Shanagolden – Nordhavn 40 (2006)





Categories: , Tag:


Here is a magnificent example of a low-hour Nordhavn N40 with flybridge. She is hull # 54 in the series. Her current owners have continued to maintain her in pristine condition. Their travels have taken them up and down the East Coast as far south as Palm Beach, FL. For the most part, they have enjoyed staying in the Boston area. The owners really enjoy just getting out on the water, heading to a marina with a good restaurant nearby, all the while enjoying the comforts and amenities provided by Shanagolden. Their travels are further enhanced by knowing that the N40 has the capability of handling almost any situation mother nature may happen to send their way. Please see the small portion of records and pictures in this listing. If you are serious about a Nordhavn N40, don’t hesitate. This is the boat for you!
