‘Sol & Sons’ is the only European specified Nordhavn 86 available on the Brokerage market. She is a beautiful example of what was until recently (our 120 took the crown) our flagship trawler. She has cruised the eastern Mediterranean since new and has had a full time crew looking after her since then too. The stats and specs only hint at this marvellous yacht’s capabilities. World travel is obviously a given with a Nordhavn of any size, but Sol & Sons offers such adventures in huge luxury. Her displacement hull offers the volume that belies her length so she has a feel of a much larger vessel. The first impressions from the outside are of great mass and powerful lines, but it’s the interior volume that has to be experienced to be appreciated.
She was built to ABS with +A1 Yachting Service rating for the Hull and AMS rating for machinery and installation. She carries $20,000 of spares and is ready for whatever you dreams, hopes and plans can conjure.

Sol & Sons is fitted out in beautiful teak with a 60% satin finish. This is classic Nordhavn build which is timeless, easy to maintain, hard wearing with an elegance most builders find hard to achieve. She is a boat that cossets yet maintains a practical and fit for purpose air about her.
Step aboard by means of her Besenzoni passerelle, and you enter the lower cockpit area with fixed seating and a beautiful high gloss teak table. Perfect for outside entertaining with guests and family. The cockpit and lower side decks have half inch teak covering them. There is a curved stairwell leading up to the pilothouse deck which gives a shady outside deck again with teak being a lovely feature. There is a BBQ on the lower deck in a fibreglass housing. For docking and line handling there are windlasses and clests port and starboard as well as a steering station with thruster and engine controls housed on the starboard side of the fixed seating.

This features an athwartship queen size double with ample storage and hanging lockers.

Entered through a door on the starboard side across form the stairwell there is a corridor with the master heads with large shower and twin sinks before the cabin opens up to the full width of the pilothouse. There is ample stowage and hanging lockers and the double bed faces astern and enjoys an envious view out through the double opening door which lead out to the enclosed pilothouse level cockpit area.

There is a large communal area for crew to relax, cook and enjoy off watch and means that privacy is easy for owner and their guests as well as the crew themselves. There is a small galley with sink, microwave and stowage as well as seating area and table. On the forward bulkhead there is a watertight door leading to the
Enviable access to all machinery is the norm on our boat designs and Sol & Sons shows this at its highest level both main engines and the two Gen sets can easily be reached to check and maintain. Sound proofing and anti-vibration is a major consideration on such a vessel and this is done to the highest level achievable. The very best equipment is used (see specs) and Sol & Sons has had a full time engineer aboard keeping everything running to perfection. As mentioned she carries $20k of spares, tidally stored in the engine room and
Which again is accessed from the crew quarters, although there are two large access hatches to the lazarette in the cockpit floor. The steering gear, batteries, Atlas electrical system are all located in the lazarette as well as stowage for dive compressors and other equipment.
Coming out of the crew quarters and back outside we have some great outside space. The cockpit we have mentioned but take the starboard side deck and go up the stairwell, this leads you up onto the forward deck where we have stowed a Nautica 20ft tender with a 110hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboard. This is launched using the Marquip Hydraulic crane which can lift up to 3500Lbs or nearly 1600kg. There is room for jet skis or another tender in this deck too. The aft pilothouse design allows ‘The toys’ to be launched and recovered without inconveniencing guest using the cockpit areas. There is a large door in the Portuguese bridge with allows access onto the pilothouse level. There are steering stations and controls on each wing of the Portuguese bridge and moving down either side deck you make your way down to the mid-level cockpit, or perhaps we could call it the owner’s cockpit with access back into the Master cabin. We can enter the pilothouse again through the port and stbd stable doors and then head for the flybridge via the internal staircase to port.
