ABOUT THE VESSEL
The Isla Z is a Nordhavn 55 built in 2006-2007. She is 56’1” in length and her beam is 18’. She has a salon, a galley, a master stateroom, a guest stateroom, a fly bridge, a pilot house with a captain”s stateroom, three heads, two showers, and a bathtub! She has had two owners before us. Nordhavns are extremely seaworthy vessels. Prior to the late 80’s, it was thought that only sailboats could manage long distances because they are mainly powered by wind. Many power boat manufacturers experimented successfully with increasing navigation distances, but Nordhavn built the first power vessel to go around the world. A 40’ Nordhavn completed the “Around the World Project” between 2001-2002. They build successful ships because of their high quality and redundancy of systems, allowing for safety in solving problems that occur in trans-oceanic voyages. Our boat is one of approximately 600 Nordhavns that roam the world, ranging in size from 35-120 feet long. She has been maintained exceptionally well and is a beautiful boat. We are delighted to have such a safe and comfortable home with which to see the world.
