1992 S.Y. Craftsman's Art

Originally built to, what were at the time, the latest Commercial regulations for Charter yachts, she has been continually upgraded and improved over the years to the 'stunning' condition in which she is today. The latest modification was to increase her draught to improve her sailing performance upwind and, for a schooner, that is saying something!

For a sailing yacht of her size the Master Stateroom aft has to be seen to be believed; full width of the yacht and incorporating a King size double bed, with shower / toilet en-suite, and enough hanging space and locker area for the most discerning guest.

The two Guest Twins, whilst smaller, both have en-suite facilities as you would expect and still plenty of space for the 'Going ashore rig' .

The Deck Saloon leads down to the main Saloon and Dining area - with delightful carved rails and varnished woodwork it is hard to believe that she is just 15 years old as she exudes character of a much more mature vessel. There are not many yachts of her size that can boast a writing table (should you wish to spend time below) but you can always use the headed notepaper to send word to your friends of what they are missing!

The Cockpit, where most likely you will spend most of your time, is expansive and comfortable with a Bimini cover to provide occasional respite for the most ardent 'sun-worshipper' to be able to take a cocktail in comfort. However, should you so wish, the Cockpit tables can be converted to one large Dining Table so that up to 12 people can be seated for Dinner - invited guests - or for canapés and cocktails for a Reception at some special event.

"Craftsman's Art" has been maintained to be one of the most comfortable cruising yachts of her type and it shows with the attention to detail in every cabin and social space. It goes without saying that the Captain and crew were  selected so that there should be nothing left to chance; once aboard you are on 'your' yacht for as long as you wish and, with the expansive range of equipment available there should never be a 'dull' moment. If water-sports are of interest you can water-ski, sail the 'Topper' dinghy,literally 'paddle your own canoe' or go windsurfing. Needless to say snorkeling equipment is also provided.
