Nordhavn 80 compact explorer set to launch in 2019

17 November 2017By Chris Jefferies

Nordhavn has opened up about the latest addition to its range of compact explorer yachts the Nordhavn 80, which is due to launch in 2019 at the yard's Xiamen facility.

As the first image below shows, this new 24.38 metre all-GRP displacement yacht inherits much of the rugged styling from the yard’s recent Nordhavn 96 launches Lacey Kay and Vivierae.

The Nordhavn 80 has a maximum draught of 2.02 metres

Accommodation on board the Nordhavn 80 is for up to eight guests split between four cabins including a main-deck owner’s suite. Two doubles and a twin room below decks complete the layout of the guest areas, while the aft crew quarters allows for a staff of two people.

Twin staircases lead up from the bathing platform to the aft deck, which is sheltered by a long upper deck overhang. Here guests can relax around a semi-circular table on built-in seating and three armchairs, while the adjacent electric barbecue allows the crew to whip up a light meal.

Moving inside and the main saloon features two large sofas and two further armchairs facing a 42-inch plasma screen television, which separates this area from the more formal dining space forward.

The skylounge is another key social area with another sofa, dayhead and a four-person table for games or coffee. Out on deck, the Nordhavn 80 boasts enough space for two Nautica RIB tenders and the option of adding a circular superyacht spa pool with adjacent sunpads.

Power will come from a pair of 375hp John Deere 6090SFM85 diesel engines, while the 18,000 litre fuel capacity further bolsters the Nordhavn 80’s explorer yacht credentials.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Xiamen-based yard include the fourth and fifth hulls in the Nordhavn 96 series, which are due to launch in 2017 and 2019 respectively.
