North Wind 47 ‘Sapphire’ (1989)
Overview

The North Wind 47 is a powerful cruising yacht, strongly constructed on classic lines. The interior is luxuriously finished with a comfortable owners aft cabin. The North Wind 47 is sloop rigged with furling genoa and furling main sail, so the yacht may be handled with a small crew. The 90 horsepower diesel gives the yacht good speed when under power.

Cruising World reviewed the North Wind 47 and had this to say:

“She’s a solidly built vessel, capable of sailing offshore,” said CW technical editor and Boat of the Year judge Ralph Naranjo of the Northwind 50 after inspecting her at rest and under sail.

“Structurally, she’s a very traditional FRP boat. The hull/deck joint is mechanically fastened, then glassed, and the rudder structure is stainless steel. And there’s a great welder in the yard.”

The 50 is the most recent model to come to the States from the Barcelona-based North Wind yard, whose line of semi-custom deck-saloon cruisers runs from 43 feet to 68 feet. Their Sparkman & Stephens-designed 43 won CW’s 2001 award for Best Deck-Saloon Cruiser.

While North Wind’s building practices are fairly low-tech—the hulls and decks are hand-laid cored fiberglass, not resin-infused exotics—they’re implemented by a team of artisans who pay close attention to the details.

The Northwind’s interior layout, furnished in warm Burmese teak, offers three private cabins, each with a double berth. And while the main saloon gets plenty of light thanks to the windows of 8-millimeter polycarbonate (like Lexan), the forward cabins are on the dark side.
