Nordhavn 46 2001 model, hull #75, of 81 hulls built of this iconic passagemaker.
We present here an opportunity of a lifetime for those seeking to create their own maritime adventures.
"Tai Mo Shan" (in Cantonese, "The Peak") is a very rare, one owner vessel, built specifically for her experienced owners, who have lavished love and attention on her since taking posession in 2001. She is regularly, but lightly used, having made 16 short handed voyages across the South China Sea, exploring and diving in the Philippines and beyond, and yet, still has moderately low engine hours.
Tai Mo Shan is a comprehensively equipped, and regularly maintained vessel, as can be seen by the Inventory and images following, however, it is important to mention that only a personal inspection will fully reveal the high level of passion and effort that has always gone into presenting her as a truly special vessel.
Tai Mo Shan's wide body asymetrical layout with single walkway to starboard, allows for a spacious saloon and galley area. From the very beginning, the Nordhavn 46 has stood out from all other "trawler yachts. " There was nothing on the market that could compare with its offshore ability, economical operation and luxurious accommodations. In production for over ten years, the Nordhavn 46 has continued its position of prominence, benefiting from hundreds of innovative refinements inspired by owners cruising throughout the world. Interior layout details have been finessed to increase the boat's level of comfort and convenience. Superior systems have been developed and engineered for improved dependability and performance. New materials like fiberglass fuel tanks, vinylester resins and Divinicell cores have been used to increase the life expectancy of components. Engine room sound insulation materials have been upgraded; new, quieter mufflers are being used; and even engine air intakes have been designed to be quieter. The dry exhaust system has been suspended to mechanically isolate it from the rest of the boat, and by extending it to the top of the mast, the exhaust is quieter and cleaner. Fine-tuning the prop specifications has resulted in a more efficient, quieter ride at all speeds. And because today's modern cruising vessel depends more and more on electrical accessories and appliances, the Nordhavn 46's electrical system has undergone a series of upgrades. All wiring is done with fully tinned, marine grade wire and an easy-to-see, custom designed AC/DC distribution panel is installed in the wheelhouse. A heavy-duty inverter system is now standard, as is a foolproof charging system for all battery banks. Detail after detail, the Nordhavn 46 has enjoyed the benefits of its popularity among cruisers who have collectively helped to make each one a better, more refined version of the original, thus "Tai Mo Shan" displays the accumulated knowledege of all of her predecessors.
Of course, a true characteristic of a classic is its everlasting quality and long term popularity. Jeff Leishman, the 46's naval architect, and the rest of the P. A. E. Team, continue to be delighted at the ever-increasing popularity of this vessel. What specifically is the reason for this timeless acceptance? It's really quite simple. The Nordhavn 46 delivers on its promise to safely, comfortably and economically take owners and their families, even those with modest boating skills, anywhere in the world. No other production boat, sail or power, has experienced as many successful circumnavigations or ocean crossings as the Nordhavn 46. And while not all owners plan to take their 46 around the world, they cruise in confidence, knowing their boat has the ability to safely cross oceans. Even if they don't have such ambitious plans, they know their Nordhavn 46 can take them across the bay, down the coast, through the canal and across the stream.
"Tai Mo Shan" is listed on the Hong Kong Register of Small Ships, based in a safe modern marina in Hong Kong, and can be viewed with prior arrangement by contacting the owner's exclusive representative at the contact details shown.
