Denis Ganley was a leading yacht designer in New Zealand who specialised in steel yacht design aimed at both the amateur and professional builder. The reason for designing mostly in steel is that many of these designs were intended for offshore and serious coastal cruising and so they provide the ultimate in strength and safety. There are over 1,000 of these designs either sailing or under construction around the world.

Denis Ganley received many accolades during his 35 year career, inlcuding winning the 1986 Steel Award for best Consumer product with the Pacemaker 40 design (a first for these awards). Many of his designs have made remarkable passages offshore and have successfully competed in various regattas and other events.

2x antifoul
Then repainted the topside ( red ) 2 pack paint

The accomodation below is comfortable and practical.
The interior has a rustic feel and is well laid out. There is a good sized aft-cabin with a large heads and shower running to starboard. On the portside of the companion way you will find the galley which is well equipped and has lots of storage too. The nav station is incorporated in a clever way. The saloon seating can provide two single berths. The forward cabin has twin berths that could be made into a double if you so wished.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This steel yacht is designed by one of the finest blue water yacht designers in New Zealand. I am waiting to hear back from the owner regarding the finer details of this yachts build and history.
She looks like a very capable yacht with clutter free decks, decent sized cockpit and fine lines. The interior is well designed. The internal fit out has been done on a budget but nevertheless has a charm of its own. If you would like to view this steel sailing yacht then do contact me as soon as possible because I do not think she will be on the market for a long time.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
