Broker Comments

The story of this vintage yacht begins 1974 in the American Marine Ltd shipyards of Kowloon. The hull is composed by 4cm thick mahogany beams and local wood frame, secured with bronze screws and bolts. The decks and railings are teak and solid mahogany is used for the keel and the stern post in 20cm sections. The two engines have been installed by the Burger Boat Company of Manitowoc, Wisconsin, USA.

This boat cruised the first twenty years along the US east coast from New England to the Florida Keys and the Bahamas. Subsequently, it has been transferred to Spain and cruised as M.Y. Teba essentially in the Balearic Islands.

Since this year, the boat has been renamed SAI KUNG - a fishing village near Kowloon – and is offered for sale or charter in the Eastern Mediterranean.
