The electric propulsion of the sailing yacht is powered by an extensive battery pack. The batteries are charged by an adapted shore power connection and during the trip by 2 generators and solar panels. We will publish a blog with more information about this soon.
At the same time, all exterior paintwork has been removed, damage has been attended to and everything has been repainted. The teak deck on the cabin roof will be renewed.
The entire hull has been sanded and checked for damage. Where necessary, minor repairs will be carried out. The hull will soon be repainted and antifouling will be reapplied to the underwater hull. The mast and boom will also be repainted.
The hybrid sailing yacht will be ready in the spring of 2021 and will be launched into the water looking sleek and ready for the most beautiful sailing trips!
The owners, Harry and Jill, are a Dutch couple who are realizing their sailing dream: living and working full-time on board and sailing around the world. The first step was taken in 2019 when they bought this Truly Classic Corner Design in Lymington, UK. They sailed from Lymington, passed Dover, crossed the North Sea to Den Helder, and then to her new home in Den Oever in the Netherlands.
