Nordhavn and Fubar

If you have read our blogs recently, you may have noticed one type of vessel more than any other. Nordhavn. Since Ocean Marine Nav started business, we have been working closely with Nordhavn owners. In fact, Nordhavn owners make up the majority of the vessels we work with. Why, well word of mouth and relationship go along way. From the early days of Ocean Marine to present day, we continue to work with some original owners who started us from day 1. Milt Baker of M/Y Bluewater (Nordhavn 47) and Bruce Kessler (Spirit of Zopilote) have been great supporters of our work and have been a big reason Ocean Marine Nav has been so successful during the last 15years.

It is unfortunate, we don't get the chance to meet our clients as often as possible, but we have made visits to the Ft. Lauderdale Boat show and hope to again in the next year or two. We've been able to make in person weather briefings for both the Medbound Rally as well as the FUBAR Odyssey in 2007 and hope to be back in San Diego in November 2009 for the next FUBAR Odyssey. It is tough to visit the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show then the next week fly to San Diego for the FUBAR, so we may not be able to attend Ft. Lauderdale if we are invited to do the FUBAR Odyssey in November. If you are looking for a great bunch of people to do a "well organized" 10-15 day cruise with from San Diego to La Paz, the 2009 FUBAR Odyssey is for you.

Nordhavn owners have a presence, but any boat that is willing and more importantly, able to make the run, can do this venture. If you would like more information on the Fubar Odyssey check out the San Diego Yacht Club. For more on Nordhavn vessels and the people behind them, check out www.nordhavn.com Alot of great information on this site including profiles on other Nordhavn around the world including M/Y Egret who we have taken half way around the world during the last 18months. More on M/Y Egret later.

Tomorrow, we will make our last prediction for a white Christmas across the continental US.
