The 46 revolutionized oceangoing thanks to its landmark design, pleasing lines and proportion and superior functionality. Its overall design and style broke the rules of the day, which was a remarkable milestone for the designers and founders of Pacific Asian Enterprises, P.A.E whose driving passion birthed Nordhavn 46 – frustrating tradition and all popular trends of the marine industry. The 46 courted power boaters’ attention and attracted an ardent following of sailors.

Scores of power boaters and sailors who shared a common desire to travel the oceans of the world at the time were looking for an ideal marine vessel; one that could make their voyage smooth and comfortable. And the 46 couldn’t have been a finer yacht. Since many had read Robert Beebe’s “Voyaging under Power” (the passage-making bible), they were certain the 46 was their ‘passage maker’ and could help them live their long-distance voyaging dreams.

Others were looking for a change away from the conventional sailboats that heavily relied on good weather and fair wind. Folks at the P.A.E saw an opportunity and crafted the Nordhavn 46 that got seasoned cruisers euphoric at the same time enthusiastic. The response went beyond what the P.A.E team had expected. The 46 attracted a cult-like following and what started as a simple idea grew into a worldwide family of boat lovers who now relish voyaging under power.

From the very beginning, the 46 design stuck out like a sore thumb and gave the word unique a whole new meaning making all the other “trawler yachts” seem small in stature. That’s because the 46 had nothing to compare with. Its luxurious accommodations, economical operation, and offshore abilities were unique (and new). The 46 was simply beyond compare. Even with over ten years of production, the 46 has remained prominent and stood ground as a modern classic.
