The Guppy is for sale! This historic yacht that Laura Dekker circumnavigated the world with as the youngest sailor on record, is now for sale, it is very well equipped and suitable for sailing long distances. The boat has undergone many adaptations for its trip around the world, Including two propulsion engines, a strengthened and enlarged rudder and larger tanks. The navigation equipment is comprehensive. Yachts of this type have already done long sailing journeys and as such have proved their seaworthiness more than once. By current standards it’s a heavily built craft, with a nice low deck. The centre cockpit creates space aft for a separate cabin which makes it ideal for trips with the family. Although the cockpit is deep and large any water is discharged easily and quickly which lends good protection . Not only this but the location of the cockpit to the centre of the boat makes for pleasant, stable sea behaviour .
For the time of its construction the boat had a rather large width which makes for not just a spacious cockpit, but also the interior. The main cabin leads to a roomy cabin fore as well as the cabin aft make it a boat that enables a comfortable stay in the harbour. There are extra berths in the cabin, which make a total of 8 berths. The galley and large navigation table are all well equipped and have newly fitted appliances.
