Now only in her second ownership, this yacht has been cared for very well and has had some sensible refits. . She has circumnavigated and proved herself time and again. These Ted Irwin designed yachts have a good turn of speed and 'Kelebek's' daily runs have often been 150nm. Above deck the cockpit is especially large and comfortable with excellent new shading, the decks are wide and inviting and have excellent anti slip surfacing. Desirable accommodation giving two large double en suite cabins fore and aft and a very comfortable saloon.
Her current owner has had the yacht for just three years and after buying he immediatelty began a comprehensive refit. The hull was taken back and re epoxied, the whole yacht re painted, new canvass, the rig removed and re painted, new internal halyards installed in main mast, all new bronze through hulls in October 2015 and many other improvements.
The engine doesn't miss a beat, has had all new wiring, Racor filter, new raw water strainer recently.
Last haul out December 2015.
Full forward is a double cabin with en suite facilities. The main saloon benefits from the wide beam and is attractively set out. The wrap around galley is a good offshore design with sensible counter height and fiddles and vast storage and countertop space. Moving aft past the nav station, which has a full size chart table, the passageway retains excellent headroom of two metres into the owner's aft cabin. The Queen size double is athwartships. All cabins have LED lighting.
The fit out remains in very good condition and custom cherry wood linings combine with the teak joinery and soles very nicely. Head linings are white vinyl. The yacht has a winning interior and access through the companionway is not an effort with the large and mildly sloping steps.
