Royal Huisman sailing yacht Volador for sale
by Malcolm MacLean
The 25 metre sailing yacht Volador has been listed for sale by Julien Solari at The World of Yachting. If the company name seems unfamiliar, that's because it's the new name that Thierry Voisin has given to his company.
Volador was built in aluminium by Dutch yard Royal Huisman to a design by German Frers and delivered in 1982 as a cruising ketch. She underwent a complete technical and cosmetic refit in 2005, which included fitting a virtually all-new interior with four double guest cabins, each with en-suite bathroom facilities. All electronic equipment was replaced and upgraded, while deck hardware, safety equipment and sailing hydraulics were also replaced.
On deck, the central cockpit is a favourite spot for guests, with plenty of space for al fresco cocktails or dining while admiring the fine views.
Fully MCA compliant, Volador has proved to be a very popular charter yacht, as she’s a true blue water thoroughbred, guaranteed to bring many miles of happy cruising to the sailing connoisseur. Under power, a 260hp Mercedes engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots.
Volador is asking €1,250,000.
