This magnificent long distance cruising vessel has the lot! With it's powerful classic lines, spacious living accommodation, and old world appeal she's an ideal vessel to circumnavigate the world, to use as a floating home at anchor or at a marina, or for a chartering business of some kind. Launched in 1930 in Holland, Sindbad was originally built as a cargo vessel. The present owners converted her to a luxury cruising vessel in 1992. She has completed two circumnavigations, the first of which while their children were growing up over a span of ten years. Sadly after 26 years aboard, the time has come for them to radically size down. Please contact Master Marine Brokers for more information on this magnificent long distance cruising vessel.

Auto pilot and steering system. A "thrige" ships type auto pilot. It operates a 24vdc hydraulic /electric pilot. This is an incredibly strong, durable danish system. It has operated for us for 25 years without fault. It is massively constructed incorporating a bronze pedestal for the wheel, pilot system in the lazarette. The 4 inch diameter hydraulic rams manoeuvre the rudder. There is a joy stick for manoeuvring in close quarters, which operates quickly in comparison to the wheel.
