**Receiving proposals until December 10th, if not sold prior. **

A unique opportunity exists to own a modern classic expedition/charter topsail schooner.

S/V Ruach was lavishly refitted in 2012 as a vessel capable of training or expedition charter and until recently has been in use as a medical and training vessel to remote locations as part of YWAM Ships Newcastle operations.

Built by Blumenthaler Werft, in Germany (launched 1986) to Germanischer Lloyd SE to GL100 A4 standard sailing yacht.

In 2012 a full and complete strip down & refit including cabins machinery, plumbing sailing gear and electronics was carried out bringing her up to code with the current survey regulations.

The quality standard of this yacht meets the quality requirements of modern charter sailing yachts and the traditional shape of the hull integrates all advantages of the modern steel ship building. S/V Ruach's safety equipment and fire protection are up to code with the current survey regulations.

From a present day perspective, the long keel ship with "clipper stem" and schooner rigging is really a remarkable vintage looking ship.
