The 35.36 metre sailing yacht Tristan, listed for sale by Rex Herbert Jr at Sparkman & Stephens, has been sold with Gage Powell at United Yacht Brokers introducing the buyer.

Built in aluminium by US yard Workboats Northwest, she was delivered in 1993 as a cruising ketch and has never been chartered. A Glade Johnson interior with anigre wood panelling and maple trim accommodates eight guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite with a king sized bed and two double cabins convertible to three berths each, all with en-suite shower facilities.

Tristan was asking $1,495,000

The full-beam main saloon has L-shaped settees to port and starboard while the dining table with a burl maple top on the port side seats six guests comfortably. To starboard is an entertainment centre including a large television and there is a bar aft with bottle and glass storage.

Two Stidd low-backed helm chairs are installed at the starboard console of the pilothouse. Aft on raised platforms is an L-shaped seating area with a table to port and a bench seat with a small table to starboard.

The centre cockpit has comfortable seating for eight guests at a large fold-down table while a fridge and small sink are located on the starboard side.

On deck, she has a full complement of custom steel hardware by Harken while the main and mizzen mast furlers are driven by Reckmann hydraulic motors. Under power, twin 249hp Deutz diesel engines give her a range of 3,500 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 10 knots and she is fitted with Naiad bow and stern thrusters.

Lying in West Palm Beach, Florida, Tristan was asking $1,495,000.
