Description/Condition

Own a legend! This Boat is very fast, (has topped 26kts under sail), very comfortable and an excellent value.

The owner built this yacht over a period of seven years with the help of a collection of dedicated and highly skilled crafts men, guided by Peter Ebbutt, a well known Naval Architect and Structural Engineer, who kept the project on the proper path. The result of that effort has exceeded his highest and very ambitious expectations. She handles beautifully... in choppy waters, high wind and lazy breezes. The boat performs completely balanced with outstanding control. Should the wind fail to smile on her, the reliable turbo-charged Cummings power plant propels her to her destination. When the owner looks back at the photos he took during the early building phases, he's reminded of what a journey it was, from the first paper drawings, to her breath-taking launch seven years later, in October 1996. One of his many fond memories is sailing her under spinnaker in the warm waters of Southern Mexico. As is often the case, the regatta organizers schedule races during a full moon. She moved almost silent, and he remembers gliding through the waves at 12 to 15 knots, with the reflection of the full moon glistening on the water. The owner watched a pod of dolphins swim aside the boat. They raced to catch the bow, to dash beneath it, leaving a phosphorous trail that lit the water around them. It was serene and beautiful and will be for you as well. Don't pass this beauty up. Give us a call today!

Accommodations
Below decks are seventeen beds half of them are wide enough to sleep two people. In addition, there is an owner’s cabin with a large hanging locker, oversize queen bed, bathroom, shower, lots of storage, TV, CD player and surround sound. There are two additional bathrooms and a large shower, as well as a very sizable hanging locker and lots of storage space throughout the vessel.



Galley
The galley is flanked by a horizontal freezer. Besides assuring fresh food, it is strategically located to keep the chef in the cooking area, when rough seas or heeling could command otherwise. The upright fridge and freezer is made by General Electric.



Electronics 
Data Marine Offshore Electronics Package that is hardwired to a Swiss GPS computer, as well as to the vessels computer that is used for the electronic chart system. The computer is a latest high speed Dell unit with a 17" flat NEC high resolution monitor. All electronics “talk” to each other via NMEA 0183.



Electrical
The electrical needs of the yacht are met by three separate banks of deep cycle batteries. One battery bank provides the engine and generator starting power, the second furnishes isolated power supply for the computer and instruments. The third bank services the remaining components and fixtures for the vessel.
A 5000 watt Northern Lights diesel generator services the 110 volt needs. It also powers the computerized charging system for the battery banks.
While the yacht is in use, the generator runs full time and virtually silent. It has a dual pack of sound insulation and is positioned in the insulated engine room. The generators use 1/2 gallon of fuel per hour, making it an inexpensive source of energy.



Sails & Rigging
The mast extends 130 ft. above the water line. It was fabricated from an aluminum extrusion and aircraft riveted the lengths of it. The boom has a fixed clew, and moves away from the mast hydraulically to flatten the sail.

Lidgard Sailmakers in New Zealand made:

(1) 2-ply Mylar full battened mainsail.
(1) Mylar # 1 genoa
(1) 2-ply Mylar # 3 genoa
(1) Mylar 165% reacher
(1) Nylon 110ft. Asymmetric spinnaker
(1) Mylar tallboy
(1) Mylar staysail to go with the reacher

The yacht also has at least ten other assorted spinnakers, as well as a blast reacher and other mainsails and genoas that I bought from the Japanese A/C boat. Some of these sails were hardly used by the America Cup Syndicate and are excellent.
The head sails are stored below the cabin sole. Longitudinal bulkheads are located below the waterline form the compartments. These tunnels are also epoxy coated and varnished, which helps the sausage bagged sails to slide smoothly in and out of their respective locations.

The yacht has 4- Primary Barient grinder drums that are inter connected by 3- pedestals. There are 9-various other winches.

The rod rigging was custom designed by Navtec Engineers.




Water & Power
Potable water is stored in four separate tanks, located under port and starboard bunks. The "Village Marine Tech" water maker is new and powered electrically.
