Nordhavn 60 Paradise Found Underway

Share This Story!

Paradise Found has securely toured two different owner couples up and down the US west coast in comfort, safety, and style. She has actively cruised thousands of miles for seasonal vacations, and was regularly serviced and lightly used. As a later hull in the series, hull 49, she has a refined layout, boasting a VIP island berth stateroom forward. Jeff Merrill was involved with this build from the start, working with the original owners to place their order and helping them to create a very well thought out, personalized 60. With all the following extras included, Paradise Found is a trawler that lives up to her name:

  • Twin engine version of the hugely popular Nordhavn 60 design.
  • Only 2,300 hours on her Lugger mains.
  • ABT TRAC active fin stabilizers.
  • Side Power bow and stern thrusters.
  • Northern Lights 20kW generator.
  • Air conditioning and diesel furnace.

The entry level of Paradise Found features an open saloon with large windows connecting to the galley which then transitions in to the owner cabin. The interior has traditional vertical grain teak with a honey color that has aged harmoniously.  There are edge bound carpets protecting the teak and spruce soles and a rich dark granite was installed on the counters.  Additional décor touches like the shade of the upholstery and color of the curtains show off her warm and luxurious accommodations.

Nordhavn 60 Paradise Found Deck Layout

The two staterooms, each with a private head and shower, along with a captain’s cabin and day head in the pilothouse provide plenty of sleeping accommodations.  The saloon has a settee to port with a large teak fixed table opposite two Ekornes recliner chairs and the flat screen television is on a built-in lift. The galley is well supplied for preparing and serving meals.  The raised pilothouse is controlled via a comfortable Stidd helm chair with all necessary navigation and communication in sight and reach. Below the forward guest stateroom is a large basement.  Taking the stairs down from the entry level you arrive in the utility room with top load freezer and laundry appliances. The engine room has enough height that you can lean over a bit to get to both Luggers, as you head aft to the lazarette (water maker, batteries and air conditioning units) you pass the Northern Lights generator.

On deck, a level foredeck with easily deployed ground tackle is backed by the Portuguese bridge. You can travel to the aft deck along the starboard side or visit the boat deck to port. The dinghy is an aluminum bottom rigid inflatable with steering seat and console that is launched from the Steelhead crane.  Up top, the flybridge has a fiberglass Bimini top, two helm chairs and bench seating with a table.

Seeing Paradise Found in person will show you the care and attention that has been continuously bestowed with affection and appreciation.
