Hull No.52 of the cult-classic Stan Huntingford designed aft-cockpit bluewater ocean cruiser. Extensively updated over past seasons and now well located ready for either Pacific or Caribbean adventures.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Sharing the same hull design as the Passport 42 and Formosa 42, the Slocum 43 is constructed with a more technologically-advised Airex foam core in the hull and a modified rudder design. In total, approx. 60 yachts were built to his hull design between 1981 and 1990, of which a vast majority are the aft cockpit layout found with SURET VI.
Her specification highlights include:-
2019 REFIT (BOAT UNUSED SINCE COMPLETION OF REFIT WORKS)
2015 REFIT DETAILS – NAUTOR SWAN EMV SHIPYARD - BADALONA:
SURET VI has had just three owners since her launch in 1988. The first was an American couple who spent seven years traveling around the world and during all this time they had no problem. The man was very cautious as he bought so many spare parts that I am still using many of them and they are still on the boat. I think I doubled the ship in spare parts and all of them classified and ordered.
The second owner bought it directly from the American when he had finished his trip around the world and brought it to Spain with the idea of making the same trip, but this man had health problems and was never able to start the trip.
It was when we bought the yacht, since she is the ideal boat for the travel project that he had. Our trip was to start in Ibiza, and cross the Atlantic to Martinique, just the two of us, my wife and I.
In 2015 we began our adventure, we left Ibiza, Gibraltar, the Canary Islands, Cape Verde ... Martinique, where we arrived in February 2016 and in the Caribbean, we have been during these years touring this sea and visiting the different islands.
We did periods of about six months there and six at home. During the hurricane period is when we returned to Spain and during that time the boat has been stored in different shipyards and always out of the water. In 2019 we went to Panama with the idea of crossing the Pacific. We were reviewing and preparing the boat for more than two months. When we had the boat ready and the day we launched it into the sea, that same day the Covid 19 epidemic exploded and we had to put the boat back on land and leave the next day for Spain on one of the last planes that left Cartagena.
After these two years at home and with a few more years to go, we do not see the idea of crossing the Pacific feasible and this is the reason why we have decided to sell the SURET.
