Mike, I've been talking to Nordhaven about the N41 since it was announced 4/20. I really like the layout and the company's outstanding reputation.
good luck and enjoy whichever way you go. i do like the look of the Greenline. agree for what you are talking about it does sound ideal.Mike, I've been talking to Nordhaven about the N41 since it was announced 4/20. I really like the layout and the company's outstanding reputation.
My plans have changed, and I'm looking to move Florida, live on a boat (my brother lives on the intracoastal, so I have a dock), do the Great Loop and go to the BVI.
With a 39 or 40 Greenline, I can do most of the Great Loop on electric power without the need of a generator or shore power. Under diesel power these boats are twice as fast as the N41. They also have a shallower draft, which is an advantage on parts of the intracoastal. If I start with a 39 or 40, I'll probably upgrade to the new Greenline 45 coupe when it comes out.

not sure my wife has the appetite for a boat as serious as the Nordhavn. so that will be my tipping point. working 6 days a week, not had boats since the kids moved out 25 years ago. cruising to Alaska is my intention at some point.....taking my own sweet time doing it. the Nordhavn is perfect for that.....the small one especially.
You are right, these boats have nothing to do with luxury.
How did the fire on the MV Adventure in the Philippines have anything to do with "Boats’ seaworthiness is related to the crew experience and capacity?"Mike I am in the yachting business for many years. The most of our yachts, at the end of the Med Season, are crossing each year the Atlantic for the Caribbean Season.

I read the article, what was the cause of the fire on the MV Adventure while it sat at the dock? And how does that relate to it's seaworthiness?you havent read the whole article,
Quote...Adventure is the third 62 to be destroyed by accident. Grey Pearl was also destroyed by fire. The Charlotte B was a total loss after running aground on Mexico's Baja peninsula due to human error. A video of the latter's wrecked hull follows the gallery.....unquote
I'm not saying I'm a captain but... boats are not crazy hard to drive. But perhaps not everyone should...
the sea can be cruel. just try to get insurance on a 40 foot plus size, high 6 figure or 7 figure boat. their expectations for your skill set will bring reality to you. and they have the actuarial tables to justify those expectations.
some people never even figure out proper safe anchoring processes. actually a very involved subject matter. lots of interesting stories to be read. a book i purchased recently. it could keep you on dry land.
"not crazy hard".......maybe? but the price for a mistake could be serious indeed.
I'm not sure when, if ever, I'll get to reading a book about anchors.
