Nordhavn 47 – Navigator 360° Tour
Launch Virtual Tour

Navigator is for sale by her second owners who moved her from the Connecticut to Wisconsin. As the 35th hull number in the series, Navigator features the major product developments incorporated as Nordhavn continually refined and upgraded this popular model such as: 24V electrical, full size watch berth in the pilothouse, opening hatch in the owner stateroom; and the best equipment selections such as a Steelhead crane, Lugger wing engine and ABT TRAC active fin stabilizers – all important additions that simply were not available on earlier hulls.  Navigator’s primary attributes when comparing Nordhavn 47’s:  Two cabin layout, flybridge with stainless framed top, fiberglass stack for the main engine exhaust and a crane for launching the dinghy.

Saloon: The saloon is entered through the Dutch Door.  The interior is lively with beautifully matched teak joinery and additional installations of granite counters throughout. Navigator has comfortable settee seating to port and to starboard.  There are two ottomans (matching upholstery with storage inside).  To starboard, a beautiful custom moveable triangular high-low teak table with inlay.  The teak and spruce soles are covered by edge bound carpeting.  The starboard settee features a 2023 flat screen television and Apple TV, on a lift.  Forward, outboard of the stairs to the pilothouse and behind the tall louvered door are the laundry appliances, a separate clothes washer and clothes dryer.

Galley: This galley has been set up and used to prepare numerous meals on board.  The Viking Professional four-burner propane stove and oven has been the most favorite appliance.  The galley includes a double basin stainless steel sink with Seagull IV purified water tap, dishwasher, trash compactor (note – does not crush, is used as a slide out trash bin now) and Sub-Zero refrigerator with (2) freezer drawers.  There is overhead storage aft and multiple lockers and drawers including a sliding door pantry forward of the Viking.  The microwave and countertop convection ovens were new in 2021.

Pilothouse: The raised pilothouse is a few steps up from the entry level and includes an impressive arrangement to provide a comfortable and easily manageable operational command center.  The Stidd helm chair is adjustable and there is a wraparound bench seat with table behind.  For off watch crew there is a large single watch berth aft with Froli coils.  The windows offer excellent visibility.   There is an impressive assortment of navigation/communication electronics with controls for the bow and stern thruster, main engine, wing engine, generator, navigation computer and UPS, and 2022 Yacht Controller.

Landing: Going down a curved set of stairs you pass the Sub-Zero freezer and then arrive at the lower level landing.  The guest cabin and head is forward, the owners stateroom and head is aft.

Guest Stateroom: The guest stateroom forward is very appealing with the tall headroom and practical layout.  The head, sink and shower are forward.  There are ( qty 3) overhead hatches and ( qty 6) outboard opening portlights.  The double berth is to port with a 2021 HMC custom innerspring berth with Froli system.  For an additional overnight guest, there is an easily opened pipe berth “cot” above.  The desk to starboard features a rare, granite surface with swivel chair and custom bookshelves with deep storage locker. A lighted hanging locker is to port, the tall starboard hanging locker is fitted with shelves.

Owner Stateroom: The location of the owner stateroom aft makes for a very comfortable sleeping area underway.  The overhead hatch (built in to the Portuguese bridge) allows for natural air flow (supplemented by the dorade vent on the foredeck).  The bed is fore/aft with a custom 2022 HMC innerspring mattress with Froli system, reading lights, and granite bed side cabinets. Outboard to port is a bureau with sliding door hanging locker, a bank of drawers and a tilt out laundry hamper. A tall lighted hanging locker is forward to port (converted to shelves) and there are drawers under the bed so you have closing storage options.  There is a flat screen television mounted forward.  Along the starboard side is easy access to the head, sink, and shower.  Entry to the engine room is aft through the teak veneer door.

Engine Room:  2022 lighting. One special machinery highlight aboard is the headroom in the engine room. The white gelcoat throughout was a special order to help reflect light.  There are safety rails (including a tool tray) surrounding the Lugger main engine which is keel cooled with 2021/2022 dry stack exhaust and lagging.  Forward is the aluminum fuel supply tank which is gravity fed from the two fiberglass fuel tanks outboard.  Forward to port is access to the stabilizer and fuel manifolds, there are lockers outboard to starboard with access to through hulls and the other stabilizer. The aft section of the engine room has the Lugger wing engine to port with independent fuel tank and start batteries.  The Northern Lights generator is installed to starboard.  Access panels in the sole allow you to inspect the bilge and stuffing box.

Lazarette: Aft in the engine room is a commercial door that grants access to the lazarette. 2022 lighting. You can also access this area through the cockpit hatch above. Both the engine room and the lazarette are protected with built in fire suppression.  The collection of equipment in this location includes batteries, air conditioning, water maker, crane machinery, steering system, inverter and more.

Foredeck: The foredeck is entered through a fiberglass gate in the Portuguese bridge.  To port are forward shore power connections. There are two large built in deck boxes and three Lewmar hatches. Forward is the anchor well with Maxwell electric windlass with 400’ of chain rode (2022) to a Rocna anchor.  A Freeman hatch opens to access the chain locker, and the auxiliary Fortress anchor.

Portuguese Bridge: The Portuguese bridge allows for a protected deck area forward, a walkway between the foredeck and the pilothouse. There are storage lockers for stowing gear, round opening portlights to the guest stateroom and a recessed hatch that connects to the owner stateroom.

Boat Deck: The boat deck area is divided by the Steelhead crane.  The Caribe RIB tender is mounted to starboard. The dinghy and outboard are original and have been actively used and serviced. The fiberglass dry stack exhaust is forward with flag halyards and antenna mounts.

Flybridge: The view from aloft is wonderful.  The flybridge is directly atop the pilothouse. There is a stainless framed Stamoid cover over top with clear see-through protective polycarbonate curtains that zip in place for all-weather protection and hinge up and out of the way to bring in the breeze.  Two Stidd helm chairs are forward with a bench seat is behind.  The navigation and electronics are easy to see and adjust. Note: See Flybridge summary table below for details.

The Nordhavn 47 is one of the most popular models ever built by PAE.  The hull mold was extended aft to develop the Nordhavn 52, which has a larger cockpit, but the same interior volume as the 47.  The detail photos were taken in June of 2023. Please review the additional information online including photos, 360 room-by-room tour and our YouTube video.  Navigator is available for inspection by appointment – please get in touch to learn more.  We welcome your inquiry, let’s get you aboard!


Navigator is a US Coast Guard Documented vessel (with entry summary paperwork available). The second owners hired Steve D’Antonio during the purchase evaluation and Steve attended the survey haul out and underway, conducting an extensive inspection.  Once closed, Navigator was moved to the Hinckley yard in Maine for several months of systems refreshments and upgrades.  Many of these improvements are behind-the-scenes, like black and gray water plumbing and the main engine exhaust and muffler refit.  Over $200,000.00 was spent to help insure Navigator’s longevity. The owner’s relationship with Steve D’Antonio continues today.  It is very satisfying as a broker to help the original buyer set up an outstanding vessel and continually gratifying to see the care and attention continue with the second owner. She is one of my favorite Nordhavn 47’s.
