For the astute buyer, this well maintained Nordhavn is ready in all aspects, to cruise both the tropical waters of northern Australia and beyond, or head south for some of the best cruising in the world around our southern coastline and then across to NZ. Australian Taxes have been paid and vessel is fully imported.
The Nordhavn Trawlers are highly regarded for their high quality construction, and long-range offshore capabilities. This vessel not only represents the finest example of these attributes, she also exceeds factory specifications in key areas. She is equipped to serve as an extremely capable passage maker for any voyage one would care to undertake. While doing so, she will surround the owners and guests in Nordhavn's traditional handcrafted joinery, thoughtful attention to detail and spacious comfortable accommodations. She's a distinct breed and ready to go the distance. Her pilothouse command bridge offers a full suite of recently updated navigation and communications equipment as described below, along with a commanding view of the waters while being well protected by the Nordhavn signature Portuguese bridge. Yet the skipper is not isolated, thanks to a generous and comfortable L shaped settee and dinette table for off watch guests.
This 50 ft Nordhavn has a bulbous bow, and the two stateroom layout, featuring a master stateroom with walk around island berth amid ships and large guest double cabin forward, both with ensuite. A large leather lounge in the saloon also converts into a double bed for the extra guests. The Nordhavn 50 has been one of the most popular models in the Nordhavn line, and features a very attractive look and profile. Current owners are presenting their beautiful Nordhavn 50 for sale, fully imported and inclusive of all Australian taxes and duties.

The asymmetrical layout allows extra interior saloon space and galley with the port cabin side extending to the port rail. Enter the salon through the cockpit/aft saloon door. To starboard just inside the door is the entertainment unit and recliner black leather Directors chair with foot rest, matching the settee to port that pulls out to a double bed. At the forward end of the saloon to port is the galley, with generous counter space, and double bowl sink conveniently located at the outboard corner of the galley, with ample drawer and locker storage. The dishwasher and garbage compactor make the galley any cook's dream. To starboard of the galley companionway steps lead up to the pilot house. Two large opening windows and four fixed windows in the saloon provide good natural lighting, visibility and ventilation to this important section of the vessel. Blinds fitted in main saloon.
As it is the hub of the boat, the Helm chair is positioned to watch over all instruments and have wonderful visibility at the same time. The seating for off-watch guests fits four persons comfortably around a polished timber table and most meals will be taken here. The extra monitor screens can be seen from all seating. Storage under the seating is valuable for extra space. There is plenty of room for the instrument placement on the console, and state of the art electronics.
Three exterior docking stations along with the main helm station make docking in all conditions and positions a very easy matter.
On the starboard side of the pilot house, inside companionway steps have direct access to the master stateroom, ensuite, guest stateroom and guest's ensuite. Both rooms have ample hanging and storage space. The engine room access door is in the aft bulkhead of the master stateroom. The master stateroom has an athwart-ship queen size bed with hanging lockers fore and aft, drawer storage under and beside the bed and a large dressing mirror on the forward bulkhead. Access to the master ensuite is to starboard, inside the master stateroom. Teak & cherry floors and carpet feature throughout the boat.
New carpet fitted throughout. (05-2017)


The transom has a very useful swim step and transom door to the aft cockpit. From the cockpit there is access to the foredeck via the starboard side deck. There is a boarding door in the bulwark of the starboard side deck at midships. At the forward end of the side deck are steps up to the pilothouse deck and Portuguese bridge, and foredeck.
The foredeck is well-designed for working. Just forward of the Portuguese bridge are deck gear storage lockers. All the way forward is the ground tackle handling area, where the windlass, anchor locker deck hatch, and anchor rollers channels are situated in an area of the deck moulded to contain mud and debris. All decks drain to the waterline to prevent streaking of the hull with residue. A full cover for the foredeck prevents the sun from fading gel-coat and offers shade to the guest stateroom so the hatch can be left open for the breezes.
Following the Portuguese bridge to port allows access to the port pilothouse door and steps up to the upper boat deck. The boat deck may also be accessed from the cockpit ladder aft. On the boat deck are the tender, davit with replaced dyneema at over twice rated capacity, and liferaft cradle. There is a lot of room on the boat deck for the additional deck box storage ( newly installed 08-2017) and lounging.
