Nordhavn launches N100


The California-based shipyard Nordhavn has launched its 30-metre N100 superyacht – christened Serenity.

The expedition yacht is based on the Nordhavn 86/96 hull and has been built for an avid fisherman owner.

Serenity’s hull was extended 36 inches to accommodate a sportfishing cockpit at the owner’s request. The cockpit does not interfere with the guest-lounge space on the yacht. The yacht’s design also features an outdoor entertaining area aft of the saloon.

According to the Nordhavn’s chief of design, Jeff Leishman, speed and fuel capacity will not vary from previous Nordhavn 96 models despite the N100’s increased length.

Unlike previous Nordhavn 96 models, Serenity houses five staterooms with en-suite bathrooms and further accommodation for four crew members.

The interior is decorated with walnut wood and stainless-steel inlays throughout, giving the yacht a neutral grey, cream and brown colour scheme, allowing the artwork on the yacht to standout.

The yacht was built at South Coast Yacht Marine in California and is being prepared to be shipped to the Pacific Asian Enterprise (Nordhavn’s owner) headquarters in Dana Point, CA in the lead up to its final commissioning in March.
