About this Nordhavn


TIP-SEA is, without question, the most famous Nordhavn ever built. She went around the world and proved herself as an incredibly tough sea boat. Her current owners went through her from stem to stern and rebuilt any system that was not perfect. They are meticulous and have done an incredible job maintaining her while enjoying her for the last nine years. They have extensively cruised her and logged over 15,000nm. Please see the list of updates and services. 

TIP-SEA is full of fuel and ready for her next adventure. 


Manufacturer Provided Description

The Portuguese bridge on the Nordhavn 40 provides the watchstander a safe exterior conning area but also provides a first line of defense for heavy water that might come over the bow. The solid coaming structure tends to deflect boarding water upward and away from the back sloping wheelhouse windows. Within the well-protected wheelhouse, abundant space is provided for a complete selection of electronics. The rake of the forward wheelhouse windows also reduces interior heat and eliminates glare from primary instrumentation. Additionally, this design provides added space above the line of sight for smaller yet important instrumentation. A full-size folding chart table is located on the port side near the pilothouse door and adequate chart storage is provided below. A folding helm seat is convenient for hand steering and folds out of the way for autopilot operation and standup maneuvering during docking. The most comfortable seating for watchstanding is aft at the settee, which allows easy visibility of instrumentation and an unobstructed exterior view. A full-length watch berth, located aft of the settee, makes watchstanding easy with another person sleeping within arm's reach. Additionally, the settee will serve as another berth, allowing double occupancy of the wheelhouse. The wheelhouse location allows for easier docking than a flybridge might. The helmsman is within easy reach of the port and starboard amidships cleats and can play an active role in line handling during docking. Double access to the boat deck is provided on the port and starboard sides. Access to the foredeck is provided through the Portuguese bridge door where two large integral deck lockers for storage are found. A low-profile cabin house provides headroom forward and two dorade vents for ventilation comfort belowdecks. Back into the wheelhouse and aft through the saloon, the cockpit offers more lounging space than the 46. There's comfortable seating - port and starboard - and easy swimming or tender access through the transom door onto an integral swim step, which stays dry even at full cruising speed. For dockside boarding, an additional door is provided on the starboard side. Portside boarding around the swimstep is convenient using the transom door. If it becomes necessary to move forward from the cockpit, ten-inch-wide walkways are provided on the port and starboard sides with plenty of handholds. Forward is a sunken anchoring well which accommodates the windlass and ensures the dirty runoff during anchor retrieval is contained and drained. A heavy, highly-polished stainless steel double bow roller insures a fairlead to the combination chainwheel and vertical windlass drum. These can be operated independently for use with two anchors. A large deck hatch is provided for fair weather ventilation and light within the owner's cabin below. The entire foredeck is surrounded with lifeline protection and includes a substantial stainless steel bow pulpit. With 120 square feet of boat deck space, there's plenty of room for added deck boxes, bicycles, and cruising gear. An 11-foot tender can be accommodated athwartships at the aft end of the boat deck. The standard spar and boom are fitted with electric winches for easy launching off of either side of the vessel. As with all Nordhavns, a high-level yacht finish is included throughout. Satin finished varnish, teak paneling and trim, Formica, soft vinyl headliners, Corian-type countertops, and fine hardware all complement the beautiful and traditional joinerwork. The main saloon and galley are comparable to the 46 with more than 12 feet of combined width and length. The full-width saloon provides more than sufficient living space. On the starboard side, a settee measuring over eight feet long provides lounging comfort and dining space with a dinette table of almost ten square feet. To port is a TV and entertainment cabinet with extra space for an easy chair. Forward to starboard is added pantry space with room for an enclosed combination washer and dryer. The galley is laid out with ample locker, drawer, and counter space. There are lots of handholds and support for offshore use and the layout allows more than one person in the galley. Over nine square feet of floor space are provided, which allows easy cabinet and refrigerator access. For maximum storage, overhead lockers are included but their depth is limited to allow an easy interface between the galley and saloon. Space is provided for a standup refrigerator, and the stove and oven alcove is outboard while the microwave and vented hood are above. A trash compactor is also available. High-quality Grohe fixtures and Corian-type countertops are standard. The owner's cabin in the 40 is forward and features a queen-size berth, abundant space for drawers, lockers, and hanging lockers. It also includes ample counter and floor space and light. Natural ventilation comes from the dorade vent and hatch above, as well as the two hull-mounted opening ports. A small seating area is provided for dressing and more than six feet of book shelving is also included. Accommodations are provided for guests in a spacious cabin amidships on the port side of the vessel. Large comfortable upper and lower berths, ample drawer and locker space, and spacious seating ensure guest comfort. Adequate ventilation is maintained with a foredeck-mounted dorade vent box and cowl vent ducted to the guest cabin. Two opening ports are also provided. A single head is provided with access from the main passageway. The head is accessible to all without disturbing a sleeping cabin and features large internal dimensions. Significantly larger than the 46 owner's head, there's abundant storage, Corian-type countertops, Grohe sink and shower fixtures, vinyl flooring, an opening port for ventilation and light, and an exhaust blower. Primary access into the engine room is through a door within the guest cabin. A hatch is provided through the cabin sole so inspections and easy access are possible without disturbing the guest cabin. Larger hatches are removable for replacement or installation of large equipment. Benefiting from the Maintenance Strakes, this engine room provides five feet of headroom. The entire engine room is heavily insulated with two inches of sound-deadening material, and completely paneled with attractive and durable, perforated, anodized aluminum sheeting. In addition to the standard systems, there's ample room within the engine compartment for an optional generator, wing engine, watermaker, etc. Service and inspection of machinery is simple within this spacious compartment.
