Nordhavn 80 compact explorer set to launch in 2019
by Chris Jefferies
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.
