This is a beautiful 60-foot converted Danish fishing ketch that was converted to a sailing yacht by the current owners decades ago. It has sailed the seas in friendly and not so friendly waters and has a variety of security features, including a custom shotgun mount on the salon door. The vessel has unique antique charm throughout; some original and some designed with thoughtful foresight during the conversion. Notice the charming glass between the rafters in the salon area. The vessel's 16 foot beam offers a huge salon and galley area, featuring a very large u-shaped dinette that could accommodate 10 for dinner, and there is a large bench style couch facing the dinette. The galley is equipped with a 4-burner propane stove and oven, a double stainless steel sink, a microwave, an under counter refrigerator/freezer, and plenty of hardwood countertops and cabinets that are beautifully finished. The kitchen storage is well designed with features for the high seas that lock-in glass dry storage containers and more. The sleeping quarters include a queen size bed in the main private stateroom, a double berth folds out from the bench, and two bunks in the companion way for guests. The head has a manual pump toilet, a tile floor, a granite topped vanity with a stainless steel sink, and a large shower with a ceramic tile enclosure. The head is also designed with a very unique and beautiful crystal-like light port that brings in natural light. The vessel is powered with a Grenna 90 Hp semi-diesel engine, which means compression is half of a normal diesel engine. The semi-diesel design requires glow plugs and favors a longer life. It also has two Lister diesel generators. One is in the engine room & the other is on the aft deck behind the wheelhouse. The aft generator is setup to power a high capacity bilge pump in the event the boat is taking on water. If you want a classic sailing vessel capable of cruising the globe, this is a must-see. Reason for selling is time to move on after many wonderful years.
