With popularity of the “northwest trawler”-style boat on the rise, one of the most eagerly awaited yachts at London On-Water 2017, will be the sensational new Nordhavn 76.

With popularity of the “northwest trawler”-style boat on the rise, one of the most eagerly awaited yachts at London On-Water 2017, will be the sensational new Nordhavn 76.

With an unrivalled reputation for strong, sea-worthy boats and yachts, Nordhavn set out to create a new, big modern passage-maker that fused this salty look with the advanced systems of the latest Nordhavns. The result was the Nordhavn 76: developed for those yachtsmen who want an aft pilothouse boat which carries its shore boats on the foredeck. 

Like the venerable Nordhavn 62, the pilothouse of the N76 is set aft, carries its crane forward and can launch its shore boats off either the port or starboard side. Based on the hull form and specifications of the N72, the simple goal of this new model was to create a small superyacht which was true to the rugged ocean going heritage of other Nordhavns while at the same time stunning in her elegance, fit and finish, systems and engineering.

The boat was taken from drawing board to factory seamlessly through the efforts of Naval Architect Jeff Leishman, along with the design and engineering team at PAE, and the Taiwanese builders at Nordhavn’s partner factory, Ta Shing. 

Nearly a year was spent in the tooling and mould-building phase of this project to create the hundreds of highly polished moulds required to construct this complex boat in gleaming gel coat finished GRP (fibreglass) construction.

For the Nordhavn 76, an interior decorator was commissioned to up the degree of style most superyachts are known for, including crown mouldings, granite, leather, well-engineered lighting, and the finest appliances. Though a little more glitzy, there’s no denying that a Nordhavn exists at the heart of this boat. Numerous handrails, half-inch tempered glass windows, watertight doors and bulkheads and many other features essential for safe operation offshore.

Like the 72, the fact that this boat is so complete, a regular options list does not exist. Standard on the Nordhavn 76 is chilled water air conditioning, TRAC stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, Marquipt davit, wing engine, dry exhaust, windlass and ground tackle, and a lot more. Simply add your electronics package, tenders on deck, personal affects you’re ready to go.

The highly developed standard AC and DC electrical systems on the N76 achieve a new level of sophistication for Nordhavn and allow for semi-automatic operation of this feature-packed vessel by a small crew or even one couple.

The standard propulsion configuration of the N76 is classic Nordhavn. The single main engine is the highly respected John Deere 6135AFM in the 500 hp configuration and with its 20,000-hour life expectancy, should outlast most of us. Dry exhaust and keel cooling are standard as is the Lugger wing engine.
The N76 is also available in a twin-engine configuration. 

Through clever design and forethought during the tooling phase of the project, keel moulds for the twin engine layout were built and can be inserted into the main hull mould prior to lamination. This feature provides twin keels and protection for the shafts and propellers of the twin screw layout.

Another choice that the buyer of an N76 is given, is whether or not to have a bulbous bow or conventional bow. The N76 hull mould has two different bow configurations (conventional and bulbous) which are interchangeable and set up prior to hull lamination. The bulbous bow provides benefits but also has an unpleasant side to it and thus has become somewhat controversial in recent years. We will discuss with you your intended use of your Nordhavn 76 and help you decide which bow configuration is right for you.

Unlike other semi-custom yachts out there, buying a Nordhavn 76 need not be stressful or risky. The N76 is fundamentally a fibreglass production boat built in moulds on an established production schedule by a highly competent team, which has been together for 30 years. Systems, engineering and performance are solid, well-developed and proven. You can inspect existing N76s to witness how special the fit and finish of this boat really is. Climb on board and get a feel for how comfortable it is to operate, and on a sea trial, experience the smoothness, low noise levels, sea kindliness and comfort.

Within the “production boat” safety net, you can still customise your Nordhavn with décor, equipment and features to achieve your desires. No two N76s will be alike, but all will share the same quality, seaworthiness, factory support and excellent resale value.

Represented in the UK by Nordhavn Europe, the Nordhavn 76 is a stunning explorer yacht capable of crossing any ocean and reach any part of the globe, the Nordhavn 76 has exceeded everyone’s expectations, and is eagerly awaited at London On-Water 2017!
