The voyage, scheduled to commence April 30, is bound to be another exciting one for Nordhavn fans to follow, but despite the many similarities there are major differences between the two deliveries. Most evident is the “seatrial” tone the delivery of N120#1 superyacht Aurora took on. The first hull of Nordhavn’s new queenship had performed admirably in ocean maneuvers during certification tests and was expected to complete the approximate 6,000-nm trip from China to Vancouver, BC, without problem (which, in fact, proved to be the result). Indeed, the 120 delivery was all business with the vessel’s owners on board tolearn and experience their new yacht, saving sight-seeing ports of call for future trips.

But now, with this being hull number #10 of the N86 design, the designers, engineers and owners are able to go into the trip with a more tangible confidence bolstered by the sort of proven track record this model provides. (In fact, on Thursday afternoon, the yacht underwent sea trials to test the MTU engines, which performed beautifully, notes Trever Smith.) And so, Koonoona yacht’s owners will fly into Malaysia and meet the boat in Kuala Terrengganu where they will enjoy the final leg to Singapore, taking part in a scheduled fishing expedition while anchored off Tiomen Island.

Upon arrival to Singapore, the boat will be officially handed over to her owners at the famed Raffles Marina, where countless Nordhavns have visited – it was a favorite layover spot of the crews onboard the Around The World Nordhavn 40 back in 2000. From there, Koonoona yacht will eventually be based in Indonesia, making her the first Indonesian-based Nordhavn.

The 1,850-nm trip is nowhere near the estimated 6,000-nm journey faced by Aurora superyacht and her crew, but it will be nonetheless epic and inspiring. A special website section dedicated to real time video, blogs, tracking and images will keep you on top of everything happening on board luxury yacht Koonoona. Nodhavn hope you will join them as their virtual crew on another exciting Nordhavn journey.
