Built by Holland Jachtbouw as a fast cruising sloop, she was launched in 2006 with naval architecture by Dixon Yacht Design and interiors by John Munford. The interior is both modern and warm with clever use of pear and wenge woods to contrast against light white panels and woven leather inserts. YII sleeps up to six guests in three cabins located forward including a generous master suite.
William Bishop says,'She is a stunning, powerful performance sloop. Her optimized hull and keel design gives maximum lift, stability and efficiency and her exceptional sail area to displacement ratio gives outstanding performance even in the slightest of breezes. We are very proud not only to have sold YII but to have sold her to an owner I know will enjoy and appreciate all that she has to offer.'
YII was asking €12.5 million.
