Unbelievably, and directly from the companies reputation, twenty-two N47s were ordered sight-unseen in the haydays of the noughties. She is one of the most successful yachts ever launched by Nordhavn and she took the pride of place in the sub-50 foot off-shore, blue-water ocean crossers, where the N46 left off.
“Nordhavns have been setting records since the very first N46 was launched in 1989. Indeed, more Nordhavns have made successful ocean passages and global circumnavigations than all other production powerboats combined.
In 2002, a Nordhavn 40 completed a 26,000-mile circumnavigation in less than 26 weeks without a single breakdown or mishap.
The new Nordhavn 47 has continued this record-setting heritage even before hull number one was launched.”
