Broker's Comments

Built for C Thomas Clagett Jr, an American businessman in 1976, this 72' ketch has had a fascinating history! Built at Derecktor Shipyard (known as America's most accomplished boatbuilder), her early life was spent around Florida and the Bahamas where having a centreboard made cruising that area accessible for a large yacht.

She came across the Atlantic and made her way to the Isle of Wight. Her last outing was in 2020 when she sailed across the channel. She is now afloat and does need to be moved from the marina on sale completion.

There is a lot of boat here, she has huge liveaboard potential, albeit there is plenty of work to be done but she appears solid and certainly sits afloat happily. The yard have had the engine running and the majority of her equipment tested over the last few months and gradually we are finding out more information which will be added to the listing. Historic paperwork is limited but what we have can be sent on request.

Viewings are welcomed but the boat MUST be moved from the marina on completion and she CANNOT be lifted or slipped locally

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
