Superyacht Godspeed's price cut at Camper & Nicholsons

3 January 2011By Malcolm MacLean

A call to Bill Sanderson at Camper & Nicholsons in Palm Beach brings confirmation of a $200,000 price reduction on his central listing, the 24.4m sailing yacht Godspeed.

Built by Kelly Archer in 1998 to a design by Steve Dashew, Godspeed was designed to be sailed by a couple without the need of extra crew and sleeps six guests in three cabins. She is a remarkably stiff, comfortable and fast passage maker. In moderate trades, with the wind from a close to broad reach, she will easily and comfortably average 300 miles per day. Designed to travel 230 - 300 miles per day under sail typically, this superyacht moves at 85%-95% of the wind speed with the small jib, main and mizzen.

She has a simple, easy to use salt water ballast system which reduces heel by six to eight degrees and typically increases speed ten to fifteen percent.

This vessel is fully fitted out for extensive offshore work has been shaken down and fine tuned, and is ready to head around the world after topping off her tanks and visiting the local market. Godspeed is now asking $1.75 million.
