Price drop on Alloy sailing yacht Eclipse
by Malcolm Maclean
The 32.6 metre sailing yacht Eclipse, listed for sale by Michael Selter at Crow’s Nest Yachts in San Diego, California, has had a $610,000 price reduction.
Built in aluminium by New Zealand yard Alloy Yachts, she was the first fruit of what became a long-standing association with Dubois Naval Architects and, ABS classed, was delivered in 1991. Accommodation is for up to seven guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite aft with a VIP suite to port and a twin cabin with a Pullman berth to starboard, all with entertainment centres, Sony television screens and en suite shower facilities. In addition, there are quarters for three crew aboard this yacht for sale.
A comfortable and cosy saloon has relaxing seating, a dining table and chairs, and an entertainment centre including a 40 inch Sony television screen. In a testament to her abilities as a long range cruising yacht, her original owners spent 14 years cruising the world aboard her.
In 2011 a refit included having her entire rig replaced while the interior and electronics systems were also upgraded and she was given a new set of Doyle ‘Stratis’ sails. A further refit in 2014 involved a complete paint job and her boom and rigging were fully inspected and serviced. Under power, a 452hp MTU diesel engine gives her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Eclipse is now asking $2,990,000.
