The Nordhavn 35 features a roomy aft pilothouse with the saloon and helm on the same upper level. Down below there is a galley to port, a head with shower to starboard and the master stateroom forward. The cockpit is completely covered by the boat deck overhang and you can easily move along both sides of the pilothouse side decks up to the foredeck. There is a molded in swim platform with swim ladder and two cockpit doors, one aft and one to starboard.
Entering from the cockpit into the pilothouse you pass through a commercial strength Diamond Sea/Glaze Dutch door. The entire interior features exquisite teak joinery. Sanctuary has an L- shaped dinette with fixed teak table to port and a settee to starboard, with helm bench and helm controls forward. The helm station is an impressive console which provides and excellent location to install the navigation and communications electronics in a logical and easy to use and see fashion. The AC/DC electrical panel includes easy to read digital meters. The single lever engine control makes traveling underway and maneuvering in close quarters a breeze; especially since the bow thruster joystick is on the same surface.
A fold down chart top is built in to the bookcase aft to starboard in the pilothouse which provides an outstanding stand up chart table for paper chart navigation underway. The visibility in the pilothouse is exceptional in all directions.
Proceeding forward down four steps to the lower level you arrive first at the U-shaped galley to port. Lonseal flooring makes an attractive compliment to the Corian counter tops. The owners have installed a new American Plumber water filtration system and faucet. Directly opposite the galley to starboard is an enclosed head with separate shower stall.
All the way forward is the expansive master stateroom featuring a huge athwartship bed with access to and from on three sides. There is a separate built in reading seat forward and spacious hanging lockers plus a bureau to starboard with drawers. Batteries and inverter are located under the bed.
The chain locker with divider for two rodes lies below the anchor well and is accessed from the master stateroom bow locker.
The interior features excellent lighting throughout, much of it upgraded to LED. There are hatches and windows in addition to foredeck dorades for superior ventilation. The amount of storage in lockers and drawers throughout is exceptional.
The engine room is located below the pilothouse and accessed through a windowed door below the pantry locker – which features a Splendide clothes washer dryer. The pilothouse sole also has a huge hatch, which lifts up for impressive access to the engine room.
Outside and aft is a huge cockpit with a full-length overhang to keep you out of the weather. Beneath the cockpit is a spacious lazarette topped with a large hatch. The hydraulic steering, autopilot gear and hot water heaters are in the lazarette. There is a built in storage shelf aft for storing containers.
The pilothouse has walking side decks on both sides secured with 1.25” stainless steel rails. The boat deck above the pilothouse is accessed by climbing up the mast using folding steps. The mast has a radar arch and an assortment of antennas installed up top. The mast also has side ladders so you can climb up and survey your surroundings secure in the crow’s nest. You can store your tender on the pilothouse roof while doing a long trip. The mast and boom serves as a dinghy davit to lift or launch your tender from the boat deck and the mast has been engineered so that for going below bridges or to ship over land the rig can be easily tilted forward.
The anchor well forward is set up for two anchors with dual rollers and a secondary deck pipe. Two large bollards have been installed aft of the windlass and a large storage box has been fitted forward of the mast. There are foot controls for the Muir windlass and a seawater deck wash to keep the chain clean as it rides up from the bottom.
The only exterior woodwork is a richly varnished cap rail above the transom with a protective canvas cover. The current owner installed a Nick Jackson transom model davit in 2014 making it much easier to launch the 10.5’ Avon console tender with custom canvas cover and 15 HP Honda outboard. A new Fortress FX 23 anchor with rode is attached to a custom stern plate in the starboard cockpit locker. Sanctuary has a propane Seaward stove in the galley, with two propane tanks conveniently secured in the starboard cockpit sole locker which has a direct drain overboard. There is a complete canvas enclosure for the cockpit.
The Nordhavn 35 is an exceptional coastal trawler designed for an adventurous cruising couple. Her low profile and shallow draft allow her to visit isolated coves. The aft pilothouse design with helm bench seating makes for a very smooth and comfortable ride even in large seas.
Sanctuary has spent several years in the Pacific North West after that her present owners cruised from Seattle to California. Her original owners transited up and down the east coast and wintered in the Bahamas for months on end.
Sanctuary is outfitted for extensive coastal cruising and when ordered she was equipped with all of the most popular factory options. Her present owners have added numerous aftermarket upgrades and enjoyed the trawler lifestyle so much that after all of this effort they have decided they want a larger boat!
Sanctuary is an exceptional boat and an outstanding value – she is aggressively priced to sell quickly! She is ready for an adventurous couple desiring a proper power yacht to safely and comfortably travel to more remote coastal cruising grounds.
Please call today for more details on Sanctuary and learn why after spending close to two weeks aboard, Power and Motoryacht’s Bill Pike stated emphatically in the December 2002 issue,
“Indeed, for a cruising couple, there’s no finer vessel on the market in my opinion.”
