The Nordhavn 72's stylish interior is replete with crown moldings, granite, leather, well-engineered lighting, soffets, the finest appliances, exquisite woodworking and much more. At the same time, the fundamental DNA of Nordhavn is not forgotten. There are numerous handrails, half-inch tempered glass windows, dogged doors, watertight bulkheads and the many other features which are essential for safe operation offshore.
Meanwhile, the standard equipment list for the Nordhavn 72 is so complete that no regular options list is provided. Chilled water air conditioning, TRAC stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, Marquipt davit, wing engine, dry exhaust, windlass and ground tackle, and much more are standard. Add an electronics package, shore boats, and your personal items, and you’re on your way.
The highly developed standard AC and DC electrical systems on the N72 achieve a new level of sophistication for Nordhavn and allow for semi-automatic operation of this feature packed vessel by a small crew or even one couple. The standard propulsion configuration of the N72 is classic Nordhavn. The single main engine is the highly respected John Deere 6135AFM in the 500 hp configuration and with its 25,000 hour life expectancy, should outlast most of us. Dry exhaust and keel cooling are standard as is the Lugger wing engine.
The N72 is also available in a twin engine configuration. Through clever design and forethought during the tooling phase of the project, keel molds for the twin engine layout were built which can be inserted into the main hull mold prior to lamination. This feature provides twin keels and protection for the shafts and propellers of the twin screw layout.
