Broker’s Comments

Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a turnkey round the world luxury sailboat – fully upgraded and optioned in immaculate condition and ready to go anywhere. SERENDIPITY was ordered new by a wealthy and very particular Norwegian owner to take his family globally in comfort, safety and luxury. She has completed an Atlantic crossing and a season in the Caribbean. She has been based in Portsmouth VA. Tax has been paid and SERENDIPITY is now a US citizen. The owner has invested over a million dollars to get her to this stage and she could literally be sailed anywhere in the world with short notice. This is the deep fin/bulb keel 9.5ft ocean version, very stable and comfortable at sea with minimal heeling, a real pleasure when passage making, there are 4 cabins, sleeping 7 (or 8 if the lower bunk is converted back from storage) . The decks are solid glued down and in excellent condition.

The boat is wired for 220v 50hz power and has a separate 110v 30 amp shore power inverter/charging/outlets system.

The power and charging system on-board is designed for self-sufficiency. The AC is designed to run from the lithium batteries, a 10,000 watt Fischer Panda Inverter generator (Kubota Diesel 1900 hrs) automatically starts when the batteries reach 40% charge, it takes about 3 hours to recharge to 100%. The owner usually does the laundry, makes water or runs the dishwasher when the generator comes on. There is also a hydro generator that charges when sailing, in total there are 5 ways to charge the lithium batteries – solar panels, hydro generator, diesel generator, twin alternators on the main engine and shore power. There are two shore power inlets, one exclusively for the AC units.

The house battery bank has 4 Mastervolt MLK Ultra 12/5000 lithium batteries giving 1440 ah, each battery is paired with a Mastervolt Mass Combi Ultra charger/inverter.

Eberspacher Hydronic diesel heater, Hella 12v fans are mounted throughout.

An Eco Sistems watermaker is on-board making around 50 gallons per hour.

The stern garage can hold a smaller tender, Jet Ski or as storage. Fen Classic carbon davits are mounted on the stern and can easily lift a 40hp, 16ft inflatable via remote control. No tender is included. Satellite communication is provided by the Sailor Cobham system allowing for worldwide voice calling and data services for constant weather and email updates.

A Viking 8 person liferaft certified until 11/22 is mounted aft. There are two B&G autopilots one electric and one hydraulic. 3 x Zeus 3 multifunction displays are fitted displaying all the navigation and radar information. B&G instrumentation is throughout.

A Czone Touch 5 display controls all electrical and electronic items on-board.

There is a good selection of spare parts including pumps and service items for the main engine and generator.

The main engine is an upgraded Volvo D3 150hp with low hours and recently serviced and updated by Volvo, turning a 4 blade folding propeller with a top speed of close to 10 knots. With lower rpm cruising at 6 knots, the consumption was 1 liter per nautical mile giving a range of apx 700 NM. There are 9 jerry jugs on-board extending the range to 900 NM.

The mast, inmast furling and rigging are all Selden and Furlex. The 3 headsails are all on electric Furlex furlers. The boom has a powered hydraulic outhaul.

All sails and the 4 upgraded Harken winches are controlled by push buttons at the helm.
There is a Miele washer/dryer, dishwasher and high-end coffee maker to keep the crew happy. 2 refrigerators and a freezer inside and a very handy drinks refrigerator in the cockpit. Custom leather interior, with custom saloon table.
There is no propane on-board; water heater, cooker and BBQ are all electric.

All bunks have lee cloths fitted for when sailing.

There are 3 double cabin’s and two singles in the 4th cabin, currently one berth has been converted to storage but could be easily changed back.

Blinds and shade on all windows and hatches for privacy and sun protection. Overhead hatches have screens and blinds

10 large inflatable fenders and ample mooring lines.

Spare anchor and a parachute sea anchor.

Retractable bow and stern thrusters make manoeuvring in tight spots easy.

Overall SERENDIPITY presents in excellent condition throughout and would suit a buyer wanting to sail away on the highest spec Hanse 588 in existence!
