There are few yachts from this period that maintain their 1920s ambience so effectively with the facilities of the present era. An extensive refit at T Neilson & Co in 2006, applied with full consideration both of her origin as to her usefulness, has kept HALCYON and her teak on oak structure in near perfect condition but with the systems and conveniences of a modern yacht seamlessly incorporated without detriment to her character.
While optimised for northern waters, she is superbly fitted to go anywhere, self sufficient as she is for cruising in comfort for a sustained period. She can therefore operate as a luxury charter yacht, accommodating up to 8 guests for overnight – or 11 guests on a day sail basis - say for corporate charters.
We therefore consider HALCYON an exciting option as a dramatic and unique private yacht or as a commercially viable luxury charter vessel – easier to sail and less delicate than comparable classics of her size, there is a toughness about HALCYON that could earn her the label of classic explorer yacht !
