Southern Comfort – Nordhavn 40



Categories: , Tag:


Here is a magnificent example of a low-hour Nordhavn N40 with flybridge. She is hull # 54 in the series. Her original current owners have maintained Southern Comfort in bristol condition.

There travels have taken them up the Chesapeake Bay as far north as Baltimore, MD, and down the ICW as far south as Palm Beach, FL. For the most part, they have enjoyed staying in inland waters, often right there in North Carolina. 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 Southern Comfort. There travels are further enhanced by knowing that the N40 has the capability of handling most any situation mother nature may happen to send there 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 !!
