Tanglewood N6062 For Sale

As mentioned in this post, we have started the process to build a Nordhavn 68, and as a result, our Nordhavn 60 is now for sale.  If anyone is interested, please contact me via the "Contact Me" form on the right side of this page.

It's rare for a Nordhavn 60 to come up for sale, and even rarer for one as new and well equipped as Tanglewood.  We look forward to placing her in a new home where she can continue to provide years of cruising pleasure and she has for us.

Below is a pretty exhaustive list of features and equipment, and here is a page of pictures.
