The Nordhavn 43, like it's sister models, is built like the proverbial ice-breaker, as if it were a much larger vessel.
MV "Calypso" has been used lightly but regularly, reflecting her very low hours for a vessel of her age. Her inventory displays a most well equipped vessel, which will give her new owners many years of reliable service. The Nordhavn 43 utilizes every square inch of space. She is a homely boat and despite her (relative) small size for a long-range passagemaker, she is a vessel that very much enhances her operator's ability and confidence.
Exclusions: Owner's personal belongings, binoculars, books and art.
