A €350,000 price drop has been announced on the 28.6-metre sailing yacht Galma, listed for sale with Jamie Small of Burgess.
Built of carbon fibre by Wally in Italy in 2003, the sloop was designed by Germán Frers, her interior having been designed by Luca Bassani of Wally. She was substantially refitted in 2008 and has been meticulously maintained since.
Galma accommodates eight guests with a full beam owner's twin cabin aft, benefiting from two deck hatches, two hull ports and windows looking out over the aft deck. Forward of the saloon are two double cabins, each with a deck hatch and a Pullman berth. All have en suite bathrooms and there are quarters for a crew of up to four.
A companionway leads down from the cockpit into the light, contemporary saloon which has a dining table to port and a large settee and coffee table to starboard, aft of which is the navigation station. Her open-plan galley, tucked away aft and to port, has stainless steel worktops and a seamanlike layout.
On deck is a spacious guest cockpit, shaded by a removable awning, with seating and a table for cocktails or dining. Aft are two deck terraces suitable for sun bathing. A section of transom folds down to create a swim platform at anchor.
The broker explained that Frers' design brief was to combine regatta winning performance when fully crewed, offering her owner a superb experience at the wheel, with the shorthanded cruising credentials required to be comfortable and easily handled when exploring coasts or crossing oceans.
Mast and both racing and cruising booms are by Southern Spars and were repainted in winter 2016-17, along with the hull and superstructure. Galma has full North Sails wardrobes for racing and cruising.
Under her 240hp Yanmar engine the yacht for sale can cruise at 10 knots with a top speed of 12 knots. Range under power at 10 knots is 800 nautical miles.
Galma is now asking €2,900,000 with VAT paid.
