Sailing yacht Keewaydin now for sale at Wellington Yacht Partners
by Malcolm MacLean
Murray Lord at Wellington Yacht Partners tells me he's taken over the central sales listing on Palmer Johnson’s 34m sailing yacht Keewaydin with a $400,000 price cut.
Delivered in 1996 and refitted in 2010, she’s the last sailing yacht to be built by the yard. The collaboration of Palmer Johnson, John G Alden and John Munford resulted in a superlative sailing vessel that could travel the world in unrivalled style and comfort for a vessel of her size. With Hood roller furling masts, Reckmann headstay furlers, a shallow draught centreboard design, a reliable Caterpillar main engine and a sail plan capable of powering her in all but the lightest winds, Keewaydin represents the epitome of a world cruiser.
Lying at the Newport Shipyard in Rhode Island, Keewaydin is down to $3,950,000.
