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 the 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 brings. "


Pirate Radio is one of the finest Nordhavn 86s built, she was built to explore the world in style and comfort. What makes this vessel unique is the upper master stateroom just aft of the pilothouse. This allows for beautiful unobstructed views from the upper level. Another positive side effect of the upper master stateroom layout is the private aft deck accessed from the master cabin. This is accessed from two large doors with full height glass which allows for wonderful natural light in this stateroom. In place of the of master stateroom there are two split cabins with ensuite heads. The starboard main level guest cabin has a queen bunk with ample storage. Portlights allow for good natural lights as well and great ventilation. The port side main level guest cabin has a full bunk, nice storage as well as portlights for natural light and good ventilation. Down one flight of stairs are two additional VIP guest staterooms. Both staterooms have ensuite heads with beautiful stonework. The starboard VIP stateroom has a queen berth while the port VIP stateroom has two single berths that are on a track system that allow for two separate twin berths or one single queen berth. Her overall size and volume are comparable to yachts of a much larger size, offering the use of five staterooms plus crew quarters and Captain's cabin.

Pirate Radio was built to the specifications, at the time, of the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) "Guide for Building and Classing Motor Pleasure Yachts". However, the vessel has not been ABS certified to be in class. This means she has all the proper equipment, plumbing, electrical and all else has been upgraded to meet this requirement.

Master Stateroom:

The master stateroom on Pirate Radio is situated aft of the pilothouse. The king size berth is center in the stateroom with vast windows to each side and massive glass doors aft which lead to a private exterior deck. This stateroom has the best views by far onboard Pirate Radio, where you can enjoy unobstructed views while underway or at anchor. If the views aren't enough, there is a drop TV from the overhead at the foot of the master berth. The upper location of this cabin really allows for the ultimate in privacy, because you are up one level from your guests and as far away from the machinery areas as possible. The full ensuite head features an expansive shower, separate toilet room and his and her sinks, lined with impressive stone work. Both the master head and stateroom are loaded with storage areas, from numerous hanging lockers, cabinets, drawers and medicine lockers. Just aft of the master is a private owner's deck area with ample room for lounge chairs.

Guest Staterooms:

Depending on the number of your crew there could be three or four guest cabins onboard Pirate Radio. Two steps down from the main deck is the port guest/captain forward and the starboard guest stateroom. The larger one to starboard will comfortably accommodate important guests. The starboard guest cabin on this main level is a bit smaller, but great for children or grandchildren. The lower deck has two additional VIP staterooms port and starboard (the two VIP staterooms can be rearranged as either two singles in each cabin or king beds). All guest cabins have ensuite heads. In the lower hallway just forward of the watertight door is a laundry/utility room with a full-size washer and dryer, storage and freezer space. This watertight door also keeps the noise in this area down to a minimum.
