About this Norhavn 50′

DOWN TIME is a superbly appointed example of the renowned Nordhavn 50. The N50 is legendary for it’s sea keeping ability with it’s incredibly stable low profile and bulbous bow. She was personally commissioned by the well respected Nordhavn mechanic James Knight during his time at Nordhavn corporate in Stuart Florida. Down Time is one of the latest, and arguably finest examples of the venerable Nordhavn 50′s extant. The original owner sold the boat to the current owner “as new” shortly after taking delivery from PAE in 2004. The current owner has used her regularly and just enough to keep systems in top shape while not running up her hours, while sparing no expense in pampering her.

The first and current owners have given a blank check to James Knight and his crew at the renowned Nordhavn specialist firm Yacht Tech for virtually all maintenance and upgrades…even to the extent of flying a top Yacht Tech service technician to Central America for a week for last seasons haul out. Continuity and quality of service such a Downtime has experienced adds great value to a yacht which, to the purchasers benefit, her asking price does not reflect. This yacht represents an exceptional value for a savvy yachtsman.

Down Time, (Hull #26) is in extremely good condition and has just returned home with a flawless passage from Port Antonio, Jamaica. She is a true luxury yacht the Admiral will love…while just a few weeks ago she navigated the notoriously treacherous Windward passage between Haiti and Cuba with aplomb before slipping into the Gulf Stream and making incredible time all the way back to Palm Beach. Truly the best of both worlds. The Yacht Tech crew are busy working on fresh bottom paint and thorough inspections prior to passing the baton over to her new owner and adventurer!
