|Four Seasons IV. This powerful 68' cruising yacht from the board of Ron Holland is now on the market.
Built by McGaffin Boat Builders of Auckland this famous masthead cutter is as much at home crossing oceans as she is entertaining on the Harbour. Four Seasons IV was fitted with such a comprehensive inventory of communication and instrumentation that she was three times radio relay vessel for the Sydney - Hobart yacht race.
Below decks she exudes quality with an interior fit-out you would expect to see on a much larger yacht. From the high volume bright timber interior to the full standing height workshop/engine room, she feels like a Super Yacht in disguise.
On deck she is easily sailed with a series of electric/hydraulic winches and furlers, with an aft deck that is ideal for entertaining.
Four Season's IV has not be used to her potential over the last 7 years and through lack of use, the current owner is regrettably selling.
She does require some cosmetic work below which is reflected in the asking price. She is however a great opportunity to secure a solid, beautifully built ocean passage-maker for a fraction of the cost of a new boat build.
