PRICE REDUCED BY $15,000! If you are looking for a proven offshore "round-the-world" yacht that will safely and swiftly take you and your family anywhere your imagination can wander; then Intermezzo II, will exceed your toughest criteria. Built, owned & cruised for many years by re-known Bluewater Cruisers and Authors, Steve & Linda Dashew, as their Personal Yacht, Intermezzo II is Hull # 1 of the well-respected Deerfoot 62 Series and more recent developmental designs, Sundeer Offshore Cruisers.

Designed by Angelo Lavaranos and built by International Yachts, Ltd. in Cape Town, South Africa, this 1982 Deerfoot 62 Cutter, has a sturdy and sleek Aluminum Hull; purposely constructed with a minimum of bolt-on hardware and every piece of deck hardware possible is welded to the deck or hull to minimize dissimilar metal corrosion and penetrations that would eventually leak. Her interior hull & deck in all living spaces and in the two watertight bulkheads is insulated from the waterline to the deck; providing an effective thermal and sound barrier.

Re-powered in 2003 with a Yanmar 140hp Diesel, this 1982 Deerfoot 62 Cutter has a very versatile and economical Electrical system designed to generate plenty of power with 3 engine alternators capable of outputting a total of 370 Amps and 6 Solar Panels that easily output 240 Watts. Large 12V Gel battery banks are easily charged and maintained ensuring that all the onboard electrical systems, including the two refrigerators and large deep freezer, lights, and electronics, are available when you need them. In August 2016, her bottom was sandblasted, 5 coats of Epoxy Barrier Coat and fresh bottom paint applied, as well as a new cutlass bearing and the feathering Max-Prop was reconditioned. The pitch of the Max-Prop is externally adjustable.

Her Cutter Rig with multiple headsails and all halyards, sheets and control lines led aft to the sheltered cockpit with sheet stoppers and multiple self-tailing two-speed winches, Intermezzo II is easily handled by a couple. She is capable of 200 to 250 miles per day; and easily reaches speeds of 8.5kts to 9kts in only 14 knots of breeze across the deck on a close reach. The Dashews and current owners report that her helm is well-balanced and she is easy to manage, fast, dry and comfortable.

The interior accommodations are spacious yet functional, clean and exceptionally well-maintained. There is a passageway at the bottom of the companionway stairs with one Stateroom on each side, each with bunk beds and generous varnished teak cabinetry and one head with vanity, shower and electric toilet. Forward of the passageway is the Galley, Nav Station, Salon and Dining table; capable of entertaining a full crew and guests. All flooring is varnished teak, and the white and bright ceiling has varnished teak battens that accent the length of this huge area. Forward of the Salon is the Master Stateroom with several hanging lockers, a large double berth with storage cabinets outboard and 6 deep drawers below and a cushioned settee. All the way forward is a private Master Head, with a Bathtub and shower, vanity with sink, several storage cabinets, and an electric toilet. The excellent condition of the interior is testament to how dry this boat is, and how  all three owners have maintained her to a high standard.

Intermezzo II is ready for her next owners and with some additional updating, she will be ready for long distance bluewater cruising again. Her slip at the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina is transferable to the new owner and is an excellent port to spend time getting acclimated to your new boat and has many competent and experience local marine service vendors to help you with any upgrades.  Call today to schedule a personal inspection.
