Lee Marine are very proud to represent a perfectly restored piece of history set up now to cruise any where in comfort with the robust performance you would expect from a Whitbread round the world racer.
This cutter rigged ketch is the sister-ship to the famous Whitbread round-the-world racer Kriter, built for Baron Bich as his cruising yacht.
The current owner purchased the classic yacht in Spain in 2007. She was then sailed to a shipyard in Myanmar (Burma) where she underwent a complete rebuild/refurbish over 2 years. Rebuilt to MCA Survey Specifications and finished-off to exceptional standard she is now offered for sale in “as new” condition.
Burmese teak has been used throughout and teak for the decks and cabin soles is 100 year-old seasoned timber sourced from Colonial buildings as they were demolished.
Apart from the Kohler Generator, Renault-Couach engines and Seafresh water maker, all other components and systems installed in the boat are new. Many systems are custom designed and built including the revolutionary design for the 500 litre, 400kg fridge! The engines, generator and water maker have been completely overhauled and rebuilt to as-new condition. All above deck hardware and rigging was serviced, tested and replaced as required. The yacht’s power systems are designed around an exceptionally low-power DC electrical configuration with DC fridge and freezer compressors and LED lighting used exclusively throughout, including all interior and navigation lights.
The latest B&G and computerised high-tech navigation and control systems round out an incomparable refit of a classic yacht with a great performance and an enviable pedigree.
