The 40 is the sixth design in the Nordhavn series.  She was conceived to create an entry level vessel that an adventurous couple could use to explore with an “out of the box” range of 3,000 miles.  Most of the people who buy a Nordhavn 40 are owner operators, whether new or seasoned. They appreciate the generous interior accommodations (saloon and galley on the entry level, raised pilothouse and two staterooms with one head on the lower level) and seakindly ride through the water with home comforts and conveniences.

Sea Trek is a first generation (US built) Nordhavn 40 – hull 32 out of 44 produced in southern California by legendary cruising sailboat builder, Pacific Seacraft.   When this California builder faltered at hull 44,    PAE/Nordhavn shipped the tooling to the Nordhavn yard in China to continue production stating with hull 45 and differentiated the two versions in this series as Mark I US made, and Mark II China built.

The saloon is spacious because it is pushed out on both sides, no wasted space filled with rarely used walking side decks.  Sea Trek was ordered with the optional fly bridge, which provides an excellent outdoor area above the pilothouse for taking command underway or relaxing when at rest.

Following in the footsteps of the older and larger siblings that preceded her, the Nordhavn 40 established a production hallmark that set the standard for all Nordhavn models to follow.  Starting with highly polished tooling, she has a solid fiberglass hull layup with integrated swim platform.  The deck layout took advantage of many preferred features including a recessed anchor well on the bow, built-in deck boxes on the foredeck and a Portuguese bridge. Outside and up some steps, takes you to the boat deck and flybridge.  The dinghy is mounted aft (athwartships) and the mast supported boom is used to launch and retrieve the tender.

Seventy Nordhavn 40s have been produced, approximately 44 in the US and 30 in China. The rising costs of materials and labor has pushed the new boat price for a well outfitted Nordhavn 40 into an uncomfortable territory. Fortunately, the quality construction and owner care supports a high residual value for brokerage (used) boats that have kept this model increasingly popular for over two decades with no end in sight.

Note:  In 2020 there is a significant import Tariff for Chinese built products (new and used).  The US built 40 Mark I is not subjected to the 26.5% duty, but a non-US flagged brokerage Mark II can be excessively expensive to import – please consult with a qualified maritime attorney before purchasing a Mark II.


Cockpit: The cockpit (aft deck), is sufficiently sized to provide an easy entry landing for gaining access to the interior.  There is a molded in swim platform aft for getting in and out of the water or transitioning to your tender.  There are two hull boarding doors, one aft from the swim platform and one on the starboard side for dock access. A hot and cold fresh water shower is installed for rinsing off.  The large opening floor hatch provides access to the lazarette below. The boat deck extends partially over the cockpit and there are two molded in seats aft, one for supply storage, the other is the propane locker.

  • Two boarding doors – aft and to starboard
  • Swim ladder for swim platform
  • Two built in seats with cushions are aft, facing forward (port side doubles as propane locker)
  • Hot and cold freshwater shower
  • Aft CCTV camera (2020)
  • Air vents for engine room

Lazarette:  Located below the cockpit through the large hatch is the lazarette. The forward bulkhead has a hinged step where most of the house and start batteries are located.  All (5) of the house batteries were replaced in 2019.  The inverter is outboard to starboard, there is an electric bilge pump, water maker and steering. On the port side is the fresh water accumulator tank and hot water tank. An emergency tiller is fitted in the overhead.  The custom swim ladder is stored here too.  This is a larger area that is a convenient storage cavern for extra supplies and gear.

  • Concealed battery bank under forward bulkhead hinged lid step
  • Magnum MS2812 inverter/charger (2019)
  • Jabsco electric bilge pump
  • Watermakers Inc, reverse osmosis 400 GPD water maker (2019)
  • Hydraulic steering ram
  • Raymarine autopilot
  • Seward 10-gallon hot water tank
  • Fresh water accumulator tank
  • Swim ladder
  • Emergency tiller
  • Locking rod from engine room to secure cockpit hatch

Saloon:  One unique feature on the Nordhavn 40 is the lack of walking side decks – this makes for a much wider saloon and through traffic is directed via the interior which is actually faster and safer.  A Diamond SeaGlaze full height door (with dogs and gasketing) leads into the saloon which has an L-shaped Ultraleather settee to starboard and another built in settee to port.  Both settees have storage underneath.  There is an adjustable hi-low teak table which can be positioned in a variety of locations depending upon how you want to use it for eating, working or relaxing. The sole is carpeted. For entertainment, a flat screen television is mounted forward to starboard with a stereo locker.

  • Wall to wall comfortable Berber carpeting (2019)
  • High/Low teak table with folding leaves – moveable

Galley: Moving forward on the same level as the saloon connects you to the galley portside. The beautiful teak faced column that provides delivery of the main engine dry stack exhaust creates a natural divide while retaining an open-air feeling.  The current owners have taken their time aboard seriously, and upgraded the refrigerator freezer system from the standard door opening Sub Zeros (very electricity hungry) to much better and more efficient Vitrifrigo stainless faced drawers (two sets, one in the galley and one outboard to starboard across from the galley). A new microwave oven (stainless surface) with an exhaust fan has also been installed. This is a functional galley with Corian counters, teak lockers and drawers and two opening portlights outboard.  On the aft counter is a large stainless-steel sink with Grohe faucet. There is a Seaward 10 three-burner propane stove and oven with broiler and overhead fan. The galley creates an intersection with two choices, you can go down the centerline hallway to reach the head and staterooms or continue up a few short steps to the pilothouse.

  • Vitrifrigo 110V/12V refrigerator (2018)
  • Additional 110V Vitrifrigo freezer with icemaker in cabinet to starboard opposite galley (2018)

Pilothouse: The Pilothouse is accessed a few steps up from the entry level.  The view from the pilothouse is outstanding – you are surrounded by windows looking forward, outboard and aft. There are two Dutch Doors outboard for easy outside deck access. The navigation equipment was upgraded in 2018/2019 and includes a full suite of Simrad electronics complete with touchscreen control and with all chart software up to date.  There is a stainless-steel wheel with a well laid out dash area fitted with all of the electronics control screens smartly positioned above and below the forward windows. The electrical panel breaker is behind a clear door cabinet to starboard. On the horizontal dash you have the main engine and wing engine control levers.  On the vertical face there are controls for the bow thruster, anchor windlass, horn, wipers, etc. All of the primary ships systems are monitored from this raised pilothouse including controls for the watermaker, generator, inverter and air conditioning systems.  The aft section has a watch berth and a large sofa settee fronted by a custom, adjustable teak table making this an easy place to run the vessel or as a shipside office when in port.

Down a few short steps in the center of the vessel, a wide hallway connects the upper entry level with the staterooms and head below.  This entire lower level floor is carpeted (except the head which has a gelcoat/fiberglass sole).

Guest Stateroom: The guest stateroom is to port and features two bunk beds.  The upper bunk is fixed, the lower bunk can be pulled out to be made wider. There is good lighting overhead and by the bunks. Outboard are two portlights that can be opened for ventilation.  Below the lower bunk you have access to the active fin stabilizer on the port side.

Engine Room: You enter the engine room through a door located aft in the guest stateroom (you can also enter though the sole, aft in the saloon). The maintenance strakes molded into the hull create additional headroom outboard of the main engine on both sides. Two fiberglass fuel tanks with perforated aluminum screens are outboard and each tank has its’ own sight glass for a quick fuel level viewing. Both tanks feed a supply tank in the forward bilge and this reservoir has a water in fuel alarm and a sump built in for stripping out water or fuel tank debris. This engine room is well laid out, has foam padding along the sole and has been equipped with all systems and components easy to inspect and service.  The Lugger L688D main engine is keel cooled with a dry stack exhaust and mated to a Twin Disc 3.0:1 transmission.  This is a continuous duty rated power plant that was engineered for non-stop passage making over several days or weeks.  Fresh air intake from the cockpit risers and internal blowers keep air circulating and the hot air is directed up the stack to vent out above the engine room. circulation to maintain ideal engine room operating temps.  Diesel fuel filtration is accomplished by dual Racor 900 filters and a Racor 500 filter for the generator.  Oil changes are convenient through the use of a Reverso oil change system plumbed to the main engine and the generator.  The 20-gallon Raritan water heater was replaced in 2015.  In order to help with clean fuel Sea Trek has a fuel filtering system and the ability to transfer fuel between tanks.

*OWNER COMMENTS: Details of Sea Trek Insurance Claim – 2018

In September 2018, Sea Trek was on a mooring ball in Beaufort, SC at the Beaufort Downtown Marina. Unfortunately, given the tides/currents and opposing wind, the shackle on the mooring ball failed to rotate properly.  This caused the mooring ball to submerge underneath Sea Trek resulting in the mooring line becoming entangled in the stabilizer fins.  In the process of trying to remedy the situation, a line had to be cut to release Sea Trek from the mooring.  Unbeknownst to us, a line wedged between the stabilizer and the hull which then wrapped around the prop and shaft.  When the main engine was engaged, the line that was wrapped around the shaft caused a sudden stop which impacted the engine mounts. 

Repairs were performed at the highly regarded shipyard, Thunderbolt Marine Inc. in Savannah, Georgia.  Specific repairs related to the incident included new engine mounts.  However, in addition to that and, out of an abundance of caution, we chose to replace the entire main gear system which included a new transmission with an upgrade to include a mechanical pressure gauge as well as the transmission oil cooler. We also had both stabilizer fins pulled and rebuilt to factory specifications.

We have used the boat over 1,090 engine hours (as of July 27, 2020) and over 7,000 nautical miles since then (a large percentage of that was offshore), with no issues arising from this incident. 

This unhappy event actually turned into a blessing in disguise while we paused our adventure while Sea Trek was being repaired to do a major refit of almost every major system including the installation of a new comprehensive electronics/navigation package (Simrad multi-function displays, radar, KVH LTE, etc.), upgraded the inverter/charger, the addition of a 35- 40 GPH watermaker, 760 watt solar panels system with Victron and LC components.  Plus, a Viking Rescyou Pro Offshore life raft, replaced and upgraded all batteries, new refrigerator and freezer, new fresh water electronic controlled head and much more.
