“Rare opportunity”…the phrase seems a bit overused these days. With global economies in recovery and companies rolling out “unbelievable offers”, so how is our announcement for this rare opportunity to purchase a new Nordhavn 47 any different? Well for one, this 47 was the result of a unique time in PAE history when 10 orders suddenly fell through but were quickly snapped up by fellow Nordhavn enthusiasts who recognized a great opportunity and 47#58 is the last of those boats. However there are other elements here which come together to make hull #58 a very special one:
Price: The facts are that this is a time when opportunities are readily available and in that regard, Nordhavn 47#58 may not seem all that rare. However, when you consider in all the extras that this boat has, you’ll quickly realize the major savings to be had through this offer. Just some of the top equipment found in hull #58 are:
- TRAC stabilizers
- Air conditioning
- An external steering station from the flybridge with an extra Todd helm chair to share those sunny days at sea.
- 12kW Northern Lights generator
- Wing engine
- The latest Furuno electronics including AIS and autopilot
Without doubt her price at $1,100,000 (ex tax) represents great value.
Delivery time: If you were to order a brand new Nordhavn 47 today, she would be shipped from the factory some time in October. Add on to that transportation and approximately two months in commissioning and your delivery would be possibly encroaching into 2011. However if you were to purchase the brand new Nordhavn 47#58 today, your delivery would be…today(give or take a few days for paperwork, seatrials and training) allowing you to start your adventures and realize your dreams immediately.
European power-equipped: Here’s where the offer really sets itself apart. Hull #58 is equipped with a 230v/50Hz system allowing you to visit more places around the world such as Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Scandinavia and Europe, South Africa and islands in the Indian Ocean with minimal hassle. It’s ideal for the European who wants to travel his or her native waters or the American who doesn’t want to worry about dealing with adapters while exploring overseas.
Aside from what’s described above making this a rare opportunity, the Nordhavn 47 is simply a terrific boat in its own right. The most popular of our mid-size models, the N47 is the quintessential passagemaker and versatile enough for a family who wants to do extended cruising in serious comfort or the couple who wants to explore the world and entertain guests all at once. Hull number 58 can suit an owner’s many requirements; even if you are looking to work (occasionally, we hope) from your Nordhavn, the separate office area can be suitably fitted out with all the current technology to keep you in contact with the outside world.
All this and you get the pedigree of a Nordhavn, the most proven, safest long-range cruiser in the world.
