FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Built at the legendary Cantiere Sangermani in Lavagna in advanced composite construction to designs by Bruce Farr (Design No.366) and boasting the most beautiful Nauta designed interior, EL BAILE (ex DESIRADE II) is the perfect high-performance blue water cruising yacht. From her winglet keel and balanced spade rudder, to her powerful hydraulic push-button 4-spreader rig, she is designed to go fast, yet in total control and comfort. Engineered to allow for sailing with the minimal of crew, she is also the perfect private family or charter yacht, and thanks to her 360-degree vision raised-saloon, four sumptuous staterooms and fully equipped gourmet galley, she will provide very comfortable home for extended cruising in tropical or high latitudes.
Purchased by the current owner as a step up from his previous 18m yacht approx. 5 years ago and subsequently refitted, this privately-owned, non-chartered yacht is now presented for sale EU VAT-paid and Spanish-flagged. Priced sensibly to reflect future refit, EL BAILE represents fantastic value in today’s market.
** Part-exchange (upwards) considered for similar sized more modern performance cruising yachts. Please contact us to discuss. **
Hull, Deck & Superstructure Construction:
- Hull and deck are of composite construction in epoxy matrix using vacuum bag techniques.
- Extensive use of Kevlar has been included for its high mechanical and shock absorbing properties, while close cell foam core adds stiffness to the structure as well as thermal and acoustic insulation.
- All the bulkheads and partial bulkheads are built in composite and fastened to hull and deck using vacuum bag techniques.
- The result of this construction method is a very strong mono- coque structure where each component contributes to the overall strength and relative lightness of the structure of the yacht.
- White Awlgrip painted hull
- White Awlgrip painted deck and superstructure
- Teak laid deck.
Keel & Rudder:
- The keel is designed by Bruce Farr taking advantage of extensive hydrodynamic research experience. Keel geometry shows a bulb and winglets configuration at the bottom end of a steel fabricated fin, allowing for concentration of the 3% antimony / lead ballast as low as possible in order to achieve the required righting moment within a modest draft of 3.6 metres.
- A high aspect ratio spade rudder is built in composite on a corrosion free titanium rudder stock. The rudder stock is hung on two self-aligning bearings.
