The 36.1 metre sloop Miss Silver is newly listed for sale with Matthew Ruane of Cecil Wright & Partners.
Built in aluminium at New Zealand-based yard Alloy Yachts in 1995, the fast cruising sloop was designed by Dubois Naval Architects and Redman Whiteley Dixon, a strong combination who have designed and built a number of award-winning sailing yachts.
Her broker pointed out: "She was built for an experienced owner who cherished her until 2019, when she was purchased by her second and present owner".
She underwent a multi-million-dollar refit from 2021 to 2022 and benefits from new joinery, fabrics, and furnishings, top-of-the-range audio-visual and IT equipment and a brand-new galley. Her exterior refit work included a full repaint, replacement of decks, new sails, helm stations and control systems.
Miss Silver can accommodate up to eight guests in four cabins, with a large master suite situated aft with en suite facilities and a bath tub.
There is a further VIP and two twins for guests and quarters for a crew of five. Miss Silver benefits from both an upper deck saloon, with trademark Dubois wraparound windows, sporting seating and a navigation station, and lower saloon where the formal 10-person dining table is located to starboard opposite more comfortable seating.
On deck, guests can enjoy a large dedicated cockpit, with a further 10-seater dining table, shaded by a bimini while the crew carry out their sail handling operations aft. Twin helm stations ensure good visibility forward and performance is as expected from any Dubois yacht – fast. She most recently won the 2020 Millennium Cup.
The 157GT sailing yacht for sale is powered by a single Lugger 500hp diesel giving a range of 4,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 10 knots and a top speed of 12 knots.
Miss Silver, asking €8,750,000, is being shipped to Spain, for the Palma International Boat Show in April.
