Yachting Monthly Offshore 38 – Light Blue - For sale!

In 1989, Yachting Monthly, the UK’s most popular sailing magazine published the Offshore Yacht series. A team comprised of experts drawn from the magazine’s editorial line-up and the yachting world pooled their expertise and examined in minute detail every aspect of offshore yachts to discover where improvements could be made. From their recommendations, the imaginary “YM Offshore 35” was designed, but was never built, due probably to the expensive production costs.

In 1990, however, Sirius Yachts, builders of the David Thomas-designed Sirius 42 ocean cruiser, agreed to progress the project, making one conceptual change by lengthening the hull by three feet to 38. The plan to build an ideal live-aboard ocean-going yacht for a couple to sail wherever they wished in safety was born. David Thomas, the top naval architect, who had been one of the original panel of experts designed the state of the art cruiser, embodying practicality with strength and excellent performance potential.

Edd Jones, Director of The Barbican Yacht Agency, comments, “We are delighted to offer ‘Light Blue’ for sale, this is a fantastic opportunity for a couple to realise their sailing dreams with this true one off in terms of design, construction and equipment. “Light Blue” is offered for sale as her owners have fulfilled their ambition of world cruising and now wish to embark on a land based journey. During the last year “Light Blue” has been treated to a new Selden rig, new Hood sails and full Awlgrip respray. Early viewing is highly recommended.”
