Island Greeter is an active and lightly used original owner Nordhavn 62 in exceptional condition. Two years of planning and construction, getting all of the details right, merged into fifteen years of cruising, primarily during the spring and summer months up in the Pacific Northwest.
Hull number 34 of 39 built, she had the benefit of seeing the selections made by predecessor hulls which dramatically improved the overall package. Wide body saloon for more interior space (with two larger windows, a nicer feel than the original three). Oval vs. round portlights. Custom fiberglass dry stack mast with antennas. Stern bustle which adds waterline offshore and provides a convenient dinghy dock platform with the small generator inside.
Inside is gorgeous. Gloss cherry woodwork, rich and exquisite. The hallway forward connects to the engine room, owner stateroom, guest stateroom and spectacular VIP forward with an inviting island berth. Each stateroom has a convenient head and shower access. The pilothouse has a well-planned forward instrument dash, settee with table and the practical office with stool.
On deck she has a centerline hydraulic crane for launching two dinghies. The upper aft deck is ideal for getting outside, out of the wind and relaxing with a mug of coffee or a glass of wine.
Her machinery is dependable. Lugger main engine with dry stack exhaust, Lugger wing engine, two Northern Lights generators, ABT active fin stabilizers, hydraulic windlass and thrusters. Lifeline AGM batteries.
ACCOMMODATIONS and LAYOUT:
You can get all around the deck with side door hull to starboard and access from the stern bustle. It is extremely easy to dock, you have control stations not only in the cockpit for backing into a slip, but also outboard port and starboard on the Portuguese bridge. And the outside cherry has been practically finished – varnished cherry with a stainless handrail to trim the Portuguese bridge and a varnished cherry cap rail to add elegance to the transom.
Aboard and inside Island Greeter you will find the luxury and craftsmanship that the Ta Shing yard in Taiwan is world famous for. The saloon is spacious, with large outboard windows and gently transition to the galley with the choice of going forward to the staterooms (and engine room access) or up top to the pilothouse.
The accommodations forward of the galley are comprised of the usual large owner stateroom aft with ensuite head and shower and then the port stateroom forward with ensuite head and shower, then a truly impressive and sought after forward VIP stateroom featuring a luxurious island berth.
This 62 has an impressive pilothouse with Stidd helm chair, great access and visibility for all electronics and a comfortable bench behind the helm for guests to gather underway. The bridge also includes a desk with swing out chair.
There is a stainless stem guard on the bow at waterline to help protect the hull from flotsam. The foredeck features two fiberglass deck boxes, two RIB dinghies and a polished stainless steel crane. Dual anchors with appropriate ground tackle are in place. There is a “midship” shore power connection station to starboard.
The cockpit has a home style propane barbeque and seating. The stern bustle includes a Glendinning shore power retriever and inside houses a generator.
Entering the saloon through a wide watertight door you are immediately struck by beauty, elegance and openness, this is an area that both flows and provides numerous comfortable seating arrangements.
There are two Ekornes chairs to port, surrounding an entertainment island which houses a flat screen television on a concealed lift. To starboard in the saloon is a beautiful dinette with the impressive “kneeling” table that can convert from a dining table to a cocktail table.
The interior of Island Greeter is all high gloss varnished cherry which has been carefully selected and beautifully matched. The floors except where specified are traditional varnished cherry and spruce. The cabin doors have the new magnetic catches. All rooms have dimmer switches for the overhead lights.
The huge outboard window forward in the galley complements the saloon windows and accentuates your view from the galley. This galley features a four-burner propane cook top, supplemented with a below counter electric oven. Appliances include a dishwasher microwave and trash compactor plus two refrigerators and a freezer. The granite counter offers an expansive serving area and the light color blends well with the saloon furniture.
Forward of the galley is a hallway which starts outboard to starboard with the electrical panel and finds the owner stateroom immediately to port. This aft location is much more comfortable in a seaway and focuses on a large island berth running fore/aft. Outboard to port is a built-in changing seat and forward to port is a head with shower. There is a full-length dressing mirror. A Sharp Aquos flat screen television is mounted on the forward bulkhead below the classic round deck windows. There is an incredible amount of storage for clothes with drawers and hanging lockers. The owner features a custom HMC inner spring mattress.
This is a convenient and private head with shower and sink. It is finished with varnished cherry and includes mirrored medicine cabinet and lockers.
Gorgeous teak and spruce floors reflect up to the varnished cherry panels of the hallway which runs the full length of the lower-level living quarters. At the beginning of the hallway to starboard is the ships main electrical panel with all of the necessary breakers and displays easily readable and logically labeled. This is convenient being right across from the owner stateroom and also close to the engine room which is accessed from the same area. There is a pantry locker to starboard and concealed laundry appliances.
GUEST STATEROOM Port
The port stateroom has a double bunk bed running along the hull. There is storage and easy access to the en-suite head and shower.
VIP STATEROOM Forward
This is a stateroom that is the equal of the owner cabin. In fact, at anchor, this is likely the preferred accommodations due to the light and air flow. Very few Nordhavn 62s created an island berth in the forward stateroom. The ensuite head and shower make for a comfortable and private retreat.
VIP HEAD forward
The forward head and shower is extremely convenient for the VIP’s occupying this space. This head is light, airy and easy to keep fresh.
The aft pilothouse on the Nordhavn 62 is one of this vessels’ most attractive features. Incredible 360-degree visibility gives you a view perspective unequalled on other trawlers. This space is planned for operational business, and the gorgeous cherry joinery blends in with the luxurious feel of the living areas below. The display mounting surface areas are varnished cherry (not the charcoal laminate so commonly found) which are wonderfully outfitted marine electronics featuring large screen displays and redundant marine navigation. A very nice touch is the cherry console panels in the overhead. Aft of the helm is a nice bench seat area with varnished table and a watch berth aft atop a deep freezer. Starboard aft is an office area with desk surface and swing out chair with seat back. On top is the contemporary design fiberglass dry stack exhaust upgraded.
PILOT HOUSE DESK
One of the great places to relax on this 62 is up in the pilothouse. When you are off watch, but want to stay near the action you will appreciate the built in desk with swing out chair which can be set up as an underway office complete with file drawers
UPPER AFT DECK
Leaving the wheelhouse and heading aft you will find the “back patio” which has a fiberglass table and built in seating. The area is covered with a stainless Bimini top and is a wonderful place to enjoy the view especially at anchor. Easy access to the anchor flopper stopper poles and stainless flopper plates to settle the boat when anchored.
PORTUGUESE BRIDGE DECK
Forward of the wheelhouse is a protected well where you can safely marvel at the sweeping ocean views. There are docking stations outboard port and starboard and a huge storage locker just forward of the pilothouse windows.
You can reach the foredeck from the center access provided in the Portuguese bridge. Prominently positioned on centerline is polished stainless steel crane dividing the two tenders. A hydraulic windlass for the primary anchor to starboard and electric for secondary are on the bow. There are also two large dock boxes for storage. There is a shore power collection to starboard. The cap rail has been painted over with gray Awlgrip for ease of maintenance.
Entering the cockpit you have a fiberglass seating area and table to port. Centered and forward is an electric warping winch for stern anchoring assistance. The cockpit area also boasts a built in sink, propane barbeque, icemaker and storage cabinets. There is an aft docking control station, located outboard to starboard atop the console. The lazarette beneath houses air conditioning compressors, the emergency tiller and has plenty of room to stow gear.
The stern bustle built in aft of the cockpit provides a large swim platform and dinghy landing deck. The 50 amp shore power utilizes a built in electric cord spooler. The voluminous bustle chamber adds great storage for extra gear. The bustle also houses the hydraulic stern thruster.
The engine room is a long, broad area with a seating area to starboard where you can view the machinery and keep in touch with the pulse of your ship. The Lugger L1276A, 12.5-liter electronic engine sits beautifully on center with the shrouded exhaust traveling aft before turning up to the exhaust stack. On the starboard side aft is the Lugger wing engine and hydraulic alternator. The fuel manifolds are forward to starboard for easy access and manipulation. On the port side forward is the fresh water system, followed aft by both generators. All the way aft to port is the upgraded hydraulic steering system and watermaker. A built-in sea chest delivers sea water to the various engines and pumps that require cooling. This is an engine room that is easy to manage, and you are low and centered while underway.
