 OTHER: The yacht is being sold with its’ full cruising inventory.

 ACCOMMODATION: Aft of the companionway are two double cabins to port and starboard these are presently used for general storage and are not fully fitted out.  There is good engine access from each aft cabin and from behind the removable companionway ladder.

      Forward of the companionway the large chart table and nav area is to starboard and the L-shaped galley to port. The saloon has a spacious dinette to port and a double bed (‘berth’ gives no impression of its size) to starboard.

      Ahead of the saloon the heads and shower compartment stretches across the width of the ship.

The forecabin is taken up by a large double berth.

      The interior of the yacht was grubby when inspected but is largely of good quality woods needing some varnish.    Insulation seems to be good with the boat feeling comparatively cool in Mediterranean August temperatures.   There are opening ports in the coach roof and hatches over the saloon, heads and forecabin.

 DECK LAYOUT: The low, narrow coach roof  gives very spacious and pleasing side and foredecks.

The cockpit layout is standard with powerful winches and a hefty main traveler.   There is a scoop/ bathing platform aft.


     Jean-Marie Finot needs no introduction as one of the premier French yacht designers.   What is remarkable about this design is the sleekness of the double chine hull which belies the enormously spacious interior.   The present owners have lived on board since they bought the yacht in 1985.  We are told that this design is called ‘Kurland’ and is a development of ‘Reve d’Antilles’ with full headroom throughout.

     We have seen no signs of rust externally and the bilges we looked at were clean and well epoxied.

      With her near new working sails and engine added to an impeccable design pedigree we are happy to offer her at the very serious selling price of USD 50,000.
