Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc., today passed along a new collection of informal photos updating the construction progress of the new Nordhavn 120.  The new-design megayacht will become the new queen of the Nordhavn fleet sometime late this year.  According to PAE,

“Work continues on the first hull of the future queenship of the Nordhavn line: the Nordhavn 120. The latest photos released by the South Coast factory last week illustrate progress on various interior sections of the N120. Evident are the glossy build-up coats of varnish on the cherry wood which will serve to prime the satin finish that the owners have chosen for the woodwork. ‘Even in its unfinished state, the boat is so impressive,’ notes Project Manager Trever Smith.”

Nordhavn 120 Passes Construction Milestone — Photos

Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc., reports the joining of pilothouse and deck to the hull of N120-01, a major milestone in the assembly of the first Nordhavn megayacht.  There is still a long way to go as the company and its construction partner begin to stuff the hull with systems and accommodations, but for the first time you get a real sense of the actual yacht.  Herewith, the photos, courtesy of P.A.E.

First Photos — Nordhavn 120 Megayacht

Well, they don’t come any hotter than this.  These photos were taken overnight when the future queen of the Nordhavn fleet was released from her molds at the factory in China.  I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves, but I think you can get from them a couple of things — first, this is a big yacht. It looks like a Nordhavn but bigger and more powerful; like a professional baseball player on the “juice.” (Just kidding, PAE, really!).

You can also see how gorgeous the hull surfaces look, even before they’ve been finished and painted.  There really is nothing like a composite mold to ensure the perfect finish.  Also note the overall scale of the thing by the fellow walking down into the bulbous bow extension. Looks like there might be room in there for crew quarters!  Updated specs and program info available from P.A.E. here.
