This Model Is No Longer In Production
For years, P.A.E. has demonstrated the virtues of full displacement passagemakers. It first delighted the powerboat market with the introduction of its Nordhavn 46, a moderately sized, full displacement motoryacht. Capable of crossing any ocean, over 75 of these popular cruisers have been built to date. During the development of its Nordhavn 62, a ship-like vessel designed for those with even more ambitious cruising plans, P.A.E. continued its evolutionary work on the modern day, long range cruiser.
While many bluewater purists have become enamored by the unique, commercial-looking appearance of both the 46 and 62, P.A.E. recognized a demand for a more contemporary styled yacht. The Nordhavn 57 was born, creating a state-of-the-art passagemaker with lines that will grace the world’s finest marinas and yacht clubs. With a range of over 3,000 nautical miles, the 57 is designed to take her owner and crew wherever they desire in style. Beautifully handcrafted by the world’s finest shipwrights, her modern, contemporary look provides spacious, luxurious accommodations, yet she maintains a sense of serious determination that will endear her to the most salty traditionalist.
Thanks to extraordinary attention to hull design and a commitment to extensive tank testing, the Nordhavn 57 has exceeded P.A.E.’s expectations for speed and efficiency. A close look at its wide range of cruising speeds, coupled with its efficient fuel burning rate, will clearly demonstrate that this boat is the embodiment of today’s modern, long distance cruiser.
