2014-08-25By Malcolm MacLean

Brian Commette at Northrop & Johnson sends details of his new listing for sale with colleague John Boone, the 30.4 metre classic sailing yacht Summerwind.

Built by US yard CA Morse to a design by John Alden, this schooner was delivered in 1929 and had a significant $8 million refit in 2009/2009. She offers accommodation for thirteen in seven cabins, comfortable social spaces, a beautifully designed deckhouse and wide open decks. The accommodation deck is five steps down from the deckhouse with the owner’s cabin to port at the companionway with a double berth, ample storage and an en suite head and shower. Additional guest cabins are distributed to port and starboard on either side of the central passageway. Each cabin has an upper and lower berth arrangement with the lower berth as an oversized single. Each is also equipped with a vanity unit and sink.

The galley and dining area is amidships with a dining table large enough for the entire ship’s company. The galley is fully modernised with 28sq.ft. of stainless steel countertop in an efficient U- shape, stainless steel fridge/freezer, a double sink and a four-burner cooking hob with oven.

As a staysail schooner with powered winches, Summerwind is a relatively simple yacht to sail and does not require a large complement of crew. She would serve well as a family cruising yacht or charter yacht.

Lying in Newport, Rhode Island, Summerwind is asking $3.95 million.
