Nordhavn’s popular Distance Pennant Program was created to recognize the many Nordhavn owners and their great accomplishments of traveling the world’s oceans and enjoying the adventures of a lifetime. It is interesting to note that the average miles traveled is a little under half of a circumnavigation for each registered owner. Our goal is to reach 100 percent registration of all Nordhavns built and enter all of the miles traveled by previous owners.
From the earliest days of the age of sail up to the present time, the history of flags and the history of the sea have been intertwined. From at least the early 19th century, it has been the custom of ships returning from a long overseas deployment to fly an extra long commission pennant made up of whatever bunting could be assembled.
In the Royal Navy, this is known as the “paying off pennant” because a ship used to be taken out of commission and its crew “paid off” at the end of each cruise. In the United States Navy, it is called the homeward-bound pennant. Although not officially sanctioned by regulations, the Navy has issued guidelines for the use of this pennant in NTP-13(B), Flags, Pennants and Customs.
It is really very simple. Just click here to register and then submit your contact information in the required fields and list your trips with full details about your travels –including the number of miles covered.
In return, not only will your accomplishments be listed for all who visit this website to be impressed by, you will receive a complimentary Nordhavn Distance Pennant. Let the world know your Nordhavn is more than just a great-looking vessel. You and your Nordhavn have done what others dare not.
The first level is 2,500 miles. Subsequent pennants will be issued in additional 5,000 nm increments. Each will be a different color. No matter how the miles were accrued: one long trip, 50 short cruises or even if you have owned multiple Nordhavns, it’s the total miles accumulated that we are interested in.

adding to previously submitted
seattle to kodiak and the alaska peninsula, adding 3800 mi for total of 15,000. previously rec'd the 10,000 mi. with about 1500 left over . In 2010
Now we have a new SAMBA, N5266. She has done 3000 miles as of today, just leaving Alaska after 4 months poking around. Always looking for new coves and anchorages, now up to 400 different anchorages from Seattle to the Alaska Peninsula. Still a lifetime of exploration awaits. New SAMBA handles beautifully and is remarkeably fuel efficient.
may,2014. From Alaska down to southern BC last fall, then up to Prince William Sound. This year went into Lituya Bay and Icy Bay on the way up. Spectacular scenery in both. Lituya Bay and the thought provoking entrance looking at the effect of a 1700 foot tidal wave! and 12,000 foot Mt Lituya and 3 glaciers in front. Icy Bay with 18000 foot Mt St Elias looming directly over the bay. Onwards toward Kodiak and the Peninsula.
Looks like a number of previous posts are not here, so we'll catch up.
17,000 miles in Samba N40 (2005). Now Samba N52 (2012).
We have cruised Alaska extensively going out past Dutch Harbor since bringing Samba to Kodiak. We have spent 5 years there in the 52 and developed our educational charter business teaching prospective Nordhavn owners seamanship, boat systems and safety. A good number of our clients are now Nordhavn owners and are enjoying their own adventures from the Caribbean to Australia!
This last year we brought Samba from Kodiak down to Anacortes for haulout and stabilizer work, then moved her to Brentwood Bay in Canada for the winter.
We now have travelled 35,000 miles in our Nordhavns.
