De Valk France in Antibes has been appointed central agent for the superbly equipped aluminium sailing yacht Joketsu. Built in 2007 by the French shipyard Garcia to a Pierre Frutschi design, this bluewater cruiser combines premium quality and advanced concepts with a wealth of customised features. Joketsu has been maintained in as-new condition and never been chartered.
"The owner worked in close cooperation with the Garcia yard to optimise every aspect of the yacht," explains Moritz Bracht, responsible for the sale at De Valk Yachts France. "He ensured that Joketsu is fully equipped for extended cruises and could easily embark on a round-the-world trip if required. This meticulous approach is clearly seen throughout the yacht, from her large cockpit to the smallest smart gadgets. Thanks to her pushbutton installation, Joketsu can be sailed by one person from the steering position, including setting the sails.
The air-conditioned interior of this 23-metre masterpiece has an atmosphere of modern elegance. Light woodwork and upholstery blend with a finely tuned amount of natural light to create a serene ambiance. The four cabins accommodate eight people in considerable comfort, making Joketsu the ideal family cruiser.
