NEW TO THE MARKET !
5705 has been cruised throughout the Caribbean and South America for the last 12 years. The current owners named her “White Raven”, a reference to a Haida legend about a mythical bird who brought light to the world.
Current owners are very experienced boaters (45 plus years) who have spent much of the past year refitting and updating her. Pumps and hoses have been replaced. Heads have been rebuilt, engine coolant systems flushed and the galley has been renovated with a new LPG 4-burner stove and GE microwave/convection oven. Recent changes in owner’s health and plans have resulted in their decision to sell.
White Raven is easy to see here in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
Only minutes from the Palm Beach International Boat Show March 28th-31st, 2019

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Nordhavn 57 is a full-displacement passagemaker with all the necessary features of an ocean crosser. The construction is to the same heavy scantlings as her sister ships, but the design differs in styling and interior volume. The 57 maintains a rugged, commercial look while interfacing a contemporary elegance, and offers a level of performance that expands the envelope of top cruising speed and long range potential. The hull and its bulbous bow have been fine-tuned at the Engineering Facility at the University of British Columbia. Maintenance Strakes have been developed which maintain a moderate draft, and freeboard and superstructure height. The maintenance strakes not only provide added engine room height but enhance the vessel’s performance by up to 2 percent depending on the speed selected. Working in conjunction with the bulbous bow, the strakes have a positive effect on the wave-making characteristics and reduce resistance. A combination of a parabolic-shaped bulb, fuller sections aft, and a stern designed to minimize drag-inducing suction at high cruising speeds, allows this vessel to run efficiently at speed – length ratios of 1.6, or approximately 11.5 knots. There is a minimal efficiency penalty at lower ‘ocean crossing’ speeds, but this does not affect capability due to the vessel’s substantial fuel capacity. The 57 offers cruising speeds above what is normally possible in a full-displacement hull while maintaining the benefits of this hull form, such as ocean crossing capability, reduced noise and vibration levels, heavy construction scantlings, and greater safety – comfort. For semi-planing hulls to achieve planing speeds, weight must be minimized which adversely effects seaworthiness and long-range capability. Additionally, the seakeeping qualities of the higher-speed models are compromised due to their light displacement – length ratios, small rudders, and shallow keels. The 57 features an interior volume – overall length ratio higher than previous Nordhavn designs. This increase in space is due to a greater beam – length ratio, increased volume in hull sections, and the beam carried farther aft. Additional innovations include a walk-in engine room with dual work benches, a deep lazarette with shelves, a large cockpit, a swim platform with access door, a large flybridge, and fiberglass fuel and water tanks.
She has a full walk around. There is a day head just forward of the Salon. This saves the 30 steps required to use one of the heads going from the salon to the sleeping cabin area and back. There is a counter to ceiling pantry on the inboard end of the galley counter. Access from the cockpit to the boat deck has a custom hatch… which keeps entryway dry when raining.
There are five control stations; pilot house, fly bridge, cockpit, and either side of the Portuguese bridge. Engine controls as well as both bow and stern thrusters can be operated from any of these stations. Thrusters are hydraulic, powered by a pump on the wing engine.
Boat is powered by a single 325 hp Lugger diesel with a 70 hp Lugger wing engine and has two Northern Lights generators, an 8 kw and a 16 kw, she is prepared and equipped to go in comfort and safety, anywhere her owners desire.
When entering the salon from the aft deck you will encounter craftmanship only Nordhavn can deliver. Beautiful teak cabinet and wall coverings abound. The sole throught is Teak & Holly. The overhead is a light vinyl with grab rails overhead for security. Huge windows all around provide abundant natural light. Accordion window blinds allow privacy or shade. The salon immediately to port has a L shaped settee with storage below. Forward of that are cabinets, drawers, and a BlueRay DVD Player. There is also a high-low coffee table that expands along with a recliner to port. Across to starboard are two barrel chairs, ratan table, and a Sony 32″ Flatscreen TV.
Forward of the salon to starboard is the enclosed day head with sink, mirror, cabinets, and Vac-U-Flush head. Foraward of that is a companion way door which leads to the side deck or down to the engine room.
Forward of the salon to port is the U-shaped galley. Some highlights include double S/S sink, full size refrigerator/Freezer, Corian countertops, NEW convection microwave, NEW Force Ten four burner cooktop, and abundant cabinets & drawers. Overhead lights and a large S/S porthole provide pleasing light. The sole is Teak & Holly with an area removable rug.
From the galley moving forward five steps up brings you to the cozy pilothouse. From the captains central helm chair he or she can reach all critical mechanical and electrical systems. A full array of electronics aids make voyaging a pleasure. The aft bench seat is a great place for a light bite or spending time on the laptop while still being able to see the voyage ahead. Port & starboard wing doors give quick access to the side decks from the lower helm.
From the starboard side of the pilothouse ten steps down brings you to the forward companion way which leads you to the master stateroom, VIP stateroom, and guest quarters.
The master stateroom is located midship. It is a full beam master with a walk around Island Queen berth. Numerous teak cabinets, hanging lockers and drawers provide tremendous storage for extended cruising. The Teak & Holly sole is covered with a salt and pepper burbur carpet. The light vinyl overhead reflects plenty of light from the two large portholes on the portside. The enclosed head to starboard features a Vac-U-Flush head, Corian counters, numerous cabinets and drawers along with a mirror vanity. The enclosed shower stall has a porthole, storage, and a seating area.
The second guest stateroom is to port with over under single berths. This stateroom includes several cabinets and drawers, porthole, large hanging locker, reading lights, and mirror.
All the way forward is the VIP stateroom with Island Queen berth. Some appointments include large deck hatch, teak cabinets & drawers, large hanging locker, and a bifold door to the shared guest head.
The guest head has a Vac-U-Flush system, enclosed shower, Corian countertops, medicine cabinet and Teak & Holly sole.

Great Lugger Information 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.
