Partida defines the classic Nordhavn 46 that has become a true modern day trawler legend. She is hull 25 (out of 82) and has been continually cruised and optimized by a series of active owners. Partida is a proven long-range cruiser having crossed the Pacific twice – to New Zealand and then back to California.
Partida is configured with the “offshore” layout design – Plan A – featuring the owner stateroom aft. The amidships owner arrangement is more comfortable for sleeping underway. It is also conveniently accessed from the saloon level via a step-down stair well. The guest stateroom forward, features a double berth to port with twin bunks to starboard. There are two heads with showers. The interior has a warm teak wood finish (gloss varnish highlights on most of the trim) offset with white laminate – a beautiful balance.
Partida was originally delivered to Japan and then resold and repositioned to the US west coast. After her US arrival she immediately received a series of major upgrades including the installation of active fin stabilizers. The second owners primarily cruised her in Mexico and the third owners sailed across the Pacific to New Zealand and back twice. They later sold her and purchased a Nordhavn 57. The current owners have enjoyed traveling between California and Mexico, exploring remote coves and getting away for more local adventures whenever they pleased.
Partida has been lovingly cared for and remains one of the most beautifully maintained trawler yachts we have had the privilege to represent. If you are looking for a Nordhavn 46, please get in touch, we have a lot to discuss.
ACCOMMODATIONS & LAYOUT
Entering the saloon through the cockpit sliding door you arrive in a very welcoming entry. A custom dinette settee is to port for meals, and two comfortable chairs with an ottoman and teak stand are aligned on the starboard side for reading and relaxing. The galley counter offsets the cooking area from the saloon.
The galley makes a wonderful working kitchen underway with its U-shaped layout. Steps at the starboard forward end of the saloon lead up to the pilothouse, and there is a separate set of steps just off the galley that leads directly down to the owner stateroom.
The pilothouse is set up for extended sea travel and includes an elaborate custom configured instrument dash console which houses a comprehensive selection of electronics. A unique raised floor storage locker was built into the sole behind the helm and stores a huge assortment of paper navigational charts, while also raising your sightlines when standing watch. Just behind is a raised bench settee with table which offers a comfortable gathering place while underway. A pilot berth is above and aft of the settee backrest.
Going down the steps from the galley to the owner stateroom, you have a large island berth athwartships to port, with the ensuite head and shower to starboard. This room has an attractive balance of varnished teak and white laminate, creating an open and inviting room. There are opening port lights outboard and plenty of storage in lockers, drawers and shelves. A top-load holding plate freezer doubles as a vanity with a mirror on the aft bulkhead by the galley steps.
The forward guest stateroom is designed to sleep up to four. There is also a separate head and shower forward. You can access the chain locker from the forward head.
You enter the engine room from the owner stateroom shower on the starboard side, or through floor hatches in the main saloon. This incredibly efficient machinery space includes the main engine with convenient access. The generator is to starboard and wing engine to port. The active fin stabilizer hydraulics and FCI Aquamiser marine water maker are also installed here. Fuel tanks, fuel lines, manifold valves and plumbing are neatly routed and labeled for simple, efficient operation.
On deck, there is a hull side boarding door to starboard and a built-in swim platform aft with a centerline access ladder over the transom. The cockpit area can be enclosed in clear, see-through Isinglass making the aft deck area a relaxing refuge out of the weather. To go forward, you transition along the forward starboard side deck (covered overhead) with steps up to the Portuguese bridge. An uncluttered foredeck makes anchoring easy. The boat deck is accessed from the port side of the pilothouse and the tender is managed by a crane.
The main saloon is beautifully done in teak and includes classic teak and holly soles. To starboard are two comfortable chairs with a centered cabinet for resting drinks and storage.
To port is an L-shaped wrap around settee with storage underneath, including some custom drawers to provide easy access to provisions without having to remove the seat bottom cushions. The teak Pompanette dinette is a high/low, dining/coffee table folding leaf teak design that is elegant and practical, as it can be easily moved to accommodate six people. Custom shade blinds provide privacy when in port.
The saloon transitions into the galley. There are two sets of steps forward, one up to the pilothouse, and the other down to the owner stateroom.
The galley adjoins the saloon and allows for a convenient relationship between preparing and serving meals. There is a stand-up refrigerator freezer inboard. There are many storage lockers and drawers (and a clever pass-through hatch that allows food and drink transfer to the crew in the pilothouse). Outboard is a Force 10 four burner propane stove with a convection microwave above. The forward counter includes a large undermount stainless basin sink that has a manual foot operated pump as a backup for fresh water. A complete set of plates, mugs, and tableware fills the lockers and drawers. A summary of galley appliances and gear includes:
OWNER STATEROOM – AFT
Partida was built for long-range travel and she has successfully completed ocean crossing passages. The large athwartships island berth is extremely comfortable for sleeping and is easy to make. There is a large amount of storage in lockers and drawers throughout the stateroom.
GUEST STATEROOM – FORWARD
The guest stateroom, located forward, is finished with varnished teak throughout to provide a warm and spacious atmosphere. It features a wide double bed to port and two individual over and under berths to starboard. The soles are teak and holly. Hanging lockers, bookshelves and drawers are provided for storage. Port lights and an overhead hatch provide plenty of ventilation.
The pilothouse is well suited for ocean travel. The forward console includes access and close reach to the nav/com electronics. A bench seat with table aft provides comfortable seating for crew who can keep track of the proceedings while underway. A pilot berth is up and aft of the settee and has a slide out extension to make it wider. There is a Captain’s chair helm seat that can be folded forward.
In addition to the innovative floor chart locker, the forward stairs were designed with a removable floor cover. While on long passages, the owners prefer to leave this floor in place to provide additional room for moving around, and since they prefer to travel as a couple, the forward staircase isn’t necessary for access.
This is a beautiful control zone with cork countertops, many windows and white overhead. When new electronics were installed, the forward dash was modified to create more space. The helm is a stainless steel destroyer wheel.
ELECTRONICS and NAVIGATION – PILOTHOUSE EQUIPMENT
COCKPIT and SWIM PLATFORM
The aft deck cockpit of Partida covers the lazarette area (steering) and has two boarding entries – starboard and port. There is a vertical ladder mounted forward to port that provides access through an opening hatch to the boat deck. There is also a stainless and polyethylene planked swim platform aft that is wonderful for SCUBA diving and makes a great landing dock when you arrive by dinghy.
In addition to convenient access to the steering gear, there is convenient storage for extra gear. This machinery space is well organized for maximum utility and like so much of the boat looks brand new it is so clean.
BOAT DECK, PILOTHOUSE and SPARS
The boat deck houses the ship’s tender which is a 10’ AB RIB with Honda 20 HP outboard mounted on cradle chocks with securing tie downs. The Marquipt crane makes launching and retrieval much easier than the typical boom winch set up on most 46’s. The boat deck can also be accessed aft from the cockpit ladder and hatch. The mast has a tremendous assortment of nav/com antennas and two flopper stopper poles attached.
