Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Bayards Shipyard to a design by the inimitable Dubois Naval Architects, Radiance was delivered in 2010 as a fast cruiser/racer and most recently refitted in 2019. With a sloop rigging, she has been optimised for sailing short-handed by the inclusion of simplified sailing systems.
Her voluminous interior, finished in teak panelling, can accommodate up to eight guests in four comfortable cabins including a full-beam master suite. All cabins come with en suite shower facilities. Southeast Asian touches are an underlying influence throughout.
She features two decks including a raised saloon and a fixed bimini top over the cockpit, which has mechanically operated sliding windows. There is ample stowage forward of the mast and a fold-down bathing platform.
Radiance has a fixed keel and is equipped with a carbon mast, Oceanfurl boom and SCR continuous airfoil carbon rigging from Hall Spars as well as a full set of 3D moulded lightweight sails consisting of main, genoa, jib and staysail provided by North Sails. Under power, a 540hp Caterpillar engine gives her a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Radiance was asking €6,400,000.
