The Tropical Blend is a Nordhavn 43 motor yacht. It’s hull number one of the N43 model, built in 2004. We have extensively modified it to prepare for our long voyage.
We purchased Tropical Blend (formerly Island Magic) in April of 2013. While the boat was in very good condition, it needed some modifications to be our full time cruising home. In addition, we wanted to make it ideal for us, requiring extensive upgrades. This section illustrates the changes we made prior to starting our voyage.
