Total Nordhavn Boats: 570
Total Nordhavn Mileage: 8,102,700
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.
Circumnavigator pennant: any owner who has circumnavigated the world will be awarded a Circumnavigator pennant. Please notify us if you have achieved a circumnavigation.
Extreme Latitudes pennant: anyone who has traveled above 66° North or below 50° South. Please notify us if you qualify for an Extreme Latitudes pennant and include a snapshot of your location

- Marina del Rey to Alaska and back to Marina del Rey Summer 2004
We continue to cruise the east coast of the U.S. From our last posting till now, we cruised the west coast of Florida. That's where we were when the pandemic hit. Hid at York River Yacht Haven for the summer of 2020. In 2021 we went north to New England, turned south in the fall. It is now February 2022 and we are in Florida preparing to cross to the Bahamas.
After the Bahamas we worked our way up the east coast and continued up the Hudson River to Rondout Creek (Kingston N.Y.). Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Returned to Florida for the winter of 2022/2023 and are currently enroute to return to Rondout.
