Broker's Comments

Designed by the renowned award winning yacht designer Horst E. Glacer and built to exacting standards by Sandmeier, Germany, this 63 foot Bluewater cruiser could take you where others cannot go!

She is a luxury custom built Aluminium Pilot House, cutter rigged Bluewater centre board Ketch powered by twin Volvo Penta TMD 31 engines producing 200 horsepower in total.

Originally built in 1984, she was designed and built for circumnavigating the world. She has a V-shaped hull with hydraulic centre board and an elevated spacious pilothouse giving a good panoramic view whilst sailing.

In 2002/2003 there was an extensive refit. Another serious refit in 2013 and in 2015 the yacht was given a comprehensive overhaul.

Fully equipped for cruising with an extensive list of equipment all in good working order.

3 cabins, 6 berths, 2 heads and a spacious galley in a classic mahogany interior sporting a very large corner settee in blue.

Photographs do not do this yacht justice as she must to be seen to be fully appreciated.
