Carbineer 46 - USD 125,000


This Carbineer ketch has been sailed in comfort from Australia by a couple and has proven herself time and again in all conditions. The yacht is an excellent listing, has had good investments in refits and presents very well.

Excellent shelter in the doghouse plus the doghouse steering makes for very pleasant cruising. The yacht has had an interior revamp and is very attractive with light coloured bulkhead teak veneers, traditional deckheads and varnished trims.

In 2014 it had a full hull job, including all new ports, topsides faired and repainted with Awlgrip and masts removed and repainted. The standing rigging was replaced in Sydney in 2012.

Inspection by appointment with YBC.
