Nordhavn delivers first 100-foot yacht


(DANA POINT, Calif.) — Pacific Asian Enterprises Inc. (PAE) has announced the delivery of the Nordhavn 100 Serenity. The N100 was handed over to its new owners last week, and is currently amid a shakedown cruise throughout Mexico.

Serenity is the first custom 100-foot Nordhavn. It is based on the hull of the Nordhavn 86/96 and includes an additional proper sportfishing cockpit, required by its fishing-avid owner. Completely separate from the “California” deck, the fishing cockpit is courtesy of an elongated transom and swim step that extends the boat’s LOA by 36 inches.

Propulsion is provided by twin Caterpillar C-18 engines each producing 600 hp at 1,800 rpm. Estimated range is 3,000 nautical miles.

Serenity’s interior includes a very unique layout which the owner helped design in order to achieve enough staterooms for his family and sufficient quarters for crew. The result is a five-stateroom retreat, each with ensuite head, plus accommodations for a crew of four.

Destry Darr Designs created a modern, elegant and comfortable living space that features walnut, stainless-steel inlays, Lutron lighting and extraordinary stone work. The medium-dark wood sets off a neutral color scheme of gray, cream and brown and allows the vibrant artwork throughout the boat to stand out.

Serenity’s hull color is Stars and Stripes blue.
