Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

Valentine Weekend a few weeks back- Patricia and I went to the Beau Rivage (Resort/Casino) in Biloxi Mississippi for the awsome champagne brunch they serve. Afterwards, while walking around the Biloxi Small Craft Harbour we saw this ship. She was Bristol every inch- and as salty as any ship I have ever seen. I visited with the HM a bit and he mentioned the was out of California (read- Panama Canal!) and he mentioned she was very high dollar$, I am sure of this also. I had never seen one of these ships before. Have any of you?
While searching out info on her, lots of which I got from a link Keith posted a while back on vessel names/ documentation numbers, I also hit upon an interesting link you guys might want to play on:

Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

Ken,
I didn't have my camera didn't snap one with my phone. There are pics online of her and some info I read about the owner being a real estate investor as I recall and being able to work onboard for most of his business needs. How cool that would be! This girl hadxa polished ss hydraulic davit on the front deck for the dink, and some beautiful brightwork to boot!I looked for a pic of this ship with the whole boat with no luck, here is one from the N site.

RE: Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

Those are beautiful boats, I mean ships. A number of years back I had the privilege of walking the docks in Campbell River and finding*two of them *moored in all of their glory, a rare sight indeed. Interesting contrast in that one was living there and the other had just arrived from Australia. The local one was all shiny and pristine while the Australian one had most of its caprail varnish eroded off by presumably a lot of heavy slogging through challenging waters. The local Nordhavn's original delivery was covered by an article in PMM many years ago.Up close they are beautiful and huge.

RE: Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

We were able to tour a 62 at the Lake Union in the water boat show years ago, and my oh my, what a boat. I believe she was for sale for about $1.4mil. Everything about that boat spoke to me. In my next life, I will study harder, work harder, save all the money I can and buy one of those.*

RE: Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

The 62s are a nice vessel but a crawl around the engine room is very tight for a vessel this size. I've spent some time on the 62. It seems that they are being replaced in the fleet with*"newer" Nordhavn designs that have Captains' quarters up top.

Conrad,
One of the thinks that stood out to me was a small section of the caprail that was taped off, around a foot long. The owner apparently was touching up the varnish there. ALL that ship and he still was able to be concerned with such a small area. The girl looked like new to me- but the documentation showed her to be an '05 I think.

The 62 we toured about ten years ago did have a captains cabin right behind the helm. It was fairly spacious, and of course had the best view.*

RE: Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

Just happened to capture this image last summer of *a Nordhavn 62 enjoying the morning sun in Grace Harbour (B.C.).*It has the later model (or retrofitted) stern bustle that I believe reduces squatting at speed.
Can't quite tell the nationality from the flag.

I have the Nordhavn 62 plans in front of me. As with the one I have been on, there are no Captain quarters on the bridge.* You may have seen a special build, that would certainly be a nice addition.

May have been a special build. As I remember, it was directly behind the bench seat and table, and entered from inside the pilothouse. *The captains cabin/anchor watch cabin was about five or six feet front to back, and about four feet narrower than the pilothouse.

Check this photo. It just catches the edge of the Stidd helm seat looking aft. There is a head in the starboard aft corner, and just to the right you see the door to the captains cabin. (As described to me by the broker)

Check out photo #9

This is the link to the whole ad. She's 1993 vintage, and could be yours for about $860k.

Sorry about all the edits, but I had trouble with the link.*

TomGo to Yachtworld.com and you'll see about eight or ten 62s, and every one is a little or a lot different behind the helm.

That was then , 2 years ago our next door neighbor only had to spring 600K , would be considerably less now.

RE: Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

Owner of Ursa Major and historian for the Romsdals and Malahide Trawlers here.**

In May 2001 I*invited Jim Leishman of Nordhavn aboard the Ursa Major (see photo to your left) a 65 foot Malahide North Sea Trawler (built 1972) in*Seattle.** * Everyone kept*mistaking us for a 62 foot Nordhavn from the time we placed her on Lake Union*in a conspicuous spot*at Gas Works Park Marina.** *I started to learn and talk about the boat and ultimately own her from 1994 to present.** We even had Scandinavian Airline Pilots spot her on approach to airport and track us down.***Jim Leishman*toured Lake Washington with us one evening and took many photos and we talked history.*** We have the much loved Captains berth/Nav Station* behind the helm region albeit without head and he loved that space as one can expect.** It was probably an option the Nordhavn owners could request.** Not all the Malahides had this as each was designed to the buyers desires.* In fact*Ursa Major was designed with side decks wide enough that the owners broad shouldered teen aged sons could run the deck without turning sideways.****

In fact the inspiration for the Nordhavn power yacht line*and the 62 footer were the Romsdals and Malahides (65 foot Greig class Romsdals and the few remaining Norweigen Bear and Beaver Class Malahides) that were produced mainly in wood and*steel*in the 1960's and 1970's.*** Romsdals initially came in 45 foot, 65 foot (Grieg Class), 75 foot (Malaguena Class) 85 foot (Sinbad Class) *and 100 foot (only one produced now the Discovery).** * Jeff Leishman has hailed down a few of our Romsdal owners over the years.*** Jim had never had the opportunity to be aboard the Malahides until then.**** We had a great time.******We have a full stand up and walk around engine room with a Cat 353 inline six diesel happily provided for Ursa when she was a boat owned by the Mafia....does that wet your appetite to read some more history on her?**

You can see some further history on www.classictrawler.net and happy to answer questions as I know them either on forum or by direct email.** Happy even more to hear stories you know of them.***** We have much more information to share as we continue to revise the site.** Hopefully if they ever let me retire you will get to see a*lot more history.*** ** And yes IT IS SPELLED ROMSDAL not ROMSDAHL....

RE: Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

Thanks Joyce, it is easy to see the vessel similarities you note*from afar and up close. I had the pleasure of being anchored next to you last June in Snug Cove on Admiralty Is. I have renamed it Bug Cove. Keep up the good work and thanks for adding to PNW cruising lore.

RE: Nordhavn 62/ New Frontier

Wow Joyce,
Thanks for the informative post!
You have an awsome ship. Such a classic. It is easy to understand why her lines inspired others. I look forward to taking in some "history" on her this evening as time permits!
