Some boat owners choose a new name for their vessel every time they upsize. Others stick with one name and just numeral up. The Van Dam Nordia Shipyard has announced the completion of the 80' Nordia Traditional Ketch, Ophira V which is the third yacht that they have built for the same owner. The Ophira V is a joint effort by the owner's family and is designed to be both a racer and a family cruiser. The yacht includes details such as an integrated treadmill in the starboard guest cabin floor with its own DVD system, an Arcam/Linn onboard entertainment system with separate IPod stations in every guestroom, a fully acclimatised wine cellar, wireless satellite internet and retractable LCD screens.
If you are interested in the old Ophira, the Ophira IV, a 62' Nordia World Cruising Sloop the family bought in 1992, is currently for sale.
