60m tall ship Stavros S Niarchos for sale at Berthon
by Malcolm MacLean
Another unusual one now as Sue Grant at Berthon sends news that she has the 60m training ship Stavros S Niarchos for sale.
A joint listing with the Tall Ships Youth Trust, she was completed at Appledore in the UK in 2000 on a hull from Abeking & Rasmussen. While having the appearance of a classical tall ship she is equipped with a full specification of modern equipment including two controllable pitch propellers, air conditioning, water makers, satellite communications, radar and a bow thruster. Suitable for refit into a luxury ocean going yacht or a continued career as a training vessel Stavros S Niarchos is a rare opportunity to own and sail a modern square rigged brig.
Accommodation is for 67 in five doubles, six singles, one three berth and six dormitories with eight pipe-cot berths. The current dormitories could be easily removed during a refit to make way for larger luxury staterooms.
Lying in the Canaries, Stavros S Niarchos is asking £4.4 million.
