Terrapin has been cruised extensively and constantly maintained to insure safe, reliable cruising. The current owners circumnavigated with their young family a couple of decades ago on a Mason sailboat and enjoyed this “second adventure cruise” with family and friends, embracing the comforts and convenience of an oceangoing trawler with all of the amenities and luxuries a Nordhavn 55 affords.
Terrapin is hull 26, a 2007 model of the popular Nordhavn 55 series. She was purchased by her third (current) owners in Washington four years ago. She was sailed to Port Townsend marina for service work to attend to items found during survey and the biggest upgrade was the spectacular green paint job of the hull that turns heads and announces the arrival of a very special boat in every harbor and cove she visits.
After enjoying some Pacific northwest cruising, she was pointed south where she explored the US west coast, then Mexico, Costa Rica and all the way down to the Panama Canal – stopping to visit and enjoy many locales. Once she transited the Canal she made a cross Caribbean crossing to return the US east coast after a visit to the Bahamas.
Listing brokers, Ray Danet and Jeff Merrill have been friends with the owners for many years. Ray met them in the South Pacific while out cruising on sailboats back in the 80’s and 90’s and Jeff helped them purchase Terrapin back in his Nordhavn days.
One of the most significant differences aboard Terrapin is the light and airy staterooms which are all finished in white laminate with teak trim. This “Herreshoff” look was what sold the owners as it was exactly what they were trying to find and is rare on a Nordhavn. It is the same feel that they had on their Mason sailboat, making the transition easier and more familiar.
Terrapin received a refresh and makeover with new chairs in the saloon, appealing upholstery on the flybridge seating and many subtle decorating improvements throughout. More important than cosmetics, Terrapin has undergone an extensive review of equipment and systems to ensure reliability offshore – important lessons learned during their sailing days, you can’t be too prepared! Not only is Terrapin tastefully appointed, her gear has been thoroughly exercised and put through the paces during thousands of trouble-free and comfortable local and long-range passages.
Additional specifications and photos are coming soon. If you would like to step aboard please contact Ray or Jeff to make an appointment and see for yourself why Terrapin is such an extraordinary Nordhavn 55.
