David East Yachting sells superyacht Sceptre

David East Yachting sells superyacht Sceptre

There's a noticeable lilt in David East's voice as I call him today at David East Yachting to offer congratulations on his sale of the 27.74m classic sailing yacht Sceptre to a direct client.

Says David, 'It's been a long, hard slog, but one of my many mottoes is never give up on a sale.'

And now more about the boat: an elegant ketch, she was built in 1991 by Camper & Nicholsons to a Sparkman & Stephens design as the famous Victoria of Strathearn. Sceptre has an aft steering cockpit and a large midships guest cockpit. Mainsail and mizzen masts have in-mast furling and her tender is carried in aft davits or, for long passages, in an athwartships cradle.

Below, a beautifully crafted walnut interior by Andrew Winch offers a spacious saloon, large owners' stateroom and two guest cabins. Crew quarters comprise a galley, crew mess and two cabins.

Sceptre was asking €1.9 million and will soon make her way to her new base in Thailand.
