by Malcolm MacLean
The 31.09 metre sailing yacht Pacific Eagle has changed central agencies and is now listed for sale with Sue Grant at Berthon International.
A cruising ketch, she was built by New Zealand's Alloy Yachts in aluminium to a design by Don Brooke and delivered in 1989 with a refit in 2002. Designed for long term adventure cruising, she easily achieves 200 nautical miles a day.
Pacific Eagle combines the romance and elegance of a fine sailing yacht with the space and comfort of a motor yacht. The interior of this yacht for sale has crisp clean lines with a nautical theme. She offers accommodation for six guests in three cabins, each with an en-suite shower facility, plus quarters for four crew. Guests can choose to dine inside or outside in the sheltered cockpit.
The cockpit is equipped with an excellent sound system and offers a great vantage point to enjoy the experience of sailing in comfort and safety. Pacific Eagle has a fold-down transom for easy water access, whether swimming or using the great selection of water toys and has an impressive charter history in the South Pacific.
She is fitted with a 3,400 square foot sailplan by North Sails with hydraulic winches and, under power, has twin Gardner diesel engines that allow a cruising speed of 10 knots
Lying in New Zealand, Pacific Eagle is asking $NZ2,700,000.
