Every few years, one of "those" boats comes onto the market.  One that has been extensively fitted out and maintained by an experienced mariner for all-ocean cruising.  One that could easily be mistaken for a nearly-new boat.  One that has so much new and recent equipment that virtually nothing aboard is older than 4 years old.  One that leaves me at a loss for words when I first come on board.  One that will likely sell to one of the first 3 people to see her.

Knowledgeable buyers will recognize that "Antoinette" represents a tremendous value.  There are other yachts on the market that have a substantial amount of new equipment.  But "Antoinette" has been almost completely remade:  wiring, interior finish, teak deck removal, completely repainted, interior overhead, sails, rigging, etc.  And whatever was not replaced was rebuilt to be like new again.  

"Antoinette"  is for sale by her original owners, a couple who both hold a 1600 ton All Oceans Merchant Marine Officer license.  In about 2012, they began to prepare her for a long- distance, multi-year cruise.  With the exception of the hull, deck and mast, virtually everything was replaced:  all wiring and plumbing, tanks, the engine, the generator, all electronics, rigging, sails, canvas, interior cushions, refrigeration, air conditioning, etc.  I should say that a few things remain from the original, such as the signature FD-12 wheel, the polished stainless steel sinks, and the original "Delft-blue" tile galley countertops.

The Flying Dutchman 12 was designed by Eva Hollman of Sparkman & Stevens and built in Taiwan by William Eickholt.  All were very heavily built with oversized fittings, the way they used to build them. "Antoinette" was built by Tayana at their yard. Only about 24 FD - 12's were built and they are well known in bluewater cruising circles.
