Wow! They had me when they listed “reading lights” in the master berth as a key selling point.

Don't believe you get to make a purchase subject to successful surveys if bought on eBay.

That's a beauty. Wow. I'm actually surprised that it only weighs 90k lbs. I would think a 60 footer would be way over 100k lbs.

Another vote for Jeff Merrill, he is exceptional and he teaches a seminar at Trawlerfest called Dial In your Trawler; he probably keeps the most bristol boat of anyone you will ever meet.

One other point for Pedro: with your parameters, in order to get the most ideal boat you might consider opening up your search to the west coast US because by not looking there you might miss a real gem that meets all your needs. Plus the kind of boat you're looking for could very easily make that trip from the west through the Panama canal and it would be a wonderful break-in cruise for you... just a thought.
Good luck and keep us posted on your search

Very good advices. I will hire a Broker and I will look everywhere, even NZ and AUS. I can always hire an experienced captain to do the crossing with me.

Traveling to look up boats is just what I need.

This may not suit your tastes, but yesterday I was interested to find Dave Gerr's custom designed Kanter 57 was for sale. It would certainly do the job you want, look fantastic doing it, and have an interesting pedigree.

Inventory Boat Details Page - CenterPointe Yacht Services in STURGEON BAY, Wisconsin - CenterPointe Yacht Services

I was reading his boat design book ("The Nature of Boats") last night and then looked up a few of his works online. Ran across the sale info.

Don't buy a boat from someone who can't spell what it is. Either they're not very bright, or they're not very careful, and either reason is a big red flag!!

The JW Yachts site is so dated and unappealing. For a broker that sells multi million dollar vessels her website is awful!

I hate to "sign up" just to look around and kick some tires.

Yeah, exactly. Not a good setup at all IMO but I'm sure most of her clients come from word of mouth anyway.

Hey Pedro enjoy the journey. If you want a 55 nordhavn unfortunately they are all going to be older than 5 years now. They ceased production of both the 55 and the 47 due to market conditions. These boats are semi custom so if you’ve seen one well then you’ve seen one. Very few boats are fitted out the same. That can be a good or a bad thing. There are a couple of 60s around now that might interest you. Btw I’ve dealt with both of the brokers mentioned in this thread and depending on what you are specifically looking for there might be an even better option. We may have crossed wakes a few years ago off key biscayne. There was an express cruiser, tiara 33 or 36 driven by a fellow named Pedro who slowed down to chat on the way in.

Availability for either an N or KK is very good if you give yourself a 3 month window. Why? because most are purchased by older people who have the time and money and quickly move up or out.

As an example, if you were to call Nordhavn's head sales guy Larry Geiselman in Dana Point and tell him what you are interested in, he would get back to you in very short order with say a newer N52 or N 60 that if not for sale will likely come to the market very soon. Last fall we were a few weeks too late to the party on a very low hour two year old N52 that sold sight unseen to a buyer from England. The good ones move very fast.

But until you are a serious buyer ready to pounce, these deals will not be known or necessarily available to the casual tire kicker.

Thanks for the very good insight. I never had a Tiara, if it was me it had to be either a Scout 30 or a Boston Whaler 32.

Pedro was asking about a Sea Spirit 60, agree JW Yachts has a poor website, but it is easier to look at on Yachtworld; the 2018 price does not include electronics. to avoid the big depreciation, you might consider the 2009 model for sale with only about 2000 hrs on a lugger engine.
I don't know a lot about these but its a pretty boat. Appears to be linked to Queenship builders in BC, Canada, but this particular Sea Spirit 60 is assembled in Zhuhai China (of course lots of trawlers are built over there).
Fuel burn and range look very good for a vessel this size... Maybe some other folks on here know something about this boat or about Queenship....
