Recognized in many different ports around the world, Mustang has a fame all her own. She was originally built for an experienced American yachtsman. The hull is the well-known, performance hull of Doug Peterson’s Ocean 80 series built at Southern Ocean Shipyard. To incorporate a large lazarette, the boat was extended three feet, then taken for fitting out to world-class Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard. A trailblazer in her day, Mustang is one of a handful of boats in this size and price range that has a true pilothouse---completely enclosed, functioning for piloting and lounging --that also is open to a spacious lower salon. Three staterooms aft for owner and guests, all with ensuite heads plus two cabins and head forward for crew, complete the beautifully finished interior layout.
Though Mustang can accommodate up to four crew, this mini-superyacht can be sailed with two or three sailors. The in-mast furling rig, plus all other standing and running rigging, were completely replaced in 2007. Sails were also new in 2007. During Mustang’s 2012 refit the rig was taken out to service and sails refurbished; the hull and superstructure were painted; the engine was rebuilt, down to the crank shaft; and exterior varnish was stripped and built back up. Decks were new in 2000 so they have more years of life. A walk-in engine room with two entries and a crane for launching the tender are an added benefit. September 2016 Mustang completed her annual yard period. She was hauled to paint the bottom, replace zincs, and service thru hulls and underbody gear, including refurbishment of the bow thruster. Varnish and other routine works were carried out.
Mustang offers the enviable richness of a lovely classic interior in a modern, performance, pilothouse, superyacht. Duty Paid.
