Project: Nordhavn 63

The Nordhavn 63 is yet another development of one of this builders most proven hull forms, the 55. Due to its performance and interior layout capabilities, the 55 has fast become one of the most popular models from Nordhavn, which later was also developed to the new waited 60 foot version to meet owners demands for increased space. This new 63 is actually an aft wheelhouse version of the 60 and its extended cockpit and boat deck. Looks wise, however, the new model retains the same salty feel that popularized the 62. Nordhavn Chief of Design, Jeff Leishman, and his engineering staff continually conceive, design and introduce exciting new models and while the 63 shares the same hull as the 55 and 60, an entire new deck and engine room mold have been created for it, providing increased interior volume and added amenities. The 63 has some important layout changes thanks to the increased length like the center line guest stateroom also featuring four large opening view port lights, and the crew quarters located forward of the engine room cabin. Furnish for the new 63 will be the same paneled cherry wood that was featured on hull number one of the new Expedition Yachtfisher. Power is by the John Deere 6081AFM 330 HP with a ZF ZFW320 transmission with a 4 to 1 reduction gear. The Nordhavn 63 has a projected fuel capacity of 8515 litres which will give a range of about 3,000 NM.
