Buchanan custom - USD 30,000

This yacht has been a labour of love for her owner and she is only regretfully for sale and at a very reasonable price.  'Manaia' is a 37.5' round bilge steel yacht built in Holland by FA. Dekker & Son and an Alan Buchanan design.

The yacht was originally a ketch and now has a new mainmast only.  A beautiful steel hull form, stainless steel chequer plate decks and a Mahogany cabin top.    She has been through a huge refit costing more than the asking price today.

The interior has been re worked, all newly varnished, all new upholstery, new stainless steel water tanks, new fridge and more.. Up top, a new mast, new boom, a new duck board, new davits, new sprayhood etc..

Inspection by appointment with YBC.
