....."Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you did not do, than by the ones that you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore! Dream! Discover!"

April 1, 2007 - Welcome to the website for the construction, commissioning and subsequent travels of our new Nordhavn 55, "ALWAYS FRIDAY"!

The boat arrived in Dana Point in late April and Nordhavn has exceeded our expectations! Dave Harlow, the NH project manager, inspected the boat and found it to be "exactly as ordered"! Jim Hart of Definitive Concepts, who is doing the audiovisual installation on the boat, was onboard and described it as "awesome"! Jim is an electrical engineer and a perfectionist. If he says it is awesome, it is just that! Jeff Merril, our NH sales representative, took his initial tour of the boat to record his usual punch list of needed corrective measures, and left with an empty list ! A first for him, and a real credit to the factory!

The commissioning process is underway in earnest, and we spend time onboard each day. New pictures will be added as progress is noted. We plan frequent additions and updates to this site as we progress northward to Alaska, and ultimately home through the Panama Canal in the Fall of this year.

Just click on "What's New" , "Where Are They Now?", "Present Boat Location" &/or new "Picture Gallery" links above for the most recent entries.

Stay tuned - it will be fun!!
