Broker's Comments

This beautiful sailing Yacht, built for her present owner, is a stretched version of the Kanter 51 Pilot House. Designed by Dieter Empacher she has a near 50% ballast ratio and her owner reports she will happily carry full sail to windward in 20kts +. In excellent condition and fully equipped with everything to make life afloat a pleasure, she even has a dive compressor and two dive tanks. Hydraulic primary and halyard winches take the effort out of sail handling, whilst an electro/hydraulic bow thruster takes the stress out of berthing, with the ice maker and whatever you pour over it taking the stress out of everything else. The tropical sun has started to take its toll on the Lacquer applied to the hull paintwork but the underlying paint is still generally in good condition and and the teak decks need sanding & caulking / replacing, but other than that maintenance is pretty much up to date.

Standing rigging and most sails are 1993?

"emergency steering" is this a manual tiller in case of rudder failure?
