Nordhavn 80 is the pure example of an excellent cooperation between two legendary brands: Vripack and Nordhavn.
Being the first project of this important cooperation, Nordhavn 80 has every important characteristic of the two companies. The result has led to a homely chic environment. On the one hand is Vripack, an innovative yacht design studio whose empathetic creative philosophy is underpinned by its extensive naval architecture and engineering experience. On the other is Nordhavn, a leader in the construction of expedition yachts whose full-displacement designs are renowned for long-range cruising paired with comfort and ease.
Far removed from Nordhavn’s classic nautical American interiors, Vripack has injected a heart-warming and homely Scandinavian chic environment. Muted woods and neutral tones are fused with accents of daffodil yellow and midnight blue hues in the sky lounge. The main salon is family-centric with a contemporary aesthetic at its core. Driven by a design language that is founded upon comfort, safety and luxury, the result is an expedition wolf swaddled in Hygge’s clothing.
Jim Leishman, vice president of Pacific Asian Enterprises at Nordhavn, comments: “The Nordhavn name has always been synonymous with the highest quality and capability and we are proud to collaborate with Vripack - Europe’s premiere yacht design and engineering firm. It is Nordhavn and Vripack’s mutual intent to offer our clients the most comfortable, safe and luxurious Expedition Class yachts available. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with new and exciting projects and virtually no limits on what we can accomplish together going forward.”
Vripack co-owner, Bart M. Bouwhuis, adds: “Nordhavn’s DNAembodies a design philosophy that is a perfect match with our own ethos; making Owners feel at home at sea, that is why we connect so well. We’re convinced that many exciting projects will emerge in the near future.“
Vripack’s designs are renowned for providing owners with a truly enriching experience on the water. When paired with Nordhavn’s strong, rugged build expertise, it’s clear that expedition yachting has been brought to a new level.
