This line of true, ocean-going passage-makers is offered by Pacific Asian Enterprises in Dana Point, California, which closely supervises the production of the power yachts in Taiwan. Nordhavns are full-displacement motor vessels with exceptional range and seakeeping ability. There are currently 16 boats in the fleet from the Nordhavn 40 to the 120-foot flagship – but every one of them is built stout and tough and designed to punch through heavy head seas and track down swells as if on rails. Nordhavns attract owners with serious cruising plans and those who are extremely comfortable on extended blue water transits. It’s a reputation well supported by Nordhavn’s heritage. In 1989, for instance, the Nordhavn N46 debuted as the first production passage-maker and after selling more than 80 of these groundbreaking hulls, many of them still carry their current owners to all corners of the globe today.
