Migration is one of the most actively cruised Nordhavns ever built. After launching and commissioning in Florida in 2010, she has lived for blue water adventure. Her original owners are a very experienced offshore power boating couple who previously cruised a Hatteras 58 LRC and longed for a platform that would extend their cruising range and season.
Hull number 19 in the series allowed for a great collection of ideas and improvements from the earlier builds to be incorporated. The couple spent time with other Nordhavn 68 owners and cruised in excess of 2,000 NM on sister ships to consolidate their ideas. The result was a very detailed order that had many milestone improvements, many of which were integrated into later new builds.
For great assistance in getting the equipment selections right and confirming the correctness and quality of the build, Steve D’Antonio was hired due to his technical expertise. Steve has been involved in the legacy of Migration from the days of signing a contract, through construction in to Taiwan, during commissioning in Florida and as an invited aboard guest many times.
Migration has been beautifully maintained and there are detailed maintenance logs that account for all of the service history performed. An opportunity arose to order a brand new Nordhavn 68 (which is not surprisingly very similar to Migration) and the joy of building a new sister ship emboldened with their cruising experience and live aboard knowledge have enabled this cruise thirsty couple to soon realize a well-conceived plan and take the helm of their next Nordhavn 68 also to be named, Migration. (For this reason, the name Migration is reserved, and the name board affixed will be removed.
Migration has truly migrated – traveling north, south, east and west to explore. She now awaits her new owners while lying in Florida. Viewings are scheduled by appointment and we invite you to inquire with your questions and look forward to getting you aboard to see in person what an amazing Nordhavn 68 looks like.
