50 foot Cruising Ketch
One of the best long distance cruising yacht we have seen. She is strongly built for safe and
comfortable passage making and onboard living. Carefully maintained and fitted with modern
equipment. She needs to be seen to appreciate the quality.
Denis Ganley, a professional yacht designer from Auckland, New Zealand, was asked to consult with the owner and his team to turn the vision into reality. The result is regarded as one of Mr Ganley’s best vessels. Professional opinion from within his industry ranks it equally or better than superior yachts of its type with its attractive appearance, gracious lines, reliability, first class equipment and sea comfort.
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. She has proven to be a comfortable, reliable and safe ocean vessel. As a 50.5 ft steel yacht with a ketch rig, she has the ability to withstand severe conditions during ocean voyages and has proven so particularly around the South Island of New Zealand.
