Description

'Mintaka' is a classic long keeled double ended cruising yacht of the most traditional lines. She is a very comfortable and surprisingly fast yacht with such appealing lines. Wide side decks, bordered by 7'' high bulwarks afford safe and easy movement and deck work forward. Built safely and simply, items such as the bronze worm drive steering highlight this yacht's strength and integrity.

She had a complete refurb in 2013, inside and out. Topsides, decks and coachroof repainted. The interior was re worked, the forepeak converted from a workshop to a new double cabin and all interior paint and varnish renewed.

Then in 2014 she had a complete bottom job, the hull taken right back to bare steel and it is still in prime condition.

Now in 2017 she has recently received another good refit and stands in excellent condition.

The yacht has sailed Cape Horn two times and is ready for new adventures.
