Ketch 65 ft Unique and very beautiful ketch rigged sailing yacht with a beautiful line and excellent sailing characteristics. This ship was built in 1997 on behalf of the shipsyard owner himself, for his own use. He wanted a safe and extremely strong ship with very good sailing characteristics. In addition, comfort and space were important. He was very successful in this. The ship has proven itself well, is equipped for long journeys and has made a journey of a few years around the world. The current owners have also made beautiful sailing trips for a number of years. She is easy to operate by 2 man, for example because of the bow thruster, the furling sails and the possibility to hoist the mainsail hydraulically. The last 5 years the boat is, besides small trips, mainly used as a cozy, comfortable and spacious house on the water, with central heating and a beautiful look around from the deck house. Due to the retrievable keel, shallow water can also be sailed which is of course a big advantage. The ship is extremely strong and the sails, the standing rig and the hull can handle all weather conditions. It is a particularly safe ship with its wide gangways, fixed life lines, spacious and sheltered cockpit and excellent sailing behavior. In the decksalon you have a beautiful view all around and you are sheltered from wind and faul weather. A floor lower you come out in the cozy salon with adjoining galley. The after cabin cabn be enterd via the cockpit. An absolutely unique ship.
