The natural progression of most boat owners is bigger and often a longer range. Our discussions of late have materialized into seriously looking at a new build or a purchase of a ~80′ long range displacement motor yacht, and then sail her around the globe. Months of research and trips to various builders have resulted in my recommendation of two options. Either an off the shelf Nordhavn, or a fully custom build at Northern Marine.
Northern Marine has my vote for a new build at this point because they are open to my changes to the superstructure. The people there are easy to work with and the build is a solid US quality.
Here is a short video of an older Northern Marine 80 Tri-Deck north of Seattle that I took on a short sea trial.
