Superyacht Shenandoah of Sark

The 180-foot Shenandoah of Sark is one of the world’s best preserved classic topsail schooners. Built by New York shipyard Townsend and Downey in 1902, it has survived two world wars, circumnavigated the world three times, and is still revered 122 years after its delivery.

The sailing yacht’s design was heavily inspired by Meteor III , which was under construction at the same shipyard for Kaiser Wilhelm II. Shenandoah began life as a three-masted topsail schooner, though the topsails were removed during subsequent refits and rebuilds.

In 1972, Ballpoint pen magnate, Baron Marcel Bich, rescued the yacht from the French authorities, who had left it to rot for a decade following an unpaid tax scandal. Bich oversaw the boat’s first major restoration, returned her name to Shenandoah , and made her available for charter for the first time.

Modifications over the decades have included the installation of engines—at first gas engines under the ownership of Sir John Esplen at the end of World War One, and later two diesel Lugger engines of 500 hp each, which give the yacht a top speed of 12 knots.

Traveling under sail remains what Shenandoah does best. It was built as a global cruising yacht, though its ability to excel in stiff winds and whitecaps has led to success on the competitive regatta circuit. “When we’ve got flat seas and strong wind, this boat really lifts her skirts,” Captain Russell Potter, who first joined Shenandoah as a deckhand straight out of school in 2002, tells Robb Report .

When Covid hit in 2019, the current owners spent three months aboard with their dogs in Croatia and Greece. After a 24-year tenure, they are looking for the next custodian to take on the reigns of this majestic old lady.

Here are 9 things you didn’t know about one of the world’s most beloved classic sailing yachts.

The Back Story

180 foot sailboat

Built in 1902 at Townsend and Downey shipyard in New York, Shenandoah was conceived as a fast, long-distance sailing yacht for the American investment banker Gibson Fahnestock, who planned to tour Europe in his retirement. Since then, the boat has passed through many owners (including Sir John Esplen), sailed under many names (including Lasca II ), and had numerous celebrity encounters, including a Mediterranean sail with Caroline Kennedy, daughter of JFK. It finally came to be called Shenandoah of Sark when one of its owners went to rename it, Shenandoah was taken. The “of Sark” part refers to an island in the U.K.’s Channel Islands.

What’s in a Name?

180 foot sailboat

Shenandoah (a phrase derivied from Native American languages meaning ‘beautiful daughter of the stars’) is named after the Native American tribe that lived in the Shenandoah Valley in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Virginia. The name is represented by the carved wooden bust of a Native American woman located under the yacht’s bowsprit

Theodore Ferris

180 foot sailboat

Shenandoah is the only yacht to be designed by American naval architect and engineer Theodore Ferris. He is best known for his “Ferris Designs”—the 3,500-deadweight-ton wooden steamships that were built and used by the United States’s Emergency Fleet Corporation during the First World War. Despite his success with Shenandoah , he went on to specialize in merchant vessels, both freight and passenger.

Authentic Interior

180 foot sailboat

The yacht has undergone two significant refits over the years. The first two-year restoration was carried out at New Zealand shipyard McMullen & Wing in 1996. The second, in 2009, included a new interior penned by Terence Disdale, though it remained sympathetic to the original design by Italian designer and architect, Gae Aulenti. The yacht sleeps eight guests in four cabins. This includes the master, which has an office, sleeping quarters for a child, and a bookcase with a secret passageway to the navigation station and the captain’s quarters.

180 foot sailboat

The current owner—a professional musician—adores all things classical, including music, and has fitted a Steinway baby grand piano in the main salon. Many evenings of live concerts are enjoyed on board, though it’s not the only musical connection. Rod Stewart strutted on Shenandoah ’s teak decks in the music video for his 1983 hit “What Am I Gonna Do (I’m So In Love With You”.

Haute Cuisine

180 foot sailboat

The yacht may be vintage, but the food is thoroughly modern. Chef Shay van der Kraan scooped the Heart and Sole award at the MYBA Chef’s Competition in 2022 (sponsored by Robb Report ). Despite having a self-leveling three-piece dining table, the formal dining area is rarely used. Instead, the owners eat in the shade of the cockpit. The cockpit base and brass fittings are original, but the former enclosed glass hardtop was replaced in 2009 with a canvas roof and wind-down windows.

Regatta Glory

180 foot sailboat

The Voile de Saint-Tropez in 2022 was the first time Captain Potter had the chance to “dig out Shenandoah ’s spinnaker and put together a professional race team.” The effort was worth it, as the yacht claimed the 2022 Rolex Trophy, its first ever regatta win. Shenandoah has raced in Turkey, Israel, Greece and Croatia, as well as taking part in the 2001 America’s Cup Jubilee Regatta. Bich also used the yacht as a mothership to his 1974 and 1977 America’s Cup challenges. In race mode, the crew increases from 12 to 22, and the sails are hoisted in a quick 20 minutes.

Labor of Love

180 foot sailboat

Maintaining the yacht’s exterior wood is a labor of love, with one coat of varnish taking two months to complete. “As soon as we finish, we start the next coat, and that’s how it continues,” says Potter. The carved fish heads on the cap rails were added during the 1996 refit, but it was Bich who changed the masts back to wood from aluminum. He also re-rigged the yacht to the original 1902 dimensions, when it had yards (horizontal spars) on the foremast. The wooden helm is another original feature.

The Atlantide Expedition

180 foot sailboat

Shenandoah has sailed around the world several times, but it was also one of the first yachts used for scientific research. After World War One, then-owner Viggo Jarl donated the yacht to Copenhagen University for a 10-month oceanographic expedition along the African west coast. It became known as the Atlantide expedition. The Zoologist Francis C. Fraser, who later became director of the British Museum (Natural History), joined the expedition. It pushed forward scientific understanding of the oceanography and marine life along that coast.

180′ Heesen Yacht Walkthrough [Boat Review + Video]

Take an extensive tour of the 180′ heesen superyacht in fort lauderdale, florida with ryan alexander and thom conboy..

This article is a transcription of the 180′ Heesen Superyacht video from Denison’s Youtube Channel . Tune in daily to discover the latest yacht video walkthroughs from the world’s largest yacht video collection. Watch the full video below:

Good morning, Ryan Alexander here with Denison yachting. If you have been paying attention to what’s happening in the yachting industry over the last year, year and a half, you know that it is insane. And it has been a crazy year plus for Denison and not just in the number of boats sold but a recent explosion in our YouTube followership. So if you are new here, welcome. we are about to roll out some of the bigger walkthroughs that we’ve ever put out on our channel and today is one of those notches in our belt in that it is a day of three firsts. 

Today is a first for me because it is the biggest boat that I’ve shot today at 55 meters. This Heesen is the largest boat that I’ve gotten a chance to take you guys on a walkthrough of and I couldn’t be more excited. Second, we figured that a big boat deserves a lot of attention. So this is the first video that we’re shooting in full 6k with cinema cameras, very excited to show you all of the detail on this boat and this is the first time that you’re going to meet Thom Conboy on the Denison Yachting channel. If you know Thom, wherever he goes big boats follow. So him and I are going to pass things back and forth, we’re going to talk about the spaces on board and we’re going to let you in on the secret that is Motor Yacht – ABBRACCI . 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI profile

Good morning, I’m Thomas Conboy from Heesen yachts. We are on board today Abbracci, 180 foot 2012 steel-hulled aluminum structure motor yacht. We wanted to run through a few things so you have a clear understanding of what a magnificent vessel this is. 

Heesen yachts was established in 1978 by Franz Heesen. And they quickly became the largest aluminum builder in the world. We are on our 198 th  hull. This boat would have been hull about 142. The unique thing about this vessel is she at the time was the largest steel boat that we had built in sheer volume. She is obviously as we said earlier 180 feet in length. She’s a little over 33 feet in beam or width. Her draft from water lying down is around 10-and-a-half-feet. The range at 10 knots is plus 6,000 miles the range at 13 knots is 4,500 miles which gives her transatlantic and trans-pacific capabilities. Her top speed is around 15 knots but she’s a true blue water boat to ride in incredible comfort. Some of the things when you build in northern Europe and specifically at Heesen is that there’s a great deal of time and effort put into the soundproofing. The comfort of the ride and it’s a very solid, great sea boat and as you’ll see this was launched in 2012, you look at the condition is pretty remarkable.

A luxury yacht is more than the furniture selection and it is more than the softness of the beds. The definition of luxury that Heesen goes by is the harmony instilled in each space in its entirety. Every guest area on this yacht shares the same foundational elements of form and function with a keen sense of purpose. This means that as you move from space to space every stateroom, every living area complements the last. From the second that you step on board you can tell how much this yacht is loved and what it represents to her owners and crew and that’s what brings Abbracci to life. This Dutch super yacht has taken her owners to the far corners of the globe and in return has been maintained to the highest degree as the queen of the Abbracci fleet. As you see it a wide teak-finished platform carries along the water line in between the port and starboard staircases that make up her Euro transom. Things back here get interesting, however, when the transom door swings down and into the open position creating a massive swim platform. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI beach club

When at anchor, this area is set up with a large area rug beneath any configuration you’d like such as these four teak deck chairs and oversized hanging umbrella. The size of this platform means that you have plenty of space for every guest onboard to spend time together in the sun. In the event that you’re out exploring the islands and on the hook all of the water toys will be in the water. But when you’re underway or back on the dock, all of those toys need a place to live and Abbracci’s garage couldn’t be more capable or convenient. Just some of the toys stored in here are four personal watercrafts, two Yamaha jet skis and two wave runners. There’s also room for four stand up paddle boards, three or more sea bobs, wake board and ski equipment as well as all of the fishing gear you need to deck out a serious toe tender. You’ll have to use your imagination with how open this space is when all of the water toys are removed and the garage is converted into a beach club. When in this configuration you have unobstructed access to a cedar finished sauna on the port side. Directly forward of the sauna is a dayhead. Immediately forward of the garage is the engine room which Tom is going to walk you through. 

We’re now entering the engine room coming from the beach club and as you will see this is a pretty complex engine room, typical northern European. The engines are the MTU engines, 12 cylinders they’re approximately 1324 kW or about 1,800 horsepower. These particular engines will propel the boat about 6,000 miles at 10 knots with a fuel capacity of 33,000 gallons. If you go up to 13 knots then the range drops down to 4,500 miles. Again, giving you a trans-pacific or transatlantic capability. On your right-hand side or the middle of the engine room you have your air conditioning compressors, you have your hydraulic system which controls the stabilization and cranes. Further into the depth of the engine room here, this manifold system that you see through here is all of the bilge which takes the sea water out of the bilge. It also has a fire system that can take seawater from the sea to fight a fire. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI engine room

As you continue through here in the engine room, over here you have an oily water separator. It separates oily bilge water, so it can be dispersed of easily. Through here you have your sewage system called [7:25] system. And then you move on here, it’s a shore power converter. What this does is it takes any shore power that’s on any dock wherever it is in the world and it cleans it and puts constant continuous power into the vessel. Over here on the port side of the engine room, we have the fuel system manifold and purification. So for example this particular unit here takes fuel when you bring it on board and spins it or purifies it. So if you’re say in a third world country and getting not such good fuel this cleans it before it goes into the tanks and or most importantly before it goes to the engines. This is all the different manifold systems to move this fuel around and there are 33,000 gallons of fuel as we’ve previously stated. 

Coming after the engine room here this is getting into your whole fresh water system. Here obviously are water heaters not unlike what you see in your home and back in here, this is all of the different where the water is going to. and one of the most significant things about a boat is you’re not where you can just get fresh water like you can at your home, so we have reverse osmosis water makers. What that is is basically it takes seawater passing it through long membranes at about 800 PSI, then you have a UV and charcoal filter so it comes out as some of the best purest water. You have major exhaust fans, you have air that’s actually pushed in and then it’s exhausted out, so you continually have a flow of new fresh air coming into the engine room. Additionally, you have these large compartments here that are sound shields housing a 175 kW kilo pack generator that deals with all the electrical requirements of the vessel when it’s at sea and or anchor. There are two of these as they alternate from day to day and then there is also an emergency generator of 85 kW that’s located forward and well above the water line. 

The starboard walkway is primarily for guests as it leads forward to the formal entry into the main deck foyer and then beyond to the bow. The floor-to-ceiling glass door that gives you access to and from the side deck is hydraulic. In addition to the stunning cap rails, a detail that you likely wouldn’t notice from just looking at the profile are the glass cutouts in the gunnels emphasizing Heesen’s desire to create a view whenever possible. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI main salon

One of the most stunning uses of glass is found in the salon which is located immediately forward of the aft deck. This is where we get our first look at the 858 gross ton volume of the interior of this Dutch super yacht. In all the salon itself is over a thousand square feet and has a spacious layout. Upon entering you’re welcomed by a greeting area adorned with blonde veneers and cream-toned stones that double down on the bright and airy feel of every interior guest space. Located in the aft section of the salon is a wet bar off to the port side complete with a hidden sink, a refrigerator and an ice maker. Immediately forward of this is the living area of the salon arranged with inward-facing seating this is the ideal space for formal entertaining or for adventure cruising in colder climates. Also found here is a high-low TV which is controlled by an iPad that ties into the yacht’s Creston media control system. We’ll touch on the system later when we’re up in the wheelhouse. Moving forward of the living area, we next arrive at the formal dining space that’s encircled by cabinet storage. There’s seating for 12 around an oversized dining table giving a whole new meaning to family-style meals. 

So now we’ve just entered the dining area which is right off of the main salon and we’ve previously talked about the shell material of the vessel. Now we’re going to talk a little bit about the interior materials. The interior designer was Omega Frank Lautman based in the Netherlands. He’s done quite a few boats for us. The idea here with the client was he wanted a very spacious but very light interior and no two Heesen have ever been built with the same interior. So everything truly is one of a kind and typically custom one-off. There’s a great deal of Anna Gray which is an African hardwood with about a 70 sheen on it. you’ll see an inlaid mother of pearl in this particular table, the stone is an example between the Onyx and the marble and granite depending on the interior designer’s choice, can be anywhere from 600,000 euros to 1 million euros just for the stone. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI dining area

There’s an electric door to port in here that connects the formal dining room with a large service pantry which welcomes you into the galley segment of the yacht. In this stew’s nook is a sink, dishwasher, ice maker and a Miele microwave convection oven. And then a little further forward around the corner is the first bit of refrigeration that sets Abbracci up for success when on the water for weeks on it. 

Continuing forward brings us into the main part of this yacht’s professional galley. The cooking appliances in here include a six burner Gaggenau induction cooktop which rests above the first of three ovens in the area. These cooking appliances and more are directly below a large stainless oven hood and a fire suppression system. Beyond the cooking appliances is plenty of refrigeration where you keep things that the chef needs on hand immediately and there’s also a walk-in refrigerator and deep freezer offering additional crucial cold storage. Looking towards the port side in the galley we see a sink and a second dishwasher as well as the companion way that offers you access down into the crew quarters. We’ll revisit the area where the crew stays in just a little while. Now tom is going to take back over where we left off in the formal dining area as he takes us into the main deck foyer.

So as a point of interest on how these boats are built they’re built to a very high level of classifications. You have Lloyds that deals with the structure, you have MCA and LY3 which deal with more of the interior safety issues and fire issues and it’s quite complex how these boats are built and the level at which they’re built. I’ll give you a great example. If you take a look at this door, with this and some of the bulkheads or all the bulkheads are meant to contain a fire for up to an hour. Between the Lloyds with the shell and the MCA and LY2 this is built truly to the highest standards that we have in the marine industry today. 

I’m going to take back over for a few minutes and show you around the guest accommodations onboard, beginning with the on deck master stateroom. The first part of the owner’s suite you come to upon entering is a study or an office. This is a private escape where you can get away for a few hours of work or end your day when you have guests on board. This office also creates a buffer between the main deck foyer and the master stateroom itself. In addition to the desk and organization found in here, there’s a comfortable low profile couch along the aft bulkhead and a TV on a lift that can be revealed at the touch of a button. This brings us into the sleeping accommodation which is unlike anything you’ve seen on a yacht walkthrough that I’ve gotten to take you on. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI master suite

The most defining characteristic of the owner’s suite is its use of the full 33-foot-4-inch beam. This footprint offers you a vast circular stateroom where everything is laid out around a forward-facing king berth. The ceiling above the bed has been designed to mimic the sky overhead and thanks to all of the natural light pouring in, the reflections in here make for a stunning experience. not only is there an abundance of natural light but there’s accent lighting in all of the right places like under the bed. There’s also a separate vanity located over to the port side, which is a dreamy spot to get ready for a night out on the mainland. There are a handful of seating options in here and there’s a ton of storage that you don’t see at first glance, such as this closet space behind radial cabinet doors. 

The master stateroom is 1,100 square feet when you combine the living area and the office. But to me the most outstanding thing about the master are the windows that you see on either side of the space. There are two sets of blinds so if you want to black out the room you can or if you just want to add a little bit extra privacy you can but the coolest feature is that these doors at the touch of a button hydraulically open on both sides. The master stateroom’s ensuite is stunning and spacious rivaling what you would find in any luxury hotel. Some of the most important aspects of this area are the oval tub where you can take your time and the adjacent shower stall. In all, the ensuite has a footprint of just under 150 square feet. Leaving here let’s head aft into the main deck foyer and then down the central staircase. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI main staircase

When you make your way to the bottom of the spiral staircase you arrive in the lower guest companionway. from here you have five options, sixth I’ll tell you about in just a minute, you have a pair of queen cabins forward, a pair of twin cabins that are mirrored and all the way aft is the VIP which we’re going to take a look at first. 

Upon entering the superbly finished full-beam VIP you first see a king berth that’s flooded by natural light through large hull side windows. Again, note the blonde finishes in here that make it feel alive and refreshing. it’s in an environment like this that you can take a seat at the desk below the hull side windows or just hang out in bed with a good book for an extra hour. Storage in here is found centerline and is made up of two hanging lockers. These are right outside of the ensuite. This VIP ensuite is 116 square feet and features a full-size tub and vanity along the port side. Leaving the VIP and heading forward, our next stop will be a pair of mirrored twin staterooms. In addition to the beds, features found in both of these cabins include hanging storage, TVs and private ensuite heads. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI guest suite

Another set of mirrored cabins is found as you make your way even further forward in the lower companionway. These double cabins are laid out around queen berths and have all of the same features that we’ve seen in the other lower accommodations with the addition of dressing areas below the TVs. 

When we first came down to the lower guest companionway, I said that there were six options. From here I’ve shown you the first five which are the guest accommodations but directly behind me we have access directly into the crew quarters or rather the crew has direct access into these guest staterooms. And the special thing about this is it allows you to change sheets to do laundry and you can pass directly back and forth in between the crew area and the guest space. Entering you first step into the crew mess where the majority of the crew’s downtime is spent when guests are on board. Another key aspect of this part of the yacht is that this is where the laundry center is located with three Miele washers and dryers in a separate laundry room. In all, Abbracci sleeps 14 crew in sizable cabins primarily with bunk layouts and private ensuite head and showers. 

Having covered the entirety of the lower deck and main deck, our next stop is the bridge deck. This is where we’ll really see all of the advantages that come with a super yacht of this size and pedigree. The first area to point out is where all of the aft seating is located. Back here, there are three bench seats and a pair of teak chairs which are arranged around teak cocktail tables. The primary use for this space is located just forward at the massive alfresco dining table with a satin finish. And then making this a great entertaining area, there’s a wet bar and service area to port. Found over here is a sink and a plancha grill. And there’s also a stainless ice maker and refrigerator that’s located below the countertop.

When Heesen was designing and building this yacht, it was a primary focus to make sure that the exterior and interior spaces had seamless flow as you move throughout them. This is something that stands out as we enter the sky lounge. Upon entering this light-flooded space is stunning both because of her full beam layout and how diverse it is. This is an area that gets used all of the time as it offers you a less formal version of the experience offered in the lower salon. This is thanks in part to the inviting seating to starboard where there are four overstuffed armchairs and a comfortable love seat that form a conversation pit. When it comes to movie night up here, you have two options depending on what kind of viewing experience you want to have. The first is a high-low TV located outboard on the port side. And then the second option is a larger projector screen that drops down in front of the TV and the projector which is revealed from the overhead. As you might expect there’s also a wrapping wet bar forward into port with seating along the outside. Looking behind the bar, you’ll see that the appliances include a sink an ice maker and a refrigerator. There’s also plenty of storage for stemware and the surrounding cabinets and cool marble flooring underfoot. Found forward of the bar is an electric pocket door that opens to reveal a service area where the crew can get their tasks out of the way behind the scenes. 

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI pilothouse

As we follow tom and leave the sky lounge heading forward on the starboard side is a dayhead that you pass on your way into the pilothouse. We arranged the pilothouse here on Abbracci. One thing that’s different about custom yachts is that you have a nice lounge area for guests and owners to sit up here have a lunch, a cocktail while seeing operation of the boat. All of this equipment that you see has a different function from communication with the outside chart system, navigational equipment, engine controls, autopilot, most important communication with the engine room and the engineer. What it does basically works in harmony with the engine room. This over here is the communication within the boat as far as all the cabins and every area of the boat. All of these screens which there are five of them that you see, can be interchanged to whatever you want to bring up on. Here you have a radar, you can have depth sounder, you can have charts, you have the Tyson panel which monitors all internal bilge pumps engine functions, air conditioning every piece of machinery in the boat. You have security cameras when you’re at anchor and or when you’re at the dock. The Sperry autopilot here is an example is that once you’re set a course, put it on a heading this keeps it on the heading literally steering the boat. Virtually this boat can go anywhere in the world operating incredibly safely with no assistance from anything else. 

Aft of the wheelhouse we have this IT space. This is where all of that cabling that you’ve seen in the engine room that you can’t see hidden behind the walls, it is where it all leads to. In here you have full control over the entertainment systems and more this is a pretty great spot if you just want to sneak away for a minute. Catch up on the score of the Lakers game. Over here in this cabinet you see that all of your wiring matrixes are readily available. The reason that this is important is sometimes if you’ve got guests on board they can’t figure out how to work their TVs, you don’t have to run back and forth to see what’s going on. You can bring up on this monitor right here, what’s going on on every single TV screen to help you troubleshoot the problem. Another great feature of this boat is it has a kaleidoscope system. In this brain right here you have access to tens of thousands of movies and shows. Each of these units wires it directly to the TV found in the cabins below. And you also have the matrix for your Creston system. This lets you control all of the lights, blinds in each room. And then in this cabinet right here, you can see all of the direct TV receivers, every TV has its own receiver you won’t have any issues staying connected when you are out on the water.

Wrapping up in the wheelhouse, let’s now follow Tom outside and onto the bow which is the next area we’re going to take a look at. Up here teak decks carry all of the way forward on an area of the yacht that’s primarily used by the crew on this size vessel. The first important piece of equipment up here is a Hydromar marine crane with the capacity to lift over 2300 pounds. This is positioned to lift a tender off the bow over either side of the yacht. But rather than carry a tender, this space is left open so you can arrange deck furniture in the area in the event that you want to. Located right next to the davit, are this yacht’s life rafts. The foredeck has a split configuration in which the anchoring system is located on the lower level forward of the davit. These two commercial windlasses raise and lower a pair of Danforth anchors that offer you peace of mind once they’re set. Something I’d like to point out is how maneuverable this Heesen is. At 180 feet, the slip that we were in this morning gave a rather narrow window for getting out due to the size of the surrounding boats and a really sharp turn into a narrow canal. This super yacht thanks to both an experienced captain and powerful bow thruster made getting out of a tight spot look easy. 

Abbracci is a remarkably dry boat thanks to the trademark Pelican Beak bow that cuts through the waves. This design also provides a quiet and soft ride when this long-distance displacement explorer is out in rough seas. When it comes to her exterior design, this 180 foot Heesen has near-perfect proportions considering her size. This is a very real challenge that gets harder and harder to pull off the longer that a yacht gets and is something that has earned Heesen a ton of respect across the industry. 

I love all of these slightly radial lines that pass forward and aft and how these long curves give her a timeless look. These lines also hint at the volume that you find on the interior which is something that you likely noticed throughout. 

Wrapping up on the bow leads us with one final deck to cover as we come closer to the end of today’s walkthrough – the upper deck. The sundeck offers a versatile set of options for guests staying on board Abbracci. There are three distinct areas that make up the sundeck the first of which is the outdoor portion that’s located all the way aft on the upper level. The most obvious feature up here when you have a bird’s eye view is a massive sunpad that faces aft. On the forward side of the sunning area there’s a bench seat that’s part of a larger seating area all three of these built-in seats are great options for cocktail hour on the hook because of the wind protection and the shade that’s offered by the hard top overhead. 

From here looking up you get a real sense of an Abbracci’s size as you get a glimpse of the radar mast. Found up here are the radars that keep her captain in the know as well as the three domes to keep the yacht connected with phone and TV service when you’re away from the dock. Directly forward of the sundeck is an enclosed spa and gym area that’s an essential part of this super yacht’s over-the-top lineup of amenities.

180' Heesen Motor Yacht ABBRACCI gym

On the starboard side is a vanity head and shower that are connected to this yacht’s steam room which is finished with elegant stonework. Directly across the companionway from here to port is a blissful massage room where you can spoil yourself and unwind. Continuing forward brings us into the climate control gym. This design offers you privacy with the option of opening up the actuated doors on both ends and letting in a cross breeze. In here is all of the exercise equipment that you need to push yourself and escape the pampering that takes place in virtually every other inch of the season. 

Wrapping up in here, the final stop on today’s walkthrough is the Jacuzzi deck located immediately forward of the gym. Under the open sky this is where we find a custom mosaic spa pool with sunpad on either side. The size of this deck and the tub itself makes it possible for you to spend time with eight or so of your family and friends as you finish your day in the lap of luxury.

10 Best Used Cruising Sailboats

  • By John Kretschmer
  • Updated: May 24, 2024

The appeal of offshore voyaging is difficult to explain to land people who can’t imagine life without basic human rights like copious quantities of hot water and unlimited data. It can even be challenging to explain to fellow sailors who think the notion of spending days or weeks at sea is a form of water­boarding, some kind of self-inflicted torture.

But for those of us who understand, who relish intimacy with the untamed wilderness that is the ocean and embrace self-­reliance and individual expression while accepting the ­dispassionate whims of Neptune, this is the good life.

There are two essential truths about this life: One, money does not matter. Cruising budgets and lifestyles reflect bank accounts with variously positioned commas; it’s the passages and landfalls that add up, not your investment portfolio. And two, a good bluewater sailboat — not necessarily an expensive boat, but a well-­designed, solidly built, imminently seaworthy boat that is only limited by your moxie and imagination — is the key to successful bluewater passagemaking.

– LEARN THE NAVIGATION RULES – Know the “Rules of the Road” that govern all boat traffic. Be courteous and never assume other boaters can see you. Safety Tip Provided by the U.S. Coast Guard

So, to that second point, I’ve compiled a list of interesting and affordable cruising sailboats for serious voyaging. A list of 10 sailboats for any purpose, much less world cruising, is sure to evoke outrage from strong-minded sailors, who by nature tend to be a bit opinionated. Stand by before hurling insults my way, and let me explain. I have decided to stay away from the sailboats we know by heart, the iconic old boats that usually populate a list like this: the Westsail 32, Tayana 37, Shannon 38 and Valiant 40 (the last of which, with a bit of searching, can still be found at or just below $100,000).

My list of some of the best liveaboard sailboats is eclectic and includes a mix of well-known and obscure manufacturers, but all the boats are linked in three ways: All are top-quality vessels capable of crossing oceans. They’re affordable, although in a few cases you have to look for older models in less-than-stellar condition to stay below $100,000. Indeed, in some ways, this list of used sailboats is a function of age; most of the boats were priced at more than $100,000 when new but have dipped below our self-imposed threshold in middle age. And finally, they’re all boats that I have encountered in the past few years in far-flung cruising destinations .

Island Packet 35

Packet 35

Love them or loathe them, Island Packets are everywhere. To some, the beamy, full-keel, high-freeboard hull designs seem quaint, to put it charitably. To others, the robust construction standards, roomy interiors and overall user-friendliness make them the ideal cruising boat. More than most, sailing vessels are compromises, and Bob Johnson and his crew at Island Packet were brilliant in prioritizing the needs of sailors. The IP 35 was introduced in 1988 and features a huge cockpit, an easy-to-handle cutter rig with a jib boom, and a clever, comfortable interior with the volume of many 40-footers. It might not be the fastest boat upwind, but the long waterline translates to good performance off the breeze, meaning the IP 35 finds its stride in the trade winds. In all, 188 boats were built before production stopped in 1994.

Don’t confuse the IP 35 with the IP 350, which was launched in 1997 and included a stern swim step. You won’t find a 350 for less than $100,000, but you will have a choice among 35s, especially those built before 1990. With two nice staterooms, the 35 is ideal for family cruising. I know of a couple of 35s that have completed the classic Atlantic Circle passage. It’s perfect for a sabbatical cruise because it holds its value and there’s a ready market when it comes time to sell.

There’s no room for discussion: Catamarans are crossing oceans, and many sailors are choosing cats for world cruising. My last visits to the Azores and Canary Islands, the classic Atlantic waypoints, proved the point. I’m not much of a statistician, but by my count, at least a quarter and maybe a third of the boats I saw were catamarans. There would be more on this list, but they are just too expensive. Finding a quality catamaran for less than $100,000 is tough. One boat to consider is the classic workhorse multihull, the Prout Snowgoose 37.

When the Snowgoose 37 was launched in 1983, English builder Prout & Sons had already been in business for nearly 50 years. The 37 was an updated version of the Snowgoose 35, one of the most successful cruising cats ever. In 1986, the 37 was updated again; the Snowgoose Elite model included more beam and interior upgrades. These models are challenging to find for under $100,000, but it’s possible. A quick glance at yachtworld.com shows several of both models available for less than $100,000. Again, the strong dollar makes European boats an excellent value.

The Snowgoose 37 is not sexy like go-fast cats, and not roomy like modern cruising cats. It is, however, seaworthy. Of the 500 built, many have circumnavigated. Older boats have solid fiberglass hulls, and more recent models are solid glass from the waterline down and cored above. The cockpit is rather compact by catamaran standards, and the bridgedeck is solid (no tramp). Many 37s and all Elites were rigged with staysails, a big plus in heavy weather. The masthead-­rigged Snowgoose 37 can be sailed like a monohull offshore, and it’s quite nice not having a huge, roachy mainsail to wrestle with in a storm. With a 15-foot-3-inch beam for the 37 and a 16-foot-3-inch beam for the Elite, it’s easy to find affordable dockage and yards for haulouts. Most boats have three double cabins, making the Snowgoose 37 an ideal family cruiser.

Corbin 39

The Corbin 39 is not as well known as it should be. It’s a capable bluewater sailboat cruiser with many impressive voyages logged. My Quetzal spent several weeks moored alongside a handsome 39 in Corfu that had sailed around the world, and I also spent a winter in Malta in the same boatyard as another 39 that had recently crossed the Atlantic. A canoe-stern, flush-deck pilothouse cutter, the 39 was offered with either an aft or center cockpit. Designed by Michael Dufour and constructed by Corbin les Bateaux in Canada, hull number one was launched in 1977. Built in various locations in Quebec, 129 boats were launched before a fire destroyed the deck tooling in 1982. A new deck with a larger cockpit was designed, and 70 more boats were laid up before production ceased in 1990.

The rub on the Corbin 39 is that the majority of boats were sold as kits with owner-­finished interiors. Kits varied from just hull-and-deck to “sailaway,” with everything fitted except the interior. Only 15 boats were finished at the factory. Not surprisingly, the interior quality is unpredictable, from rough-hewn lumberyard specials to beautifully handcrafted gems finished by marine professionals. The difference is reflected in the price. A nicely finished, well-equipped model from the mid-’80s typically sells for between $60,000 and $80,000.

The hull shape features a long fin keel and skeg-mounted rudder. The hulls are heavily laid up and include Airex coring. Early decks were plywood-cored, but most boats have Airex in the deck as well. Ballast is 9,000 pounds of internal lead, translating to a 40 percent ballast-to-displacement ratio. The wide flush deck is spacious, and the sleek pilothouse usually includes inside steering. Massive double anchor rollers are incorporated into the bowsprit in later models. Most boats include a double-­spreader spar, and almost all were set up as cutters. There’s plenty of freeboard, which becomes obvious below. While interior arrangements vary considerably, there’s a lot of room to work with. I prefer the post-1982 aft-cockpit 39s; they’re generally of a higher quality than earlier boats.

Cabo Rico 38

Cabo Rico 38

“The Cabo Rico 38 hull shape is the one in which everything came together best,” wrote Bill Crealock in his design notes. He might have changed his mind later in life, considering that the Cabo Rico was introduced in 1977 and he designed many boats after that, but few will dispute that this 38-foot cutter, built in Costa Rica, is flat-out beautiful. From the clipper bow to the sweet sheer to the abundance of honey-colored teak, the Cabo Rico 38 is a boat to inspire the most practical among us to quit their job, buy this vessel, and head for the South Pacific.

Not surprisingly, many people have done just that. Cabo Rico built 200 full-keeled 38s, with most of the production occurring in the 1980s. There’s always a selection of boats for sale for less than $100,000. Cabo Rico was an outlier among manufacturers of the time, building serious cruising boats in Central America instead of Taiwan, but quality control was always excellent. The full keel is slightly cutaway, and the rudder is attached to the trailing edge. The prop is in an aperture and totally protected, but not well suited to backing into a slip. Full-keel boats may make some younger sailors cringe, but the CR 38 has a very soft ride in rough seas and heaves to effectively. It also has a solid fiberglass hull with a layer of balsa for insulation. Sometimes it’s noted that the hull is balsa-cored, but it’s not. After about hull number 40, lead was used instead of iron for internal ballast. The deck is balsa-cored, however, and there’s a substantial bulwark. Items to be wary of are the teak decks (most 38s have them) and the fittings supporting the bobstay.

A true cutter rig, the 38 has just under 1,000 square feet of working sail area and performs better than most people suspect. The staysail was originally set on a boom that cluttered the foredeck and limited sail shape. Many boats have been converted with furling staysails sans the boom — a nice upgrade. When the wind pipes up, the 38 tracks nicely with a reefed main and staysail. I encounter 38s all over the Caribbean. They’re easy to spot; they’re the beautiful boats in the anchorage.

Tayana Vancouver 42

Tayana Vancouver 42

Ta Yang, builder of Tayana sailboats, has been building capable cruising boats forever, it seems. The Robert Harris-designed Tayana Vancouver 42 has been a mainstay of the serious cruising fleet since the day it was launched in 1979, and is still in demand today. The company built 200 boats, mostly in the ’80s and early ’90s, although a few V42s were built into the 2000s. With a bit of digging and some haggling, you can find boats for less than $100,000, but they’re likely to be older models. As of this writing, yachtworld.com has eight V42s listed, with three asking less than $100,000.

I’ve encountered the V42 all over the world, and in my yacht-delivery days, I had the pleasure of delivering a couple of 42s up the East Coast and down to the Caribbean. The double-ended hull shape with a fin-skeg underbody is stiff and seaworthy, if not wickedly fast. Considering the rugged construction, with a solid fiberglass hull and balsa-cored deck, nobody has ever accused Ta Yang of going light on its boats. Ballast is internal iron, a massive single casting that weighs in at 11,800 pounds. Ta Yang has evolved as a builder, and later models included upgrades like vinylester resin and larger Yanmar diesels.

A true cutter, the V42 has a double-spreader rig and is heavily stayed. The seagoing deck is cambered to shed water. Teak decks, with all their virtues and vices, were common; I’d look for a boat that’s been de-teaked. Like the Corbin 39, the V42 came with either a center or aft cockpit, although most boats were aft-cockpit models. The aft cockpit is deep and secure, if a bit tight due to volume sacrificed by the canoe stern. The center cockpit is cramped but offers excellent visibility. The interior is lovely, with exquisite Taiwanese joinery. Although interior arrangements vary because Ta Yang encouraged owner input, across the board, this is a friendly boat for living aboard. The aft-cockpit model includes one head and a traditional layout with excellent light and ventilation. The center-­cockpit model features a large owner’s stateroom aft.

Wauquiez Pretorien 35

Wauquiez Pretorien 35

The Pretorien 35 does not pay homage to tradition. The Euro-style low-slung wedge deck and flattish lines were thoroughly modern when the Pretorien was launched in 1979. Sure, there are IOR influences in this well-proven Holman & Pye design, including a slightly pinched stern, cramped cockpit, and a high-aspect, short-boom mainsail that results in a large fore­triangle. But a small main is easy to handle offshore, especially in squally conditions, and a large poled-out furling genoa provides a low-stress way to cross oceans. The test of a design is revealed long after the launch, and the Pretorien has aged brilliantly. It’s often mistaken for a Swan or Baltic. Famed voyager and author Hal Roth chose a Pretorien for his last boat.

Below the water, which is what really matters at sea, the Pretorien pushes the right buttons for serious sailing. A fine entry provides enough of a forefoot to prevent pounding in lumpy conditions, and as on the Valiant 40, the fin keel incorporates a stub to which the external ballast is fastened. The rudder is mounted well aft for excellent steering control, especially on a deep reach, and is tucked behind a narrow but full-length skeg. The Pretorien displaces 13,000 pounds, of which 6,000 pounds is ballast, translating to a stiff, seakindly boat.

The construction is superb. The solid fiberglass hull includes longitudinal stringers that stiffen the panels and encapsulate the bulkheads. Tabbing and fiberglass work is first-rate throughout. Wauquiez was one of the first builders to use solid laminate beneath high-load deck fittings. The side decks are wide and, with the chainplates well inboard, easy to navigate. The interior arrangement is conventional, but ample beam amidships helps create a surprisingly spacious feel below.

There were 212 Pretoriens built during a seven-year production run, so there’s usually a good selection of boats on the used market. Today’s strong dollar makes European Pretoriens an excellent value.

Gulfstar 44

Gulfstar 44

Gulfstar had a terrible reputation in the early ’70s: It was infamous for producing wide-body motorsailers with tiny rigs and chintzy Formica interiors. Company founder Vince Lazzara was adept at reading market trends and upped his game in the late ’70s and ’80s. Lazzara, who also founded Columbia Yachts, was a veteran of the production-­sailboat wars and realized that buyers were demanding high-quality boats that sailed well. The Gulfstar 44 was launched in 1978, and 105 were sold before the company started producing the Hirsh 45 in 1985.

Some mistake the G44 for a Bristol, and it has a similar profile, right down to the teak toerail and raked cabin trunk. A sleek center-­cockpit design, the hull shape features a 5-foot-6-inch fin keel, a skeg-hung rudder and moderate proportions. I know the boat well, having delivered one from Bermuda to Annapolis and another from Fort Lauderdale to Boston. It has a nice ride in lumpy seas and powers up when the big genoa is drawing on a reach. The construction is typical of the time, with solid fiberglass hulls and cored decks. Gulfstars were known to blister, and it’s likely that any 44 you find will have had an epoxy bottom job along the way — and if it hasn’t, it will need one. The keel-stepped spar has an air draft of 55 feet. Some owners have modified the sloop rig with a staysail. The cockpit is roomy, especially for a center-cockpit design, although there’s not much of a bridgedeck. All sail controls are led aft. Lazzara was an early proponent of this feature, and the boat is user-friendly overall.

The interior sells the boat. It’s nicely finished in teak, and the layout is made for living aboard. The aft cabin includes an enormous double berth with an en suite head and stall shower. The main saloon is spacious and well ventilated, although beware of the plastic opening portlights. If you are looking for a comfortable, well-built center-cockpit cruiser but can’t find one that you can afford, track down a Gulfstar 44; you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Nordic 40

Any list of bluewater cruising sailboats must include a Robert Perry design. I could have easily put together nine Perry boats for this list. The Nordic 40 may surprise some, especially because 40 feet is an iconic length, bringing to mind such boats as the Valiant 40, Hinckley Bermuda 40, Bristol 40, Pacific Seacraft 40, Passport 40 and others. The trick is finding a 40-footer for less than $100,000. Nonetheless, the Nordic 40 and its larger sister ship, the 44, are among my favorite boats.

Based in Bellingham, Washington, Nordic produced world-class yachts during its brief production run in the 1980s. Only 40 Nordic 40s were launched between 1982 and 1987, but they’re worth seeking out on the used-boat market. The 40 features the classic double-ended Perry hull shape, with a fine entry, a deep and powerful fin keel, a skeg-mounted rudder positioned well aft, and a reverse transom. Freeboard is moderate and the sheer line is subtle, but to my eye, with its double-spreader rig and gently sloping deck line, the boat is poetry in the water.

The hull is solid fiberglass and the deck is balsa-cored, with solid laminates below loaded-up deck fittings. Original boats came with Navtec rod rigging and a hydraulic backstay, but many have been upgraded by now. Sail-control lines are led aft to the compact but functional T-shaped cockpit. The traveler is forward of the companionway, allowing for a cockpit dodger. The Nordic 40 is nimble in light to moderate breeze but can also stand up in a blow and heave to decently.

The interior is well suited to a cruising couple. It’s really a two-person boat, with a V-berth forward and large C-shaped galley aft, with plenty of counter space and a huge fridge. It includes the normal deft Perry touches — excellent sea berths, a separate stall shower and generous tankage. If you do find a Nordic 40 on the used market, be sure to take a hard look at the Westerbeke diesel and the V-drive transmission.

Pacific Seacraft 34

Pacific Seacraft 34

A handsome, nimble and capable double-ender by legendary designer Bill Crealock, the Pacific Seacraft 34 is well proven, with scores of ocean crossings in its wake.

After the boat was first launched as the Crealock 34 in 1979, Pacific Seacraft introduced a fifth model years later, a scaled-down version of the popular PS 37. Though expensive at the time, the 34 was another success story for one of America’s premier builders, and hundreds of boats were built in the company’s yard in Santa Ana, California. There is always a good selection of used boats available for less than $100,000. Another nice perk for used-boat buyers is that the 34 is back in production at the reincarnated Pacific Seacraft yard in Washington, North Carolina, providing an outlet for parts and advice. The company is now owned and operated by marine archaeologist Stephen Brodie and his father, Reid.

The 34 blends traditional values above the waterline with what was then a more modern underbody, with a long fin keel and skeg-hung rudder. A bit hefty at 13,500 pounds of displacement, the design otherwise is a study in moderation, and drawn with a keen eye toward providing a soft ride in a seaway and staying on good terms with Neptune in a blow.

The hull is solid fiberglass, and early decks were plywood-­cored before Pacific switched to end-grain balsa. The hull-to-deck joint incorporates a molded bulwark that offers added security when you’re moving about on deck, and a vertical surface for mounting stanchions.

Most 34s are cutter-rigged for versatility but carry moderate-­size genoas instead of high-cut yankees for more horsepower off the wind. Down below, the layout is traditional, but the 6-foot-4-inch headroom is a pleasant surprise. The Pacific Seacraft 34 is perfect for a cruising couple.
