Welcome to the Nordhavn Family

Oliver,

That's a beautiful 47. Ted has a great reputation among Nordhavn owners, he sold a friend of ours his 50 several years ago. What was her name before you bought her? We met Nexus's original owners in the Exumas when they still had their Sunseeker, which tells you how long ago that was The 47 is a great boat, you will enjoy it.

We have some friends in Australia who just purchased an '04 47, they are cruising in New Zealand right now. I am happy to introduce you if you like, you guys are at about the same stage of learning the boat.

Feel free to contact us anytime, we are reachable here or on our website at Blog: MVDuet.talkspot.com The Adventures.... We enjoy talking about the boats.

Best
Nancy

She's out of the water after waiting 5 weeks, The guys at Stuart Yacht are doing and excellent job getting her buffed and waxed. All the shine is just from the buff and compound not even waxed and is shining like a beauty!!!

I'm inclined to agree. But Oliver I have a question, it's one which always springs to mind when I see a lovely raised pilothouse design. Does the layout and the nice raised helm not basically make the flybridge redundant, or do you use it much at all..?

Have we gone upmarket?

I think just two, but they are justifiably excited about their new boats and sharing/asking a lot. The great thing about boats and boating is that 90% of it transcends brand.

Well we'll be doing an butt load of Bahamas cruising, and from the flybridge it's really easy see the water (depth sounding ). Also as you know florida is very hot so on an nice breezy day it's quite enjoyable to be on the flybridge. When stuff gets stormy we just herd on down to the pilot house.

Yeah, at one time owning a 40 was a dream. But then things happen in life, opportunities come up that are once in a lifetime.
