ISABEL is an exceptional blue water cruising yacht that has been maintained to the highest standards. She is spacious and comes with masses of beautiful joinery, well-conceived seating and relaxing spaces. She is also long legged, with a powerful sail plan. The refit and renewal throughout her life means that she wears her years with dignity and is fully equipped for serious cruising.
ISABEL is a member of the family and we have continued with the heritage from her previous owners that never put her under charter. She is not a motor sailor. She has a slender hull and performs very well under canvas. Due to her weight (close to 100mT when fully laden) she offers great comfort even under the most demanding conditions. Personally, I have been sailing since 1968 and also participated in the Whitbread Round the World Race (now Volvo Ocean Race) and in Trans Atlantic speed record attempts with multihulls.
ISABEL is the yacht that provides state-of-the-art safety for family and guests. She is most satisfied in the wind range from 11 knots and more. With all sails set, we fly close to 1000sqm and she is a joy to sail on a close reach. Upwind, she performs well around 35-40 dgr apparent. Our sailing speed is usually around 8-9 knots. On a reach we commonly achieve about 11 knots. Our maximum sailing speed n the Baltic was 13-14 knots on an open reach in short swell.
The reason why we have put her on the market is due to the fact that the kids getting older and we need a slightly smaller sailing yacht that can be handled by only one person. However, we have sailed ISABEL with only a crew of two. During our ownership we have carried out all the annual services according to manufacturer’s recommendations and common sense.
The ship is now 30 years old and she carries her age with grace.
She is ready to go and all major service and overhaul is done, enabling the new owner to set sails. In the early spring 2014, she will be dry-docked for new antifouling and anodes (this work is included in the asking price).
In the near future we recommend some attention is paid to the corner windscreens on the deck-house (they need new sealing). The lower wood panel (veneer) on the same corners needs to be renewed as well.
The topsides are painted in Awlgrip Stark White with Awlgrip Flag Blue for the blue ribbon. The paint is about 10 years old and we recommend a new touch-up within a couple of years to bring the hull back from shining to sparkling condition. Isabel does not come with hidden agendas.
The last plate thickness survey of the hull was carried out on August 5, 2007. At this time the thickness of the hull was according to the original plating when she was new.
ISABEL is quite unique in the sense that she has a very short ownership chain. I consider this as one of the arguments that the ship is in such good condition. Jongert’s extraordinary quality in craftsmanship and details are another fact to her excellent condition.
A buyer will benefit from good support and advise from the seller. This will enable the new owner to get acquainted with the yacht’s systems as swiftly as possible.
The yacht was originally built to the name SARY. Her 2nd owner’s renamed the yacht CYRANO DE BERGERAC – this name was retained during ownership over the years. During the sale process to the current owner, the yacht was named ARIAN and then received its current name ISABEL ADVENTURE OF SIMRISHAMN, called ISABEL for short.
