Indian Summer was commissioned by her owners to serve as a retreat from the intense activity of running their business day to day. They chose an interior motif consistent with quiet, library-like appointments that include hunter’s green ultraleather upholstery and plush bound-edge carpets both of which set off very nicely against the teak interior joinery. They also have enjoyed the company of good friends onboard and have made skillful use of the upgraded Viking stove in the galley. Click here for more details.
Kindred Spirits is hull #4 of the Nordhavn 56 Motorsailer series, a design that draws on Pacific Asian Enterprise’s extensive experience with the Nordhavn trawler and Mason sailboat offshore cruising yachts. The 56 is powered by a well-proven Lugger engine combined with a reasonable sailplan each of which could provide primary propulsion, or supplement the other as conditions warrant. The sailplan is contributes effectively to roll resistance. The inclusion of a Hundested variable-pitch propeller system allows adjustment of the engine power output to work with the power from the sailplan to increase fuel efficiency.
