This beautiful timeless 90 ft ketch is the ultimate vessel for extended luxury cruising. A proven passage maker, she offers a great chance to do some serious exploration without having to sacrifice style or comfort.

Launched in 1972 in Fiji and then commissioned in Sydney, she was reputed to be the largest twin keeled ketch in the world. She has been used for luxury charters in the South Pacific, her traditional lines and sleek construction have entertained the Hollywood A list and royalty alike, recently she is a much loved cruising vessel and now a reluctant sale. The boat remains on the Lloyds register and so the option to continue in a charter capacity is available. Her smaller capacity and style will ensure that she is suited to the luxury cruising market and she would be a fantastic addition to showcase a fleet or charter operation.

Having undergone a major refit in 1999 in Brisbane, the yacht has been very well maintained to the standards of a meticulous owner. Three double guest cabins, separate crew accommodation and a generous saloon area ensure that she is an extremely comfortable yacht to spend time aboard. Her large pilothouse offers great vantage down both rails, being a ketch she has a multitude of sail configurations and her waterline length means she will gobble up the miles during passages.
Aft is a secure cockpit and seating area, the perfect place to survey the view from your magnificent new yacht, forward is a large spacious foredeck with room to stow a tender.

This elegant yacht is awaiting new owners and new adventures, she will charm all who have the good fortune to sail upon her.
