Product Description

About this Norhavn 68′

  • Year: 2008
  • Current Price: US$ 3,450,000 Tax Paid
  • Located in Palm Beach, FL
  • Hull Material: Fiberglass
  • Engine/Fuel Type: Twin diesel
  • YW# 78861-2591403

The 68 bridges the gap between the look and feel of the Nordhavn 62 and its bigger sister, the Nordhavn 76.
“There are those who have great affection for the aft pilothouse boat and the 68 fits perfect among the 62, new 63 and 76,” says PAE President Dan Streech.

Nordhavn 68 Forward Pilothouse
The distinct styling of the 62 has been a Nordhavn hallmark for nearly twenty years, and the 68 captures the essence of this vessel yet it incorporates the latest thinking in design, systems and technology and packages it all into a beamier, heartier hull. The interior is stunning with modern styling and beautiful teak joiner work. And despite the size advantage, this vessel is just as easily managed by a cruising couple without need for captain and crew.
Stepping onto the boat, the massive size of the 21-foot wide expanse can be immediately felt. The 68 carries its beam further aft and has a higher freeboard forward, thus providing more room on the inside. Offered in both an asymmetrical and dual walk-around layout, the huge saloon is an ideal gathering area for when the yacht plays host to larger groups.
Meanwhile, cooking for the masses is a snap in the large gourmet galley with such features as granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Because the 68 is an aft pilothouse model, the foredeck is open so there are deck hatches for lots of light and ventilation. This is especially noticeable in the full-beam Master Suite and its luxurious head and shower forward. There are full size port lights positioned on either side which show off breathtaking views. Located just two steps down and forward from the saloon/galley area, the bright and airy cabin offers its owners a pleasant haven for an afternoon nap or good night’s sleep.
Guests are treated to two luxurious staterooms located down a staircase just off the galley/saloon. Two heads – one ensuite – are swathed in granite and the finest fixtures. Situated just across the hall from the staterooms is the roomy, state-of-the-art engine room with its 6’2″ ceiling. Purring along is the a state of the art 425 hp single John Deere 6135AFM75 marine engine that drives forward the 205,000 lb. boat at a cruising speed of 9.5 kts.
Like the larger luxurious vessels in the Nordhavn fleet – the 72, 75EYF, 76, 78 and 86 – the Nordhavn 68 is filled with the best equipment as standard including hydraulic bow and stern thrusters, ABT stabilizers, air conditioning, and Stidd helm chairs. “This boat is so feature-packed there is not a regular option sheet for it,” says Streech.
