TUCANA was purchased in late 2013 and has had a large refit at Monaco Marine in the South of France. A huge amount of upgrading was completed, including a brilliantly reworked crew cabin forward, new standing rigging, full electronics package that would embarrass a super yacht and many, many other additions.
Since then she has had ongoing maintenance and upgrades which include new running rigging, set of North 3di sails, hydraulic passarelle and a custom carbon tender – to fit perfectly in the lazarette.
Please do call for her full specifications, and a chat about the highest spec’d Shipman 63 on the water. With VAT already paid, she represents amazing value for money.

Summary of Accommodation:
The accommodation of the Shipman 63 is contemporary, bright and air and with excellent visibility from the saloon, navigation area and the galley. The yacht is unique in that she is fundamentally a deck saloon without looking like one from the exterior. Her sleek lines and clever design gives the best of both worlds.
The forward crew cabin is separated from the owner’s suite by a watertight bulkhead; lots of storage, heads, sink and double bunk, AC and fan for the crew.
Due to the yachts powerful lines, the owner’s suite has a large amount of room, with a large double bed, offset to port and a sofa on the starboard side with plenty of storage forward and on the hull side.
A step up into the saloon are giving excellent exterior views with an open plan feel to the galley, seating area, the navigation area and day heads. The two mirror image aft cabins are both generous in size and comfortable for guests, well separated from the owner’s suite.
