That was a great video! I could stand watching it on this little screen and had to connect to my 55" TV to enjoy it. Just WOW!!

Yup good video!!
I also watched the trip segment videos they were uploading via satellite and posting to Youtube during the trip across last year. . not as polished as this production, but very interesting never the less.

My only question was, how do you pay for 17,000 gallons of diesel at a floating fuel barge in Hong Kong Harbor? Check or American Express!!!

I like to see the prices for long range trawler to remain high.

May 15h is Trawler Fest so it might be at the show. If it is I will make a point of looking at it for you.

I've lusted after Griffin for several years now. If I wasn't up in camp right now, I'd go buy a lottery ticket (which is indeed a tax for those who are bad at math).

That was a great video clip of the Nordhavn.

Would I want one, no I don't think so.

My ideal is a boat I could run with a crew of say two, sleep say 6. It would have to have lovely lines, preferably an older style boat, lots of nice bright woodwork, no need to be able to cross oceans, but a capable coastal cruiser.

Length, I think about 50' is as much as I could handle, or want to.Not too fused about all the whizz bang technical stuff, however a good galley and fridge/freezer is important.

Oh, and a first mate with a sense of adventure and fun to while away the time with would be nice.

Yep, I would take that over the Nordhavn any time.

I'm with you Andy, that thing sure is pretty and God bless those that can afford them. You may be surprised though that the owner and his wife plan on taking that boat out without crew from time to time for an anchor out overnight. Read it in one of the write-ups, the owner was fairly confident she'd be easy enough for them to handle.

I've been aboard and through Griffin when we were in Thorne Bay. Wonderful boat and spotlessly clean. About 5 years ago though. Has a small Cat aft, could even be a 4cyl.

Had pics but can't find them.

PAE (Nordhavn) is doing a scaled down "encore" with the delivery of N8610. I had the fortune of seeing her launched in Xiamen when I was last there, and spent the week with the project manager and captain. Got a tour too! She has a full time crew of 5. Too much for my taste, needs, and certainly my wallet, but impressive none the less.

So...what was the purpose of the stop in Hong Kong? Did I miss something, or did the video never explain that?

Since Xiamen is north of Hong Kong, it would've made more sense to depart directly from there.

I'm not sure I'll get this all correct, but here's what I understand about the Hong Kong stop. That was the first stop for both the 120 and 86 leaving China, and reason number 1 has to do with the formalities of exiting China, and more specifically exporting the boat. Even though Xiamen (where the boats are built) is a HUGE shipping port, apparently it is much easier to depart/export via Hong Kong when you take a boat on it's own bottom. Next is that Hong Kong is a good shake-down cruise distance (I think around 300-400nm), and on each trip several of the key technical people from the yard when on that leg in case of issues, then flew back to Xiamen. Other crew then came on-board for the remainder of the trip. Getting those other people in and out of Hong Kong is much easier than getting them in/out of China if they don't already have a visa. There also are restrictions on who can captain a vessel in Chinese waters and in Hong Kong waters, and there was some juggling around that, but this part is very fuzzy to me. Anyway, those are the reasons I was given.
