Nordhavn’s new entry level passagemaker is in the home stretch of construction, with a ship date just weeks away. This week, focus is on installation of all fixed and built-in furniture. Factory photos taken last week depict the current progress. “We are really happy with the quality we’ve seen,” said Project Manager Drew Leishman who inspected the boat at the Avyalik, Turkey-based shipyard last month. “It’s going to be a great boat.”
The Nordhavn 41 has caused excitement since PAE announced it last year as the replacement for the venerable Nordhavn 40. Buyers responded with eight hulls already committed for purchase. The first boat will be shipped to the U.S. East Coast and is slated to debut at the Newport International Boat Show and U.S. Powerboat Show this fall.
