Designed by Canadian Stan Huntingford, this is a heavily constructed ocean-going cruising yacht.
Stan Huntingford is famous for designing well-found cruising yachts including the Slocum 43 and Formosa 42.
This centre cockpit cutter-rigged ketch attracts many admirers with her classic lines and is now seriously for sale after much work (and expense) over the past 5 years including new stainless rigging, renovating teak decks, new stern seal, AC rewire, new nav equipment, etc. etc. etc.
Delivery would also be considered.
I am open to offers including part exchange for car and/or boats and or cash. I will be sad to see her go so would also consider a 50% part ownership - shared running costs for 50% annual use.
Would consider relocating yacht to Mediterranean area.
There is no doubt that this is a lot of boat for very little money.
Priced for a quick sale.
