Broker's Comments

Boatshed Dartmouth are pleased to offer for sale a spacious 59’ Bermudan Ketch. She was built in South Africa in 1961 from the famous yard in Cape Town of Louw & Halverson from a design submitted by the renowned international yacht designer Kurt A.H.Oehlmann of Lubeck, Germany, whose classic designs of timber framed vessels are much desired. She has only had two owners since new!
Col Stanley Jeffrey the original owner requested of the design that she be able to withstand the rigours of the Cape waters and be capable of 9 knots under sail or power. She has proved to be more than able to do both. Numerous updates, revisions and reconditioning has been carried out her including a complete new rig in 2010 and engine re-build in 1990
