Built in Taiwan for the American market, this is a long keel sailing yacht with very solid construction.
Extensive teak interior (beautiful Burmese teak) – final fit out was in the UK – she has a Perkins 4236 marine engine and a Hydrovane wind steering system.  A comprehensive refit was carried out in Turkey in 2006, this included new teak decks, full re-paint, sails and Harken mast tracks.
This boat has taken the owners some 25,000 miles in safety and comfort – she can do this again!
We will have many more pictures in high resolution – please request a copy.
Please view the 360 degree panoramic tour on the web site also.
