Nordia sailing yacht Constance sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 29 metre sailing yacht Constance, listed for sale by Toby Walker at Stockbridge Yacht Brokers, has been sold.
Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Van Dam Nordia to a design by Robert Van Dam, she was delivered in 2003 as a bluewater cruising ketch and received an extensive refit in 2014. The refit saw her receive a new set of sails while her masts and rigging were also upgraded. Masts and spars are by Hall spars while Lewmar winches are used throughout.
A classic interior accommodates eight guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite and two twin guest cabins, each with a Pullman berth, and all cabins have entertainment centres and full en suite facilities.
Constance is a capable and reliable sailing yacht that is also very safe, strong, comfortable and practical. A huge cockpit is fully equipped for al fresco dining and entertaining at sea or when anchored while her comfortable saloon offers a 50 inch LG television screen. Included in the offer are her two tenders and a Bauer dive compressor. A single 425hp Lugger engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots and a range of 3,500 nautical miles at 8 knots.
Her broker, Toby Walker, comments: “The ultimate family yacht for comfort, luxury, space and range. A true go-anywhere cruising vessel in immaculate, ‘as new’ condition. Refitted extensively in 2014, Constance has the volume and spaces of a much larger yacht but without the similar expenditure and costs."
Constance was asking €2,195,000.
