|Centre-cockpit ketch, custom-designed and built in Tasmania to sail the world. "Glenshiel VII" has had only two owners and both have cruised long-distance. She has circumnavigated Australia, cruised the Louisiades and in 2010 spent the winter sailing the East Coast of Australia.
A huge amount of new gear was installed in preparation for this last voyage and the boat was thoroughly refitted and upgraded. Easy to handle, very efficient under sail and engine and comfortable in any conditions, this is a beautifully-built boat with real character and she is ready to go again now. Australian registered ship.
