Formosa yachts have an enviable record as the ideal world cruiser with so many used as long term tourers and full time live aboards. Have no doubts, this is a serious yacht for those seeking to escape the rat race for a few hours, several weeks or a lifetime adventure. Built solidly with heavy glass hull and decks, a powerful ketch rig with oversized rigging and plenty of sail area these yachts are designed for crossing oceans, yet will sit nicely at anchor in your favourite bay for a quiet weekend.

The ships quarters feature a large saloon area with full galley, leafed dining table and nav station, all flooded with natural light via large pilot house windows. Lofty ceilings throughout the yacht create a sense of space, critical for long term comfort. Forward is another large room with guest accommodation via a large single (port) and double berth (stbd). A full sized, enclosed head with separate shower continues to port with 2 crew cabins to stbd, each with single berth. Aft of the saloon is a comfortable master cabin with ensuite. This features a full sized double berth, hanging lockers, cupboards and draws. The ship is fitted in solid teak with ample ventilation via numerous large hatches and portholes.

The current long term owner has continually upgraded this stunning bluewater cruiser to the point where she's pretty well ready to go! This includes numerous mechanical, sail and cosmetic updates as outlined below.

Changed circumstances necessitate our realistic pricing to encourage a prompt sale. For more detailed information or to arrange an inspection of this unique yacht, please contact our Sydney office on 9969 2144 or email sales@yachtsalesaustralia. Com
