SEABIRD is for sale by her original owners who traded their Sparkman and Stephens sailboat in to embrace life under power with a solid vessel that could take them anywhere. They took delivery in California and have traveled north to Alaska, spending a couple of years in the Northwest before heading south back to California, on to Mexico and then exploring Central America.  Cutting through the Panama Canal they ventured through the Caribbean and then used Florida as their stepping off place to sail eastward. SEABIRD crossed the Atlantic on her own bottom. Two glorious years were spent cruising the Mediterranean before shipping back to the US as on deck cargo aboard a freighter due to other commitments. A veteran of four different summer trips to Alaska and extensive cruising that included ocean passages, island hopping and exploring remote coves and isolated shores. She eventually meandered back to their home port of Santa Barbara, an appropriate and special home for this wonderful trawler. Since 2018, SEABIRD has enjoyed a more coastal lifestyle with many adventures along the US west coast, the California Channel Islands becoming the preferred location to get away.  SEABIRD has travelled more than 40,000 miles.

SEABIRD is hull number 50 of this incredibly popular design.  She is a 2007 model year, commissioned for delivery and handed over for first use in 2008.  The most commonly desired features for a 47 are:  flybridge with fiberglass stack and crane and two-stateroom, two-head interior layout.  SEABIRD has these popular features and much more.

The international appeal of this, “the largest small Nordhavn”, found a growing market in Europe and Australia.  The owners of SEABIRD used their own sailing offshore experiences and intelligent observations of how other 47’s were outfitted to order a spectacular package which has served them well. The Nordhavn 47 was continually improved during her production years and SEABIRD is the beneficiary of those sister ships who preceded her.   It is not easy to compare 47’s from different model years because of the number of choices, changes and refinements.

She is one of the last five to be built and delivered in the U.S. Significant improvements developed over the first few years of production include the following; 24V electrical, full size watch berth in the pilothouse, opening hatch in the master stateroom; and availability of the best equipment selections such as a Steelhead crane, improved Northern Lights generator panels, Lugger wing engine, fiberglass stack enclosure for the dry stack exhaust, saloon flat screen television lift and ABT TRAC active fin stabilizers – all important additions that simply were not available on earlier hulls. She also has SidePower electric bow and stern thrusters for safe and sure arrival in any marina. With her Village Marine 600 GPD water maker, generator and air conditioning, abundant storage for provisions and Sub-Zero refrigeration and freezers you can anchor remotely and enjoy life away from civilization for extended periods of time.

The cockpit and starboard side deck connect up some steps to the Portuguese bridge and foredeck level and then the deck wraps around to port for access to the boat deck and flybridge.  Inside the entry level begins with a roomy saloon (extra space due to her widebody design) and connects with the galley forward to port. Up a short flight of steps brings you to her raised pilothouse which includes a Stidd helm chair and excellent access to nav/com and electrical controls.  There is a bench seat and watch berth aft in the pilothouse. The lower level living areas are reached by the slightly curved stair case on the starboard side. There is a landing area with the choice of going forward to the guest stateroom with double bed, pipe berth, desk, shower and head or aft to the owner cabin with island berth and head with stand up shower to starboard. The door aft in the owner cabin provides the easiest access to the engine room. The engine room has standing headroom forward for easy access and convenience surrounding the Lugger main engine.  The generator, wing engine and fuel manifolds are easy to reach and from this machinery space you can head back to the lazarette through a connected door.

Very few yachts (sail or power) can compete with the capability of the Nordhavn 47 for comfort and reliability as a long distance, ocean-crossing vessel.   Nordhavn 47’s have amassed thousands of miles offshore, crossing the Atlantic and Pacific oceans with regularity and minimal issues (or fanfare). One of the 47’s strongest appeals is that her size allows for generous accommodations, but is not too large, she is an ideal vessel for two people to handle, manage and enjoy.

SEABIRD is a late model, original owner, veteran Nordhavn 47 awaiting the next adventurous owner operator couple who wish to take off without doubt…and perhaps without ever looking back.
