About this Solaris 42 Ketch


A rarely available example of this Lloyds 100A1 luxury sailing home she is now presented in good condition for her age, offering superb comfort for extended cruising. Her robust construction and easily handled sail plan make her the ideal choice for a circumnavigation or live-aboard sailing agenda.


Built in Southampton for the Kuwaiti Foreign Minister to his own specifications this boat was launched in 1980 and sailed through the Red Sea to the Seychelles, India, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines and then cruised extensively in the Med. She offers excellent accommodation for the long term liveaboard.

The previous owner carried out an extensive refurbishment programme including a full anti osmosis treatment. The current owner replaced the engines with two Beta Marine marinised Japanese Kubota four cylinder diesels. New props were installed at the same time.

This year, the electrical systems were updated with six new batteries, intelligent battery charger, new LED lighting, two new solar panels and controller. In addition the plumbing system has had all pumps replaced.

Most recently the saloon furnishings have been replaced with attractive, high quality seat covers. The owner's plans had changed before he updated the instruments, so there will be tinkering room for a new owner.

The interior is beautifully built using the best materials and exudes traditional comfort and luxury.
