Built for her original German owner to the highest specification by Sparkman and Stephens the current owner is still only her second owner. She is Spanish coded (Lista 6a) with a cruising range of 2000 miles making her a fantastic ocean crossing small ship with enormous space on her 24mm teak decks. The engineering within both the mechanical components and the construction is typically German and very impressive. Rarely does a Yankee type or anything similar become available on the market and this example really has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The current owner has a wealth of knowledge and would happily meet any serious buyer to go through the boat. There are full technical specifications and owners comments available on request. These boat details are subject to contract.
