When the first Nordhavn 46 splashed in 1989, it created ripples that rocked the entire yachting industry. From the fledgling Pacific Asian Enterprises, which had been building beautiful Al Mason-designed sailing yachts, the first Nordhavn was proof of concept that you don’t need a sailboat to cruise long distances.
Since then, the Nordhavn line has grown in size as well as popularity, with the Nordhavn 41 now the smallest offering. It is a fitting replacement for the Nordhavn 40, which splashed in 1998 and completed the fastest circumnavigation by a production yacht. The new N41 lives up to that legacy and is a welcome addition to the line, which ranges all the way up to the N148.
