BVI Yacht Sales Overview

55′ Custom Built Danish Gaff Ketch Hajkutter

This 55′ Custom Built Sailboat is a serious ship, not just another sail boat! She was first built in 1924 to work as a flatfish trawling boat under the name ‘Argus’, which she did successfully through at least 1963, eventually sinking in 1979. Sometime shortly after she was bought and fully restored by a Dutch enthusiast, and sold to another who brought her across the Atlantic to the Caribbean in 2014.   She is a stout, well maintained all ocean family voyaging boat with the charm and style that would turn even Sterling Hayden’s eye, and earn you new friends in every port you go.  When you sail a boat like Samsara, you get offered free dockage, invited to special events, and welcomed just on the pure class you show arriving in little ship like this!  

After all, life is too short to sail ugly boats!


She is fully VAT paid, and available with active daycharter business at additional negotiated pricing.
