Nordhavn Announces New Models


Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc., the parent company of Nordhavn Yachts, announced the addition of two new passagemaking vessels to its lineup.

Building on the success of its model line from 55-65 feet — more than 100 boats with the hull design have sold — the 625 will share a hull with the N60 and have an updated exterior.

“I believed doing an update would provide us with another outstanding derivative,” said Nordhavn co-owner and chief of design Jeff Leishman in a statement about the hull design. “It will feel lighter and brighter and give a sense of a bigger boat.”

The N625 will have three staterooms — two belowdecks and one abaft the wheelhouse — and will be built at South Coast, the builder’s new partner facility in Taiwan. The boat will also take production cues from the company’s N41, with less customization and more standard features.

The Nordhavn 71 has a new hull, designed by the builder’s in-house Computational Fluid Dynamics. Like all of Nordhavn’s passagemakers, the N71 will be built to surpass CE Certification standard for offshore use.

“We took everything we knew from the Nordhavn 68 and 76 models and applied the parts that were most successful into creating the N71,” said Nordhavn project manager Justin Zumwalt.

The N71 will be built at the Ta Shing yard in Taiwan.
