Nordhavn 46 – Storm Haven

Sold in: San Diego, California

Storm Haven – A Magnificent Nordhavn 46

The Nordhavn 46 is worthy of entry into the trawler hall of fame if and when such an academy becomes a reality.  The 46 launched the Nordhavn brand and several sister ship 46’s have completed around the world circumnavigations.  With over 80 hulls completed this model has combined to accomplish well over 1,000,000 miles amassing hundreds of long distance passages.  The voyages of Storm Haven include two unheralded Pacific Ocean crossings – from California to New Zealand and back.

The cruising couple who own Storm Haven prefer to avoid fanfare and notoriety.  They love to be out at sea, just the two of them, and they have enjoyed the trawler lifestyle for over a dozen years.  During their ownership, Storm Haven has evolved into a gorgeous yacht; beautifully maintained and constantly improved for performance, reliability and to serve as their home on the water for extended periods of time.

If you can find a Nordhavn 46 in nicer condition with comparable equipment and priced similarly, buy it!  Certain that this will not be the case, we are pleased to offer Storm Haven and have prepared a detailed specification and photos to illustrate much of what she has to offer.

The sellers love Storm Haven and it shows.  They would like to continue to go out cruising, but feel that they have arrived at a stage in their life where a little larger trawler would be more appropriate.

A buyer should carefully compare all of the boats on the market before making an informed decision.  Getting aboard Storm Haven to see for yourself is the best way to convince you that your search is over if you are looking for a classic Nordhavn 46.

Listing broker, Jeff Merrill, has been friends with the owners for a number of years and cannot think of any other Nordhavn 46 he would prefer to own himself.  Storm Haven is ready to take you and your family out on the adventures that only a true full displacement trawler can achieve.

Storm Haven is available for inspection by appointment only as the sellers continue to enjoy her while marketing her for sale.  Please get in touch with Jeff if you would like to schedule a visit and/or if you would like to receive additional photographs or information.
