This vessel is a tremendous opportunity for the right Buyer. She is a very nicely executed ferro-cement construction Blue-Water World Cruiser that is nearly operational & appears to come with virtually everything necessary to complete the job & sail away. Her construction type requires very low-maintenace & is exceptionally strong. She was built with Naval Architect/Surveyor supervision by a professional engineer & crew to a 63' (LOD) sailing vessel design by well-respected Samson Marine Design Enterprises, Ltd. of Vancouver, BC, CAN . All materials & equipment appear to be of top quality as does the quality of her construction & finish. This vessel is virtually new and, although she has never been operated, her design is well-proven by many sisterships and their vast numbers of blue-water sailing miles throughout the World. A very roomy vessel with a 15' 7" beam, she can be expected to be found to be comfortable & sea-kindly. She possesses a host of desirable features which include a virtually new Rolls-Royce 215 HP Diesel Engine mated to a Twin Disc 506 Hydralic Marine Transmission. She has a full keel with cutaway forefoot for stability & fine tracking in a seaway & maneuverability in close quarters with hung rudder & propeller aperature. Additional features include (but are not limited to): Hydraulic Steering (with helms in the ceter cockpit as well as below in the main cabin), New Sails (double foresails are on roller furling), Northern Lights Diesel Auxilliary Generator, Inverter w/Charger system, 16K BTU Air Conditioning, 6' 2"+ headroom, four double staterooms (sleeps 10+ in all), two enclosed marine heads w/Showers (One also has a bath tub), built-in salon seating with cushions & large custom ship's table, Depth Finder, RADAR, Auto-Pilot, New (Unused) Watermaker, large full-width "Great Cabin" aft, large full galley w/ range-oven-refrigeration-ice maker-washer/drier (all appear new) and a great deal more. Although there is finish work to do, the vessel appears to be able to be made operational without a great deal of additional effort; the rig & a large proportion of the interior is complete (incl. heads, staterooms, main salon, galley area) & it appears that she could be lived aboard pretty much as she is. She has been being builkt for the last thirty years or so & was first registered only last year. A tremendous amout of really excellent work has gone into this vessel over the years; the value of which we estimate to have been a multiple of the price at which she is being offered. As mentioned, we consider her to be a wonderful opportunity for the right Buyer.
We believe this vessel represents an excellent value & the ability to retire now (or soon), complete her to your satisfaction & sail off for a great life in comfort & security (Belize, anyone? In Tropical Western Caribbean, English-speaking, UK Protectorate where the cost of living is around 1/2 of USA's, or ...?). All plans, manuals, provenance, etc. supplied with vessel, along with a large quantity of gear & materials. We also note that, owing to her large center-cockpit design & powerful Rolls-Royce Diesel engine, she could easily be finished off as a Motor Sailer with the relatively straight-forward addition of a pilot house or hard dodger. "SUNDANCE" may very well be the answer to your yachting & cruising happiness; there;s a lot of boat here with a lot going for her at a very reasonable price & OFFERS ARE ENCOURAGED!
