Classic Sailing Yacht Sky Now For Sale With Van der Vliet

29 August 2019By Malcolm Maclean

The 26 metre classic sailing yacht Sky has changed central agencies and is now listed for sale by Ad van der Vliet at Van der Vliet Quality Yachts.

Built with a mahogany hull on oak frames and teak superstructure by British yard Thetis Ware, Sky was delivered in 1890 as a gaff rigged yawl. Following all the mishaps and accidents that can befall a yacht of this age, she was brought back to her original condition during an extensive restoration in Spain carried out from 1997 to 1999. A further massive refit was carried out from 2008 to 2014 during which she received modern equipment and 27 of her oak frames were replaced.

Sky is asking €975,000

Sky now has a completely new interior in Honduras mahogany accommodating four guests in an owner’s suite and a guest cabin, both sharing bathroom facilities, in this yacht for sale.

The saloon is spacious and elegant set-up with a mahogany table in the centre between two settees sporting classic blue leather cushions. At the sides are small lockers and a bookshelf, while to port space has been created for a television screen. Up on deck, a spacious cockpit is situated in front of the helmsman’s console and has teak seating with new cushions that have never been used.

She is equipped with a comprehensive set of navigation and communication equipment, suitable for longer trips at sea, and is powered by a single 220hp Mercruiser diesel engine.

Lying in Amsterdam, Holland, Sky is asking €975,000 with VAT paid.
