A very special 2010 Ketch designed and built by Alan Young for himself. Built to upper echelon standards and designed as a world cruiser / live aboard that will be the envy of any marina.
A remarkable feature of this splendid yacht is the ability to alter draft from 1.2M to 3.5M making this a real go anywhere ketch.
Built to survey standard the hull is planked in Western Cedar over laminated N.Z heart Kauri frames and finished in 3 skins of structural fiberglass using West System epoxy resin. She took 18,000 hours to build and is undeniably a work of art.
Although 58’ she is easily handled by two with the aid of her Anderson electric winches and rigging configuration.
The salon below is via a few steps from the well sheltered pilot house and not the usual steep ladder, facilitating excellent access under way. Below there is plenty of space and 6’11” headroom. With 16 opening ports and 11 hatches there is plenty of ventilation and natural light. Combined with the Burmese teak which is grain matched and satin varnished and balanced by white painted deck heads offering a very pleasant and special ambience. There are two very accommodating double cabins with en suites. The galley is very secure and proved to be very usable during a long passage in very unfavourable conditions.
The Gardner engine is a work of art itself as well as being extremely frugal and reliable. The engine has been fitted with two 175 Amp alternators and controlled by a sophisticated Smart Charge system. The electrics have been very well thought out using 12 X 2 Volt cell batteries weighing in at 46Kg each delivering a very impressive 1000A/ Hours at 24V 20 Hour rating. The 2500W inverter easily powers all the 240V electrics including the washing machine.
In conclusion one of the best Ketch’s on the market at this time. Highly Recommended.
It must be inspected to truly appreciate all it has to offer.
