Pacific Asian Enterprises has begun construction on a brand-new model, the Nordhavn 41. The 41-footer, to debut in early 2020, will replace the builder’s popular 40, which holds the world record for the fastest circumnavigation by a production powerboat.
With a low profile, the new design will be CE Certified Category A Ocean, for winds up to 40 knots and waves over 13 feet. Twin Kubota 75-hp diesels marinized by Beta will be standard. Nordhavn says these engines routinely run 20,000 hours in generator applications. Stabilization will come from ABT Trac 220 stabilizers with 6-square-foot fins and a 4,000-pound lead ballast keel.
The Nordhavn 41 will be available with one or two staterooms. A 12-foot center console tender can be accommodated on deck and an 800-pound davit is standard. The 41 will be built at a new partner factory in Turkey. Because the boat will come out of a Turkish facility, Nordhavn suggests new owners pick up their boats there, cruise through the Mediterranean, and then ship their vessel from Gibraltar to Florida. Shipping across the Atlantic Ocean is included in the purchase price.
