Nordhavn introduces 52' Coastal Pilot
Noting the continued demand for the unique Nordhavn 35 Coastal Pilot, PAE has been quietly working on a new Coastal Pilot of 52 feet. Designed as an elegant, highly capable coastal cruiser, the new 52 will offer semi displacement cruising speed and efficiency along with the safety and capability sought after by the serious cruiser. With a cruising speed between eight and fifteen knots and a range in excess of 1,000 nautical miles, aside from major ocean crossings, this rugged new Nordhavn can fulfill the most ambitious of cruising dreams.
This new live aboard design can be operated primarily by a cruising couple but also provide exceptional long term accommodations for two guests and overnight bunks for two or three more. The classic sedan configuration was selected with a salon / cockpit interface and the belief that a separated wheelhouse is not necessary on a coastal cruiser where overnight operations are not the norm. This style layout benefits from unrestricted 360 degree visibility, a flowing and spacious salon galley and easy and comfortable access to staterooms and heads.
Access to the full height engine room is provided through the lazarette, the basement utility room or a hatch in the main saloon. Twin Cummins QSB 480 hp engines are provided which will allow a sensible cruising speed of 15 knots and below. If greater speed is required higher output engines are available. The new Coastal Pilot 52 will feature the same systems and engineering as all Nordhavns.
