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. "
The Nordhavn 68 picks up where her iconic smaller sister, the Nordhavn 62, left off: a salty, seaworthy, aft-pilothouse yacht capable of offering extreme comfort, luxury and of course, capability. But the N68 incorporates a modern feel and better space planning, and perfectly fills the size gap that exists between the aft pilothouse N63 and the larger Nordhavn 76 in the current Nordhavn line-up.
"There are those who have great affection for the aft pilothouse boat and the 68 fits perfect among the 62,63 and 76," says PAE President Dan Streech.
The distinct styling of the 62 has been a Nordhavn hallmark for nearly twenty years, and the 68 captures the essence of this vessel yet it incorporates the latest thinking in design, systems and technology and packages it all into a beamier, heartier hull. The interior is stunning with modern styling and beautiful teak joiner work. And despite the size advantage, this vessel is just as easily managed by a cruising couple without need for captain and crew.
The Nordhavn 68 "Sunday Morning" was built by a two-time Nordhavn owner. Nothing was overlooked or left off the table. Only the best systems, appliance and products we used during the build of this fine vessel. Many trips were made to the shipyard in Taiwan to oversee the build and the end product is better because of this. Every system has been extremely well thought out with comfort and safety always in mind. I personally have many hours of sea time onboard "Sunday Morning", in fact weeks of time offshore. I have been fortunate enough to have been invited along for 3 separate trips up and down the east coast and I have experienced the Nordhavn 68 in many different types of sea conditions. Sunday Morning can really handle anything thrown her way and I am 100% confident her sea-worthiness. The new owner can feel comfortable knowing that they will be onboard a safe, reliable vessel that can cruise the world in comfort and style.
Custom 4 cabin layout set similar to a Nordhavn 76. The staircases have been reversed allowing for the galley to move forward and create a larger salon and galley area. The hallway has been deleted in the lower cabin area which in return enlarges both cabins. This layout has become very popular and has since been used on several other new builds.
