Kind of a sportfish/trawler look. I really love Nordhavn, but this is one of my least favorite styles. Not a fan of the yellow hull either.

Love the engine room! Interior is nice as well.

Nordhavn stopped building the 46.

Yea I know. They are beautiful and seaworthy boat. The purchase price is more than high enough but then the price of the various electronic "add ons" may add maybe another $50K.

I read, the 43 actually traveled to Bermuda, in the company of other/larger Nordhavns. The 43 was re-fueled underway, as necessary, from a larger Norhavn via a garden hose and a pump.

I am getting too old to start with another boat. Start with active stabilizers.
The disadvantage and advantage is, they only go about 8 knts but, can travel great distances without refueling.

I think I will stick with an American Tug, a fast trawler.
