Nordhavn 59 Coastal Pilot

May 2014 New Boats Notebook

We tracked down the inside scoop on what boatbuilders are up to next.

Nordhavn 59 Coastal Pilot

The 59 Coastal Pilot is a fresh take on a good idea for Nordhavn, which, along with its manufacturer Pacific Asian Enterprises, is famed for producing world-girdling vessels. The 59 is more of a transitional boat, aimed either at retirees whose circumnavigating days have passed them by (but for whom that Seattle to Cabo San Lucas voyage looks mighty tempting), or for would-be globetrotters who aren’t ready to delve full bore into expedition-type boats. A CE Category A unlimited offshore rating means this boat is safe, while top speeds cresting 20 knots means she’ll be enjoyable within a limited time frame. That’s important, because even PAE vice president Jim Leishman admits, “You have to have a lot of time to fully enjoy a full-displacement Nordhavn.”
