Nordhavn is ramping up its sales and service presence in Australasia with the addition of a new agent based in Sydney. Marley Cutbush will oversee Nordhavn Australasia's new Sydney branch office, providing additional resources to buyers in Australia, New Zealand and Asia as well as to current Nordhavn owners seeking sales and/or service assistance.
Cutbush, a lifelong sailor, has amassed nearly a decade of experience with Nordhavn. He was first indoctrinated into the brand as a delivery captain, ushering a Nordhavn 60 from Cabo san Lucas, Mexico to Sydney. During the four-month journey, Cutbush quickly learned to appreciate the design quality and capability of Nordhavns. Additional deliveries followed and eventually Cutbush was tapped by Nordhavn's US team to assist with sales transactions Down Under. In 2020, he supported the brand aboard the Nordhavn 120 My Aurora at the Miami Yacht Show and most recently on the Nordhavn 41 and 60 at the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Besides working with Nordhavn, Cutbush is managing director of Flagship International yacht brokerage house, which he founded in 2020. He is excited to add the Nordhavn brand to his firm's existing portfolio.
"After a close association with the Nordhavn brand and the PAE team for nearly a decade, I'm thrilled to be officially onboard, " Cutbush said. "I'm looking forward to able to share with current and future owners not only my passion for the yachts Nordhavn produce, but my experience and love for the incredible lifestyle Nordhavn ownership's brings. "
Cutbush will formally represent Nordhavn at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show in Australia this May aboard a brand new N41!
For the past 15 years, Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) has devoted its efforts toward the development of the Nordhavn line of offshore passagemaking trawlers. Endeavors such as the Around-The-World voyage in a Nordhavn 40 and the Nordhavn Atlantic Rally, combined with innovative design ideas have set PAE atop this growing industry. However the roots of the successful bluewater poweryacht franchise actually lie under an impressive sailing legacy that saw the construction of over 250 cruising sailboats. PAE's Mason line was first introduced in 1979 and models ranged from 34 to 64 feet.
PAE's interest in sail has been rekindled with their innovative design: a motorsailer that will have true Nordhavn capabilities with transoceanic range under power alone and modest sailing performance in offshore conditions.
Originally designed at 50 feet, market feedback and continued development propelled it into a rugged 56-footer that displaces 95,000 lbs. And carries 800 gallons of fuel. Powered by the proven Lugger 1066 T diesel engine, a top cruising speed of 9 knots will be possible. The rugged Lugger drives a 36-inch four-bladed controllable pitch Hundested propeller and offers unparalleled flexibility of operation. When conditions dictate, the propeller can be fully feathered to enhance sailing performance. Alternatively, the engine can be run at a very low rpm and high propeller pitch combined with the drive and stabilizing force of the sails, which together will provide an astounding level of comfort, economy and capability.
This motorsailer provides a trawler-style aft deck with a sailing cockpit and steering station forward of the saloon/wheelhouse. Access to the forward sailing cockpit is via wide side decks on the port and starboard side of the saloon/wheelhouse. Powered main and headsail furlers along with power winches will make sail handling a manageable affair for short-handed crews. A 10-foot RIB can be accommodated athwartships atop the saloon/wheelhouse roof and a power winch is standard for launching.
Surrounded by rugged half-inch tempered glass windows, the saloon/wheelhouse offers unrestricted 360-degree views providing an ideal steering navigation station for the captain. The cushy wraparound settee to starboard provides a comfortable dining area and two reclining chairs to port are perfect for guests to lounge and take in the scenery.
Going below via a gentle stairway, a large, well-ventilated and lighted galley offers abundant countertop space and cabinet storage as well as refrigerator and freezer space. Luxurious master and guest staterooms are separated by the galley and the full stand-up engine room. Additionally, space is provided for a washer/dryer and tool and spare parts storage.
The motorsailer features the world class fit and finish Nordhavns are known for and includes superb electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems that are a result of PAE's vast offshore experience.
Typical of the Nordhavn line, the motorsailer includes the finest equipment and interior styling.
