Ocean Cruising Sea Trader 41 ft Yacht - £49,500

For those seeking a yacht that can undertake long voyages safely and offer good accommodation, this South African build yacht is ideal. With ample headroom of 2m, she has a spacious feel.

Her present owners have cruised her widely, and spent five years on a North Atlantic circuit including stops at Madeira, the Windward Islands, and the Azores. They found she coped well with even the most intense of weather fronts.

She was designed by E S Barens and built in Durban by Desmo Engineering, completed in 1988. Originally junk rig, she was then sailed to the UK. Documentary proof of VAT paid from HM Customs & Excise is available.

A complete refit was carried out and she was re rigged as a Bermudan Cutter. The original engine was replaced with a Volvo MD 2040 diesel.

The saloon and galley are large, there are two heads compartments, and holding tanks for black and for grey water.
