Broker's comments

A beautiful classic Ketch designed by Bekebrede, Bloemsma built with a very high quality Anne Wever interior. Offered by the first owner who kept her in perfect condition all this time. She was built to specifications for long blue water crossings, sailing the 7 seas incomfort and safety. With the 4 waterlocks she has 5 watertight compartments making her very safe in case of a collision. All the sails are furling so reducing sail area can be done quick and easy. She can be handled by a 2 person crew on deck. Perfect for the sailor with an ambition to do long blue water passages.
