This world sailor has unprecedented qualities, designed by Alistair Hunter and built by the Hunt Worth Shipyard on the Isle of Wight.  It is a perfect ship for rough weather, and it has already endured a hurricane without even a scratch. The steel hull has some slight chines in some places and the same applies to the deck, this gives the boat a rounded very strong ”egg-type” self-bearing construction.  Similarly there are hardly any obstacles on deck that can be damaged. After many ocean crossings and long trips, the owner decided to renovate the ship completely. First he dealt with the outer skin and beams: the thinner beams were chiselled and re-inserted and trusses were replaced. After that, the ship was completely sandblasted and treated with 2-component paint which will preserve it for the coming 20 years.

​Furthermore, the entire interior was rebuilt by the yard and the outside cockpit again covered with teak. The layout of the ship remained unchanged, with a nice aft cabin with double bed of 2m x 1.80m, and two settees witch can be converted to beds in the main cabin, also equipped with galley and a centrally located wood stove. The cushions and matrasses are new. Up front is a shower / head and in the bow there is a workplace with storage for tools and spare parts, plus an extra bed. Also, the electrical system has been completely revamped, as well as all the equipment, the tanks and the (SS) anchor locker.



A safe working ship fit for making long trips and living aboard. This remodelled ship can serve for many years as the basis for World circumnavigation.
