[EN] This boat is the realisation of a vision, and the product of sophisticated design and exceptional workmanship. It offers the performance, safety and comfort required to navigate the globe.
Completed in 1997, the yacht has travelled more than 20,000 nautical miles through New Zealand, Australian and Pacific (South, North) waters. In 2005/2006, the second owner sailed her from Australia to the Caribbean and crossed the Atlantic Ocean several times thereafter. The yacht has proven to be a comfortable, reliable and safe ocean vessel. As a 50.5 ft steel yacht with a ketch rig, it has the ability to withstand severe conditions during ocean voyages and has proven so particularly around the South Island of New Zealand.
