Now Reduced !!!!! This 50' Flying Dutchman Cutter was built for serious blue water sailing with her cutaway forefoot fin keel, canoe stern, low profile and heavy construction. She has proved herself to her long time current owners, as a quality offshore cruising yacht. With a comfortable saloon, excellent sea galley and beautiful woodwork below and generous accommodations, owners and guests will be well catered for. Her canoe stern and overall length allows great handling in all seas. Owners relate stories of her ability to sail well and have often left others in her wake on long offshore passages. All lovely solid teak craftsmanship of the lockers and shelves is true to her heritage. She is a great family cruiser or for the more adventures couple who want room and storage.
Exceptional Value Cruising Yacht with a cruising heritage that is outstanding. Vessels of this design are seldom seen in Australian Waters.
The Flying Dutchman is a big strong yacht with a very usable layout. The Internal helm station makes for comfortable cruising in extreme weather conditions. Her current owner have cruised extensively with her and have just finished the season on the East Coast of Australia and decided to focus on land based adventures for now. She is fully imported taxes paid here in Australia and ready to head out with new owners.
