Disclaimer and Owner Comments
In 2005, this Nordhavn 76 was involved in a collision with a freighter while off of the West Coast during her initial delivery. As a testament to her solid construction, she continued north for another 1000 miles to the Pacific Northwest, after a brief stop for inspection. The resulting damage was largely cosmetic. Repairs were completed in the Pacific Northwest by a well-respected yard, and invite close scrutiny. As part of the improvements made at that time, her gelcoat finish was entirely painted in Awlgrip at a cost of over $200,000. "Spring Day" has been thoroughly inspected by hull and machinery surveyors and was found to be in superb condition.
We had a 55 Nordhavn for six years, we were very happy with that boat, but our decision to buy a 76 Nordhavn was based on our three year plan to live aboard and cover, at a very leisurely pace, the areas that I will name later. We felt that this extensive plan commanded a boat that would give us ample room for us and guests, and heavy enough to handle the seas. And I can say now that the 76 is not too big and not too small, it really was the perfect size for us. She presented a commanding and masterful presence on the water wherever we went.
First, we spent seven long months commissioning, repairing, updating, hull painting and loving on this boat that had been only intermittently used for several years by her previous owner. Then we departed Vancouver B.C. anxious to experience her performance and visit some of the world. We stopped in Portland Oregon, then to California and joined up with 35 other boats for the FUBAR of 2013.
The next leg was the coast of Mexico, Central America and the Panama Canal. On the Atlantic side, we cruised the San Blas Islands and headed to Florida to start our long awaited desire to explore the East Coast. In fact, we did not stop to the East Coast of the US, but cruised all the way up to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia; that chapter of our cruising was nothing but exciting, splendid and rewarding. We also visited Nassau, and the Exumas in the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the Spanish and US Virgin Islands…to the Bitter End!
We met so many people and have seen so many beautiful places and scenery that we will never forget. The reliability and seaworthiness of our 76 Nordhavn made it even more memorable.
We have no regrets - and that’s how an adventure should end. To start another one in the right frame of mind, and we chose after three years to build a home in Florida and to continue to explore the East Coast by land, well… not exclusively by land since we will be buying a smaller boat to tour the Intercoastal waters this time. The grandkids are growing, so this is yet a new season in our lives, and it is time to let "Spring Day" woo and seduce new owners with her strength and comfort!
