Introduction

The current owners, a highly experienced voyaging couple, acquired Capers last year, and spent a small fortune on deferred maintenance items and upgrades, preparing for more world voyaging.

This investment will be for the long term benefit of her next owner, as an unexpected change in plans reluctantly brings Capers to market. She is in wonderful condition, with a final detailing and hull polish and wax currently underway.

A popular model, the Nordhavn 46 is a distinctive pilothouse trawler with a ballasted, full-displacement hull, and the sturdy profile of a rugged North Sea workboat, all surrounding a supremely comfortable cruising yacht intended for voyaging.

A total of 82 Nordhavn 46 ocean trawlers were built, and only nine of those with a flybridge.

According to the company, no other production yacht has had as many ocean crossings as the Nordhavn 46. A Lugger 143 hp diesel will cruise at 8 knots with a range of 1,800 – 2,000 miles.

The attention to detail, quality joinery, and comfortable spaces found throughout this top-tier yacht is exceptional. And Capers’ next owner will benefit from the current owner’s diligent service and maintenance.

Throughout Capers

Two interiors were offered in the Nordhavn 46. Both with two cabins and two heads. The earlier layout, Plan A, puts the owner’s stateroom amidships. The forward stateroom is reached separately from the pilothouse. 

Plan B, found in most later models, has the owner’s stateroom forward and both staterooms are accessed from the salon, with no need to transit the pilothouse.

This is the Plan B layout, with two cabins and two heads,

The asymmetrical salon is offset to port leaving a broad safe starboard-side walkway from the cockpit to the bow, through the Portuguese bridge.

Level with the salon, a U-shaped galley with is forward to port. 

The pilothouse, four steps up from the salon, includes a watch berth and port and starboard side doors to the outside decks. 

Finishing throughout is in teak with hand rubbed satin finish. The sole is varnished teak and holly. Headliners in the salon, galley and pilothouse are all brand new, and all overhead lighting was recently upgraded to LEDs.
