Something special…..this powerful 68’ cruising yacht from the board of Ron Holland is now on the market. Built by McGaffin Boat Builders of Auckland this famous masthead cutter is as much at home crossing oceans as she is entertaining on the Harbour.
Four Seasons IV is fitted with such a comprehensive inventory of communication and instrumentation that she was three times radio relay vessel for the Sydney – Hobart yacht race. Below she exudes quality with an interior fit out you would expect to find on a much larger yacht. From the high volume bright timber interior to the full standing height workshop/engine room, she feels like a Super Yacht in disguise. No expense was spared in the original build, and much the same can be said
On deck she is easily sailed with a series of electric/hydraulic winches and furlers, with an aft deck that is ideal for entertaining.
Please contact Tim Vine on for further information or to organise an inspection of this magnificent yacht.
