In addition, she has berths to sleep up to six crew. Her rich Burmese teak interior compliments the plush leather sofas. Panoramic 360-degree views are available from her climate-controlled main-deck saloon. Adjoining the pilot house is a large shaded cockpit with two dining tables, enabling guests to dine under the stars.
Extensive outdoor deck areas on this yacht for sale create plenty of space for relaxation underway or at anchor. In addition, her list of equipment is extensive, including a wide range of water toys to provide the new owners with plenty of opportunities for fun in the sun.
A cutter rigged sloop, she provides excellent sailing performance combined with ease of handling and her range under power is 6,500 nautical miles from a single 240hp Gardner diesel engine.
Currently lying in Thailand, Asia is asking $2.9 million.
