In this series of articles, we take a look at the best brokerage deals currently on the market, as judged by our very own editors. What, Why, Where and Who will form the basis of the articles. This week, we have taken a closer look at superyacht Velacarina.
What is on offer?
Launched in 2004 by the Dutch Claasen Shipyards, the 25.7 metre superyacht Velacarina is the culmination of a passion for beauty and sailing. This Truly Classic 85ft ketch boasts naval architecture and design by Hoek Design Naval Architects.
Her classic lines and modern systems make her the ultimate in comfortable cruising yacht and since her launch, she has circumnavigated the world over a 3 year period.
The yacht represents the ultimate example of automated sailing, enabling the yacht to be sailed single handed, from the main deckhouse for example, by using remote controls. She can also be operated by her push buttons during regatta sailing for example, when more crew are on board.
The last regatta Velacarina did, was the 2014 Pendennis Cup and won with flying colours!!
She accommodates up to 7 guests in total over the 2 luxurious masters cabins, 2 custom doubles and a pullman bunk. The standard crew consists of 2.
Why do we think this is such a great deal?
The yacht is an unique find in this size range combined with the offered quality. She is elaborately equipped, including full carbon masts and booms, main and head sails on furling systems, hydraulic sail winches to be reached from the cockpit, halyards on captive winches, hydraulic bow and stern thrusters, recessed dinghy garage on the foredeck, fold down transom with bathing platform and swimming ladder.
Her interior is well laid out, with a nice spacious salon and adjacent galley both with large skylights and hull ports, offering lots of ambient light down below and good visibility of the rigging when under sails for example.
Velacarina comes with a range of tenders and water toys, including the Avon Seasport 430, diving equipment and a Zodiac 3.2m with Yamaha 5hp. The yacht has just completed her 5 year MCA survey including a rig pull and regular maintenance work such as exterior varnishing, antifouling, engine servicing etc,..
The yacht is privately owned, but fully compliant with MCA, coded unrestricted and she is presented in immaculate condition indeed.
Where is she right now?
TC85 Velacarina is currently located in Palma, Mallorca and she is registered to be present at the Palma Superyacht show from 30th of April to the 4th of May 2015.
