Comments

This Sailing vessel is a one-of-a-kind 28 meter yacht. Steel construction, a high bow assures an ocean going ability even under difficult sea conditions. She has been exposed to rough weather and heavy seas in both the Atlantic and the Pacific and went through them like a tank. What makes the design unique is the relatively low keel design which allows to enter shallow bays, which many sailing vessels cannot do. The keel goes essentially along the entire hull length to assure the right balance. She is a relatively fast yacht and develops enough speed to participate in races, a feature that earned her twice the third winning place in the St. Barth's Superyacht "Bucket" Regatta.
 
She has sufficient water and fuel storage to easily cross the Atlantic under engine power alone.
 
Under full sails she is capable of sailing at 12 knots at 16 knot winds. She goes 14 knots at 25 to 35 knots without a problem, depending on ballast and water conditions. Under motor power she cruises at 9 knots across the Atlantic and is capable of going at 12 knots if required.
 
In regard to comfort, her 28 meters of length provide unparalleled space in comparison to other yachts of this size. She has three levels of lounging, relaxing and dining:- in the stateroom, in the Pilot house and on deck. This allows for passengers and crew to find a space of solace.
 
The interior is of the highest workmanship with selected quality interior. The floors and inner panelling is made of teak throughout.
 
The electronics gadgets and toys are of modern technology.
