Nordhavn Owners Group


Bringing together Nordhavn owners from all corners of the Seven Seas

With over 800 members, this group is for owners of Nordhavn yachts, and we believe that 90-95% of the world's Nordhavn owners are members. Our membership includes Nordhavn owners, captains, former owners, and other members of the Nordhavn family including more than a dozen distinguished Expert Members.  

Nordhavn Owners Group is a free, non-commercial forum where owners, new and old, can connect with other owners and learn more about their own Nordhavns. NOG’s focus is serving as a members’ clearinghouse for ideas, opinions, advice, counsel, and personal experiences, and for exchanging information involving all things Nordhavn, including crossing oceans, coastal cruising, seamanship, anchoring and ground tackle, navigation, boatkeeping, electronics, electrical systems, engines, transmissions, generators, other equipment, maintenance, repairs, upgrades, and improvements, living aboard, weather, and other subjects of particular interest to those of us who own and cruise aboard  Nordhavn yachts.


If you're looking for answers or help in solving a problem, you'll find it easy to use this group to connect with other owners and have your questions answered.  When posting a question, be specific--and please be sure to include your Nordhavn's model and hull number, homeport or geographical location, and anything else pertinent to your questions including pictures as needed.  More detail will bring you better answers!  


Another useful resource is NOG's Files and Photos archives, many of which were moved over from the old NOG on Yahoo! and are easily searchable using's Search feature.   

The principle we use in moderating NOG is “What's best for Nordhavn owners?” and we ask that every member keep that question in mind. If you believe something you propose to post is of interest to or to the benefit of Nordhavn owners, post it. If not, don't.


One great new benefit (Jan 2020) is free access for NOG members to the authoritative American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) website, including all its highly regarded ABYC Standards and Technical Reports.  More information on that here.


If you own a Nordhavn and are not a member, and you'd like to join, please send an email to  Important: be sure to include your name, your Nordhavn’s name, model and hull number, and homeport or current cruising area.  Also, for verification, please include the name and email for the seller of the boat or the broker who handled the sale on your behalf.


If you know a Nordhavn owner who is not a member of this group, please let our moderator team know so we can extend an invitation to join. 


NOG is NOT open to people considering a Nordhavn or who aspire to own one. The Nordhavn Dreamers Group, operated by Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc., was created especially for such people:
