BLUE TOO SOLD 34m performance ketch built by Alloy Yachts
BLUE TOO is a superb world cruiser designed by Ron Holland globally known for his successful maxi-racers and large, performance-oriented cruising yachts. Built in 1998 by Alloy Yachts in New Zealand she has been maintained in mint condition with two full refits in 2008 and 2016. A Patton survey completed in 2019 concluded that "BLUE TOO is a well-built yacht designed for world cruising. She has been proven over her lifetime with many Transocean passages, both Atlantic and Pacific. The vessel has been maintained very well by her present owner and crew with several major refits and up-graded equipment. She is in first class cruising condition”.
BLUE TOO includes state-of-the-art equipment like in-furling booms, bow and stern thrusters and a hydraulic transom with a fold-down stairway to the bathing platform. With a total sail area of 6,675 sq ft (620 sq m) last season she won the St Barths Bucket in her class with three first place finishes and the largest cumulative margin ever recorded in the Bucket's history.
Her performance under sail is only matched by the superb quality of the Redman Whiteley Dixon interior and layout. A very interesting feature is her two-cockpit design. The spacious central cockpit offers superb seating, sailing comfort and room for al fresco dining while there is a private owner’s cockpit aft with direct access from the master stateroom.
BLUE TOO can accommodate six guests and all staterooms have entertainment centers and en-suite bathroom facilities, while a further two cabins sleep five crew.
BLUE TOO was asking USD 4,900,000.
