Nordhavn N41

by Randy Woods

Hankering for some coastal cruising? Seeking to explore the open ocean? Either way, look no further than the excellently appointed new N41 from Nordhavn.

While the new Nordhavn 41 is perfect for long coastal excursions, it’s also a true open ocean cruiser. After all, its slightly smaller cousin, the Nordhavn 40, set a circumnavigation record for a production powerboat, totaling 23,000 nautical miles in 26 weeks. So, naturally, the N41 is a bluewater beast, capable of battling Force 8 gales and maintaining a range of 3,000+ nautical miles, cruising at 7 knots.

The N41 is currently the smallest boat in Nordhavn’s ocean-crossing portfolio, but it packs in many surprisingly luxurious amenities. Flooring throughout is made of teak and ebony laminate and the cabinetry is walnut with a satin varnish. The main salon features a walnut dinette table with stainless steel pedestal, two cushioned settees on either side with standard vinyl fabric upholstery choices, a custom bench seat with a folding bolster to provide more standing room, and an LED TV and Fusion Marine stereo system for entertaining guests. The salon roof even includes flexible solar panels to provide 400 watts of power.

The portside galley features a stainless steel Vitrifrigo refrigerator/freezer combo, a Wolf three-burner induction stovetop, a GE convection/microwave oven, and white Corian countertops. A commissary area includes a Ugur deep freezer, a washer-dryer, and an access hatch topside. The helm to starboard has a full suite of Garmin equipment, such as an 8616 XSV 16-inch screen, radar, a chart plotter, a depth sounder, autopilot, VHF radio, an AIS 600 transceiver, and a GC 12 video camera in the engine room.

To give it the smoothest ride possible on rough seas, the N41 is equipped with ABT Trac 220 stabilizers and 4,000 pounds of lead ballast in the keel. The power steering system by Hypro Marine also provides electronic command steering for easy maneuverability. Double side decks and side power bow thrusters provide easy movement during docking and mooring. A 12-foot center-console tender comes standard, stored on the aft roof with an 800-pound-capacity Nick Jackson pipe davit.

Belowdecks, the Nordhavn 41 is available with two berth layouts: one with a single owner’s cabin, complete with a memory foam mattress, a walk-in closet, an LED TV, and an en suite head with Grohe sink and stall shower fixtures; the alternative is a two-stateroom version that includes a shared head and bunk beds. Both configurations also include more sleeping space on the settees in the salon and reverse-cycle air conditioning.

Even if you don’t have trans-Pacific plans, it’s nice to know the N41’s clean-burning, twin Kubota 75hp diesels and 60% efficiency propellers could get the job done if needed.
