  1. Nordhavn 112 Unveiled By Nordhavn
    Nordhavn has just unveiled the design for their latest undertaking. It is called the N112 and as the model name suggests it is a 34-meter yacht in the region of 112-feet. The rationale behind the new design according to Chief of Design Jeff Leishman is to offer all the amenities but with the advantage of manageability. Nordhavn's largest boat was the N120, the first of which was a vessel called "Aurora", which might be too much yacht for owners who want to step up from the N96. The N112 is the perfect bridge-gap for owners who want to step down in size from another boat as well.
  2. The Nordhavn 120 is potentially intimidating to some buyers who don’t want to take on a full crew to operate. Additionally, with the trend of Nordhavn buyers who move up in size within the brand, the jump from 96 or even 100 feet to 120 feet was too considerable. "I think this design would be a perfect fit for anyone who has owned a large yacht with lots of crew and is looking to simplify things," Leishman said. "Or anyone looking to upsize from something smaller and wants a true expedition yacht. She’ll be versatile enough to be ideal for a number of different buyers." Leishman says the key to the N112 is keeping it under 400 gross tons, the limit for which many systems and operations requirements are more manageable. He envisions only a small crew needed to help run the boat.
  3. In its current configuration, it has four queen guest cabins and one large owners’ suite, accommodations for up to six crew and a total of 10 heads. Keeping cost in check and also since final details may still be in the works, the Nordhavn 112 will be built out of steel, eliminating the considerable time and expense that FRP tooling requires and allowing delivery of hull number one on an expedited time schedule. Leishman also said that design changes are much easier to accomplish with steel hulls. The super structure could possibly be constructed of aluminum or even FRP. "Building the super structure of FRP is a bit easier since so much of the areas are simple, flat, plain surfaces so the amount of fairing is less and it goes very quickly," he said.
  4. As you would expect from a Nordhavan, it will be a full displacement hull with the capacity to carry enough fuel for transoceanic voyages. Leishman said he focused on creating outside areas for lounging and mimicked balcony-esque deck spaces found on larger megayachts, by way of incorporating folding bulwarks. There are also plans for a large spa tub on the flybridge and a grand lounging area forward of the pilothouse. On the aft deck behind the pilot house will be room to carry up to a 26-foot tender plus a small inflatable and jet skis. She’ll also be fitted with a gym and beach-style swim step.
