KESTREL is an astonishingly voluminous yacht, offering 4 double cabins for guests with separate crew accommodation together with a small crew mess forward, and a large deck saloon. Her aft deck has a vast area for alfresco eating as well as ample room to sunbath and great access to the sea for swimming or using the onboard toys.
She has a handsome hull shape and a powerful rig plan making her easy to sail and offering a surprising turn of speed.
Down below a large engine room houses all the ship’s systems and there is super access for maintenance as needed.
She also has a galley that is set up for entertaining and she is a very usable yacht for both private and charter use.
KESTREL is now surplus to requirements and her asking price reflects this fact. Her current owners have enjoyed her enormously but their plans have changed. The photographs within this specification were taken of the yacht in full cruising trim when she was in full commission.
She was built to MCA LY2 standards and would make a superb charter yacht or a great family yacht for Mediterranean and Caribbean adventures. Her recent build means that her equipment and systems are modern and well-conceived.
