Further Comments

US documented vessel. Designed by Andre Mauric, built to rigorous military specs for the French Coast Guard by the world-famous Chantiers Naval L'Esterel shipyard in Cannes, France (do an online search for Chantiers Naval L' Esterel--widely regarded as "the Rolex of wood boats"). Designed and built to operate in any of the world's oceans. Triple-planked old growth African mahogany over English White Oak ribs (stronger than steel!), 6 watertight bulkheads. Completely refit 10 years ago (approx $1 million US) including all new wiring, plumbing, remodeling of living quarters, galley, etc. Re-powered 4 years ago with brand new twin Lugger Marine 750hp turbo-charged marine diesels, approx 1,100 hours ea. Cruises nicely at 16-18 knots, will do 25 knots. 1,100nm range. Fast, stable, dependable. Mini-refit 3 years ago including new props, new rudder assemblies, new 15,000 BTU A/C unit, complete paint job, re-bedding of all deck fixtures, new ports, hatches, etc.(approx. $250k). Just hauled and painted 5/25/10--hull re-painted and new anti-foul paint (Interlux Micron Plus)was just applied. Sleeps ten in five staterooms. Three heads with showers. Master suite features Queen bed and private head with shower. Large galley with tons of storage, full sized propane refer, gas stove/oven, tons of storage. Brand new cushions for settee and pilothouse seats. 24v and 12v systems, new Heart Interface Freedom 30 charger/inverter, and new main engine battery banks. 7kw Westerbeke genset, PUR watermaker, washer/dryer combo, heavy duty windlass, new dinghy lifting boom, dinghy deck cradle, multiple anchors and road, deck and anchor wash system, etc. W&H Autopilot, GPS, VHF, depth, Ratheon 100 mile radar, chart-plotter, etc. 10 person Avon liferaft. Large pilothouse with excellent visibility. Full spec sheet and copy of recent survey available upon request. Would make an excellent live-aboard, research vessel, or dive/charter/eco/adventure tourism vessel. Currently owned by a US non-profit organization. We will be focusing our projects in the S. Pacific for the next five years, so we have decided that a sailboat will better suit our needs. We have her priced VERY aggressively in order to facilitate a quick sale. Boat was surveyed and appraised in 2008 at $1.2 million current market value and $4.5 million replacement value (happy provide a copy of the survey and valuation)! Our low price reflects our need to sell this vessel and acquire the sailboat that we need. This is a LOT of boat for only $175k!!! This boat represents an outstanding value--search any of the boat/yacht classifieds for a 70-90' wood boat and we are far and away the best value out there! Because the vessel was donated to our organization we are able to sell her for a VERY reasonable price!!! We would be interested in trading for a 38'-65' sailboat in reasonable condition plus about $100,000 in cash. We are a fully registered 501(c)3 organization, so we can be flexible with a trade/cash/donation transaction that meets all party's needs.
