Hope to see Tanglewood in Alaska this summer.

Thanks Alex. If all goes well, we will be in AK this summer.


We picked up the ship's AIS yesterday as it passed Japan, and it will now go silent until it gets picked up again as is passes various parts of AK. But it's hauling ass at 19 kts. Hoping for reasonable seas. There have been parts of the North Pacific with 45' waves on 12 second intervals, which would not be pretty.

BBC Ruby is approaching Port Angeles. My guess is 0700 pilot, based on her position and speed. If that is the case, darkness will shut down my intentions for a photo. Will monitor.

What an exciting day for you!

Happy Holidays

Commissioning Location

Congratulations on reaching this point with your new build. Will PAE bring the boat to Dana Point for final commissioning? If so I will be sure to keep an eye out for her next time we visit Dana Point for our walk around the harbor and Nordhavn site seeing tour. Always fun to visit.

I should have read a few more posts prior to asking where commissioning is taking place. Disregard my question and best of luck with a smooth and uneventful commissioning.

Do you have eyes on it? It appears to have anchored (or otherwise stopped) just outside of Port Angeles.

Yes, she appears to be anchored or stopped.

Maybe I can get some better photos later...bad light now.

Our friends gave us a boat ride when we picked up our new to us boat a few years back, are you getting a Nordhavn flotilla from Everett to EBM? Today's weather is 100% better than yesterdays excitement. Can't wait to see you coming into the marina!

That's just not fair.


But Customs and offload are planned for tomorrow early AM, so I expect they are staying out of Everett until then. No need to pay more dock fees than necessary.

Makes sense. They needed the pilot to come to Port Angeles.

I have long time customers eagerly awaiting their 40-something being built in Croatia and scheduled for delivery this spring. They had planned to take their N75 over to Europe but aborted and sold it and ordered this one. They'll pick it up over there, cruise on it a year or two , bring it back and PAE will ship it over to Vancouver, all rolled into the price. And they will pay tax on a used boat. I'm interested to see what the construction and engineering looks like.

Wow, TT, almost two years to the day from your first post about this new Nordy 68 to now, and being delivered. I can only imagine the excitement level. Hey is that a Rocna or Manson Supreme already fitted, or is that someone else's Nordy in the right of the photo..?

Whatever it is, it's wrong and too small and there's not enough or possibly too much chain.

Rocna, and an unknown, very curvaceous boat next to it.


Irene and I have theorized that they offloaded a boat destine for Victoria, but it was not possible to observe and confirm.


We head up to Everett in about an hour.

Funny, my wife says the same thing - about the anchor, that is....

Oops, I didn't read this carefully enough. Our boat is the one on the right. The one on the left is the unknown curvaceous boat.
