About the Boat

The Yacht is very solid, and it was overspecified from the standard outfitting list. It fits our purpose to the full as a cruising yacht with large cockpit space, large cabins (all double) and salon/galley with a lot of natural light due to the many hatches and windows. The engine is a VP D2-75 with sail drive and a Gore foldable propeller. Each cabin have separate toilet/sink/shower capabilities. I have fitted a windgenerator and a watermaker as well, so that we can stay away from marinas for a long period of time. There is a large electrical operated swimming platform at the rear, making the cockpit area really huge when laying on anchor. The rib w/15 hp outboard (both man./electr. start) is normally suspended in davits at the rear. The yacht can easily be operated by one person as all lines come back to the cockpit. Oversized winches are installed (total 6 in cockpit). Furling Mainsail and Genoa is of offshore quality. A Gennaker on furler is also available. The cockpit can be totally closed by means of hood with removable sides. The yacht is also equipped with a bow thruster for easy manoeuvring. A chart plotter is installed in the middle of the two helm stations, and there is a chart plotter at the chart table in the salon, both with AIS. VHF station located at chart table and a wireless VHF to be used at the helm. All electronical navigational equipment of GARMIN brand. Remote controller for chart plotter, swim platform, autopilot and anchor at the bow. Plenty of ropes and fenders. A petrol operated generator is kept stored for emergency. Underwater camera to inspect underside of hull if needed. Bosun chair and self hoisting winch and 12V Winchrite also.

Fishing gear, a SUP (stand up paddle board), snorkle gear and wet suits onboard.

If we would consider a yacht swap, my requirements would be to a similar yacht in the 40-45 ft. range, well equipped, maintained and preferably not older than 10-15 years.

About the location

The yacht is berthed at the Marina at Åmøy. This is approx. 1 hr. from Stavanger by car. Pristine sailing is found just outside the marina and the Ryfylke is regarded as one of the most beautiful areas of Western Norway (if not the prettiest in all of Norway). There are plenty of places to visit and anchor the yacht (both in marinas and in coves/islands). Check this link to find out what is said about Ryfylke;
