This is an Aft Pilothouse wide-body model of the Nordhavn 76 series with the bulbous bow. Although she is a 2005 model, she underwent extensive updates and refits in 2013 and 2014. The work was overseen by her very experienced and mechanically astute current owner. Among the updates, she received a fresh new palette of interior décor. In addition redundancy was added to many of the electrical, electronic and mechanical systems.

The Nordhavn 76 lends itself very well to operation by owner, or by professional crew. In fact, many Nordhavn 76’s are operated by cruising couples.

The aft pilothouse version of the Nordhavn 76 has a majestic profile and a very open interior. She has all of the elegant transoceanic capability that continues to validate Nordhavn’s reputation as the premier producer of passagemaking motoryachts.

Accommodations & Layout


Layout – General:

The interior arrangement - for living and for mechanical spaces - emphasizes onboard comfort, and operation throughout extended passages.

Entering from the cockpit into the salon area: The interior is beautifully crafted in teak, with teak and spruce cabin soles throughout. The galley is laid out one step up on a riser transition at the starboard forward end of the salon. Opposite the galley to port there is a day head, a series of steps leading up to the pilothouse, and another series of steps leading down to the guest cabins, utility room, and engine room. A passageway forward leads down an easy two-step transition to the master stateroom. The master head is forward of the master stateroom.

Down one deck, and generally between station 3 and station 6, there are two guest cabins (each with its own head), and a utility room with laundry appliances and a freezer. The entrance to the engine room is through the utility room.

Access to the pilothouse is from the port side of the salon/galley area up a stairway. The pilothouse also includes two pilot berths, day head, and C-shaped dinette aft of the helm chair, and the command console. Inside the pilothouse to port, steps up provide interior access to the flybridge.  


Interior Comfort Detail:

As in the standard Nordhavn approach, there is extensive noise control and sound attenuation measures incorporated into the construction throughout, including noise

damping in the hull in the area of the propeller, 3” lead/foam insulation in the engine room overhead, and 2” in its sides. Insulation is covered with Soundown aluminum panels. The salon and galley soles have a 2” Nida-core system with a ¼” Soundown de-coupler layer. There are also insulated bulkheads separating living areas and rubber gaskets in laminated interior doorjambs, among other measures.

The main engine dry exhaust system results in engine sound reduction on deck as well as in the interior living spaces.

New LED lighting on dimmers was installed throughout the interior in 2013.


Main Salon:

A beautiful custom dining table and six custom chairs are situated to port. The table has sunburst and compass rose inlaid veneer patterns. A settee lounge and coffee table are located to starboard. Lockers extend along the port side. The salon layout creates a wide-open visual feeling. The teak and spruce sole is covered with wool carpet, new in 2013. There are custom accordion shades on the windows and door, tucked up under the teak valances.

The salon settee to starboard was re-upholstered in 2013.

An HD “Smart TV” is installed on a lift in the joiner work on the port side. A Bose sound system completes the salon entertainment system and was installed new in 2013.



The galley is one-step up at the forward end of the salon. Its position relative to the salon provides a very social connection between the two areas. A lighted wine cabinet faces the salon.

The galley is well appointed with the following appliances and equipment:

  • Granite counter tops with radius edges
  • Tile floor
  • (2) Sub-Zero #700 TCI refrigerator/freezers with icemakers, s/s faces, and custom positive latches for one-handed operation
  • GE Profile dual fuel gas range and electric oven
  • Sharp microwave oven with exhaust blower above range
  • GE Monogram trash compactor
  • Bosch 24” dishwasher
  • Insinkerator 3/4 hp garbage disposal
  • Walk-in pantry of 73 cu. ft.


Master Stateroom and Head:

It is an easy transition from the salon and galley area to the full-beam master stateroom and head. The king-size bed is on centerline and there is unimpeded access all around the bed, and to the desk and clothes storage areas. The master stateroom includes the following features:

  • Stearns and Foster custom mattress (2013)
  • HD “Smart” TV mounted on a lift in an alcove forward in the stateroom (2013).
  • Desk, workspace to starboard
  • Full length dressing mirror
  • Wool carpet on the sole (2013)
  • Book shelves on either side of bed and adjacent to desk to starboard
  • Copious storage in drawers and lockers
  • New Dometic 7600 “Masterflush” head (2014) with stainless steel macerator blades. This type of head is a stand-alone system, as is each of the others throughout the interior


The master head features:

  • Deep bathtub with water jets
  • Separate stall shower
  • Tile floor
  • Granite countertop
  • Air-conditioning and heating vents
  • Exhaust blower
  • New Dometic 7600 head (2014) with system redundancy throughout the boat


Guest Staterooms and Heads:

Two guest staterooms are located on the lower deck down from the salon. The port one has a queen bed, hanging locker and drawer storage. There is a head ensuite with shower, tile floor, granite countertops and exhaust blower.

To starboard, the second guest stateroom has twin beds separated by a bedside table, and a head ensuite with the same appointments as the port stateroom.

Both guest staterooms feature custom Stearns and Foster mattresses. There are heat and air-conditioning controls in each stateroom.

The toilets in the guest heads were replaced with Dometic 7600’s in 2014. Each of the Dometic toilets is a stand-alone system. Although they are very reliable, if one were to malfunction, all of the others would continue to operate independently.


Utility Room/Engine Room Forward Entry:

  • Main electrical distribution panels
  • GE freezer
  • (2) Asko washers and (2) Asko dryers
  • Air-conditioning vent


Engine Room:

Engine room and mechanical spaces are typically Nordhavn – efficient engine and systems layouts with easy inspection and service access including walk-around access to the main engine, and walk-up access to the wing engine and generators. There are engine and systems monitoring modules, a DDEC engine control, a workbench with sink, vise, and a built-in six-drawer tool chest.

The engine room connects with the lazarette through a gasketed aluminum door for all-conditions access to steering gear, mechanical and electrical systems, battery banks, air conditioning, Kabola hot water system heating boiler, and other gear that may be stowed in the large volume of space there.

Engine room ventilation systems include: (2) 230vac 50/60hz intake blowers, (1) 230vac 50/60hz exhaust blower, Ruskin fire/smoke dampers, and auto shutdown for blowers and closure for dampers by Seafire actuation. The engine room and lazarette are well illuminated by AC fluorescent and DC overhead lighting.



The pilothouse is intended to be a comfortable gathering place during extended operation.

In 2005, this Nordhavn 76 was involved in a collision with a freighter while off of the West Coast during her initial delivery. As a testament to her solid construction, she continued north for another 1000 miles to the Pacific Northwest, after a brief stop for inspection. The resulting damage was largely cosmetic. Repairs were completed in the Pacific Northwest by a well-respected yard, and invite close scrutiny. Since that incident, she has logged an additional 20,000 open ocean miles. Before the purchase, she was thoroughly inspected by hull and machinery surveyors and was found to be in superb condition. With a minor list of survey recommendations completed, and many updates, she is ready to continue cruising anywhere her new owners will desire to go.

UPDATE:  June 1, 2016 boat was hauled and bottom recorded in excellent condition. Bottom was coated, zincs renewed, heat exchangers cleaned and prop speed renewed (refer to haul out photos).


Owners’ Comments

We had a 55 Nordhavn for six years, we were very happy with that boat, but our decision to buy a 76 Nordhavn was based on our three year plan to live aboard and cover, at a very leisurely pace, the areas that I will name later.  We felt that this extensive plan commanded a boat that would give us ample room for us and guests, and heavy enough to handle the seas. And I can say now that the 76 is not too big and not too small, it really was the perfect size for us. She presented a commanding and masterful presence on the water wherever we went.

First, we spent seven long months commissioning, repairing, updating, hull painting and loving on this boat that had been only intermittently used for several years by her previous owner. Then we departed Vancouver B.C. anxious to experience her performance and visit some of the world. We stopped in Portland Oregon, then to California and joined up with 35 other boats for the FUBAR of 2013.

The next leg was the coast of Mexico, Central America and the Panama Canal. On the Atlantic side, we cruised the San Blas Islands and headed to Florida to start our long awaited desire to explore the East Coast. In fact, we did not stop to the East Coast of the US, but cruised all the way up to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia; that chapter of our cruising was nothing but exciting, splendid and rewarding. We also visited Nassau, and the Exumas in the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the Spanish and US Virgin Islands…to the Bitter End!

We met so many people and have seen so many beautiful places and scenery that we will never forget. The reliability and seaworthiness of our 76 Nordhavn made it even more memorable.

We have no regrets - and that’s how an adventure should end. To start another one in the right frame of mind, and we chose after three years to build a home in Florida and to continue to explore the East Coast by land, well… not exclusively by land since we will be buying a smaller boat to tour the Intercoastal waters this time.  The grandkids are growing, so this is yet a new season in our lives, and it is time to let her woo and seduce new owners with her strength and comfort!
