Nordhavn 68 2020 $2,995,000 usd for sale

This Nordhavn 68 is a 2020 model and is spec’d for all environments with two generators, two water makers, diesel heat, multi-frequency battery chargers, 2,500 gallons of fuel, and legendary Nordhavn construction detail.

The Nordhavn 68 picks up where her iconic smaller sister, the Nordhavn 62, left off: a salty, seaworthy, aft-pilothouse yacht capable of offering extreme comfort, luxury and of course, capability. But the N68 incorporates a modern feel and better space planning, and perfectly fills the size gap that exists between the aft pilothouse N63 and the larger Nordhavn 76 in the current Nordhavn line-up.

“There are those who have great affection for the aft pilothouse boat and the 68 fits perfect among the 62, 63 and 76,” says PAE President Dan Streech.

The distinct styling of the 62 has been a Nordhavn hallmark for nearly twenty years, and the 68 captures the essence of this vessel yet it incorporates the latest thinking in design, systems and technology and packages it all into a beamier, heartier hull. The interior is stunning with modern styling and beautiful teak joiner work. And despite the size advantage, this vessel is just as easily managed by a cruising couple without need for captain and crew.

This NORDHAVN 68 (Gitana II) is located in Florida, please contact us at 514-521-1221 for all details about his trawler NORDHAVN 68, our office is locate din great Montreal area.

Main Engine (1320 hrs.): John Deere Model 6090: Main propulsion is supplied by a John Deere Model 6090 w/ M3 rating of 325HP @ 2,200 rpm, coupled to a ZF #ZFW325, 3.958:1 reduction transmission, in turn coupled to a 3″ Aquamet 22 drive shaft on which is mounted a 5-blade, bronze propeller. This transmission reduction allows the propeller to turn slowly, greatly reducing noise and vibration. The engine is keel-cooled, with dry exhaust with an in-line muffler, a signature design element of most Nordhavns, eliminating the need for a raw water through-hull and raw water pump, thereby reducing the risk of a cooling pump failure at sea. A Spurs Marine line cutter is installed on the main shaft, just forward of the propeller.

Wing Engine (97 hrs.): John Deere 4045 TFM 85 HE: Auxiliary propulsion is supplied by a John Deere 4045 TFM 85 HE “wing engine” rated 100 hp @ 2400 rpm, with high-output heat exchanger cooling and a ZF 631V 2.477:1 ratio “V-Drive” transmission with Morse control cables. The propeller is a folding Gori 3-blade (24″ diameter x 19″ pitch). The shaft is a 1.5″ diameter of Aquamet material. The shaft is supported by a bronze strut bonded into the hull. There is a hydraulic pump mounted on a PTO to create full power from the hydraulic system for thruster, windlass, anchor wash and emergency bilge pump. Having the PTO also ensures that the wing engine is run on a regular basis.

Oil Change System – Plumbed to main engine, wing engine and both generators.

Hydraulic Systems: ABT-TRAC: Gitana II is equipped with ABT-TRAC’S integrated hydraulics system that is powered by quiet, high efficiency hydraulic piston pumps separately driven by the main engine, the wing engine, or the PTO (Power Take Off) pump on the 20 kW generator. These pumps support various systems:

  • Anchor Wash: Pacer Pump, located in forward equipment area, with a 180 gal/min. capacity, plumbed to a fixed nozzle below anchor rollers.
  • Bow and Stern Thrusters: ABT-TRAC twin, counter-rotating propellers, are installed in both the bow and the stern.
  • Emergency Bilge Pump: Pacer Pump, located in engine room, with a 180 gal/min. capacity.
  • Stabilizers at Sea: Gitana II is outfitted with upgraded ABT-TRAC digital active fin stabilizers with digital control panel in the wheelhouse.
  • Stabilizers at Rest: the STAR (Stabilization At Rest) system significantly reduces vessel roll while anchored or on a mooring. STAR’s unique 3-term algorithm measures roll and controls the stabilizing fins’ movement to generate a smooth counter-acting energy pulse that significantly dampens roll. At anchor, the STAR system is powered by the PTO pump on the 20 kW generator.
  • Windlass: Upgraded Maxwell hydraulic windlass VW4000 with band brake and chain counter installed in the pilothouse. Windlass controls are installed at each control station.



While Gitana II is spec’d as 230V/50Hz boat, she is equipped for world cruising. Victron TG 24/100-amp battery chargers, that accept a range of voltages from 90-265, and frequencies from 45-65hz, keep the batteries charged, while dual Victron Quattro inverters handle all house electrical loads. All electrical outlets by VIMAR are universal to accept a worldwide variety of plugs and USB connections and are installed throughout the vessel.

Batteries: Six (6) Lithionics batteries 24V 300AH each in 3 banks with NeverDie BMS (Battery Management System). Main engine starting: 2 x 4D (12v, 210 amp-hrs each).

Communications: 1 x group size 31 (12v, 105-amp hours). All starting batteries are AGM, Lifeline brand.


  • Generator #1: (866 hrs.) Northern Lights 20 kW at 50Hz with Auto-Start, located inside a sound shield in the engine room. 24v starter with two “Group 31” batteries.         The exhaust includes a Centek water lift muffler and Gen-Sep exhaust system, eliminating the possibility of being “that guy” in the anchorage. Even a passing kayaker would likely not know your generator is running.
  • Generator #2: (401 hours)Northern Lights 16 kW at 50Hz mounted in a sound shield in the lazarette, with a Gen-Sep exhaust system as above. It also has a 24-volt starting system with two “Group 31” batteries. This generator is fitted with Auto-Start as well.

The system is run on a separate dedicated Intel NUC PC and displays results on one of the color touch screens in the pilothouse. Accurate levels of fuel tanks, fresh water and wastewater are easily displayed. Engine performance details, including temperatures, pressures, and fuel efficiency are shown. Various pressure, temperature, and electrical sensors are installed to monitor most aspects of the vessel. Data points outside programmed parameters result in audible and visual alarms.
