1986 KETCH 18m (60 ft), Ferro-Cement, SY CAROLINA
A rare opportunity to own a blue-water cruiser in such beautiful condition.
***REDUCTION to 95,000 euros***
SY Carolina has been constantly maintained and improved over the last 30 years, including new teak decks (approx 15 years ago, with new caulking 4 years ago), painted hull, and coppercoat 2020. The vessel was originally built for the shipyard owner of IDSEA in Italy, then sold to her current owner who changed the layout from a charter cabin layout to a welcoming owner's layout with a large main salon.
The owner, passionate about his beloved SY Carolina, has prepared her for her next adventure, including a two-week yard period in 2020 with new Coppercoat on the hull (to last 10 years), painted hull, and new seacocks and re-bedding some stanchions. Everything stays on board, the new owners only need to throw off the lines and go cruising!
Ferro-cement? A quality Italian custom-built yacht with sleek lines, offering safe navigation with cruising speeds of 6-8 knots and peace at anchor. SY Carolina is set up short-handed sailing with a sea kindly Ketch Rig.
The interior is warm African hardwood and mahogany, with a well-equipped galley including a fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Carolina sleeps 9 with a master cabin aft, a double forward, and 2 bunks in a separate cabin, with a convertible salon for up to three guests. The forward and aft cabins have separate electric toilet/shower rooms.
Her upkeep has spared no expense; the engine and generator show careful care and maintenance as bright and clean with full servicing history.
Serious sailors only need to see her once to fall in love and imagine blue-water cruising and worldwide adventures.
