Improve-it = Nordhavn 41

The Nordhavn 41 is the company’s first-ever fully fledged production boat and it has been received exceptionally well with 41 hulls committed, just three years since the launch of the first boat. While the N41 suffered some bumps during its roll out in 2020 thanks to the pandemic and subsequent supply chain roadblocks, the Telgeren Factory which builds the entry level Nordhavn, seems to be hitting its stride right now. The latest boat to be delivered, hull #22 which was exhibited at the 2023 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in October underwent the smoothest commissioning process of any N41 to date, which Nordhavn Vice President Jim Leishman attributes to experience and an easing of logistics issues. Leishman recently returned from a visit to Telgeren, in Tuzla, Turkey along with Chief of Design Jeff Leishman, and project managers Trever Smith and Drew Leishman, who were there to inspect and sea trial the latest hulls. In addition to the precision of work that comes with familiarity, the Nordhavn 41 is undergoing upgrades. The biggest of these comes in the form of new deck tooling. Improvements to the new deck include new hatches, gutters, complete reconfiguration of the deck drains and recessing the deck rails. The Nordhavn 41 is built as a complete boat with virtually every detail included in the spec, which has been enhanced with upgrades on later hulls including Naiad stabilizers, Spurs line cutters, upgraded Steelhead davit with 362 kilograms lift capability, a second Garmin screen, sliding window in galley, flush-mounted LED deck lights and a foredeck awning which is sturdy enough to be left up in most any conditions. The main engines have also been switched out to 115hp Nanni diesels, a move made strictly to address supply issues.
