Professionally built & beautifully fitted out for the original owners by DeKleer Bros. in Canada, Glory Days has enjoyed continuous upgrading, and an extensive functional and cosmetic refit over the last two years by her current owners, and is designed and equipped for safe, comfortable world cruising. Now in Seattle at NWYachtnet Lake Union Waterfront Office for convenient viewing, Glory Days is a must-see yacht.
The Fraser 51 was designed & built as a no-nonsense, ocean passage-making, performance cruising cutter, constructed and fitted out to very high standards. Systems, equipment & cosmetic appearance have been brought up to date by knowledgeable owners, sparing no expense. Acknowledged on world-famous blue-water sailor/instructor John Neal's list of "preferred" ocean cruising yachts, the Fraser 51 Glory Days is an exceptional offering at a fraction of the prices seen on other "name brand" offshore-capable cruisers.
Detailed specifications and extensive recent photographs follow in this presentation. For an exceptional video presentation of Glory Days be sure to click on the VIDEO tab at the top of this listing as seen on YachtWorld.
