    Nordhavn Launches 86-foot Flagship Yacht

    The launch has been a much anticipated event after what has been years since the Nordhavn 86 was first conceived then passed through the drawing, tooling and construction phases. “It has been a long, tedious build,” said Smith, the N86 Project Manager. “We have spent so many hours discussing the most minute details to ensure that we have a great start on the N86 project and it has paid off. Hull #1 will be something that everyone at South Coast Marine Xiamen and P.A.E. can be extremely proud of.”

    Now that it is in the water, weight calculations to ballast the boat can be completed and the placement for the boot stripe will be marked. While the boat looks somewhat incomplete, Smith says this is due to the hull painting process which will soon commence with priming of the yacht. Many items previously installed have been removed to make the paint job seamless.

    So what needs to be wrapped up before the 86 makes her way to California? “The paint job needs to be finished, all wiring and plumbing need to be completed, the piping systems need to be pressure tested and varnish needs to be applied,” said Smith. “Assuming all goes well, this boat will be ready to ship in June.”
