Vripack, in the Netherlands, has released some drawings of the Nordhavn 148, which will be the largest Nordhavn to date when she debuts in 2020. The 148 will also be the first hull that Nordhavn has built in steel.

This is the second collaboration for Vripack and Nordhavn; the first collaboration was the Nordhavn 80, in 2018.

“Nordhavn were keen to tap into our explorer heritage,” Marnix Hoekstra, co-creative director at Vripack, stated in a press release about the 148. “Nordhavn boats are renowned for venturing to remote, off-the-beaten-track destinations, and so the aim was to demonstrate to owners that this significant latest model has been conceived by a design studio that has a proven track record in this arena.”

Will the Nordhavn 148 be able to cruise in cold climates? Yes. It will have an ice-strengthened hull.
