Circe is a 65’ center cockpit ketch custom designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built by Robert E. Derecktor in Mamaroneck NY. She is a near sistership to Cruzan, Rewa, Beyonden, and Djinn. These are very capable offshore sailing and cruising yachts. Circe sailed in the Bermuda Race and the race to Norway. She has cruised in the Baltic, Mediterranean, Caribbean, New England, Pacific, and Pacific Northwest.
The boat has been stored indoors between cruising seasons and continually maintained by her owner. The alloy deck and teak were replaced (2007) along with a new bow thruster (2014), new Schaefer jib furler and new batteries (2010).
CIRCE's hull was surveyed by ultrasound in 2015 and the aluminum plating was found to be seaworthy and within prescribed tolerances.

The AC system is 125V with dockside and generator connections for 30A. Providing oversight for the system is an Electroguard corrosion monitor gauge.
Plumbing & Ventilation
Hot water onboard is generated in a 10 gallon heat exchanger as well as an Everhot system run off the Webasto furnace. Hot water is plumbed to outlets in the heads, showers, and galley. Offshore, fresh water can be generated by the integrated watermaking system.
