PS Designs are offering a brand new 60ft Schooner which is currently being built and is offering an amazing deal, compared to other brand new 60ft Schooner yachts on the manufacturing market today! She offers very spacious accommodation and is still in build (as you can see from the photos) which means you can shape her to your exact specification when working directly with the builders when finishing her off, which we feel offers a fantastic and open opportunity!
We understand PS Designs are a small manufacturer and does not provide years of experience and many trusted builds behind them but they are offering a CE certified class A yacht, with an extensive build programme and inventory which is all off course all open to comprehensive viewings, inspections, and surveys from any maritime professionals you feel necessary.
Given we (as a brokerage office) have extensive experience working with designed project yachts and more recently, Zenon Yachts Ltd who supply the Sunquest range as hulls that need finishing by the purchasers, we understand what is involved with a project and already know this is a proven a very popular concept across the world given we have 1 unfinished Sunquest hull to Europe and another the Sri Lanka in a short space of time.
As a result we urge you to explore the concept of getting a great discount on a 2016 - 60ft Schooner, while at the same time dictating the final finish be it the wood work, electronics, furnishings, rigging, sails, helming gear, galley, heads etc...
As a result we now welcome all serious inquiries and viewing requests for this great opportunity looking forwards.
