A rare opportunity to own an outstanding blue-water passage maker from the long-established and world-renown leader in advanced long-distance cruising, motor yacht design - Nordhavn

Challenging the prevailing trends of the marine industry for light, go-fast boats, Nordhavn instead, concentrated on pioneering a high performance yet sea kindly ocean passage maker that would easily handle any heavy sea and wind crossing whilst also providing a quality of safety, luxurious comfort and functionality, second to none.

In fact, no other production boat, sail or power, has experienced as many successful circumnavigations or ocean crossings as the Nordhavn 46

Arcturus show cases every one of these advanced innovations and then some. Having cruised the US and Alaskan coastal waters; crossed the Pacific, explored the fjords of New Zealand, cruised Australia's Great Barrier Reef and in more recent years, SE Asia - Arcturus is fully equipped for a totally independent lifestyle - whether far out at sea, snug in a marina or floating serenely in a far flung and exotic anchorage.

Featuring Nordhavn's legendary modern day classic trawler/bridge design - Arcturus is easy to handle and her powerful bow thruster and sizeable supported rudder make her a breeze to maneuver in tight marina spaces.

Capable of running in very rough seas in any direction, Arcturus' gently curved chine and rounded ballasted hull deliver a soft, comfortable motion.

There are no harsh, jarring motions characteristic of many hard chine, semi-displacement hulls. Instead, she presents a more natural, friendly shape to unfriendly seas.

Arcturus is also one of only a few of these famous 46' designs cruising the globe with some major customised features including:

Gyro controlled and hydraulically operated, Niaid hull stabiliser fins, which not only eliminate nearly all roll in heavy seas but also help steer a straighter course in adverse conditions - delivering greater fuel economy.

An additional 38hp independent wing diesel engine 'get home motor' with independent fuel, electrics, shaft and folding propeller - with only 26hrs its virtually in mint condition and provides extra peace of mind where ever you cruise;

Custom fitted bow bulb, which enables Arcturus to sits higher in the water and ride up and over oncoming swells with without digging her nose in like other motor cruisers.

Now with the entire saloon and extensive galley having been professionally stripped, sanded and 2 pack varnish sprayed; new upholstery installed throughout; genset and main engine overhauled plus recently antifouled, Arcturus rests in almost mint condition.

With full tanks, an extensive array of top of the line electronics and navigational equipment plus enough spares and provisions aboard to take you around the globe in comfort, style and safety - Arcturus waits patiently in Pangkor Island Marina, Malaysia to show her next crew the world.

Could that be you?
