Sailing yacht Heidenskip for sale at De Valk
by Malcolm MacLean
The very pretty 25.5 metre sailing yacht Heidenskip is currently listed for sale by De Valk.
Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Aluboot to a design by Van de Stadt, she was delivered in 2005 as a sloop-rigged yacht and has had the same owner ever since, along with a skipper who has kept her in immaculate condition. Accommodation is for six guests in three cabins consisting of a master and two further doubles, all with en suite shower facilities.
Features of this yacht are twin rudders and a hydraulically operated lifting keel. The minimum draft of 2 metres enables her to navigate shallow waters and enter otherwise inaccessible ports. In addition, she has a comfortable cockpit with a dining table, bench seating on either side and a retractable Bimini top, ideal for dining under the stars in a secluded anchorage. Her hull recently received a full repaint and, under power, a 335hp MAN-Nanni diesel engine gives her a cruising speed of 9.5 knots.
Her broker, Henk Sijbranda, comments: 'The elegant sloop Heidenskip easily achieves twelve knots of cruising speed under sail, thanks in part to her carbon rig and new sails.'
Lying in Martinique, Heidenskip is asking €1,475,000.
