Looking for a used Norhavn 47

If anyone is thinking of selling, would love to hear about your boat!

Nordhavn has 7 listed right now. Amazing the percentage that go through them as so many are just owners moving up to larger ones.

I would approach James Knight, great guy. He'll find you the boat you want, a lot of the boats he sells aren't even listed. He has some very good connections.

If I were looking for a Nordhavn I'd get in touch with Jeff Merrill at Jeff Merrill Yacht Sales. Note: Jeff was with Nordhavn/PAE for many many years until a year or so ago when he went out on his own.

Word has it that Jeff has the largest database, both sellers and buyers, of anyone out there.

Jeff can be reached via his web site: Jeff Merrill Yacht Sales

Yes, I'm a bit biased simply due to my more than seven year relationship with Jeff which began when I first became a Nordhavn dreamer. If anyone can find you a good Nordhavn 47 it will be Jeff.

Thanks. I do have a broker for brokered boats. I am interested in learning of any FSBOs!

You have received some spot on suggestions. Two other names to add to the list, Frank Durksen and Larry Gieselman (Nordhavn). Not sure why you need a buyer's broker but it is an expensive , to you, add on. Also, if not done already have your financing in place so you can move quickly - cash is king.

I am sorry for any confusion. I am not looking for a broker (thanks anyway)! I was interested only in learning if any current owner of a Nordhavn 47 would be interested in selling without a broker, a "FSBO". Again, I apologize for not being clear.

I do have an excellent Norhavn broker. One would indeed be a fool to buy a boat without a full boat and engine survey etc. FSBO's between parties who know what they are doing ( I am an attorney with extensive transactional experience) can be a fine idea in the internet age when parties can be brought together without a broker.

On point for a moment -- there is a very nice 52 being sold in the PNW. It may be worth your while to look it over as it could well be a better investment from both front end and resale. I say front end as its systems are many years newer than most 47s.

Not to mention the benefits of a 5 foot longer WL.

PS, some label boaters fools. Seems to fit so most of us entered the fools club many eons ago. I wear that mantle proudly, much to the dismay of former bosses and clients.

MT I found this under the Welcome Mat section, "Opinions on Bluewater Yachts". FSBO Nordhavns are rare.


Goodluck
Steelydon


I have a nordhavn N46 and it is for sale. This decision came after realizing that our blue water days are over mainly due to age pure and simple. Now our boating days are not over and a few years on the great loop sound very appealing. I am looking at 51/52 foot Bluewater Yachts, diesel 1995 or newer.

We would want more outdoor entertaining space than many double or triple cabins allow. Does anyone have opinions on the Bluewater yachts? Does anyone have a better suggestion with regard to a different brand ? Mainly I will need a max of 30 inch draft, 17 feet air draft reduceable to 15 feet. Thanks for any help on these issues.
Kurt

Thanks Steelydon! The stand up engine room in the N47 is particularly attractive for these two aging boaters so that is one of the reasons we are targeting the N47. I do think we will end up buying a brokered boat but want to cast a wide net in case just the right FSBO is out there
