2017 Nordhavn 96

96 ft

In 2017, Pacific Asian Enterprises (PAE) expanded their Nordhavn line with the
addition of the Nordhavn 96. Being well received by the exploration yacht
community, the Nordhavn 96 won the 2017 International Yacht and Aviation
Award. Lacey Kay was the third in this line, just after the launching
of Vivierae II. This new design bridged the gap between the large cruising
exploration yacht and super-yacht categories. She was designed for the yachting
enthusiast who seeks the super-yacht comfort and style in a boat that is still
able to be managed with no or minimal crew, and travel big open oceans.

The 96 series is based on the hull of the very successful Nordhavn 86, while
incorporating a larger cockpit, lazarette, and better crew space below deck. The
greater volume is also felt on the main deck level, in the dining and galley
areas, and on the pilothouse deck with a large upper master stateroom. The
greater length also allows for a more spacious fly bridge with hot tub.

Lacey Kay was built by her current owner, making frequent trips to the yard
during the build process. He opted for the additional fuel tanks, giving her an
aggregate capacity of 9,575 gallons. With her increased waterline hull length,
her fuel burn was actually slightly reduced from the 86. At her most efficient
cruise speed of 9 knots, she burns about 10 gallons per hour per side, plus 5
gallons for the house generator, giving her an approximate 4,000 NM range; well
enough for a Pacific crossing. According to Jeff Leishman, PAE’s Chief of
Design, extending her hull length has allowed Nordhavn to enhance the
performance of, and increase stability and comfort in this well-proven hull
