Built in Cyprus, this yacht was bought by the present owner, a very experienced long distance sailor, in 2005. After a refit and change of engine, he has since then covered about 30,000 miles in her, including a transatlantic circuit and multiple passages to and from the Azores and southern Spain. She is in full commission and ready to cover distance again as long as the new owner does not want fancy electronics. The present owner is looking to downsize to a smaller yacht for less long-distance sailing.

Steel cutter for sale

The hull is multi-chine steel, with 6mm bottom plating. The steelwork has an epoxy-tar paint system, with no filler to fair the hull - less pretty but much more practical on a chined hull.


During the 2005/6 refit the present owner stripped out the interior and replaced the original rock wool deckhead insulation with polyurethane foam, and reports that the boat became much cooler in summer and warmer in winter as a result.

The interior fit-out is fairly plain and simple, but strongly built, and the present owner reports
that almost everything can be relatively easily accessed by removing furniture

The engine is under the substantial box by the galley, the top forming additional worktop space. The original engine in this yacht was replaced in 2006 by a completely rebuilt Mercedes OM364 diesel with freshwater cooling. The OM636 is a 4 litre engine used in many hundreds of thousands of large vans and small trucks, and in road-going form is turbocharged.

 

Aft of the chart table is a single quarter berth to port, and
an enclosed aft cabin with small en-suite heads to starboard.

The vent on the coachroof is for a diesel heater in the saloon.

She has an in-mast mainsail, currently not used, as the present owner prefers a conventional mainsail which sets on a track beside the in-mast slot.

The cockpit has solid rails instead of guard-wires

A gantry supports two solar panels

The rudder is essentially transom-hung, on a skeg, with a small hull extension aft of the transom to form a stern boarding step and act as stowage for the gas bottle. An Aries servo-paddle windvane is mounted on the stern

The priorities of the present owner are clear - minimal electronics, heavy ground tackle, windvane steering, and low engine hours (500 hours in 30,000 miles). If you are looking to cover sea-miles fairly fast yet at low cost, this could be the boat for you.
