Custom bluewater capable schooner – professionally built to a very high standard!This auction is a rare opportunity to purchase a very capable and unique yacht at a very low price. You are bidding to buy so please view beforehand if possible to appreciate the quality and scale of engineering on offer. Please see below for a brief description of what we know of this amazing yacht.Built for her first German owner (believed to be a retired naval engineer) to a very high standard including heavy duty waterproof hatches and storm coversFitted with a Deutz V6 air cooled 60hp commercial spec diesel engine (incredibly tough, good spares availability apparently)Ferro-cement construction for durability (no osmosis like GRP, rust like steel or rot like wood!), heavily overbuilt resulting in approx 24 ton displacementDeep 7.5ft long keel hull form for improved sea keeping, ideal for bluewater/ocean sailingHuge deck space built with very heavy timbers and safe, secure cockpit designStainless steel tapered spars with mast steps, furling headsail and stainless steel standing riggingSails (unknown quantity and condition but believed to be heavy cruising spec slab reefing main, staysail, furling Genoa and topsail, all new 2006)Cooking, heating, water and electrical systems with lots of engineering and versatilityHuge tankage in the form of a 1000L fuel tank, 600L water tank, further 800L water tank not yet connected and holding tankSix winches (two self tailing sheet winches and four halyard winches)Accommodation offering up to eight berths with excellent standing headroom (apx. 6’5 max in many areas) and huge amounts of storage for vitals, gear and spares laid out as a large full width saloon seating area with raised double berth, well proportioned galley and navigation station all aft, with a twin bunk cabin, heads and sail locker/store/workshop forward (this layout could be adjusted to suit future use)Navigation equipment (mostly old but may still work) Although originally constructed for serious go anywhere sailing due to her impressive styling and split layout she could easily be used by an owner/operator for day trips as a business venture, either in the UK or further afield. Her engine was run up earlier in the season and all systems are believed to generally be ready for use but she is offered for sale strictly as seen and so it is best to assume all will need some checking/servicing/repairing/replacing. All photos are recent apart from the engine (poor image quality on recent pic) and picture showing her dried out alongside. She really should be viewed to understand the level of engineering and quality on offer, she is a little ship more than a yacht not to be confused with the usual home completed ferro or steel yachts at this price and would cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to build to a similar spec today! I am listing on behalf of my friend Guy who is less familiar with yachts and ebay. She was purchased by him and a business partner earlier this year, now selling due to change of plans.Little more is known than listed above, and measurements/spec etc are not guaranteed to be accurate so if you are genuinely interested please call 07810 070371 to view. Listed at a bargain price for a quick sale that must be completed before 14th December, cleared funds by bank transfer or cash subject to submitting to a bank for inspection. Currently stored ashore at a marina in Essex for convenient viewing. If not sold, she will be listed with a yacht broker and is expected to be marketed at £30-35,000 depending on professional appraisal.
