A founding concept for the Nordhavn line
was to build a cruising yacht capable of safely
and comfortably going around the world.
The Nordhavn 43 exudes confidence for this
mission, although you’ll also enjoy her for
many other types of cruising.
Her heart is a Lugger L1066T diesel
engine with an optional get-home engine.
A serious steadying sail propels the boat
with enough wind from the right direction. Reliability is key with features
such as keel cooling and dry exhaust.
Each of the two 600-gallon molded
fiberglass tanks can drain into a
40-gallon supply reservoir with a
water alarm, allowing water and
heavy contaminants to be collected and drained off before
reaching the main filters.
Range is projected to be
3,360 nm at seven knots. A
Portuguese bridge protects
the deck area outside the
wheelhouse. A wide stern
helps her to carry load and
avoid squatting at speed,
and her large prop is protected in an aperture
well above the keel.
The owner’s cabin
is amidships, minimizing discomfort
from pitching. You
won’t find the ballroom spaces of gin
palaces, but you
will find quality and
comfortable long-range living aboard.
Base price $695,000.
