DANCE SMARTLY, (ex. SHANAKEE) was a breakthrough design in her day and still remains current with the most modern concepts in layout and design. Her original build quality is absolutely of the first order, optimizing the best talents of the Palmer Johnson yacht yard.
Ron Holland was among the first designers to blend superyacht accommodations with serious performance capabilities under sail. DANCE SMARTLY is an early and exceptional example of this concept. The low profile pilothouse offers full, line of sight visibility to the horizon from the raised entertaining and dining settee to port and navigation/communication stations to starboard. This area adjoins the lower salon, which creates a tremendous sense of volume and natural light below.
Her powerful sail plan is easily managed by minimal crew, with full hydraulic sail handling. She’s remarkably light and lively at the helm despite her 130 ton displacement, due to her racing style hull form, bulb keel and skeg hung rudder. In short, this yacht lives like a castle and sails like a dream.
DANCE SMARTLY has had the best of maintenance and refit over the years, leaving her in top condition in all respects. She offers all amenities for gracious living aboard while voyaging all parts of the globe in absolute comfort, safety and style.
