesel engine which lives in the immaculate engine room. This is a real hallmark of a Nordhavn, where features like a moulded fiberglass floors, neat wire runs, gravity-fed fuel tanks, an oil change system, and oversized fuel filters call attention to the builder's pride in workmanship. The Lugger offers exceptional economy, reliability, and long range capability. Thanks to the vessels highly efficient, full displacement hull design and a fuel capacity of over 3,400 litres, this vessel fully loaded for an ocean crossing can cover over 2,400NMs cruising at 7 knots! With this range, the possibilities for exploring the worlds most pristine and remote locations is limited only by your imagination. The vessel is also fitted with active Niad stabilisers which provide a comfortable ride in even the most challenging conditions.

This is a vessel that really has to been seen to be fully appreciated. Everywhere you look, the attention to detail, quality of construction, and extra features, are easily apparent. The inventory of this vessel is extensive, and maintenance has been completed to the highest degree.
