Custom design - Ar Seiz Avel (1974) - €69.000,-

Extraordinary classic world sailor, built in wood and polyester. The ship underwent a full refit in 2014-15, with the interior and exterior in particular. This expedition ship has many nautical miles behind it, including a world voyage, and has always brought the crew and prospective sailors safely to their destination. The spacious, open interior breathes conviviality and living pleasure, the barge deck guarantees maximum interior space. A trip around the world requires a lot of storage space and this ship has it. Furthermore, the equipment with a wind vane steering system is suitable for the large crossings that this ship has actually made. An ideal ship to visit all corners of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. 


Could molded wood construction

2 layers of waterproof glued adhesive wooden strips are attached diagonally over the frame of the hull shape, then finished with a layer of polyester. The hull is approximately 2.5 to 3 cm thick including the polyester layer. The inside of the hull is sprayed with foam insulation, which makes it very well insulated and sound-absorbing. The hull is fitted with the West epoxy system.



The ship was built on the Canadian west coast at a top shipyard specializing in wooden ships and is owned by a Canadian Dutchman, who will of course be able to help you on your way. The ship is currently in Willemstad, Curacao and includes a lot of spare parts and is ready for a new world voyage. Just bring your toolbox and sailing gear!
