Custom Yacht Sales is proud to offer this exciting listing for those seeking the ideal offshore sailing vessel, easily handled by two.
"A-TRAIN" is Canadian Registered and is on its way to New Zealand for a November 2016 to March 2017 layover. You can sail her away from there, or her experienced and extremely knowledgeable owners are prepared to deliver her to a Port of the buyer's choice. Please Note: Purchasers are advised to determine what duties and taxes are applicable to the importation of a foreign vessel into their respective country.
Here is what the experts say: "The Sundeer 56/60 line by TPI and Dashew Offshore is a strongly built, well thought-out passagemaker for those who dream to sail around the world. Her masculinity, rawness, and narrow beam give her a distinctive style. Great support is available as the Dashews continue to try out innovative ideas and have produced a wide array of books, pamphlets, and videos to explain their philosophy and boats that envelope it."
The owners have provided an extensive write up and after reading it, one will have to agree there is no finer Sundeer 60 available in today's market place. Please call for full details.
The Sundeer 60 designed by Steve Dashew and constructed in 1995 at TPI Composites, with the scrimp method, was conceived to be, and remains today, one of the safest cruising yachts afloat period! It has been described by many sources as the very best yacht on which to undertake a circumnavigation. There is extensive documentation on these Iconic yachts, along with lengthy articles by industry professionals extolling the design, construction, safety and legendary performance of the Sundeer series of yachts. The original construction exceeded all ABYC requirements and recommendations. Most have already circumnavigated, some more than once, crewed only by couples. The design was intended to be the safest and most efficient cruiser afloat capable of being sailed and maintained by a cruising couple, sailing long distances with speed and safety as the principle priorities. With our 45,000 miles at sea so far aboard A-TRAIN we can confidently claim that Steve and Linda Dashew, seriously understated the capability of these yachts! And the Dashew’s made some wild sounding claims back then. There are zero thru hull penetrations in the main living area of the boat. The one standpipe thru hull in the forward locker/garage space is isolated by a genuine full height 100% watertight bulkhead. The two aft sections of the boat (the main living area and the machinery space) are also contained by genuine full height 100% watertight bulkheads, creating three separate and completely watertight compartments. Either, and in effect, both ends of the boat can be flooded and the boat can still be sailed to safety. All machinery, fuel and mechanical systems are contained in the watertight engine room, which is equipped with an automated fire suppression system. The engine room is completely separate from the living spaces. The hull has substantial bow crash zone reinforcements and the entire underbody was reinforced during construction, with the optional reinforcement lay up along the entire underbody and surrounding the keel sump and rudder structure. The design combines integral water tanks along the turn of bilge creating a double hull for a large portion of the underbody and a very strong hull overall, which should resist severe groundings without compromising the hull. The rudder, its stock and surrounding structural support is massively designed and is unlikely to suffer damage under most any grounding situation. The Yacht is fitted with a 12-foot long structural welded aluminum pilot house with ½ inch Lexan exterior and was designed to handle roll over or pitch polling while maintaining its integrity and structural attachment to the yacht. Over 100,000 dollars was applied to the design construction and installation of this substantial enhancement. The pilot house is equipped for full time navigating with Radar, Computer/Plotter, AIS, 4 electric winch controls, Jib furler, anchor windlass and Auto Pilot controls all situated and organized for single handing the vessel from the comfort and protection of the pilot house. The added value in safety afforded the crew via comfort and a lack of fatigue while at sea cannot be understated.
Built in 1995 but launched in 1997 after being highly customized by the original owner, we, as third owners have owned her since 2009 and have constantly upgraded and refit her in preparation for and during our cruising adventures. The state of repair, outfitting and condition is exceptional.

The open concept interior layout is bright and airy giving the impression of being aboard a much larger yacht. Six long hull side port lights and five overhead hatches provide lots of natural light and excellent ventilation which is enhanced by ten large cowl dorade vents. Sole is teak and timber trims are cherry wood. The balance of interior structure is of low maintenance materials with a classy padded overhead treatment. Cushions are Ultra Swede. The main saloon is extremely comfortable, quiet and private.

The large U shaped galley configuration on the Sundeer 56&60’s is a focal point of the spacious open concept interior. It boasts acres of Corian counter top work surface with deep fiddles, an enormous pantry with custom shelving and loads of related storage. No more digging behind settee cushions and lifting floorboards to find the stores! The sink and stove are offset so one does not have to stand in front of the stove when working the galley in a seaway. Meal preparation in port or at sea is equally enjoyable.

Sailing Instruments, GPS, Radar, Auto Pilot, HF and VHF Radios, A/C and D/C distribution, monitoring and control panels are all nicely laid out.
The Aft Cabin on Port, aft of the Galley has a double upper berth and single lower berth. Both berths are equipped with lee cloths as this is the main Sea Cabin when underway. There are lockers, hanging locker and under berth storage along and two opening ports, (one of which allows for communication with on-watch crew in the Pilot house), good lighting, separate zone furnace thermostat and a Hella Turbo fan.
Low and in the Port hip of the boat, this is a superior sea cabin that is equally comfortable for guests at sea or at anchor.
Virtually all watch standing and navigation (and in fact most lounging, meals and entertaining) are done in the luxury of the fully enclosed 12 foot long structural Pilot House. Seated at the dedicated watch position one can operate all 4 power winches, autopilot, nav computer, radar, sailing instruments, AIS and Electric Jib Furler without having to go below or outside. The pilot house has plush upholstery, great visibility, a stereo with remote and is quickly configurable from coastal sailing and anchored or dockside modes to offshore mode. Anchored, dockside and coastal set up is with fore and aft seating at folding teak tables on port and starboard. The entire aft portion can be configured fully or partially open for expansive comfort and space when entertaining or anchored. There are three opening hatches and a turbo fan for ventilation. The port side table/seating converts into an excellent sea berth or relaxing settee. This is a warm, dry, safe and very civilized living area. It is the envy of every yachtie who comes aboard A-TRAIN.
The full width cockpit is nearly all the way aft and surrounded by high, substantial solid stainless lifelines. It is laid out so that one person can handle the yacht in almost any conditions with little effort. Visibility is excellent. There are six winches in the cockpit, four are electric, dual custom steering wheels and all running rigging is led to the cockpit. Well-designed sail handling systems, line storage, and equipment layout confirms this is a serious offshore cruiser.

Engine Room and Additional Mechanical Equipment:
The engine room on A-TRAIN is nothing short of outstanding. The entire space was very well conceived and professionally customized at great expense by the original owner to provide complete access to all corners via three separate access points. This is a huge improvement over the original design and access arrangement. Literally four people can work on different systems at the same time and all have room to spare. Every system exhibits a professional level of installation, access, maintenance and repair. There is an automatic engine room fire suppression system. The engine and mechanical space is separated from the yacht interior by a full height watertight bulkhead and is equipped with florescent lighting.
