DESCRIPTION

Oh my golly gosh what a wonderful MFV trawler yacht!! She was built in 1957 at the yard of Edward Van de Voorde, on the River Scheldt at Antwerp, Belgium, for Belgian nobleman Vicomte Max Vilain XIIII. The designer, Alex Selleslagh, had a reputation for drawing stout steel yachts. She feels perfectly proportioned in every way and really feels like a little big ship and she looks the part. With her initial cruising grounds being Iceland now after the last decade cruising Atlantic Spain and Portugal, and the Mediterranean, she is now south coast UK and ready for more adventures.
She had a major refit infrom her previous owner which is extremely well documented in a full refit log with numerous photographs of all parts and stages. Once this refit was complete the previous owner lived on board for five months of each year, transiting each year through the Caledonian Canal and cruising the west coast of Scotland.
1994, and she was brought south to Gosport. For the next 13 years she cruised the south coast of England and north and west coasts of France and the Channel Islands. During this period she was from time to time used as a guardship/mothership, including assisting a club rowing around the Isle of Wight and as a steward at the International Fleet Review in 2005.
In 2007 she was taken down the Atlantic coasts of Spain and Portugal to the Mediterranean where she remained until 2018. She returned to British waters in November 2018 onboard a specialist yacht transfer merchant vessel.
Onboard I loved everything from her lemon squeezer type deck prism lights to the vast open flat deck, the lovely solid wood interior and the huge super clean engine room. She comprises of an aft owners cabin, spacious saloon (which can convert to a double berth), 2 bunk forward cabin with two electric heads with shower, large galley and as mentioned a huge engine room. Outside a commanding wheelhouse, easy walk around deck forward, side and aft. I also like her side stairs passerelle which allows you to swim and then directly step out of the water - you can see this on a photo in the gallery.
Current owner comments:
"We have used her extensively over a 27 year period cruising in northern European waters followed by 12 seasons in the Mediterranean. During this period she has proved to be a safe, reliable and comfortable vessel which is capable of long distance passages combined with safe anchoring. These passages were made possible by a good endurance in terms of range and fresh water capacity. Her sea keeping qualities were necessarily tested on many occasions and she never let us down! She is strong, sound and fully ready for further extensive cruising."
