Nordhavn 62, North Vancouver, BC

Hello Trawler Forum,
This is my first post here, and just wanted to say 'Hi!'
My wife and I have recently purchased a Nordhavn 62, and we'll start distance travelling perhaps Fall, 2013.

Looking forward to listening & learning in anything the forum can provide.
Thank you for the opportunity to be here...

Regards,
Andy

Thanks for the Welcome Swampu.
We are indeed very excited! Had to sell the 'farm' to purchase her, but no regrets. A new life chapter coming up, a dream coming true.

The plan is to tootle round the San Juans & Gulf Islands this spring to get to know the boat and exercise all her systems. Then head up to Alaska in the summer. If all goes well, all systems working, all spares in place and we both feel up-to-it, we'll head South. First stop San Francisco, then San Diego, then Ensenada for fuel. Ultimate destination for 2013 Cabo San Lucas. I'd like to spend a season in the Sea of Cortez. From there? Who knows? We either keep heading South towards Panama or hang a right & motor towards French Polynesia. Either way, it's all good. I'm guessing the decision will come to us naturally though.

Thanks Peter,
I have been planning this in some form or other, for quite some time. It's only recently that everything has come together. I just started writing up a maintenance schedule for the boat in Excel, and that task alone is quite onerus...but I'm enjoying it as I go along.

Welcome to TF. Once you get going down South, come around the Magellan and then up to Brazilian Coast. I'll be here ready to head North.

Be Happy

Welcome Aboard,
I met one of your sister ships in San Jose Del Cabo in December... that is a great boat ( actually mini ship ) ,the 62 has a totally cool look.
You made a great decision as my experience aboard Nordhavn's has shown them to be really great boats..and built like tanks.
I imagine you are already hooked into the Nordhavn owners network?.. they are a very supportive group and pass along a wealth of information to their group
Have fun with the new endevour

sounds pretty grand to me..I've been running my life that way for the last couple of years, go where i wish, doing what i what, but not on a scale as grand as yours........I decided to buy a trawler cause i had been doing lots of rockfishing and they seemed like good solid seaworthy vessels. Now the forums have got me thinking i should look for something with a greater range than 1200nm and head down towards cabo. Guess for the west coast 1200nm range is fine.
Keep in touch, this forum is the best.

Wow guys,
Lots of replies! You all have made me feel welcome here, so thank you for that!

Hollywood,
Yes, we are on the Nordhavn owners list and you are right, the wealth of information and support there is fantastic, and actually one of the reasons why we chose 'Nordhavn'. We could have gone anyway. Anyway, I'm always looking for more information and just love talking boats which is why I wanted to start participating here (Glad I did! )

Absolutely awesome Nordy. Welcome to the Forum. It's great to have such a capable ship to produce options like "South towards Panama or hang a right & motor towards French Polynesia". I love the '62.

My scandahoovian heritage makes me all giddy around aft pilothouse boats. Great boat, great dream. Welcome!

If you see a little blue Nordic Tug puttering around the Strait of Georgia, it may well be me.
