LESS 83 is a rare yacht, and represent a great opportunity to purchase a proven oceanic passage trawler. The yacht is the result of a dedicated research by a talented team that achieved what many have promise but few have accomplished: a motor-yacht truly able to sail in any weather for extended period of time in complete safety and comfort at sea. Less83 has great stability with a hull speed of 11.7 knots. The range represents a true oceanic passage and has been calculated to authorize the distance while not burning fuel to carry fuel. The hull design has been carefully calculated to minimize the drag and provide comfortable sea-motion. The original owner will sell Less 83 in order to proceed with the building of the new Oceanic Trawler 100’ from the same architect.
