With a 24-foot beam, Nordhavn 76 is more than impressive at first sight, however her full load displacement of over 400,000 pounds allows her to compare with many vessels well over 100 feet.
Building on the experience of hundreds of thousands of ocean crossing miles and applying the “form follows function” rule, this ultimate offshore passagemaker has been designed in an aft wheelhouse configuration. For comfort and visibility at sea, this arrangement cannot be beat and with her long foredeck, tenders up to 20 feet can be accommodated.
There is no question the Nordhavn 86 is a large yacht. 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. Taking advantage of the enormous capacity of this hull, the Nordhavn 86 offers accommodations that are nothing short of remarkable. The saloon and galley measures 36 feet in length, the master cabin and head are full width consuming the whole forward/upper section of the vessel and the combination of wheelhouse, captain’s cabin and sky lounge measure almost 30 feet in length. In addition to the master stateroom and captain’s cabin, the vessel includes three guest staterooms with ensuite heads and an additional crew cabin and head aft with an interior and exterior entrance. A laundry and utility room are also provided. The luxurious and functional interior is finished with fine hardwoods, beautiful moldings and raised panels combined with stone floors, granite countertops, the finest hardware, lighting and fixtures.
The Nordhavn 86 is designed for customization, and most owners elect to engage professional interior designers. Some suggest alterations to layout, but all use furnishings, textures and colors to imprint owners’ personalities and tastes. Thus, each of the yachts launched to date is, effectively, unique. Finishing choices also result in interiors with remarkably different appearances and “feel”.
