The New Nordhavn 56 Motorsailer Upon Arrival in the U.S.

Pacific Asian Enterprises late last week released these photos of its brand new 56 Motorsailer, which has just arrived in Dana Point, California.  The boat was offloaded from the container ship in San Diego, and brought up the coast by Nordhavn salesman Eric Leishman (who sold the boat to owners Susan and John Felton) and PAE commissioning team member Bob Loeffler. “The boat runs smooth and quiet and has the feel of a much bigger boat,” said Leishman.  The photos show the new boat in the water, maneuvering near the docks, minus its sailing rig, which will be installed during the coming weeks as the yacht undergoes its final commissioning process.

Nordhavn designer Jeff Leishman said, “Seeing the Motorsailer sitting here in Dana Point next to the Nordhavn 62 and 55 really reveals her true size. So far everyone who has seen it has been blown away at how sleek it looks and how big it feels.”  P.A.E. said the boat will make its public debut at the San Diego Boat Show in January.

 If you would like to read more about the boat, we have articles here and here.  In the meantime, enjoy this updated photo gallery of the latest pictures of the new 56 motorsailer (all images courtesy of P.A.E.).
