Up a short flight of stairs from the saloon and galley is the Nordhavn 68’s pilothouse. Its location amidships, where motion is minimal, is another advantage it enjoys. The pilothouse measures a spacious 22 m2 with a generous two meters of headroom. Panelled in varnished teak, it has a settee and table, double pilot berth where the off-watch can be close at hand during night passages or in inclement weather, and numerous cupboards, drawers, lockers and bookcases. Eleven 13 mm thick tempered-glass windows offer a commanding view in all directions. The helm station features Stidd slimline chair, an instrument console 2 meters wide, with plenty of room for instruments, gauges and controls, and a 76 centimeters destroyer wheel.
