Pacific Asian Enterprises (PAE) achieved solid entry into the megayacht industry with the Nordhavn 86. There is no denying her impressive appearance, with her 24-foot beam; and yet, she is comparable to many vessels 100 feet and over, with her full load displacement of more than 400,000 pounds. The rule that “form follows function” was applied in the creation of this supreme offshore passagemaker. The arrangement of the yacht ensures visibility and comfort at sea, with an aft wheelhouse configuration and long foredeck that allows accommodation of tenders up to 20 feet.
Accommodations are truly remarkable in the Nordhavn 86, largely due to enormous hull capacity. Features include a galley and saloon measuring 36 feet in length. The entire forward/upper portion of the vessel is consumed by the full-width master stateroom. The combination captain’s cabin, wheelhouse, and sky lounge measures nearly 30 feet in length. The interior is luxurious, functional and spacious. Standard accommodations include:
- Beautiful moldings
- Raised panels
- Fine hardwoods
- Granite countertops
- Hardware of the highest quality
- Well-engineered lighting and fixtures
- Stone floors
Customization is a huge part of the N86 design. Owners typically choose to work with design experts for help with all aspects of interior design, including furnishings, colors and textures that establish an imprint of the owners’ personalities and personal preferences. Finishing options also contribute to the feel and appearance unique to every Nordhavn 86.
Handling of the N86 feels more comparable to a much more diminutive vessel, in spite of her megayacht status. Her twin MTU Series 60 engines are rated at 600 hp, and each spins a 48-inch propeller. Transatlantic cruising can be enjoyed at a speed of 10 knots. Fuel capacity is 7,000 gallons. When traveling in the range of 9 knots, the N86 can run for approximately 4,000 miles before needing to be refueled.
Included in the twin engine configuration are integral skegs and two large attached rudders, which provide maximum directional control. Propellers are protected within their separate apertures. The advanced, electronically injected engines are fitted with commercial rated transmissions with large reduction gears and wet exhaust, delivering a whole new level of dependability and efficiency.
More details about standard machinery and other features follow:
- Hydraulic bilge pumping and anchor wash downs
- 50 hp bow and stern thrusters
- Chilled water air-conditioning system
- A water maker that produces 2,000 gallons daily
- On-deck Jacuzzi
