This is an opportunity to obtain an exceptionally well-built World Cruiser that is very suitable for a comfortable, safe family or charter sailing.
Considered one of New Zealand’s finest icon yachts it is superbly finished featuring the finest components from leading marine equipment suppliers. Additionally, the vessel has benefited from a professional ‘no cost spared’ maintenance program to maintain her in pristine condition.
From the Huisman/Rondal rig and extensive hydraulics, to her powerful standing rigging this is truly a no compromise, high performance vessel. The finish is flawless, both on deck and below and requires minimal cosmetic maintenance due to her practical exterior finish. The full 6.5 ft headroom interior is attractively finished with a well-designed layout offering an easy flow throughout the yacht. There is a functional fully equipped Galley with lots of storage. She has completed a circumnavigation and other voyages including Patagonia and Antarctica. The large capacity tankage will enable transatlantic range under power. This much-admired boat has only had 2 owners since launched. It is in sail away condition and also includes an extensive inventory of spares. With a recent big price reduction, the owner is ready to sell and all serious offers considered.
