FRUITION's sturdy build and easy-to-handle sail plan together with her easy-to-enter, inviting and roomy interior makes her a superb circumnavigation yacht. She also features three watertight bulkheads for safety.
FRUITION was built for an owner with a previous Kanter yacht, which was sailed around the world. With this in mind the 86-foot FRUITION was drawn and she has become the best of all worlds. The weight saving idea of only having teak in the cockpit is smart and her waterline is lengthened as soon as she starts to sail. FRUITION is part of the Bermuda Series. She is an all aluminum, long-distance cruising ketch. FRUITITON always had good crew and an owner who did not need to budget his hobby, whatever was needed, got done.
It is clear that a very experienced yachtsman designed the decks and the result is practical, large, easy to move around and spacious where this is needed. FRUITION has excellent deck space with a truly vast aft deck where her big RIB is stowed on passage. The cockpit is a delight; it is good to look at and practical and comfortable in use with a great dining table. It has a fixed Bimini and a folding sprayhood forward.
FRUITION’s layout is very inviting for a family that wants to sail with or without crew. Her systems are relatively standard and the maintenance on deck is minimal. She is ideal for long trips and surely can withstand heavy weather. The cabin accommodation throughout is extremely comfortable, affording good privacy for both the owner’s party and the crew, of whom three can be accommodated. The raised salon with large dining table, good views of the surroundings and ample air through the deck hatches. American Cherry, either solid or veneered. Cabin soles in Teak and Maple.
FRUITION has an aluminum marine-grade welded hull and deck with two GMT Carbon fibre masts. Her carbon booms with racks and sail bags allow for easy stowage.
