Broker’s Comments

We have known JUST JOIA throughout her current ownership – having sold her to her current owner when she was MYSTIQUE. The Mystic 60 is a phenomenal bluewater cruising yacht, and they have won hearts and minds the world over with their long legged bluewater capability, sweet lines by Frers, spacious centre cockpits and intelligent sail plans. The interior is traditional yet well conceived with a large saloon, great galley and good owner’s cabin. There are two good guest cabins and room for crew as well. JUST JOIA has been much updated in this ownership and has enjoyed two major refits. She has also sailed far. Her distinctive hard dodger is both practical and well engineered and gives additional protection to her sailors in either warm or cold water. She is a very special yacht.

JUST JOIA was in the Caribbean when COVID-19 arrived and spent over a year laid up ashore in Grenada being looked after by the local yard, with her owners unable to visit her. It was decided to bring her back to Northern Europe and so a delivery crew was dispatched to bring her home. Despite all the restrictions in quarantines on the way, she made a good and safe passage, proving once again that she is an outstanding bluewater cruising yacht.

JUST JOIA was delivered back from the Caribbean by PYD. This is what their skipper said about JUST JOIA –

“The Mystic 60 – probably the best cruising boat of this size was the crew’s verdict after sailing 4200 nm. A fast, safe, mile-eating boat, very at home crossing oceans and beating many later models and designs. We have about 50 trans-atlantics between us so it’s a fair sample of what’s available!”

On arrival in the UK, the owner instructed the Berthon Boat Company to bring her up to her normal high standard of cosmetic and operational readiness for cruising. She has also been fully decommissioned, and is ready to be viewed. Work carried out includes –

  • Winterize main engine and generator and repaint generator base tray.
  • Prove fresh water system and replace pump and accumulator.
  • Full polish of hull and superstructure.
  • Full treatment of teak decks.
  • Review headlinings and refix as needed.
  • Review interior lighting and ensure that all is working well.
  • Repairs to joinery and re-varnishing as needed throughout the interior.
  • New engine room insulation where required.
  • Update to distribution panel.
  • Service steering gear.
  • Fully service main inlet seacocks.
  • Fully service fuel system.
  • Reseal stanchion bases and replace internal stay.
  • Repair mast boot.
  • New anodes and antifoul.
  • Repair mast hydraulics.
  • Hatches resealed as needed (2021).
  • Refrigeration overhauled (2021).

Owner’s Comments

JUST JOIA is in excellent condition. The specifications have been significantly upgraded through two major refits and the onboard equipment inventory is extensive and comprehensive including many spares and custom tools.

JUST JOIA has made five trans-Atlantic crossings and cruised the Caribbean, East Coast of the USA, Atlantic Islands, (Bermuda, Azores, Madeira, Canaries), Western Mediterranean and NW Europe as far north as 70 o N in Norway.

By way of history, this boat was designed by German Frers with interior ash wood design by Petter Yran, was built by the Ta Shing Yacht Building Company, Tainan, Taiwan in 1990 for Alan Morgan Yachting and sold for US$ 585,000 to a Norwegian owner, Mr. Harald Jakhelln and launched as Korsar III. For a while, she was offered for charter from Antigua. Mr. Jakhelln sold to Mr. Chris Shave in 1999, when she was registered in Gibraltar as Mystique of Gibraltar. We bought from Mr. Shave in Mallorca in 2003. Hence, JUST JOIA is the third boat name for what is Hull 7 in the Mystic 60 range. We are aware of 12 Mystic 60’s as listed below, (both white and blue hulled sloops with one letter box red ketch, Red Hackle. A few have taller racing masts and deeper keels, one of which is ours. Our keel just short of 3m (just short of 10 ft) and we need 22m (72 ft) clearance height under bridges etc.).

German Frers Designer’s Comments (1990)

“While sailing back from the Fastnet a few years ago with Alan Morgan, we set to define what would in our minds be the ideal yacht.

Very soon we agreed she had to be fast and elegant, to have a nice motion at sea, be responsive and lively but at the same time strong and comfortable. We were dreaming of a hot shower and cozy dry berth, a galley where to cook and a big comfortable saloon. A functional deck so that she could be handled as easily as the racing boat we were sailing, but without as many crew, (whose personalities were beginning to impose on everybody). A lot of time was dedicated to arguing about pros and cons of the centre cockpit versus the aft cockpit without being able to come to a conclusion. Adding up everything we arrived at the conclusion that the hull had to be between 55 and 62 ft, long, with moderate draught and spade rudder.

Alan was so enthusiastic with the results of our discussion that he decided there and then these were to be the basic parameters to be used for the design of the new MYSTIC 60, a yacht I am proud to have drawn.”
