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 the 25.7 metre Truly Classic 85 superyacht Velacarina.
What is on offer?
Built in 2004 by the Dutch Claasen Shipyards, the 25.7 metre superyacht Velacarina is the culmination of a passion for beauty and sailing, and is part of the Truly Classic 85 range of vessels. She is designed in her entirety by Hoek Design Naval Architects.
Her classic lines and modern systems make her the ultimate in comfortable cruising and since her launch, she has successfully circumnavigated the world over a 3 year period.
She accommodates up to six guests in total over a generous master suite and two custom double suites. Accommodation is also provided on board for a dedicated crew of three.
Why do we think this is such a great deal?
Velacarina can be easily sailed short-handed for long distance cruising, and has proven herself in the regatta scene having won the 2014 edition of the Pendennis Cup. She is elaborately equipped, including full carbon masts and booms, main and headsails 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, and a fold down transom with bathing platform.
She also comes complete with a range of tenders and water toys, including the Avon Seasport 430, diving equipment and a Zodiac 3.2 metre with Yamaha 5hp.
Where is she right now?
Velacarina is located in Palma, Mallorca and is available to view by appointment.

Velacarina is listed for sale by Hoek Brokerage at an asking price of €2,900,000 (VAT paid). Contact Pieter van der Weide at [email protected].
