Manufacturer Provided Description

The Portuguese bridge on the Nordhavn 40 provides the watchstander a safe exterior conning area but also provides a first line of defense for heavy water that might come over the bow. The solid coaming structure tends to deflect boarding water upward and away from the back sloping wheelhouse windows. Within the well-protected wheelhouse, abundant space is provided for a complete selection of electronics. The rake of the forward wheelhouse windows also reduces interior heat and eliminates glare from primary instrumentation. Additionally, this design provides added space above the line of sight for smaller yet important instrumentation. A full-size folding chart table is located on the port side near the pilothouse door and adequate chart storage is provided below. A folding helm seat is convenient for hand steering and folds out of the way for autopilot operation and standup maneuvering during docking. The most comfortable seating for watchstanding is aft at the settee, which allows easy visibility of instrumentation and an unobstructed exterior view. A full-length watch berth, located aft of the settee, makes watchstanding easy with another person sleeping within arm's reach. Additionally, the settee will serve as another berth, allowing double occupancy of the wheelhouse. The wheelhouse location allows for easier docking than a flybridge might. The helmsman is within easy reach of the port and starboard amidships cleats and can play an active role in line handling during docking. Double access to the boat deck is provided on the port and starboard sides. Access to the foredeck is provided through the Portuguese bridge door where two large integral deck lockers for storage are found. A low-profile cabin house provides headroom forward and two dorade vents for ventilation comfort belowdecks. Back into the wheelhouse and aft through the saloon, the cockpit offers more lounging space than the 46. There's comfortable seating - port and starboard - and easy swimming or tender access through the transom door onto an integral swim step, which stays dry even at full cruising speed. For doc
