Brief Summary

This venerable cruiser has so many qualities that make it an ideal companion for long trips that it may very well change the way you think about distance cruising. Not only is the Nordhavn 47 a comfortable coastal cruiser, but her intended mission is really ocean passages. The 47 is an development of the company’s very firsty boat, the Nordhavn 46, fist built in 1989. There are now dozens of boats that are designed for exactly this same mission (even the Italians are getting into the act), so while Nordhavn once shared this market with only a couple of other builders, now there are many – and many good choices.
