During a production run from 2002 to 2009, Nordhavn built 59 hulls of its N47.

Powered with a single Lugger diesel, the 47 has a 3,000-nautical-mile range at 8 to 9 knots.

The owner’s stateroom is amidships with a guest stateroom forward, both with en suite heads. The 47′s interior has teak-and-spruce soles, teak cabinetry, Sub-Zero and GE appliances, and granite countertops in the galley and heads.

“Entering the space and looking aft, the 173 hp Lugger is on centerline. A stainless-steel grab rail skirts the engine’s perimeter, an asset for performing tasks underway. Abaft the main to port is the 40 hp Yanmar auxiliary engine. I see that little gray Yanmar as peace of mind. It is a V-drive configuration with a separate shaft, a folding propeller and a mechanical transmission. It can power the 47 at 5 knots.”
