Is this a good-looking Nordhavn or what?

The first Nordhavn 56 Motorsailer has arrived in Dana Point, California, home of Pacific Asian Enterprises, and the first photos show one good-looking yacht!

Your faithful magazine crew cannot wait to sea-trial the newest Nordhavn for a feature report in the next Circumnavigator.

Click on the images for a larger view. More photos, including shots of the interior, are posted at the Nordhavn site.

Interestingly, the purchaser of Hull #1 has no sailing experience. His background is in go-fast powerboats, but he figures motorsailing will be the most cost-effective way to cruise the South Pacific. More, in the next edition of Circumnavigator that will roll off the press in September 2009.
