Pacific Asian Enterprises, builder of the Nordhavn line, is making progress on the Nordhavn 120, its largest project to date.

Production continues on schedule at Nordhavn's partner factory, South Coast Marine in Xiamen, China. The hull and deck are joined and the engine beds are prepared and ready for installation of the main engines. Delivery is slated for mid-2012.

"This boat is really going to grab the attention of those who are in the 120-foot market," Trever Smith, who oversees the project, said in a statement.

The N120 becomes the queen of Nordhavn's fleet of 16 ocean expedition yachts. The smallest start at 40 feet.
