Nordhavn 56 MotorSailer
Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE), famous for the development of the renowned Nordhavn line of ocean cruisers, has returned to its roots with the Nordhavn 56 MotorSailer. The vessel has the same passagemaking prowess Nordhavn yachts are famous for plus modest offshore sailing capabilities. The aft deck is a trawler style with steering station and sailing cockpit forward of the wheelhouse/salon. Wide starboard and portside decks of the wheelhouse provide access to the sailing cockpit. Handling the sail is manageable with a small crew, thanks to the power winches and powered headsail furlers and main.
The Nordhavn 56 MotorSailer has a fuel capacity of 800 gallons. The stout Lugger 1066 T diesel engine can achieve a top cruising speed of 9 knots. The engine powers a 36-inch Hundested propeller with four-bladed controllable pitch, which offers flexibility of operation that is unsurpassed. To enhance sailing performance, the propeller can be fully feathered, if conditions call for it. A truly amazing level of performance, economy, and comfort is achieved when the sails are providing power and stabilization while the engine maintains a high propeller pitch plus a low rpm.
The captain can enjoy the perfect steering navigation station, with unobstructed 360-degree views in the wheelhouse/saloon, which is surrounded by sturdy half-inch tempered glass windows. Guests can also enjoy the panoramic view, since there is a comfortable wraparound settee to starboard that makes for pleasant dining. There are also two reclining chairs to port, perfect for taking leisure time.
The spacious galley is below and accessed by a stairway. The cabinet storage and countertop space are both abundant, and the galley has superb lighting and ventilation. The full stand-up engine room separates the galley from the lavish master and guest staterooms.
As can be expected in the Nordhavn line, the finest interior styling and equipment are evident in all the details of the Nordhavn 56MS. A few of the numerous high-quality features follow:
- Unmatched plumbing and mechanical systems
- Space for a washer-dryer and storage of spare parts
