The 42.8 metre classic sailing yacht Asgard has been listed for sale by Marc Haendle at Camper & Nicholsons International.
Built in cold moulded mahogany by German yard Abeking & Rasmussen to a design by Bruce King, she was delivered in 1993 as a classic ketch with a very shallow draft of 3.2 metres allowing extensive cruising capabilities. She has had two notable refits, one in 2014, which focused on refreshing the impressive aesthetics such as a new teak deck and new interior design by Rhoades Young. Then a 2020 refit focused on a complete mechanical and technical overhaul from the thrusters to the main engine.
Accommodation is for 10 guests in five staterooms - a master suite, two double staterooms and two twin cabins, all with en suite facilities. Considering the variety of destinations Asgard has undertaken, from Alaska to the South Pacific and New Zealand, her interior remains impressively warm and charming.
Under power, a single 985hp MTU diesel engine gives her a range of 2,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 10 knots. Alas, many of the skills involved in building her are now lost and she may be the last major mahogany hulled sailing yacht to be built.
The asking price of Asgard is available on application.
