Nordhavn’s first N63 launched in 2010. Fifteen more have splashed to date, all plying the seven seas. With a nearly transatlantic range at 7 knots, the N63 is a vessel for those who have a “second star to the right and straight on till morning” spirit.
Notable features: The N63 shares its full-displacement hull design with the builder’s earlier 55- and 60-footers. Nordhavn says the N63 is an aft-wheelhouse version of the 60, with an extended cockpit and boat deck.
Cruise speed: 8 to 9 knots.
Belowdecks: The N63 comes with two or three staterooms and two or three heads. Availability: At press time, three N63s were for sale, ranging from $2.2 million for a 2013 to $2.8 million for a 2017.
“The beating heart of the N63 is a 330 hp John Deere engine, which, in the best Nordhavn tradition, is keel-cooled to enable a dry stack exhaust. With capacity for nearly 2,500 gallons of fuel among four tanks, she will have a range of at least 3,000 miles at 7 knots.” —Yachting, March 2012
