Follow ing the unparalleled success of the Nordhavn 76 with its sophisticated systems and construction features, PAE's design, engineering and manufacturing team was ready for a larger vessel and at 86 feet, with a 24-foot beam, Sol & Sons is more than impressive at first sight.

Taking advantage of the enormous capacity of this hull, the Nordhavn 86 offers accommodations that are nothing short of remarkable. Her full load displacement of over 400,000 pounds allows her to compare with many vessels well over 100 feet. She was built to ABS standards with +A1 Yachting Service rating for the Hull and AMS rating for machinery and installation. No expense has been spared in the outfitting and care of this magnificent Nordhavn! Kept in top condition by her knowledgeable owner and again is now ready to take her new owners anywhere in the world they wish to travel.
