Simultaneously, news arrives from Michael Nethersole at Northrop & Johnson and Toby Walker at Dubois Yachts of a $450,000 price reduction on their joint listing, the 32.3m sailing yacht Carl Linné.
Designed by Gerald Dijkstra and built in 2003 by Holland Jachtbouw to Lloyds class, Carl Linné is a modern interpretation of the fast and seaworthy Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter. Like her forbears, her powerful sail plan is easy to handle with a minimum of crew, and her plumb bow and broad counter stern give her a strong, workmanlike appearance.
MCA Large Yacht compliant, Carl Linné accommodates six guests in three staterooms.
On display at the Fort Lauderdale show, Carl Linné is now down to $5.25 million.
