Custom built in Taiwan for a very knowledgeable German engineer and shipyard owner who oversaw her construction closely. She is both beautifully done and operationally functional.
The result is a unique vessel with yacht level appointments and yet simple enough in her engineering and operation to be easily maintained by a small crew. Timeless styling and proper upkeep make her an exceptional yacht. She is ready to serve her next Owner as well as she has served her previous Owners.
Her unique blend of attributes are found only in a few exceptional yachts of this size. Although just 79' long she carries all the equipment and supplies necessary for extended economical and efficient offshore cruising with minimal crew and still has an enormous amount of space for entertaining. Her Caterpillar 375hp engines are located in a large engine room with plenty of room to access all four sides of the engines.
Guests can enjoy any of four separate areas aboard: the main salon, the great visibility in the pilothouse with Captains chair, new flooring and a wrap around leather settee for 4, the flybridge and the deck aft of the main salon with varnished table, settee and chairs.
A large master stateroom, 2 guest staterooms and separate crew quarters complete the accommodations. Built for strength, her design, coupled with oversized stabilizers, makes her a comfortable and seaworthy vessel in both coastal and offshore waters. Your family will be safe as well as comfortable in this wonderful Long Range Cruiser. NOW is the time to acquire this world-class cruiser!
