31m classic two-masted schooner Borkumriff II sold

18 August 2022

The 31 metre classic sailing yacht Borkumriff II has been sold to new owners by Joeri Saly at YachtFull International. 

The two-masted schooner was first delivered in 1982 by Lubbe Voss to an experienced owner. She is the second in a legendary series of traditionally-styled sailing superyachts and the first of two Borkumriffs to be designed by Lunstroo.

Borkumriff II  was built in steel with a teak superstructure and completed a rebuild in 2009, where every system was serviced or replaced, and again in 2021.

Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, double and twin, all with stereo sound systems, flatscreen television sets and full en suite facilities. In 2021, the master cabin received a full decorative revamp, including the installation of a new hardwood mahogany floor. In addition, there is accommodation for five crew in two cabins.

A cosy saloon has ample seating, a dining area and an entertainment centre including a large Samsung television screen, while on deck the open cockpit offers an al fresco entertaining and dining area protected from the sun by a large awning. 

A chess and backgammon board feature at the centre of the glossy interior dining table.

On the technical side, her extensive sail wardrobe comprises Dacron sails and her wooden masts and booms are hollow, section-glued and of fine grain Oregon pine. All deck hardware and fittings are custom-made in steel and bronze.

Her deck space also offers storage for two tenders; a wooden motor launch and a RIB.

Under power, a 300hp John Deere diesel engine gives her a cruising speed of 8 knots and a range of 1,300 nautical miles.

Borkumriff II was asking €2,480,000.
