Sunday Morning – Nordhavn 55



Categories: , Tag:


“Sunday Morning”

Two words……. Absolutely Lovely !

You’ve heard this before from us, but I have to say that Sunday Morning is really a stunning example of the popular Nordhavn 55. She has been truly loved by her present owners, who have decided to move up to a larger Nordhavn. This boat is a low hour, one-of-a-kind beauty. Equipped with the upgraded continuous duty, Lugger 1276 engine that brought her owners safely from Seattle, through the Panama Canal, up and down the Eastern Seaboard until recently arriving here in Palm Beach Gardens. Sunday Morning has been modestly used and continually updated, making her one of the nicest 55’s we’ve listed to date.

She’s equipped with a Dive Compressor for adventuring South to the islands and a factory installed Kabola Diesel Furnace, making her perfect for trips further North or even on those cold winter mornings in South Florida. Even my wife (who seems to dislike boats in general) asked if we could buy her, describing her as tasteful and homey. It’s a miracle !

Make an appointment today to see “Sunday Morning”. You won’t be disappointed!
