On the other side of this same question, what is your favorite thing about the N62?
Oh so many things,,, we love the salty look, the pedigree of the vessel and the single-minded, purposeful design. In particular, that sleek low profile which differentiates her from most of the other Nordhavn models. She has been quoted by many as “the finest ocean-going luxury yacht ever produced under 70 feet.” We have no argument,,, and INFINITY ∞ is basically our home. I enjoy the Portugese Bridge, and the ABT hydraulic package (Stabilizers & Thrusters) and admire the Lugger engines.
If you ever decide to upgrade from the N62, what is your first choice and why?
Nordhavn 76, hands down, no question.
She'll be a simply outfitted vessel, robust, and unstoppable. Heavy on mechanics, light on electronics. (,,,much like INFINITY ∞). Twin engines and full ABT technology. I'll bring in an interior design-house to meet Jay, and tell them both to 'go nuts'. The Lion's share of the money will be spent on commercial propulsion, large tankage, interior design and communications.
Do you have a favorite destination you've been with INFINITY ∞? What made it special for you?
Can we please re-visit this question again, after we have completed our 6-month South Pacific cruise? We have enjoyed San Diego, Puerto Vallarta, and Hawaii so far. 4 months in SD, 9 months in PV and 17 months? in HI. As you can see, we're not rushing anything.
What is your biggest worry when you are at sea?
Main engine stopping. Scares the hell out of me.
What about when you are at anchor?
I do not have a care in the world at anchor. With a 300 lb anchor and 960 lbs of chain, we have never dragged, even when the anchor is sitting on-top of coral, unset. I never drink alcohol when in transit, at anchor I can really enjoy a beer.
