If you are looking for a well maintained and upgraded Nordhavn 40, CROSSWINDS is the one!
- BOAT MUST BE SOLD -
- ALL OFFERS CONSIDERED -
The Portuguese bridge on the Nordhavn 40 provides the watchstander a safe exterior conning area but also provides a first line of defense for heavy water that might come over the bow. The solid coaming structure tends to deflect boarding water upward and away from the back sloping wheelhouse windows. Within the well-protected wheelhouse, abundant space is provided for a complete selection of electronics. The rake of the forward wheelhouse windows also reduces interior heat and eliminates glare from primary instrumentation.
Additionally, this design provides added space above the line of sight for smaller yet important instrumentation. A full-size folding chart table is located on the port side near the pilothouse door and adequate chart storage is provided below. A folding helm seat is convenient for hand steering and folds out of the way for autopilot operation and standup maneuvering during docking. The most comfortable seating for watchstanding is aft at the settee, which allows easy visibility of instrumentation and an unobstructed exterior view. A full-length watch berth, located aft of the settee, makes watchstanding easy with another person sleeping within arm's reach. Additionally, the settee will serve as another berth, allowing double occupancy of the wheelhouse.
The wheelhouse location allows for easier docking than a flybridge might. The helmsman is within easy reach of the port and starboard amidships cleats and can play an active role in line handling during docking. Double access to the boat deck is provided on the port and starboard sides. Access to the foredeck is provided through the Portuguese bridge door where two large integral deck lockers for storage are found. A low-profile cabin house provides headroom forward and two dorade vents for ventilation comfort belowdecks. Back into the wheelhouse and aft through the saloon, the cockpit offers more lounging space than the 46. There's comfortable seating - port and starboard - and easy swimming or tender access through the transom door onto an integral swim step, which stays dry even at full cruising speed.
For dockside boarding, an additional door is provided on the starboard side. Portside boarding around the swimstep is convenient using the transom door. If it becomes necessary to move forward from the cockpit, ten-inch-wide walkways are provided on the port and starboard sides with plenty of handholds. Forward is a sunken anchoring well which accommodates the windlass and ensures the dirty runoff during anchor retrieval is contained and drained. A heavy, highly-polished stainless steel double bow roller insures a fairlead to the combination chainwheel and vertical windlass drum. These can be operated independently for use with two anchors. A large deck hatch is provided for fair weather ventilation and light within the owner's cabin below.
The entire foredeck is surrounded with lifeline protection and includes a substantial stainless steel bow pulpit. The spar and boom are fitted with electric winches for easy launching off of either side of the vessel
The full-width saloon provides more than sufficient living space. On the starboard side, a settee measuring over eight feet long provides lounging comfort and dining space with a dinette table of almost ten square feet. To port is a TV and entertainment cabinet with extra space for an easy chair. The galley is laid out with ample locker, drawer, and counter space.
The owner's cabin in the 40 is forward and features a queen-size berth, abundant space for drawers, lockers, and hanging lockers. It also includes ample counter and floor space and light. Natural ventilation comes from the dorade vent and hatch above, as well as the two hull-mounted opening ports. A small seating area is provided for dressing and more than six feet of book shelving is also included.
Accommodations are provided for guests in a spacious cabin amidships on the port side of the vessel. Large comfortable upper and lower berths, ample drawer and locker space, and spacious seating ensure guest comfort. Adequate ventilation is maintained with a foredeck-mounted dorade vent box and cowl vent ducted to the guest cabin. Two opening ports are also provided. A single head is provided with access from the main passageway. The head is accessible to all without disturbing a sleeping cabin and features large internal dimensions.
Primary access into the engine room is through a door within the guest cabin. A hatch is provided through the cabin sole so inspections and easy access are possible without disturbing the guest cabin. Larger hatches are removable for replacement or installation of large equipment. Benefiting from the Maintenance Strakes, this engine room provides five feet of headroom. The entire engine room is heavily insulated with two inches of sound-deadening material, and completely paneled with attractive and durable, perforated, anodized aluminum sheeting. In addition to the standard systems, there's ample room within the engine compartment for the generator, watermaker, etc. Service and inspection of machinery is simple within this spacious compartment.
This standard two stateroom layout features a master stateroom forward with an island berth. There is also a guest stateroom with a two bunks on the port side and a head with shower on the starboard side which is centrally located near both staterooms.
A full width salon and galley are on the same level as the aft deck. The wheelhouse finishes out the interior and is just forward of the galley area.
