A truly exceptional De Vries motorsailer, since originally built, with the original owner!

Grotemeid  is a De Vries 50  custom  made  to the owner requests by the reputable De Vries yard

in 1985 in Drimlin, outside  Amsterdam,  Holland.  The owner personally  follows the construction and once the yacht was delivered,  he crossed  the Atlantic back to Florida. He wanted  a safe & strong easy to handle  ketch  with two cabins, large deck salon,  large kitchen  and dining area. 

She is a pilot house  yacht,  so she can also be comfortably operated from the interior,  with great visibility and in the comfort of the large deck salon.  The aft cockpit  is well protected by a large bimini which allows the vessel operation  with great visibility and in an extremely safe environment if weather  gets rough. The hull construction is with 8mm  steel.  The deck is

painted with antiskid  (never had teak deck).

She offers a well equipped L shaped galley to starboard, accessible descending 3 steps, which also provide access to a very comfortable semi-circular dining table,  sitting  6-8  persons.

The aft master  cabin  is one of the highlights  of the boat with full standing headroom  and a full queen  size berth  with ensuite, with large vanity, shower and an electric  head.

The forward V-berth is spacious with plenty of storage and ensuite head  with vanity and electric  head.

There are two large storage  spaces, a pantry closet  close to the forward cabin  and a tool room close to the aft cabin.  Both provide an amazing  storage  capacity. The yacht is designed for long range voyages in total autonomy.

Available for immediate sale and come highly recommended for as a blue water family cruiser or living aboard.
