Please check out the Bluewater website:

Bluewater is a truly exceptional vessel that is in wonderful condition.  She changed hands in 2021 and her new owners took an accomplished work horse and refreshed her with improvements to cosmetics and mechanicals.  Hull 32 in the series she looks like a boat half her age.

Her interior layout features the coveted, two-stateroom, two-head layout.  When it comes to Bluewater, the first word that comes to mind is, ‘prepared’. Her systems, and abundant spare parts on board make her a very capable ocean crossing vessel.

The original owners were experienced cruisers who had previously owned trawlers. They studied the Nordhavn line extensively during the NAR Atlantic crossing in 2004.  As part of the rally organizing team, they helped guide the fleet and, in the process, became very familiar with the models by watching them at sea and speaking with the owners out cruising.  They selected the Nordhavn 47 as the ideal size for them and asked for one major concession; they requested a conventional wet exhaust for the Lugger main engine instead of the keel cooled, dry stack configuration that is standard. With many redundant systems and numerous upgrades, Bluewater has thrived offshore, her travels include -Caribbean cruising, an Atlantic crossing and visiting the Mediterranean before settling into a slower pace in the summer waters of Maine, and the Canadian Maritimes.

After 16 years of travel, Bluewater transitioned to the second owners who were thrilled to find such a beautifully outfitted, cruise ready 47.  She changed hands in a private transaction and the current owners immediately took to sea and cruised along the eastern seaboard and over to the Bahamas then back to the Chesapeake where they call home and to finalized plans to cross the Atlantic.

The current sellers (the second owners) have spent the last 20 months making her more reliable for a planned cross-Atlantic trip scheduled spring of 2023.  Unfortunately, personal issues and family matters have changed priorities.  Since they can’t take off, they have decided it is best to turn her over to new owners who seek the same type of adventures they had anticipated.

Bluewater shines with a high-end HK Research gel-coat -one of only three [famous] Nordhavns (46 Egret, 47 Bluewater and 52 Dirona) to be molded with this special gel coat.  The luster was enhanced in 2022 using latitude 26 nano ceramic coating.  In 2023, the saloon cushions and upholstery were replaced with tapioca Ultrasuede. The pilothouse upholstery was redone with black ultra-leather and new cushions in 2022. She had ship yard work in 2022 to refresh bottom paint and replace anodes.  While hauled out, a new Aquamet 22 stainless steel shaft (2.5”) and Spurs line cutter were installed.  The propellers were treated with Prop Speed at the same time.

Household conveniences include a full-sized Sub-Zero refrigerator with two freezer drawers and an ice maker, a full-size 30-inch propane gas range, a full-size GE Profile microwave, two sinks, a garbage disposal, and a Seagull freshwater filter. The galley is stocked with silverware, China, and cooking tools.  In the saloon and galley, there are dimmable lights.  There is also a second Sub-Zero freezer unit in the stairwell for long passages. Bluewater has a separate GE Spacesaver clothes washer and dryer for laundry, as well as a Village Marine 600 gallon per day water maker that has had new membranes installed in 2022.  Both heads have Headhunter Royal Flush freshwater toilets, which many consider the best marine toilets on the market.

Highlighted machinery includes: the John Deere / Lugger L668T main engine, a 12 kW Northern Lights large generator, a 6 kW Northern Lights small generator along with a Lugger wing engine (get-home propulsion).  For machinery convenience there is an oil change system, with connections to main engine and transmission, wing engine, and both generators as well as an oil transfer pump and two 12-gallon oil lube tanks (for used and new oil).

The pilothouse is the command center with a wealth of electronics and navigation equipment at your fingertips. There are ships controls for: main and wing engines, both generators, windlass (with counter), active fin stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters, etc.). The rolling motion underway is tamed by Naiad hydraulic stabilization with extra-large 9 square foot fins to provide a smooth ride in rough seas.  The pilothouse also has a Stidd helm chair for running and a captain’s watch berth for rest.  In 2022 had the headliners were redone in black to eliminate reflections while piloting the boat at night. Dimmable LED lights and red night lights were also installed in the pilothouse.

For safe underway operations, an impressive (and recently optimized) navigation and communications arrangement is aboard including these key items:  Furuno Class A AIS system, two Garmin chart plotters, Garmin forward sonar system, Garmin XM weather system, Garmin Fantom digital radar, wind speed and direction, Furuno depth sounder, Furuno chart plotter, Furuno 4k Array Radar, Raymarine depth sounder, single sideband radio, loud hailer, two VHF radios, closed circuit TV cameras (monitoring the engine room and stern), and a search spotlight. The boat is equipped with a Starlink system and a WIFI Ranger system for internet connectivity, and it has a Garmin inReach handheld navigation unit in the pilothouse for navigation and satellite communication.

Safety is the priority aboard and Bluewater has a 4-person life raft, two automatic fire-suppression systems, one in the engine room and one in the lazarette. There is a large electric bilge pump with a pump start counter in the pilothouse for monitoring, as well as two high water bilge pumps and a manual Edson pump. There is an emergency equipment kit for the boat in the forward head, as well as an extensive first aid kit to handle emergencies that may arise while out at sea.

Bluewater is also equipped with various types of communication and emergency equipment, such as life jackets (sport, inflatable, and coast guard), bosun’s chairs, a diving hookah, MOB personal devices, hand-held VHF radios, and marriage saver headsets.

To add additional peace of mind, Bluewater has a Siren Marine 5G remote monitoring system to monitor the sensitive systems on the boat including shore power connectivity, inverter status, battery bank voltages, high water alarms, pilothouse temperature, intrusion detection, and freezer temperatures for both Sub-Zero freezers.

Bluewater is fully loaded with over $100,000 worth of tools and spare parts; she really is prepared self-sufficiency and long distance cruising ocean adventures.

The many redundant systems, comprehensive navigation and communication gear, excellent equipment and systems coupled with numerous conveniences, make her a very special vessel.  She is a proven and well cared for Nordhavn 47 that has been regularly maintained and upgraded.  Bluewater is ready to take you on your next adventure – be it coastal cruising or ocean crossing – she was built to live up to her name.

Boarding Bluewater from the swim platform, you enter her cockpit through a transom boarding gate. Bluewater’s cockpit features a fresh water and sea water washdown hookup, and a remote docking station. This protected deck has a door opening to the foredeck and wraps around the front of the pilothouse before turning aft for a swift flight of steps up to the spacious boat deck. To starboard, the covered side deck leads forward to a set of steps ascending to the Portuguese bridge.

From the aft cockpit and through a weather tight Dutch door, you find yourself entering a spacious and cozy saloon with galley forward to port. Forward and to starboard, side steps bring you up to her raised pilothouse which includes a Stidd helm chair and watch berth. An impressive array of navigational and communications electronics are smartly laden into Bluewater’s helm. Behind the helm chair, an elevated settee and watch berth provide comfortable accommodations for both crew and captain while underway. Starboard of the pilot house, a semi spiral staircase leads down into the forward accommodations. The guest stateroom is forward with a double bed, pipe berth, desk, shower, and head. The owner cabin is aft and features a queen island berth. To starboard, the private owner head is attached and showcases granite counter tops, electric head, and stand-up shower.

Engine Room: Through the robust door and down a few stairs, you will be impressed as soon as you enter. The engine room has standing headroom forward for easy access and convenience surrounding her trademark Lugger main engine featuring a wet exhaust – eliminating the standard dry stack exhaust which takes away valuable space in the galley/saloon area. The two generators, wing engine and fuel manifolds are logically positioned for access and the engine room has a hinged door access to the lazarette. The Lugger main engine propulsion is cooled by a wet exhaust. The engine is accessible on all four sides for service and inspection.  Forward to port is the fuel valving selection locker with return and transfer manifolds and a large gravity fed aluminum supply tank for the main and generator.  To port the main engine and transfer Racors are cleverly protected with easy viewing. Outboard up forward behind hinged opening lockers on both sides grant access to the active fin stabilizers machinery.  The main fiberglass fuel tanks are outboard and have built-in sight glasses. The aft section of the engine room has the Lugger wing engine to port and Northern Lights generator to starboard. The room is well lit and easy to move around in. You can also enter the engine room aft from the saloon floor or through the door connected to the lazarette.

Both the engine room and the lazarette are protected with built in fire suppression. This area is spacious enough to accommodate a lot of extra supplies and is a convenient storage area.  There is a watertight, dogged door that connects the lazarette with the engine room. For confident course steering, she has been upgraded with two Simrad autopilots connected to separate hydraulic steering pumps and two steering rams for redundancy as well as a large stainless steel emergency tiller, which can be used to turn the rudder by hand while underway if necessary.

On deck she has a tall freeboard on her foredeck with built in deck boxes. Bluewater has 440 feet of 3/8 HT chain connected to its main anchor, a 55 kg Rocna, which is deployed using the Maxwell 3500 windlass. The chain and anchors have been recently galvanized to extend their life and improve appearance.  From the Portuguese bridge there is a side deck to starboard that connects with the cockpit and a wrap around to port up to the boat deck where the tender is stored.  The Nautica dinghy with 15 HP Yamaha outboard is launched by the Steelhead 1500HR davit.  On the boat deck there are two large storage boxes for cleaning supplies and other items.

The cockpit is equipped with a propane locker containing three 5-gallon aluminum propane containers, and there is an electric solenoid control in the galley to turn the propane on and off for safety.

Foredeck: The foredeck, in front of the Portuguese bridge, is all business with a large stainless steel bow pulpit, dual bow rollers for anchors and chain, a Maxwell electric windlass and Freeman hatch to reach the divided chain locker below.  The anchor well is dammed and guttered to keep muddy water from spilling onto the foredeck and, like the chain locker, drains overboard. There are two deck molded fiberglass storage lockers and dorade vents providing fresh air ventilation to each stateroom. Primary shore power connections are concealed behind a hinged door aft to port.

Broker comments: 

Versatility, comfort, and long-range stamina are what make a Nordhavn 47 such a profound trawler yacht. Beautifully finished inside and out she is a treasure afloat, equally at ease anchored in some shallows as she is capable and ready to take off on a long-distance, ocean-crossing adventure. Time and time again, Nordhavn 47’s have been hand selected as the vessel of choice to take their crew hundreds of thousands of miles offshore, crossing the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and getting back home safely.  One of the 47’s biggest advantages are their ideal size that provides generous accommodations, extensive storage, access to more marinas and impressive range with a comfortable ride.  The Nordhavn 47 is a vessel two people can handle as owner operators, eagerly maintain, and continuously enjoy.

Bluewater is being sold ready to cruise. Her owners have lovingly cared for her, updated her, and refit her with the intention of international travel. Unfortunately plans change as they do, and their attention has had to be placed elsewhere.

Bluewater is considered a late model N47. This means that numerous factory improvements were made towards these later hulls such as an opening hatch in the owner stateroom, full size watch berth in the pilothouse, and 24V electrical.  Bluewater also has Side-Power electric bow and stern thrusters to allow her operator superior control in most docking situations.

Bluewater has a heritage of long-distance cruising and loving care. Recent improvements include updated soft goods, updated navigational and communication equipment, as well as a modernized sound system. Bluewater’s specialized systems allow comfortable on-board experiences both at the dock, and away.

 It is difficult to summarize in a written preview everything you want to know about Bluewater.   The more you learn, the clearer you will see she has benefited from regular upgrades and continual improvements to continue her active cruising travel plans. To learn more please get in touch to schedule an in-person visit so you can come aboard and see for yourself.
