Broker Tom Allen in the Seattle office of Fraser Yachts Worldwide has listed the 76-foot Nordhavn Cadenza for sale on the brokerage market. The 2006 build underwent a substantial refit in 2009 — one that included converting the yacht from diesel-electric to conventional drives.

“It was built as a diesel-electric boat, and that system failed,” Allen says. “The owners decided that instead of trying to repair it, they would go back to conventional drives. They hired a naval architect to do stability tests and everything necessary, and it was a tremendous project. It took a year of work in Port Townshend, in Washington state. The boat turned out to be fabulous, and the boat is impeccable through and through. This owner is not shy about spending money.”

Cadenza has cruised all along the East Coast and throughout the Caribbean, receiving further upgrades including new teak decks.

"It has traveled well, and it lives in a boathouse in Anacortes, so it is in really spectacular condition," Allen says. "The owners are building a new boat, a 108-footer, and it will launch this summer, so that's why Cadenza is listed now. We'd like to get it sold by this summer."

The asking price on Cadenza is $3.5 million. Learn more at www.fraseryachts.com.
