Luxurious Classic Schooner Yacht For Sale
This is a custom-built schooner designed for private charters and luxury expeditions.
The schooner's hull shape is typical of the baltic trading schooners however, behind the traditional style this custom schooner is a thoroughly modern and practical sailing yacht, easily handled by a crew of 4, equipped with a 300hp engine, watermaker, and the latest in navigation & satellite technology. Furthermore, with her air-conditioned cabins, multimedia and SCUBA-diving facilities, this schooner has all one needs for the perfect escape at sea.
The schooner was built to high standards, particularly noticeable in its heavy scantlings, high quality tropical hardwoods and practical well thought-out engineering.
The hull is made from Belian. Solid timber is planked onto frames and through-bolted to full-length stringers creating an exceptionally robust vessel.
The underbody is round section full keel leading to a short skeg and full unbalanced rudder. Maximum beam is concentrated just ahead of amidships which is typical of this style of vessel where reserve buoyancy was needed for cargo carrying capability.
Stability experiments carried out afloat under instructions from the architect have indicated a positive stability of 92 degrees, well in excess to that of most commercial vessels.
The sails and rig are classic and well designed with traditional blocks suited for this size and type of boat. She has pleasing lines above and below the waterline. The deck is laid with double timber plank and the deckhouses are of strong and practical construction.
This custom schooner will sail up to eleven knots under sail alone, and with her 300Hp Yanmar marine engine will reach speeds of 10 knots at 1850rpm or 8 knots when run under a more economical power (1600rpm with fuel consumption of approx 24 litres/hour). This coupled with 7000 litre fuel capacity gives her a range of approx 2500 nautical miles under power.
