Sailing yacht Keewaydin now for sale at Northrop & Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
A call to Northrop & Johnson in Fort Lauderdale brings news that Michael Nethersole has taken over the central agency for sale of Palmer Johnson's 34m sailing yacht Keewaydin with a $590,000 price drop.
Delivered in 1996 and refitted in 2010, she’s the last sailing yacht to be built by the yard. The collaboration of Palmer Johnson, John G Alden and John Munford resulted in a superlative sailing vessel that could travel the world in unrivalled style and comfort for a vessel of her size. With Hood roller furling masts, Reckmann headstay furlers, a shallow draught centreboard design, a reliable Caterpillar main engine and a sail plan capable of powering her in all but the lightest winds, Keewaydin represents the epitome of a world cruiser.
On display at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale show, Keewaydin is down from $5.49 million to $4.9 million.
