Nordhavn 40 Mark II
Every decade or so a yacht is designed that is extraordinarily successful by all measures. The Nordhavn 40 is one such yacht. Proportions are wonderfully pleasing, while at the same time highly functional. Aesthetic attraction is universal, performance is exemplary, and the ideal balance between subjective and objective qualities is achieved. One design having all of these characteristics is rare, and it invariably becomes a classic by which others are measured. In the highly specialized world of oceangoing, recreational power vessels, the Nordhavn 40 has achieved the legendary status of a modern-day classic. Born from the driving passion of the founders of Pacific Asian Enterprises, P.A.E., the N40 was from the very beginning a design that broke the marketing and styling rules of the day. From the very beginning, the Nordhavn 40 has stood out from all other ‘trawler yachts.” There is nothing in comparable size on the market that could compare with its offshore ability, economical operation and luxurious accommodations.
