Yes, the CHRISTIANNE, one of the faster, more comfortable, safe and most looked at boat which has ever circled the earth is for sale. Why do I want to sell? I really don't want to but Elizabeth says enough long distance cruising! I don't see why she should say this with only a dozen trips to Bermuda, lots of trips up and down the East Coast, several to Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, three Trans-Atlantics and a complete circumnavigation, how can she possibly have her fill? She is right however, I have sailed it solo on several ocean passages but that too is losing its shine and I have many other things to do so the time is here.
Below is a short description but can't tell the whole story. Contact me for complete info and tour. The cost is less than one half replacement value so don't haggle me and no brokers please. I am looking to sell a super boat to a nice person that can sail her. She will take you anywhere you wish to go.

A rare find! Only a limited number of these boats were made in France and very few imported into the US. . This is the largest of Jeanneau's Ocean Racing Series and while this boat has not been raced, sister ships have achieved an impressive racing record in Europe. She was purchased new for the purpose of long distance cruising in a fast, safe manner. Her speed allowed me to sail her in a comfortable, conservative style and still make better speed than most other boats. She can easily be sailed by two people and I have single handed on many ocean passages. Several 240 mile days have been recorded. Distance measured was not via the knot log or interpolated from a few hours of sailing, but real world, GPS point to point 24 hour sailing which means the distance was probably greater. This was not done with a full crew and spinnaker but a comfortable sail with a crew of two people and a poled out Genoa. This is the owners version with a large stateroom forward with en suite head,
desk/dressing table with a revolving chair and hanging locker. The saloon is large and bright using Canadian Maple and Brazilian Moabi wood. A fixed dining table can seat 10, refrigerator and ice box 4 burner Force Ten propane stove and oven, large Nav station with storage and instrument panel. Two deep SS sinks with hot and cold pressure water, a saltwater tap and filtered drinking water tap. All this plus granite counter tops, leather trim make it a posh , fast cruising yacht. Two double quarter berths and an aft head complete the picture. All staterooms have room lights, accent and reading lights, fans, hanging lockers and drawer storage. There is a separate, watertight anchor locker, with a Tigress Windless and behind that a very large sail locker which is used as crew berths in some yachts. This has a watertight bulkhead about 1/3 of the way up and will keep the hull from flooding if the bow is breached. Numerous handhold's and hand rails running the length of the cabi
n make it safe in a rough seaway. A Yanmar 72 hp engine provides ve
The boat was designed along the lines of the BOC challenge 60ft long distance racers. She is pure function with rod rigging, three swept back spreaders allowing tight sheeting angles without running back stays. The deck is kept clean with retractable cleats, running rigging hidden under the deck, and the anchor windless recessed into the anchor locker. It has two forward furling systems, the Genoa and slightly further aft the staysail, which breaks up the sail area allowing for easy reefing. The furling drums are recessed maintaining ultra clean lines. The staysail can have a large overlap and trimmed tightly which is the same system used on the IACC yachts. The main has full battens, rides on Harken Battcars and with lazy jacks easy to handle. There are recessed hand holds running the length of the deck. The cockpit is large with seats long enough for a 6 footer to stretch out for a nap with very large lockers beneath. The cockpit can be converted to an outdoor saloon for en
tertaining at anchor with a table fitted over the winch. All hardware is Harken and oversized. All rigging is lead back to the cockpit so sail trimming and fair lead changes can be made easily and safely. A large racing type steering wheel coupled with a semi balanced spade rudder make steering a smooth, effortless task, done with two fingers. The transom has a double function, at sea it is in the closed position, inclined as on a Nordic racer. At anchor, the transom swivels open to reveal teak steps down to the waterline and a SS ladder that extends into the water for easy transfer to dingies, swimming or just stepping off onto a Mediterranean dock. This is a very strong boat, it has Kevlar throughout the hull, not just reinforced areas that lesser boats have. The chain plates and grid system that they are tied into are massive structures.
The boat comes with many extras and spares too numerous to list here and is seriously for sale by it's first and only owner. Delivery anywhere in the world can be arranged. Price, $289,000, half of the replacement cost.
