The Nordhavn 78 is without doubt the ultimate explorer yacht. This version, built by Pacific Asian Enterprises in 2007 and now lying in New Zealand, is powered by twin Detroit Series 60 engines and has space for 8 guests in 4 cabins.
On the launch of the Nordhavn 78', one reviewer commented;
"What’s not to love about a boat that gives the average boater the freedom to roam the oceans usually reserved for cargo ships and the Royal Navy? Styled to echo the looks of European trawler-style yachts, the new 78' encompasses softer lines with a more traditional trawler style, a covered aft cockpit and vast flybridge. The big thing about the 78 is that is seems to focus equally on time spent stationary as it does on time spent ploughing across the globe’s oceans."
