Ta Shing Yachts

First Nordhavn 56 Motorsailer Launched

Pacific Asian Enterprises reported last week that it has launched hull #1 of the new 56 Motorsailer line at the Ta Shing Yachts shipyard.  Work on the first example of the new model began in late July of 2007. Present at the splashing were Ta Shing President Tim Juan, Nordhavn Chief Designer Jeff Leishman, Project Manager Pete Eunson, and the boat’s prospective owner John Felton.

Sea trials have begun in the An Ping harbor and PAE said it expects the boat will be shipped late this month to Dana Point, California, at which it will receive its sail rig and final outfitting. In the gallery below are the first photos release of the launch of the Nordhavn 56-01 motorsailer.  You can read about the boat’s specifications and design elements here.
