  1. N96 "New Journey" Has Cast Off
    Remember in late 2022 we informed you about a new Nordhavn N96 that was in transit stateside and expected to be delivered to its owners in early 2023? That N96 with the Rascal Blue hull is now completed and delivered and Nordhavn is now offering a glimpse into the completed product. That vessel has now been christened with the name "New Journey".
  2. Besides its almost unique Rascal Blue finished paint on the exterior hull it is onboard that really shines for the new owners. Alot of work went into finishing out the boat to exacting specifications and the finished product is one to admire. Below we glimpse the finishes that adorn the main salon. Visual and tactile textures are on display in this room whether it is from the visual of the grain direction of the wood work or the depth to the touch of textile used on the area carpets and upholstery. Not to mention the visual contrast between the woods and said textiles while the upholstery offers muted and light appeal the woods are darker but not overly so.
  3. Moving forward, there is a bar that steadfastly separates the galley from the main salon area. It certainly is large enough to seat eight and perhaps can be utilized for informal dining. In the galley, while there is counter space on the sides of the space, perhaps most of the food and cooking preparation will be carried out on the purpose-built island. The space looks worthy to be in a 'high-brow' land-based mansion.
  4. Moving back through the space and heading outside to the aft main deck one will find the cockpit which is fitted with the usual built-in bench seating and accompanying table. Here we see extra seating added to make the cockpit an actual full dining venue. The space is buttoned-up with an isinglass-like product for climate control. While there are work areas off to the sides for line-handling the area in general still feels justified as an informal dining region.
  5. Heading up to the flybridge, the area is much more than a secondary place to helm the yacht from but more of a relaxing spot for owner and guests. There is a jacuzzi situated aft, a bar to starboard under the hardtop and to port there is built-in seating complemented by two tables that can remain small as surfaces for cocktails or be expanded for al-fresco indulgences. Take a look at the blue mosaic on the bar! Notice the blue cove lighting on the hardtop, blue lighting seems to be a bit of a theme onboard along with the Rascal Blue hull colour.
  6. The deck below sits the bridge where the majority of the navigation will be conducted, especially on long passages. There are multiple large-format flat screens here that are multi-function (with the ability to show multiple displays and information simultaneously). All information pertaining to navigation, systems monitoring, security, hotel loading, comfort and safety can all be done from the wheelhouse. The glass for the forward bridge windows are in the typical Nordhavn style (slightly negative sloping). Notice, there is a huge single-piece of glazing installed not interrupted by window mullions.
  7. Head to the opposite end of the boat, down on the lower deck is where you will find guest accommodations. Below is an example of the how the cabins look with spacious accommodation on offer. This is a centerline king with proper side nightstands and a platform diner-alcove style relaxing area by one of the hull windows. Storage is incorporated into any available surroundings. The most spacious layouts tend to have the the accommodation in the hull. The master suite forward, two or three guest cabins mixed between doubles and twins.
  8. The N96 carries on with similar characteristics from the N86 just with the extra length added to the aft cockpit. That extra length not only makes the cockpit more spacious and in the case of New Journey, it also translates into extra space in a number of other areas on the boat. It allows for space bumps below decks in the crew area and lazarette; at main deck level in the cockpit and salon; on the pilothouse deck with a larger sky lounge or upper master stateroom (depending on layout); and an even more capacious fly bridge.
