N68, however, has better space planning and gives that modern feel, which makes her to perfectly fill the size gap between aft pilothouse N63 and the larger N76. PAE President Dan Streech says that N68 perfectly fits among the N62, N63 and N76 for those with great affection for aft pilothouse.  Looking for Nordhavn 68 for sale yacht opportunities?

Although N62 distinct styling has been Nordhavn hallmark for almost twenty years, N68 brings out the core by incorporating the latest design, technology and systems into a stronger and beamier hull. The teak joiner work in the interior of N68 is intricately made, and its spectacular style and class is modern. One of the biggest advantages of this vessel is that it can easily be managed by a cruising couple without the need of a captain and crew despite its size.

The massive size of the boat which is of a width 21 feet can be felt as soon as you step onto the boat. This yacht can host larger groups of people due to its spacious room on the inside, which created by the beam of N68 being further aft and the freeboard forward being higher. The asymmetrical and dual walk-around layout in the huge saloon ensures that its occupants are as comfortable as possible. The granite countertops accompanied by stainless steel appliances make cooking for the many guests aboard the yacht a walk in the park, which is made easier by the large gourmet galley.

N68 being an aft pilothouse model, the deck hatches leave the foredeck open to allow for ventilation and good circulation of air and lots of the much-needed light. While in the Master Suite and its luxurious head and shower forward, the light is fully appreciated as full-size port lights on each side displays breathtaking views.

Screech, says that the boat is so feature packed that there is not a regular option sheet for it.

Aft Pilothouse Non-Flybridge

Even if N68 is commercial aft pilothouse grandeur, the real water enthusiasts feel like the salty look of the yacht is detracted by the design’s flybridge. An N63 can be replicated by opting to remove flybridge, which on the other hand, leads to a larger boat. PAE President, Streech notes that for those who want an Aft Pilothouse Nordhavn 68 with dramatic and more wonderful results, then NFB model is the simple variant. Those who cruise the high latitudes desire to have the saltiest ideal yachties. This is achieved by tweaking the aft pilothouse by shortening the stack, which produces a less windage upshot, less weight, a gorgeous battleship profile and of, course, a better stability.

Forward Pilothouse

The forward pilothouse version retains the same interior layout as N64 but it is build on the same extended hull as the aft pilothouse Nordhavn 68 and adds four feet (1.2metres) of length to the aft cockpit hence increasing the outdoor living and playing space to 17.7 square meters or 191 square feet. The larger lazerette is also appreciated. One of the advantages of N68 is that forward pilothouse enjoys a slight cruising efficiency more than Nordhavn 64 due to its longer waterline.

The placement of the owner’s cabin gives a central difference in the forward versus aft pilothouse layout. VIP stateroom is located closer to the middle of the boat in the FHP arrangement. This way, motion is less noticeable hence more comfortable at sea and at the anchor. It is also true that the cabin has a larger space due to its location in the wider part of the boat.
