Broker’s Comments

To many sailors, this Van de Stadt design is still one of the most attractive yachts around – with its beautiful lines and superb proportions. A Gallant 53 will be noticed and talked about when she sails along the coast or enters any marina.

Gallant 53 AGLAIA was launched in 1968. Her first owner sailed AGLAIA from her UK based boat yard to the US. Thereafter she has mainly been sailing in US and Canadian waters. In 2013, AGLAIA was bought by her current owner. She is a US registered yacht, but was sailed to Sweden in 2018 where she has since been used for family sailing, a few weeks every summer, in the beautiful Scandinavian waters. During wintertime AGLAIA has been stored inside a heated shed and has been serviced and upgraded by Vindö Marin.

Gallant 53 AGLAIA is a ketch, allowing a variety of sails to be employed according to various weather and sea conditions. The furling systems are hydraulic and there are two primary electric Andersen 58 winches. The main, mizzen and genoa are North 3di from 2021.

The 158 hp Yanmar engine was replaced around the year 2000. A bow thruster was installed in 2019 to make manoeuvring easy. Most electric equipment and navigation instruments have all recently been upgraded.

All outside woodwork was varnished in 2020.

The interior is in good condition. The area in front of the saloon was rebuilt by Vindö Marin in 2019 to include a large heads / shower cabin a large forward owners cabin, with plenty of storage space.

For anyone looking for a lovely, beautiful, classic ocean going yacht with a great reputation, do not miss out on Gallant 53, AGLAIA!
