Growing 40,00 pounds of weight over the N68, this small “super-yacht” weighs in at a quarter of a million pounds with twin or single engine configurations, as well as front or rear pilot-house superstructures. She is well balanced with over 7 feet under the waterline. Huge fuel tanks means real circumnavigation and thorough independence.
For years, we at P.A.E. had fielded requests from Nordhavn enthusiasts – as well as existing Nordhavn owners – who wanted us to build something larger than our venerable 62. After studying the market and realizing that the need for a bigger Nordhavn did exist, we developed the Nordhavn 72.
The simple goal of this new model was not merely to extend the length of our then flagship, but rather to create a small super yacht: true to the rugged ocean going heritage of other Nordhavns while at once stunning in her elegance, beauty, fit and finish, systems and engineering.
