The fact that she was hull number one didn't scare him. In (act, it made him more confident. It s true when they say that a Nordhavn only gels better with age, muses Patrick. In fact, at the time of purchase, all Frog Kiss needed was a bit of TLC, and aside from a new starter on the main engine (which has aiuassed nearly 4,700 hours), "good preventative maintenance has kept her totally trouble-free."

Not only has her performance withstood the test of time, Patrick feels her design has held up against the best of the new models in her class. "Nordhavn was so far ahead of their time when the 46 was bom that competitors are still struggling to catch up with her. All systems are well designed...and the basic blueprint is flawless. TWenty years later and she is just like new"
