(SOLD) Aquaholic – Nordhavn 57 (2000)



Categories: , , Tag:


New listing, Additional photos and specs to follow.

Low profile, center of gravity and bulbous bow is what makes the 57 one of the best handling Nordhavn’s ever made. Her seaworthiness, three stateroom layout and 3000 NM cruising range makes Aquaholic the perfect family vessel but is also capable reaching all points of the globe or even a short hop to the islands. Aquaholic is a very well equipped long range vessel. She will not last long at current asking price. Make an appointment to preview Aquaholic.

Just minutes from Fort Lauderdale International.

Engine Hour Notes from Bob Senter

Don’t confuse Nordhavn’s with the average white boat you see for sale. None of the same rules apply. Continuous duty rated engines, for example, are only used on commercial vessels and Nordhavn’s.

That means that they could have an expected life of somewhere between 20,000 and 40,000 hours and are designed to be overhauled to new in the hull economically. Virtually, all the components you find in a Nordhavn were the best of the breed at the time the boat was built.

The most difficult thing for most buyers to understand is that when you find a high hour boat, it must have been continuously maintained in order to remain in top quality , so you’ve found a jewel. A low hour boat can appear cosmetically excellent but hide a multitude of hidden issues, most of which are directly connected to seawater or corrosion eating up expensive stuff you can’t see. But, you will absolutely pay for it after the purchase, usually one frustrating surprise at a time.

You don’t need to worry about high hours on Northern Lights generators or Lugger propulsion engines that get broken in around 5000 hours. I have seen a few engines killed by negligence or seawater intrusion but none that actually wore out in a Nordhavn. The John Deer’s are also good.

Finally, all used boats have some cosmetic opportunities both external and internal but it is part of buying a used boat.
