About this BOWMAN Bowman 57


Holman & Pye's iconic sisterships at 57 feet built by Bowman Yachts in the UK, are instantly recognisable for their classic good looks and power sailing abilities. Built in 1976, this yacht has many nautical miles beneath her keel and is on her fifth name. All her owners have sailed her far. In this ownership, she has cruised extensively and has been well updated and maintained and she is now offered in full bluewater cruising trim including new standing rigging in 2018. Her split rig makes her manageable for shorthanded sailing and very versatile.


RCD Status: Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from the essential safety requirements of the Recreational Craft Directive as she was built and placed into use within the EU prior to 1998.
