Price cut on classic sailing yacht Blue C 1
by Malcolm MacLean
The classic 33 metre sailing yacht Blue C 1, listed for sale by Heikki Luoma at Compass International, has had a €400,000 price reduction.
Built by FEAB Marstrandsverken in Sweden in 1990, she was previously named Spirit of Hennessy and was used to promote the Hennessy cognac brand in China where she sailed in the late 1990s. She was extensively refitted in 2004 and is a three masted gaff rigged steel schooner with a mahogany interior sleeping as many as 14 guests in seven cabins. Accommodation consists of two double and five twin cabins. Under power, a 405hp Cummins engine – new in 2008 – gives her a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 8 knots.
Blue C 1 is down from €1,850,000 to €1,450,000.
