Full Details


PATIENCE is a 1995 Nordlund 96’ motor yacht. She has been under the ownership of only 2 couples since new. In 2002 she received a major refit at Rybovich Spencer including reconfiguring the layout and changing interior wood. A major mechanical refit was performed in 2005 including replacement of the engines with 1,550 hp Caterpillar C-30s and generators with 33 kw Northern Lights, among other things. Recent improvements beginning in 2018 include a complete galley refit, new hardtop, new headliners, LED lighting throughout, new soft goods, and much more. A full-beam owner's stateroom with separate his-and-her heads are part of the 4-stateroom layout and a day head is found on the main deck. In addition, the crew quarters have a full head. Casually elegant décor and broad spaces are excellent for entertaining and very comfortable for extended stays aboard. A Garmin electronics suite and Yacht Controller make short-handed operation easy, and the mechanical equipment is in excellent condition.
