Castella Yacht Description

**LLC Owned**

Castella is a beautiful well kept offshore trawler that is turn key in every way. if you are looking for a safe, stable, capable offshore cruiser with zero limitations then take a look at this amazing vessel.  

Nordhavn's goal was to demonstrate that even the smallest boat in its fleet was a safe and seaworthy passagemaker, so upon its launch the 40 circumnavigated the world. Twenty-six weeks after its departure, it completed a 23,000-nautical-mile voyage. And during that very extended shakedown cruise, the boat’s systems and accommodations were rigorously evaluated. Since that time, the 40 has been continuously refined and improved. Today, it has a reputation as one of the most stalwart long-distance cruisers in its size range.

Powered by a Lugger 105hp with a dry exhaust system, the Nordhavn 40 has a range of about 2,400 nautical miles running at seven knots. The boat comes with a wing engine, too, which you can use as a get-home power plant if you have trouble with the main. It has its own shaft and fuel supply, and will push the boat at 4.5 knots.

Propulsion lives in an immaculate engine room, the hallmark of a Nordhavn, where features like a molded fiberglass floor, neat wire runs and a manual bilge pump (a back-up to the electric units) mounted on a shining piece of stainless steel call attention to the builder’s pride in workmanship. There are also gravity-fed fuel tanks, an oil change system, and oversized fuel filters.

The captain navigates from the pilothouse, which is set up for serious cruising with features like reverse-angle windows to cut down on glare, and plenty of room for a suite of electronics. There’s also a folding chart table and a big settee with fold-out cushion behind it that's large enough to accommodate a person who wants to nap before taking a turn at a night watch.

Engine / Fuel System

The main engine, wing engine, and fuel system configuration are the same as fitted on hull #21, the “Around-the-World” boat.

  • Main Engine (3768 hrs) – Lugger 668D, 105hp, continuous-duty rating, w/ Twin Disc 3.9:1 transmission and 2" propeller shaft
  • Main engine alternators – one ea.160-amp, and one ea. 40-amp
  • Wing Engine – (21.1 hrs) Yanmar 3GM 30 with 1" propeller shaft and Martec folding propeller – providing a redundant propulsion system rather than a second source of propulsion linked to the main shaft
  • Two ea. 460 US gallon vinylester resin-laminated fiberglass fuel tanks (920 gals. total). Each tank has a sight gauge and a manhole size access port in the top.
  • Centerline supply tank (2 gals.), gravity fed through 3/4" fuel lines from the main tanks, and serves as a manifold tank for the main engine and generator. The large diameter fuel supply line reduces the chance of debris in the fuel causing a blockage. There is a water drain fitting at the low point in the tank. The centerline tank is also fitted with a sight gauge allowing cumulative fuel consumption from main engine and generator.
  • Dry stack exhaust with a keel cooler eliminates a main engine raw water cooling pump and raw water contact with engine. The main engine exhausts well above deck in moving air, avoiding the effect of exhaust being drawn into the boat from aft.
  • Isolated wing engine fuel tank - (10 gals.) - the tank is fitted with a sight gauge and is independent from the main fuel system. It is filled by using the fuel transfer system so that any fuel transferred to it is filtered through the Racor 900 transfer filter.
  • Racor duplex #75-900 fuel filters with vacuum gauge for main engine
  • Fuel transfer system with in-line Racor 900 filter is used for moving fuel from one tank to the other for trim, or for filtering contaminants. It is also used to fill the wing engine tank.
  • Reverso oil-changing system – plumbed to main and generator engines
  • Engine room fire suppression system 28 lb. bottle
