Project: Nordhavn N148

During the Fort Lauderdale boat show 2019 Nordhavn presented details for a new N148 project.  A new flagship model, the N148 will usurp the N120 as the largest offer from the American imprinted but Chinese build boat builder, and comes from a design by Dutch firm Vripack.  The N148 is also the first Nordhavn to be build of metal, with a steel hull and aluminium upper structure and will also come with an Ice class go anywhere certification.  During the press conference the builder advised that it will take about two years to build the N148 and the 45 meter super yacht is to be build in Europe.  The Vripack design of the N148 takes mixed directions from a hull which looks typical medium sized under fifty meter Dutch super yacht with the upper structure as the pilot house and Portuguese bridge giving into traditional Nordhavn design cues.
