So, Cal, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? We started cruising in 1985 on “Quicksilver Girl” a 34 ft sloop which was primarily in Florida and the Bahamas. In 1992 Hurricane Andrew hit Miami and sunk our boat. In 1994 we bought an Alden 44 “ Exile”and cruised the Bahamas, Caribbean, East Coast US/ Mediterranean for 10 years and finally San Francisco. Since acquiring “New Fidelity” we have cruised the East Coast of the US, returning to Spain, ...

So, Callum, tell us a little something about your current role as Captain in charge of all things Nordhavn? Regulars will know that nearly 10 years ago, I had a contract across my desk to sell my company for a figure just shy of £5m. Unfortunately this was about 4 weeks before Lehman Brothers went pop and to cut a long story short, the deal evaporated and over the coming years, I nearly lost the lot. In the 4-weeks that I imagined myself as a minnow in the world of high-finance, I cruised th...

Guest Interview Christopher and Diana Dent – Colibri N50 So, Chris, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? A bit of background:  Diana grew up in southern Russia (though I tease her that there is no such place as southern Russia) and later eastern Ukraine (now, sadly, a war zone) and was an avid boater and fisherman with her sister and parents, who owned a small motor boat – something almost unheard of in Soviet times. Diana’s family would spen...

So, Kevin and Alison, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? We are fairly new to the Nordhavn community, having just purchased our boat in June, 2016.  We brought her up the coast from San Diego to Seattle, which was our first blue water trip with overnight passages. Since bringing Red Rover home we’ve been pretty focused on a series of projects and improvements which has limited our time out to short trips to the San Juan Islands and harbors ar...

So, Bob tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? During my junior high school years in the Pacific Northwest (shortly after dinosaurs roamed the earth), I was introduced to cruising, navigation and single screw boat handling by my best friend who invited me to go cruising with him and his folks in their beautifully home built 32’ Monk Sr. design boat. Those are still some of my fondest memories, cruising everywhere in the Puget Sound with only pap...
