Grace is for Sale

Great Barrier Island, New Zealand

Grace was purchased to fulfill a family dream. To safely, and comfortably introduce young children to ocean cruising in the South Pacific.

We chose a super strong, seaworthy yacht, that can cross any ocean in comfort. She has the sailing range, and motoring range to cross the Tasman- and to keep away from looming bad weather.

Grace is 48 foot 6 inches long, she draws just under 2 metres. She was built in Sweden in 2002.
