Nabila is a Harvey Halvorsen designed 40 Sports Flybridge Motor Cruiser built to the excellent standard we have all come to expect from the Halvorsen shipyards. She was completed and launched in 1965.
Using Oregon timber, her hull is double diagonally planked, both glued and screwed providing both strength and lightweight construction for her time. Her topsides are beautifully finished varnished timber and her decks are finished in teak.
She is powered by twin Cummins V8 N 300M (300 Hp) naturally aspirated fresh water cooled diesel engines which will push her along at up to 25 Knots if you so desire. Professionally restored and since regularly maintained, they have only 850 hours since rebuild. We are advised there are loads of spare parts available from Freytus in Helensburg NSW
Sleeping 4 in two cabins, two persons in the double forepeak cabin and two in bunks in the mid ships starboard cabin which is opposite the head and shower with stainless steel sink and electric toilet.
Moving up the stairs into the saloon you feel the open and airy space which is enhanced by full 360 degrees windows giving full vision to the outside letting in abundant light and making navigation a breeze. The main helm station is port forward and opposite is the simple but practical galley area boasting a Smev 2 burner gas hob with oven / grill along side the stainless steel sink with ample bench space for food preparation. The seating along the starboard side of the saloon could easily convert to another bunk should you need it. There are two tub chairs and a coffee table which can be moved around to suit your mood.
Moving aft and flowing seamlessly onto the back teak deck gives you the ability to entertain both in or out with ease, and enhances the whole area as one space. There is a beautiful mobile timber dining table that will seat 6 which fits nicely in either space , weather depending.
From the ladder on the back deck, you are up to the flybridge and you have the wind in your hair and a lovely space to navigate to your favorite destination with unimpeded 360 degree views.
Nabila has a full set of boat covers that cover all of the varnished surfaces of the boat both internal and external and aft teak deck, reducing the maintenance schedule requirements and costs.
The current owners of Nabila have spent considerable time and money employing the right people to bring her up to the standards you would expect of a vessel of this age and she presents beautifully. Given the extensive work which has already been completed, general and regular maintenance should keep her looking pristine and keep her in a condition that any Halvorsen owner would be proud of. Remember, when you own a Classic Halvorsen Motor Yacht, you are simply the Custodian for the next Halvorsen timber boat enthusiast.
