This professionally built, round bilge, corten steel ketch is a true gem ready to take you on a thrilling overseas voyage. With a circumnavigation under its belt, this cutter-rigged ketch is equipped with everything you need to circumnavigate safely once again. It has just had a new 24-volt bow thruster motor installed for enhanced maneuverability. The yacht is powered by a well-maintained 120 HP Perkins diesel engine, propelling it at a comfortable 8 knots with a fuel consumption of 8 liters per hour, thanks to its clean bottom.

The ketch sails gracefully at 8 knots even in light breezes. It comes with a range of amenities including a Highfield dinghy on davits with an outboard motor, solar panels, a ham radio, and LED lights. The aft cabin boasts an ensuite, while the yacht features multiple showers, hot water, a microwave, a pressurized water system, and a hooker dive system with a hose and mouthpiece.

The helm station is equipped with a Simrad Class B AIS, chart plotters, and two VHF radios. A comprehensive inventory of safety equipment is included, meeting survey standards.

Recently, the yacht underwent an insurance survey with a current gas certification certificate. It has been meticulously maintained and cared for. The insurance survey report confirms its seaworthiness. The exterior hull and decks are made of steel, with the hull being a round bilge design.
