She is currently cruising the US East Coast, call broker for location. 

Sea Trek is an ocean ready, full displacement trawler that can truly travel to almost any place you can imagine.  The Nordhavn 40 design is the smallest passage maker built by PAE.  A sistership completed a 26-week circumnavigation in 2001.  The Nordhavn 40 platform is solid, stable, and capable – engineered to safely take you across the ocean or along the coast in an economical package that has no equal in this size and price range.

The 40 is the sixth design in the Nordhavn series.  She was conceived to create an entry level vessel that an adventurous couple could use to explore with an “out of the box” range of 3,000 miles.  Most of the people who buy a Nordhavn 40 are owner operators, whether new or seasoned. They appreciate the generous interior accommodations (saloon and galley on the entry level, raised pilothouse and two staterooms with one head on the lower level) and seakindly ride through the water with home comforts and conveniences.

Sea Trek is a first generation (US built) Nordhavn 40 – hull 32 out of 44 produced in southern California by legendary cruising sailboat builder, Pacific Seacraft.   When this California builder faltered at hull 44, PAE/Nordhavn shipped the tooling to the Nordhavn yard in China to continue production stating with hull 45 and differentiated the two versions in this series as Mark I US made, and Mark II China built.

The saloon is spacious because it is pushed out on both sides, no wasted space filled with rarely used walking side decks.  Sea Trek was ordered with the optional fly bridge, which provides an excellent outdoor area above the pilothouse for taking command underway or relaxing when at rest.

Following in the footsteps of the older and larger siblings that preceded her, the Nordhavn 40 established a production hallmark that set the standard for all Nordhavn models to follow.  Starting with highly polished tooling, she has a solid fiberglass hull layup with integrated swim platform.  The deck layout took advantage of many preferred features including a recessed anchor well on the bow, built-in deck boxes on the foredeck and a Portuguese bridge. Outside and up some steps, takes you to the boat deck and flybridge.  The dinghy is mounted aft (athwartships) and the mast supported boom is used to launch and retrieve the tender.

Seventy Nordhavn 40s have been produced, approximately 44 in the US and 30 in China. The rising costs of materials and labor has pushed the new boat price for a well outfitted Nordhavn 40 into an uncomfortable territory. Fortunately, the quality construction and owner care supports a high residual value for brokerage (used) boats that have kept this model increasingly popular for over two decades with no end in sight.

Note:  In 2020 there is a significant import Tariff for Chinese built products (new and used).  The US built 40 Mark I is not subjected to the 26.5% duty, but a non-US flagged brokerage Mark II can be excessively expensive to import – please consult with a qualified maritime attorney before purchasing a Mark II.
