We are excited to be showing the Nordhavn 41 and the Nordhavn 76 Spirit of Ulysses at the Palm Beach Show this week! Please note the following conditions required to inspect these boats:
The Nordhavn 41 will be on the main dock at Ramp 2. No appointment is necessary but please expect a wait as we anticipate a lot of people looking to climb aboard our popular pocket ocean-crosser.
The Nordhavn 76 Spirit of Ulysses is going to be featured at the Superyacht Pavilion at Rybovich Marina, 4200 N Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach, FL, about a 10 minute drive north of the main Palm Beach Boat Show. Appointments are required to see this boat.
Please inquire with James Leishman, firstname.lastname@example.org (949-310-3660) and Garrett Severen, email@example.com (949-636-5057) to arrange an appointment or email your Nordhavn broker for assistance.
Excitement over Nordhavn’s newest upper mid-size luxury yacht is building and construction of hull #1 is making great strides. This week factory workers completed gelcoat spraying and are focused on the deck mold. Meticulous work can be found in these photos as well as video taken recently at the Ta Shing Yard in Taiwan. Commitments on the first four hulls have been made, including at least two by current owners who are moving up in size to the N71. “This model is going to be the ultimate combination of modern, forward-thinking design and the most proven elements of past and current Nordhavns,” said project manager Justin Zumwalt. “Watching it all come together is very exciting.”
This morning Red Rover left Bahia del Sol, El Salvador. The marina is in an estuary and there is a bar crossing to get in and out. A pilot boat leads the way, with the company of an amazing gentleman, Bill. Bill is a local expat, former cruiser and self-described Campground Host. He and his wife Jean are amazing. Bill is a steady and reassuring voice on the VHF, providing directions as you work your way in and out.
This morning the bar was pretty calm and while there were waves breaking off to our port and starboard, it was fine in front of us in the channel. Suddenly the panga pilot boat veered hard to port and Bill’s voice told us to “just hold” for these waves. And so we did! In waves breaking on our bow.
I have been doing a silly little experiment. A few weeks ago, a roll of paper towels ended up above the teak surround around our master stateroom tv. I have been waiting to see what makes it fall. Not even this. This boat is so incredibly stable. And quite still in the center of the boat.
All is well in the Good Ship Red Rover and another pot of coffee is brewing.
