1997 Fairwind 46' - USD 73,000

This is an extremely rugged globe trotter. Recently returned from Japan, the yacht is a proven long range yacht. Self built to stock plans, with some sensible changes, she comes with a vast inventory of spares and equipment, compressor and air tools, a dozen or so electric hand tools, engine spares and much more..

Significant upgrades have been four new aluminium fuel tanks and fuel delivery, all new ARCUS standing rigging in 2017 and more...

Crewed by husband and wife, she is absolutely stacked with kit...this is the type of boat that with little preparation is ready to go, bring along your personal bits and pieces and GO.

A huge inventory has already been compiled for review upon request.

Last haulout and survey July 2017. (anti foul and anodes)
