Built by locally owned Nordlund Yachts in 1990 and currently moored in Gig Harbor, the Djeneba has enjoyed a long history of plying Pacific Northwest waters. With three luxurious staterooms, three heads, and two enclosed showers, this well-cared-for 63’ can provide a wide range of entertainment opportunities for a new owner. A major Delta Marine refit, taking place from 2014 to 2015, has given the 33-year-old vessel many more decades of cruising fun to come.
The carpeted main deck salon offers comfortable relaxation on an L-shaped settee, two swivel recliners with matching ottomans, and an attractive marine tile mosaic that accents the adjacent galley counter. Major interior upgrades completed during Djeneba’s refit include new carpeting, new galley cabinets, a new bar, a center-leaf dining table, and an updated salon entertainment center, with a Samsung 46” pop-up TV, an Oppo BluRay player, a KVH TracVision/Direct TV satellite system, and a Wave Rouge Pro Wi-Fi booster. Through the aft salon door, the outdoor cockpit also includes a grill and a deck freezer chest.
Just forward of the salon, galley appliances include an electric Gaggenau four-burner cooktop, a Fagor oven, and a Maytag microwave, a Danby-Silhouette wine chiller, and a U-line ice maker. Recent galley additions include a new Cospolich commercial-grade refrigerator and a Kenmore dishwasher. The counters are topped with Corian and the stainless steel sink includes a KitchenAid disposal. A discreet day head is also located to port opposite of the galley.
Forward of the galley is a new pilothouse deck and rebuilt control console, featuring a full suite of Furuno, BigBay, Nobeltec, and Icom navigation electronics. The helm also includes Hynautic hydraulic steering, a Simrad autopilot, and a cushioned bench seat and table just behind the two helm chairs. Another helm station, with a Bimini top, is located above on the open-air flybridge deck, accessed by interior stairs or by a ladder on the port side of the cockpit. The aft flybridge deck has able space for an Avon six-person life raft, an AB Alumina 13’ center-console RIB tender with a 50-hp outboard, and a 1,000-pound-capacity yacht crane.
Among the many the exterior improvements are a completely new paint job, a refinished fiberglass swim step, new non-skid surfacing on the top and front decks, new walk-around teak decking from bow to stern, an arch reinforcement, new plexiglass forward hatch and cockpit doors, and all-new deck hardware. Other recent additions include new captain’s chairs on the flybridge and new Westmar bow thrusters and stabilizers.
Djeneba is powered by twin Detroit Diesel 8V92 Turbo direct-drive engines that produce at total of 1,100 hp. With a 9- to 12-knot cruising speed at 1,200-1,500 rpm, the vessel has a range that runs roughly “from Seattle to Ketchikan,” the owners said.
