The low profile, low center of gravity and her bulbous bow make the 57 one of the best handling Nordvan's ever built. Her seaworthiness, three stateroom layout and 3000 NM cruising range make DADDY'S MONEY the perfect family cruising vessel. She is capable and proven of reaching all corners of the globe as well as being a great platform for a short hop to the islands.
DADDY'S MONEY is a very well equipped long range vessel with a proven record. She won't last long at the current asking price. Make an appointment to preview DADDY'S MONEY !

As you enter the salon area you notice the low mounted windows which provide excellent 270 degree visibility from either a sitting or standing position. The open galley and breakfast bar concept is nothing short of inviting. The galley is well equipped including ample storage for extended cruising.
The 57 Nordhavn has been designed as a long distance passagemaker, but has the amenities to be a live aboard that rarely leaves the dock. Since most buyers of this type of yacht want a combination of the two, DADDY'S MONEY fits these needs extremely well.
Forward is the VIP guest suite with centerline queen berth, which is more comfortable than the master suite of many other yachts. Lots of storage and lockers and a large hatch for natural light. An ensuite head with stall shower is shared with the second Guest Stateroom to port with over and under single berths.
The GALLEY, at the forward end of the salon, is arranged for gourmet meals aboard, with Corian style counter tops and dual stainless sinks. The propane stove is a Force 10 with three burners, broiler, and oven, complete with two 30 LB aluminum gas tanks. Subzero refrigerator and freezer, In-sink Erator garbage disposal, GE convection microwave, Grohe Lady Lux faucet. There is a Sea Freeze icemaker in the salon, a Force 10 barbecue grill in the cockpit, and a GE freezer in the lazerette. There is a full size Whirlpool washer and dryer, and a built in Nutone central vacuum system
The MAIN SALON has very large windows, with custom teak blinds, at a height that allows good visibility to see outside. To port are a settee and a fold out table. To starboard are two chairs, and a cabinet containing the audio/visual equipment. The television is a Sony, with a Sony DSS receiver and Seatel DSS Satellite dish. Panasonic VCR and Bose Surround Sound with Yamaha receiver for your entertainment needs. The Seatel is great for checking the weather when you are in the Bahamas or offshore.
The MASTER STATEROOM is amidships for more comfortable sleeping while underway, and quieter also, away from the slap of water on the hull while on the hook. The berth is an island queen centerline. The ensuite head has a separate stall shower with Corian style countertops. Good hanging lockers and storage, and there is a Sony TV.
All of the staterooms are Herreschoff style, white finish with wood trim, to open the spaces and make them brighter. Endura flooring throughout, and Hella 12 volt fans for extra ventilation, along with four Nicro solar vents and two dorades. Of course there are heating and air conditioning controls for the cabins. The heads are Vacu Flush, operating with fresh water.
The PILOTHOUSE is a few steps up from the galley with a curved settee and a dinette table. The equipment includes;
Don't confuse Nordhavn's with the average white boat you see for sale. None of the same rules apply. Continuous duty rated engines, for example, are only used on commercial vessels and Nordhavn's.
That means that they could have an expected life of somewhere between 20,000 and 40,000 hours and are designed to be overhauled to new in the hull economically. Virtually, all the components you find in a Nordhavn were the best of the breed at the time the boat was built.
The most difficult thing for most buyers to understand is that when you find a high hour boat, it must have been continuously maintained in order to remain in top quality , so you've found a jewel. A low hour boat can appear cosmetically excellent but hide a multitude of hidden issues, most of which are directly connected to seawater or corrosion eating up expensive stuff you can't see. But, you will absolutely pay for it after the purchase, usually one frustrating surprise at a time.
You don't need to worry about high hours on Northern Lights generators or Lugger propulsion engines that get broken in around 5000 hours. I have seen a few engines killed by negligence or seawater intrusion but none that actually wore out in a Nordhavn. The John Deer's are also good.
Finally, all used boats have some cosmetic opportunities both external and internal but it is part of buying a used boat.
