Y.CO signs sailing yacht Hanuman for sale

8 May 2012By Malcolm MacLean

Following the news earlier this week of Y.CO signing the 90m schooner Athena to the sales fleet, news arrives that they've now listed the 42.1m sailing yacht Hanuman as well.

Built by Royal Huisman in 2009, Hanuman is the modern recreation of Tommy Sopwith’s 41.3m J-class yacht, Endeavour II and was designed by Dykstra Naval Architects. A favourite on the world's regatta circuit, she combines high construction values with excellent sailing performance. Accommodation is for six guests in three cabins, plus eight crew.

Crowned Sailing Yacht of the Year at the World Superyacht Awards in 2010, Hanuman is offered in race-ready condition asking $18 million.
