A stunning vessel – luxurious quality and comfort personified. Pacific Asian Enterprises stopped building its Mason-designed sailing boats some years back to focus on its line of trawlers. With the Nordhavn 56 Motorsailer, it takes another look at sail, but as a way to add range and versatility to an otherwise thoroughly trawler-like vessel. The extra drive from even a modest sail area, coupled with the flexibility of a Hundested controllable-pitch propeller, will stretch the fuel efficiency significantly while also steadying the boat’s motion in a seaway.
Embracing both worlds, the 56 Motorsailer has a sailing cockpit, complete with helm station and controls for the power winches and roller-furling sails, forward of a trawler-style combination saloon and wheelhouse and a trawler-style aft deck.
Has great swim platform aft which doubles as a dinghy dock. You can access the aft covered cockpit from the transom through a door. The cockpit is capped with varnished teak and includes a BBQ/refrigerator/sink console atop a gorgeous teak deck.
From the cockpit, you enter the saloon with u-shaped built-in settee to starboard including a fixed table. On the port side is a straight settee with storage underneath. Behind the port settee is a 40″ Samsung LED T.V. mounted on an Aritex lift. The seating in the saloon area enjoys wonderful views on both sides, plus forward and aft.
