Recognized in many different ports around the world, Mustang has a fame all her own.  She was originally built for an experienced American yachtsman. The hull is the well-known, performance hull of Doug Peterson’s Ocean 80 series built at Southern Ocean Shipyard. To incorporate a large lazarette, the boat was extended three feet, then taken for fitting out to world-class Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard.  A trailblazer in her day, Mustang is one of a handful of boats in this size and price range that has a true pilothouse---completely enclosed, functioning for piloting and lounging --that also is open to a spacious lower salon.  Three staterooms aft for owner and guests, all with ensuite heads plus two cabins and head forward for crew, complete the beautifully finished interior layout.


Though Mustang can accommodate up to four crew, this mini-superyacht can be sailed with two or three sailors.  The in-mast furling rig, plus all other standing and running rigging, were completely replaced in 2007. Sails were also new in 2007.  During Mustang’s 2012 refit the rig was taken out to service and sails refurbished; the hull and superstructure were painted; the engine was rebuilt, down to the crank shaft; and exterior varnish was stripped and built back up. Decks were new in 2000.  A walk-in engine room with two entries and a crane for launching the tender are an added benefit. September 2016 Mustang completed her annual yard period. She was hauled to paint the bottom, replace zincs, and service thru-hulls and underbody gear, including refurbishment of the bowthruster. Varnish and other routine works were carried out.


Mustang offers the enviable richness of a lovely classic interior in a modern, performance, pilothouse, superyacht.


Deck living:

Mustang has an enormous cockpit for outside living with an elevated steering area directly aft. The center cockpit table has leaves that can be folded down or up for full dining.  A refrigerated compartment in the table makes life easy. Fully cushioned settees surround the cockpit. Side doors create a fully enclosed, ultra-safe cockpit. Bimini and side closures protect during inclement weather.


Pilothouse/Deck and Lower Salons:

From the cockpit, a door leads to the raised pilothouse/deck salon. To starboard is the navigation area; instruments can be hidden when the area is being used as a deck salon. To port is a settee and low coffee/cocktail table. The settee provides a second access to the engine room below. The deck salon opens fully to the lower salon, fostering a remarkable sense of space and light. To port is a large dining table surrounded by settee and chairs inboard. To starboard is a cocktail table with curved settee and a lovely bar which can be formally tended if desired. It has built-in “ice bucket,” storage for bottles and glasses.


Galley and Crew Quarters:

Forward of the lower salon, a door leads to the galley. To port are all amenities (See Galley List) including double stainless steel sinks, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, stove top and oven, microwave plus good counter space and storage; to starboard is the crew mess. Extra storage is here, including a freezer under one of the settees.  Forward are two cabins: the port one can be configured to a double bed; the starboard one has over/under bunks; they share a large head forward.


Master and Guest Staterooms:

From the pilothouse stairs lead aft to the master stateroom, two guest staterooms and engine room access.  The master stateroom is luxurious with a centerline queen bed, settees on each side, closets, cabinets and drawers for plenty of storage.  The settee on the port side can convert to a 6 ft. sea berth. Various types of lighting permit reading or create mood. The ensuite bath provides a very large enclosed shower, Vacuflush fresh water toilet, sink, counter space and mirrored cabinets.


Moving forward, the port guest stateroom has a full-sized bed, hanging locker, drawers and cabinets for storage as well as an ensuite head with stall shower, fresh water toilet, sink, counters and mirrored cabinets. A door from the head to the hall gives this head the flexibility to be a day head.  The starboard stateroom has twin beds with a bureau between. Storage is comparable to the port stateroom.  The ensuite head with the usual amenities, also houses the washer/dryer and one of the accesses to the engine room that is beneath the raised pilothouse/upper salon. 


The interior is beautifully detailed in classic teak. Shades and curtains for portholes and portlights, brass lamps, and top-quality execution in all respects offer a timeless, peaceful, environment for luxurious living aboard while cruising.

Mustang provides the best of both worlds: performance and modern systems with luxurious living in classic style. Designed for ocean racing performance, the hull became the foundation for a boat exquisitely detailed and finished in classic teak throughout the interior. This combination and the “big boat” superyacht features of Mustang attracted the current owner, who circumnavigated the globe with his wife and three children, ages 6-14. The owner raves about how fast, safe, and comfortable Mustang is. One day they did a 285 NM run.  She was easily sailed with three sailors and her trip from Auckland to Vancouver was two-handed. Mustang is unsurpassed in her flexible cruising ability thanks to her layout and features.


Having completed the circumnavigation, the owner is keen to sell.  Never before has Mustang been offered at this price. Don’t miss this opportunity; buy now and cruise the Caribbean or begin this proven passagemaker’s 5th trip around the world!
