out and completion.

Oceanographic Research – Underwater Archaeology – Media Platform

last 18 months and now it is time for them to finally get landbased.
A Unique opportunity for the
discerning yachtsman or Woman to acquire this
magnificent lightly used vessel, immediately available for
sailaway and already here in the Caribbean!
INJABULO ( meaning the
feeling of happiness in Zulu) is quite beautiful.
The name certainly resonates when one walks on board. From the design easel of Anton Du Toit, justly famous
for the likes of Ondine, Quo Vadis and the beautiful Balance
line of catamarans comes this sturdy Quest 50 Day charter
cat work MACHINE! Built out of Lloyds spec
epoxy with everything tabbed and laminated in, she represents
excellent value for someone looking for state of the art
design and manufacture that has resulted in the most amazing cat. Fresh from her crossing from
South Africa, her owners plans have changed, so she is now
possibly up for sale.
Some minor unfinished
cosmetics to be taken care of.
Possibly the best deal in a
performance day charter cat around.
Price dropped $50K Joy used to charter out of the
BVI and was thus MCA coded.
She is currently on the hard in Antigua awaiting her new
owners . An opportunity exists for a capable hands on person to recommission her, attend to some cosmetic and other issues to acquire
one of these well respected vessels to put back into charter or
sail down the islands or around world
Maybe with you?
Owners have had a change of business direction from boat
based to land based operations and thus Joy is superfluous to their needs.
These Legendary vessels need no introduction.
This yacht is rather unique in that she represents the
"S" series of the 482, a late in the series release
with hull modifications offering increased sailing performance.
These yachts have proven themselves as "work horses"
of the luxury crewed yacht industry with a very livable cabin
for the crew. She should be seriously considered for worldwide
cruising or commercial charter work. The only significant
difference between the the 482-S and the Newer Privilege 51,
that was introduced in 1995, was an extended transom of 3 feet.
The port side forward bow compartment is dedicated to the
generator. The gen set is well ventilated. The starboard side
bow compartment is dedicated storage, it could also be a good
spot for a dive compressor or tank storage.
One of only 15 built, this OWNERS VERSION has to be the one of
the cleanest example around. Owned by a long time sailor she has been constantly upgraded
and loved. Time for him to swallow the anchor and buy a house in the
islands again so the vessel is for sale.
TWO owners since new. Sails and stack pack bent on for 4 to 5
months of the year and for the rest of the time stored down below.
Never done charter.... ever.
New through hulls and sea cocks December 2016 at last haul.
Will you be the lucky one?
This broker really wishes he was. Having been around a lot of
boats in the last 35 years this model is my 'Forever' boat. More
pics to follow
If you have one grain of salt in your veins you are going to
absolutley LOVE this offering. Click on the video of her sailing
before you go one step further. This glorious classic has just
sailed down from Newport and is now available right here in the
islands. Looking for something to take you around the world and
stir your heart everytime you look at her? Look no further.
At last... a magnificent example of this well loved classic.
You will look long and hard to find one like this.
FROM THE OWNER
The CSY 44’ “Walkover” is well known for
its durability, comfort and classic appearance. Designed specifically
for use in the Caribbean (CSY stands for “Caribbean Sailing Yachts”),
they feature a solid, hand-laid fiberglass hull and deck with no core
to absorb water or to rot. These boats are cutter rigged for easy
sail handling and to provide a variety of sail combinations. All
systems are overbuilt, easy to access and have withstood the test of
time. Although they are heavy for their size, these boats are
surprisingly fast and agile and their strength and weight that gives
them their legendary comfortable ride with the ability to keep moving
when newer and lighter boats run for cover.
DESPERADO is a fine example of her breed. Built in 1977
in Tampa, Florida, she is hull number 23, which tells us that the
building crews had enough experience to do a great job and still had
their enthusiasm. She has lived most of her life doing what she does
best: sailing among the islands of the Caribbean. (In fact, she is
currently located in the heart of the Caribbean, so if your dream is
to have a boat in that area she is positioned to save you the expense
and bother of moving a boat to that location.) She has been lovingly
maintained by a knowledgeable (U. S. Coast Guard licensed Captain)
owner over the past years with many upgrades and improvements, and she
stands ready and able to provide her new owner with years of safe and
OCEAN FLIGHT is probably the cleanest steel blue water cruiser
around. Carefully maintained by her present owner, OCEAN FLIGHT
represents great value for money in a professionally built, well
proven vessel to circumnavigate in style and comfort. With a low
hours Perkins 4-236, new standing rigging, a new paint job and a
gorgeous interior with the latest in electronics,OCEAN FLIGHT needs
little to be circumnavigation ready.<br)
Built by world-renowned cruise catamaran builders
Fountaine Pajot, this trawler type catamaran offers not only
exceptional range and sea-worthiness, but the incomparable space
and comfort afforded by 3 decks. The Cumberland 44's powerful
hulls are fitted with exceptionally large picture windows and an
extremely spacious upper deck offering a sweeping 360 degree view.
Continually maintained and upgraded by fastiduos owners
she represents excellent value for someone looking for a strong
and capable vessel to take them cruising!!
Currently stored out of the water in North Sound Antigua.
An exceptionally clean version of
one of these sort after Owners versions.
Having been owned by one of the
Doyens of the yachting industry in the Caribbean she is as clean
and as gorgeous as you would expect.
He has had an open check book and
sophisticated resources at his beck and call to ensure that she is
as perfect as possible. Now leaving the Caribbean for
colder shores, this vessel is sadly for sale. Will you be the lucky one?
Anyone looking for one of these
machines need look no further.
A very lightly
chartered and very well kept example of one of these sought
cleanest one available. ORIGINALLY by house proud Canadian
marine professionals who use her as their winter home ( and to
prevent boredom) their crewed charter vessel for 5
months of the year....averaging one charter a month... mainly
with friends and charter clients from back home.
Then we sold her to a Boston based Doctor who uses her for his
family and friends and now that his family is getting bigger he
wants a bigger boat!
She has had her
FP warranted bottom job done some years ago.
excellent value for the discerning cruiser looking for a clean
well kept vessel to either putter around the islands on or do
some serious blue water cruising.
We think this vessel represents a rare opportunity to acquire
probably the best kept vessel of her type available today. When we
tell you why, we think you will agree with us.
1) Pretty much all of these four cabin Lavezzi’s and
similar vessels ( Lagoon 410’s etc) were built for the charter market.
2) They have been very successful. By 'successful' read
“well used”….. Around 20 to 25 charter weeks a year.
3) For seven years this means an average of 175 charter
weeks all driven by charter ' credit card' captains / one week
warriors with varying skills levels and thus the bulk of these
vessels have had hard lives.
4) They are ‘phased out’ after their charter lives when
most charter companies just give the bulk of them them a lick
and prayer of varnish and repairs and they are sold on. Some of
the vessels are properly phased out and repaired by some of the
companies…. To be sure. They have however still had their 175
weeks of charter.
5) These vessels have had an average of 5 to 10 days a
year out of the water when they have their annual bottom paint and
repairs done. Time out of the water is far more expensive than
time in the water on a mooring/dock…. Thus charter companies cut
costs and increase profitability for themselves and the owners by
minimizing this hard standing time. It averages a max of just
under 2% of their lives out of the water. Clearly not good for any
glassfibre hull. Few of these ever had the benefit of additional
This vessel was only ever in a charter fleet for three years of
her life…. Far less than the average Charter company contract of 4
to 5 years… (and then into a second and third tier discount
fleets for the rest of their lives from whence they are sold.)
She was bought at three years old by her previous owners ,
picky marine professionals from Canada who have a small charter
company there. She is used as their winter getaway in the islands
where they do around five crewed charters a year only. Every
single hurricane season she has been hauled ( only with a travel
lift… never a crane) and stored on the hard for the entire summer,
whilst they return to reopen their Canadian operation.
So she has benefited from the personal loving care of these
long term marine professional owners who have never let anyone
else captain her…. And it really does show.
The new owner Doctor David bought her and took her North where
she has been his summer Joy .
His family is expanding and he wants a bigger boat!
She has been constantly upgraded and now awaits her new owners
to live on and nurture her.
Aileron 2 spent the first nine years of her life sailing the
inland waters of the Long Island Sound. Of this time she spent
around 6 months a year on the hard in storage and the last two years
out of the water, shrink wrapped. She was then bought by
Canadian Grandparents who have sailed her down to the Caribbean and
used her here for a year. The grandchildren were too young to
sail so they sold her and went back to Canada to be with family.
They sold the boat and then bought it back again!!
Now, once again, it is time to be sold
She has been constantly upgraded and is in good
condition A unique opportunity to acquire one of these well
loved vessels for a great price!
SHE IS CURRENTLY ON THE DOCK IN GRENADA AWAITING YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE
A CLEAN AND UPGRADED VERSION OF THESE WELL LOVED CRUISERS.
Owners have done their two year bucket list sailing sojourn and
now are moving on to other things.
Some lucky owners going to be
able the take advantage of the thoughtful upgrades and go
cruising right away!
There is no need to run the
engine to keep the batteries charged...480 watts of solar panels
and a Silent X wind generator. With 140 gallons of water storage
and 53 gallons of diesel storage, fewer trips needed into a fuel
docks. And davits to make taking the dingy out of the water much
easier when doing passages!
Just relaunched in Grenada and
sailed up to st Maarten where she awaits you ready to go!
Fully commissioned .. sellers
say she just needs you and your clothes!

travel, he used her for the occasional day sail and a home here in

maintenance and is in fully in commission ready to resume cruising.
