Price drop on SWS sailing yacht Blues
by Malcolm Maclean
The 30.2 metre sailing yacht Blues, listed for sale by Will Bishop at Yachting Partners International, has had a price reduction of €500,000.
Built in GRP by South African yard Southern Wind Shipyard to a design by Farr Yacht Design, she was delivered in 2010 with Nauta Design responsible for the general concept, interior design and exterior styling. She offers great revenue potential for eight guests on charter due to her four guest cabin layout comprising a master suite, VIP suite and two twin cabins, all with en suite shower facilities. In addition, there are quarters for four crew aboard this yacht for sale.
She is characterised by the sporty lines of a low coach roof profile and an open transom while the saloon is a wide open space offering plenty of room for comfortable seating and a dining area in a warm and cosy interior.
On the technical side, her Park Avenue carbon fibre boom was manufactured by Southern Spars who also supplied the High Modulus carbon fibre mast . Her wardrobe of carbon fibre sails is from Quantum Sails in South Africa while, under power, a 305hp Cummins diesel engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots, topping out at 11.5 knots.
Lying in Palma, Spain, Blues is now asking €4,900,000.
