The Nordhavn 80 is a sleek, modern Nordhavn that checks all the boxes for the couple who wants a larger yacht without the need for a lot of crew. Capable of being handled by the owners and a captain or single crew member, the N80 makes noteworthy use of her volume. With four staterooms plus space designated for up to two crew, and an abundance of large, entertaining areas indoors and out, she is Nordhavn’s answer to the "petite superyacht." And while she is Nordhavn at her core—founded on the brand’s fundamental principles of seaworthiness, functional form and engineering integrity, the N80 mixes in easily with the megayacht set, brandishing the same sleek lines and bespoke interiors as her larger counterparts (yet at a size that allows her to be managed much more efficiently).
This new yacht is powered by twin 375-hp John Deere engines and includes many layout options including captain’s cabin behind the bridge or upper level owner’s suite behind the bridge in lieu of the sky lounge. PAE offers standard luxurious interior finishes or buyers may choose to work with their own designer, including renowned Dutch design and architecture firm, Vripack, which has created specifically for the N80, beautiful homey designs that skew Scandi-comfy-chic.
Jim and Jeff Leishman, Dan Streech and Dave Harlow discuss the new Nordhavn 80 in a recent webinar at the Nordhavn headquarters.
What makes the Nordhavn 80 a standout is the way the builder has been able to maximize interior volume and give the impression of being on a much larger boat. The N80 competes with yachts in a bigger category for overall space abundance, yet remarkably, can be operated with minimal crew.
Hull No. 1 was initially purchased by a buyer who chose a more traditional interior that features cherry wood. Midway through the build process, the buyer switched to a new N96. It was then purchased by a client who was able to make a few more custom touches including the addition of a spa tub, sunpad and other exterior elements.
The N80's flybridge, which surpasses those on other similarly-sized Nordhavns, allows for the spa tub, sunbathing and BBQ areas with ample space left over for guests to sit on settees or move about freely.According to Nordhavn, machinery spaces are comparable to those on vessels in the 120- to 150-foot range.
