MUSTANG is a true performance world cruiser with a successful history of being safe, reliable and comfortable. Her hull is the well-known hull of Doug Peterson’s Ocean 80 series built at Southern Ocean Shipyard. To incorporate a large lazarette, the boat was extended three feet, then taken for fitting at the Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard. MUSTANG showcases many modern features and amenities and is in incredible condition, courtesy of her serious year-long refit and detailed upgrades over the last few years.

MUSTANG is ideal for an owner seeking a unique sailing yacht that has the capabilities to last a lifetime, as well as ease of handling as she can be sailed with just two-to-three sailors. The yacht is a combination of a global cruiser with a pilothouse/deck salon and at the same time offers exceptional sailing performance. MUSTANG has been around the world four times, a testament to her durability and sailing capabilities. She is properly built to take on the most treacherous seas of the Southern Ocean and her suite of four sails gives excellent options for sail configuration to fit the weather. Full operational control of the yacht from the enclosed pilot house provides comfort and safety while cruising in inclement weather or rough seas. The outside helm station provides one-person control of the helm, sail furlers and primary sail trim. Her shallow draft under 10’ (3m) allows easy access to cruising grounds. MUSTANG was one of the first to have opened up the division between a pilothouse and lower salon, contributing to her versatility. To this day, this popular layout allows guests to utilize every available space, from the upper and lower salons to the cockpit outside.

From 2018-2022, almost $2 million dollars was invested in MUSTANG. In 2019, her rig was out and her mast and boom were refurbished and painted. She received new teak decks and cap rails, new winches, hatches and deck hardware. A new Lewmar winch package was installed and new Goiot deck hatches and port lights. MUSTANG’s new electronics include a B&G suite of a chart plotter and deck displays and a new AV system. All standing and running rigging was replaced and in 2020 she received new North 3Di sails. A Cummins engine and new Northern Lights generator were installed in 2021 and a new Onan generator in 2018. Her interior was refurbished or renewed from the air conditioning systems to the furnishings and soft goods. MUSTANG received all new safety gear including a new engine room fire suppression system and new life rafts. On her exterior, her hull and superstructure were painted and new antifoul bottom paint and Propspeed were applied in 2022.

MUSTANG is spacious for her size, boasting a similar layout and design to much larger vessels. Honey-colored teak is seen throughout her interior, complemented by simple detailing. Her enclosed pilothouse/upper salon offers 360-degree views and is a lovely place for guests to enjoy conversations at the L-shaped settee. Elegant stairs lead to the main salon below, where guests will find a six-person teak dining table, a wonderful curved bar and plenty of cabinetry for storage. A rounded cabinet opens to glass mosaic mirrors where glassware is stored, a unique feature that makes life onboard extra special. A curved corner settee with a cocktail table acts as a great conversation or lounging area.

Forward of the lower salon is the galley which features all the necessary amenities for life onboard as well as a crew mess. Farther forward are two crew cabins; the port one can be configured to a double bed or put a pipe cot as another single if necessary and the starboard one has over/under bunks. They share a large head forward. All guest staterooms are situated aft for up to six guests. From the pilothouse, stairs lead down to a corridor to the aft full-width master stateroom, two guest staterooms and engine room access. The master stateroom is luxurious with a centerline queen bed, settees on each side, closets, cabinets and drawers for plenty of storage. The settee on the port side can convert to a 6’ sea berth. A built-in desk with a seat is on the starboard side. Various types of lighting permit reading or create a mood. The en-suite bath provides a huge enclosed shower and mirrored cabinets. Moving forward, the port guest stateroom has a full-sized bed, hanging locker, drawers and cabinets for storage as well as an en-suite bath with a stall shower and mirrored cabinets. A door from the head to the hall gives this head the flexibility to be a day head. The starboard stateroom has twin beds with a bureau between them. The ensuite head with the usual amenities also houses the washer/dryer and access through the guest shower to the engine room.

MUSTANG has an enormous on-deck cockpit for outside living with an elevated steering area aft. A refrigerated compartment in the table makes life super simple. A Bimini and side closures ensure protection during inclement weather. For those who wish to sunbathe, there are cushions on the aft deck when the tender is deployed and farther aft is an additional conversation area when additional chairs are set up. The forward deck provides ample room for guests to congregate at the dock or under sail.
