We bought the yacht as the first owner in September 2010. In the purchase decision was important for us that the yacht has an excellent tack performance and is on all courses generally not slow, is also suitable to attend regattas, is safe in rough seas, has a good (Scandinavian) boatbuilding quality and is not a mass product and has a certain exclusivity.

The yacht was originally exhibited at the 2008 La Rochelle Boat Show. She was then placed ashore with the French Maxi Yachts dealer as a display yacht and was not launched or fully commissioned until we bought her in 2010. We then further equipped the yacht according to our specifications for worldwide sailing and to take part in trans-ocean regattas.

After taking ownership of the yacht in September 2010, we have sailed the yacht mainly either as a couple or singlehanded. Her maiden voyage was a non-stop passage from Brittany to Gran Canaria. In 2011, we sailed from the Canary Islands to Madeira, Portugal, Spain and Italy. In the following season we were in Greece, in the Adriatic and in the Mediterranean. In 2016 we participated in the ARC and sailed to the Caribbean. The following year, I sailed singlehanded back to Europe.

Each sailed day is entered in the logbook and most routes are also electronically logged with all values such as position, speed, wind direction, wind force, depth, etc.

All equipment which had to be serviced according to the manufacturer has always regularly been maintained. So the engine and the generator have been serviced every year the deck and the hull polished and waxed every second year, the watermaker always conserved after use, the electronics with batteries always renewed and so on.


• The yacht is suitable for short or long-range races or for a round-the-world sailing and can operate self-sufficient several months long.

• The electrical power supply is carried out in addition to the alternator with solar cells and a diesel generator. An adjustable shore connection for 230 or 110 V AC with isolating transformer is installed.

The energy consumption of the yacht is minimized, the instruments and as well also the radar has minimal consumption (1,38A !), all lamps are LEDs and the refrigerator is seawater-cooled.

The fresh water supply is made from two tanks and by means of a watermaker.

• The sailed routes are logged and thus the performance data of the yacht (polar charts) can always be optimized.

• The detachable second forestay and a second rail on the mast allow the setting of storm jibs or working jibs and trysail.

• An also removable Facnor furling system allows the setting of gennaker or code 0 on the bowsprit or the setting of a stagnant heavy weather jib instead of the second forestay, tensioned with the 2: 1 reduced halyard.

• The mainsail has three single reefs and controlled with the mainsheet, German Sheeting System + traveller and with the preventer.

• The yacht is basically designed for singlehanded sailing on longer routes and has also been practiced several times by the owner. The winch on starboard has an electric drive to which all halyards and sheets can be diverted, also the reefing line of the foresail furler.

• During night sailing the entire lighting in the salon and navigation area can be switched to red.

• An active radar reflector and an AIS transmitter provide additional security.

• A fixed built-in VHF and an SSB marine radio with a Pactor modem, coupled with e-mail traffic and weather forecasts is available for communication. The VHF radio has a manual remote control in the cockpit and a horn loudspeaker on the mast.

• All flammable gases or gasoline have been removed. Cooking is via an electric cooker and microwave.

• Detachable or retractable covers are available for the Mainsail and Genoa. For the protection of the sun during the journey a bimini is used, which can also be provided with covers on all sides.

• Additional four covers are available for anchorages or for the stay in a marina, so that all hatches and windows and the deck are protected by the direct sunshine.

• The anchor / harness consists of a stainless steel anchor and a steel chain, as well as an anchor line.

• A heating system with diesel fuel and air conditioning are provided for air conditioning.

• The complete documentation of the yacht, the routes recorded in log files, including a scanned logbook, as well as the port descriptions and the interesting facts from the magazines YACHT, PALSTEK, SAILING and YACHTREVUE are included on board in electronic form in PDF files.

• The yacht hull is accident-free and has been maintained according to the regulations and recommendations of the manufacturers
