    Continuing to build on the highly successful introductions of the Nordhavn 72, 47 and 43, Pacific Asian Enterprises (P.A.E.) introduces the Nordhavn 55, a long-range, full-displacement passage maker that incorporates the company's newest styling and heightened focus on enhanced interior accommodations. "The popularity of our new 47 confirmed our belief that our owners want more living space and more conveniences without sacrificing offshore capability, " said Jim Leishman, vice president of P.A.E. "Our new N55 offers the interior room of many luxurious 60-footers, and yet she has the ability to cross oceans and take her owners to the far corners of the globe." She has been lovingly cared by her owner and well maintained by the boat captain and crew. She must be sold as the owner wants to upgrade.

Accommodation & Layouts

Main Saloon and Galley:

Entering the saloon your first view will be one of a very open and elegant interior. The teak joinery is beautiful and is well complimented by the granite countertops and teak and spruce sole. The saloon features an extra large built-in teak dinette table with a starburst wood inlay to port with an L-shaped settee (abundant storage beneath). To starboard is a TV cabinet with a large flat screen TV on a powered lift, and two comfortable chairs. The settees are upholstered with new genuine leather black Chesterfield. Also included are two factory custom bar stools done in teak wood.

The saloon and the entire ship, including the flat-screen TVs in the salon and master suite, are wired with a state-of-the-art Bose sound system. The Saloon features a satellite TV converter.

This single level “living room” is divided from an extremely functional galley making it easy to prepare, cook and serve meals and refreshments while enjoying the company of guests. The saloon transitions down a couple steps into an offshore functional galley that includes many brand name appliances. One noticeable feature is the double basin sink which maximizes space for the rest of the galley counter top. The faucet is a pull-out type for rinsing dishes, made by Grohe. The commercial grade electrical top, with GE electric oven, is truly an impressive appliance and it is properly trimmed with a stainless fiddle rail to secure pots and pans while cooking underway (the range can be converted to propane - all the pipes and safety wiring are still in place). The granite counter tops extend up along the forward area.

There is excellent ventilation in the galley provided by an opening port light outboard. A large stainless steel convection microwave with exhaust blower is provided for those quick meals when making passages. The optional spice rack is conveniently tucked away outboard. There are plenty of overhead and under counter lockers for storing everything you need in a proper seagoing galley.   Also included are a GE trash compactor and GE dishwasher. Forward and towards centerline is a full sized Sub Zero refrigerator and underneath are two Sub Zero freezer drawers for cold storage and the bottom drawer includes an icemaker.

Lower Level Crew Cabin:

From the galley one goes down stairs, and in this area you have a separate Bosch clothes washer and a top loading 7.2 cubic foot GE freezer. This whole area has been beautifully upgraded to a crew cabin with varnished teak veneer paneling and a single athwartship berth, air-conditioning duct, extraction fan and reading light.

This utility area serves as the transition aft into the engine room, with full standing room.


The command center of the Nordhavn 55 is the pilothouse where you have an unimpeded view of your surroundings – or of your nav systems, live video shots from around the ship, or of your satellite TV or DVDs on any one of three large Furuno console screens. The windows are all commercial strength. Forward visibility is excellent through four large, thick tempered glass panes. The forward dash cabinetry is teak and includes dark Formica instrument panels. The overhead is finished in white Majilite with Cantalupi lights and the ceiling over the helm is black Majilite.  The floor is Lonseal vinyl with raised “coin” sized nonskid pattern.

Secured in the center of the control area is a beautiful Stidd helm chair. The pilothouse is air conditioned with reverse cycle heating for optimum climate control.

Below the counter of the helm dash and just forward of the vertically mounted custom teak steering wheel, the wing engine and generator control panels are positioned so that they can be easily monitored while remaining out of the way. There is a circuit breaker panel that houses all of the DC and AC breakers, the air conditioning select breakers and more. All of the electrical panels are clearly labeled and the current flow gauges are easy-to-read digital displays. All of the ship’s electrical distribution panels are hinged for access to wiring and each wire is labelled.

There is also a nice enclosed Captain’s cabin aft with a double berth featuring lots of storage underneath the berth. For long passages with a husband and wife team it’s nice to have someone close by. In this area you also have a separate head with a large opening port for great ventilation. This saves a lot of time by not having to go up and down the stairs.

Just forward of the pilothouse cabin is a nice settee bench fronted by a permanent fixed teak wood table with starburst pattern inlay. The wheelhouse upholstery is done in new genuine leather black Chesterfield. The settee includes storage underneath; there are two slide-out chart drawers directly below the foot landing. Another large locker is located aft by the galley stairs.

The pilothouse includes two Dutch doors – port and starboard – which lead out onto the Portuguese bridge. Outside you can go up and aft to port to the boat deck, or out the starboard door make a quick turn to the foredeck or aft to walk along the covered side deck on your way to the cockpit.

Guest Stateroom:

The large VIP guest stateroom is forward, with separate head and shower stall.   There is a large double berth to port with drawers below and book shelves behind the berth. An additional sea berth has been added (a pipe berth “cot”) for extra crew or family as well. On the port side, over the desk, a new single upper berth, made of teak, offers a perfect watch berth or an extra berth for more passengers. She sleeps a total of nine with private storage for each passenger.

Forward you adjoin a generous head with tiled floors and a large shower with bi-fold door. The sink has a broad surface area and there are plenty of storage lockers for personal effects. In the forward area of the stateroom are two large, lighted and cedar lined hanging lockers on both sides. To starboard in the guest stateroom is an impressive ‘office sized’ desk with swing out seat.

A separate air-conditioning digital control pad allows adjustment of temperature and includes an outlet blower into the head. There are two overhead outboard hatches in the center of the room and in the top of the shower. There is plenty of light and available ventilation in this magnificent forward area. One very nice feature is that between the office area and the double berth is a bi-fold door and a swing away bulkhead. When guests are aboard the area can become very private. When one wishes, you can open the bi-fold door and swing the mid bulkhead forward to make this area large and open. The stateroom also features a TV with DVD player.

From this cabin through an opening floor hatch is a vast storage area that has to be seen to be believed. The “basement” includes the fresh water heater and plumbing as well as access to the bow thruster. It also has the upgraded aluminum overhead paneling. New FRP shelves and lockers have been added for storage of spare parts. The two water makers (220V AC & 24 V DC) are also located here.

Master Stateroom:

There are two ways to access the owner’s stateroom. The first is from the main saloon and the second is from the stairway coming from the pilothouse. The master is located amidships and the large queen sized island berth runs athwartship for maximum comfort while underway. Stepping inside the stateroom you will also appreciate the large hanging lockers. There are three opening port lights outboard to port. The master stateroom is air-conditioned. There are drawers under the bed. This is a very quiet place on the boat (even while underway!) and a nice reclusive area to read or sleep. A new teak desk/vanity with fiddles and a chair have been added under the TV display.

The master connects to a large head to starboard, which includes a fresh water toilet, granite counter and sink and a separate bath tub with shower! The tub area has additional vertical granite. This entire enclosure is designed for simple maintenance and is ventilated by two port lights and a shower exhaust blower. The bathroom features new white gel coated shelves for linens.

For down time entertainment, you will enjoy the wall mounted flat-screen TV with built-in DVD player, and listening to the audio system where you can enjoy music on the Bose speakers situated throughout the room. Two custom Tempur-Pedic mattress pads make the master suite bed a wonderful place to catch a good night’s sleep.

Engine Room:

The engine room is located below the main saloon and is primarily accessed through the laundry/ utility room. You can also enter via the aft door connecting the lazarette with the engine room and you can get into the engine room through the removable floor sections of the saloon. There is 6' plus headroom around the optional extra large engine.

The Nordhavn 55 engine room is exceptionally well laid out. One of Nordhavn’s truly innovative passage-making developments is the simplification of all the ship’s systems; specifically the fuel system and its relationship with the main engine. There is a built-in fuel transfer and polishing system to keep your fuel clean. The entire engine room is insulated with sound deadening foam and shrouded with perforated aluminum sheeting for a clean professional look. All of the valves for fuel lines are clearly labeled and neatly tucked away behind easily opened hatches. The through hulls are also clearly identified and easy to get to. The amount of space in this area makes it a simple task to inspect the oil level of the generator and wing engine. The main engine has a keel cooler recessed in the hull and is the exhaust is dry stacked.

The engine room features a Lugger 70 HP wing engine to starboard – with its own day tank of fuel, and a 20kW Northern Lights generator to port plus a new Mastervolt 4KVA backup generator in its soundsheild. There is a Reverso oil change system for easy evacuation of the main, wing and generator– a key to ensuring machinery longevity. Many spare parts are included with the ship.


Located beneath the aft deck cockpit, the lazarette is accessed via a fiberglass deck hatch. The hydraulic steering is located aft and there is also an emergency tiller mounted. All of the through hulls are easily accesible. The Trace pure sine wave 4000 watt 24volt inverter/battery charger is located in the lazarette, and the backup Mastervolt charger (24/100) with solar panels regulators is also located here. Additionally, for sport and underwater recreation, there is a Bauer Jr. Dive Compressor with100' Hookah hose, and a four scuba tank storage units, in addition to a workshop air compressor.

A Glendinning power 50 amp shore power cord retriever system is installed on the stern. A fiberglass console with sink and fresh water faucet is also located forward. There is a boarding door to starboard along the side deck and one aft to the swim platform. The cockpit freshwater wash down makes it easy to maintain this area and there is a built-in Scandvik hot and cold freshwater shower. Extra stainless steel handrails have been installed to make moving about easier and safer while underway. The cockpit can be fully enclosed with Sunbrella roll-up panels.
