GALADRIEL is hull number 33 of 33 so is the last Malo 42 to be built on the magical Isle of Orust in Sweden. As only Swedish boat builders can, she has been designed and crafted to be sea kindly and beautifully robust.
She is still in her original ownership and specifically designed and set up for long distance live aboard cruising in the Caribbean. From prior yacht ownership the owners knew what they wanted and so began the search for the right yacht for them. GALADRIEL was built with a few tweaks to her layout including a slightly larger day head and galley from standard. Boasting a myriad of useful owner tweaks which have been born out of their cruising experience, she has been continually upgraded for each new season cruising throughout the Caribbean and the East Coast of the US.
The Malo Yachts’ trademark deep and secure aft cockpit is spacious yet still offers unrivalled security at sea. The mainsheet is mounted on the targa arch so you have added safety of no mainsheet in the cockpit which helps keep it spaghetti free. The internal cabinetry is of particular note, solid fiddles and crafted of stunning mahogany. These owners also had extra storage added to both cabins from new.
At the start of 2020 GALADRIEL was in Florida and when COVID-19 hit the owners decided to fly home and package her up safely onto a ship and bring her home. She is now back in her home Solent port and truly ready for a new owner to start a new adventure.
GALADRIEL is a safe and comfortable long distance cruising yacht. We designed her layout to be suitable for two handed Bluewater cruising based on our previous long distance sailing experiences.
NOTE: Full and detailed maintenance and service logs available from new along with an extensive selection of spares are included in the sale.
