There's nothing quite like sipping ice-cold mojitos to the soundtrack of a sail flapping gently overhead. We take a look at some of the standout sailing yachts listed for sale at the Virtual BOAT Show...
Built in carbon fibre by Finnish yard Nautor’s Swan to a design by German Frers, the 27.7 metre Alix was delivered in 2009 as a high-performance yacht and received a range of upgrades in 2014/2015. An interior in wenge wood and tinted oak accommodates eight guests in four cabins.
Jongert sailing yacht Wellenreiter was designed by Andre Hoek and launched in 2003. The custom 46.1 metre sloop is the largest yacht built by the Dutch yard and can accommodate up to seven guests in a full-beam master suite, double cabin and a twin with a crew of six.
