The tri-deck Nordhavn 80 includes a large swim platform and two tenders, one located on the foredeck aft, and other bridge deck aft. Onboard, Vripack’s interiors aim to reflect ‘comfort, safety and luxury’ through a Scandinavian chic design with natural materials such as bare wood and neutral tones throughout “to make all those on board feel at home at sea.”
