Bayard sailing yacht Damahwil for sale
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Bayards Shipyard to a design by the inimitable Dubois Naval Architects, she was delivered to her current owner in 2010 as a fast cruiser/racer and was refitted in 2015. Sloop-rigged, she has been optimized for sailing short-handed by the inclusion of simplified sailing systems and has trans-oceanic capabilities.
Her large interior volume, decorated in teak panelling throughout, accommodates eight guests in four comfortable cabins including a full beam master suite, and all come with en suite shower facilities. Southeast Asian touches are an underlying influence in her décor, yet used as a subtle theme throughout.
When creating Damahwil, the designers, engineers and craftsmen involved took the best that existed and made it even better in order to combine luxury, comfort and prestige with the most advanced technologies and reaching top performance levels for worldwide cruising.
This yacht for sale features two decks including a raised saloon and a fixed Bimini top over the cockpit, which has mechanically operated sliding windows. There is ample stowage forward of the mast and a fold down bathing platform.
Damahwil has a fixed keel and is equipped with a seamless carbon mast, Oceanfurl boom and SCR continuous airfoil carbon rigging from Hall Spars as well as a full set of 3-dimensionally moulded light weight sails consisting of Main, Genoa, Jib and Staysail provided by North Sails. Under power, a 540hp Caterpillar engine gives her a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Lying in Loano, Italy, Damahwil is asking €6.9 million.
