Broker's Comments

Based on a design of a Van de Stadt Castle 48, this impressive blue water cruiser is equipped with some great deck gear, a good suit of sails and has acres of space both above and below deck.

In need of total refurbishment down below and a full rewire, this isn't a project for the faint hearted.

However, the 2005 engine was run up as recently as December 2019 (see video) and the generator has only been run for a minimum of hours. I'd hazard a guess that the on deck winches alone are worth half the asking price of this Ocean Flyer 50, which also comes fitted with a feathering prop.

Have you got what it takes to take this project on to completion? Who is going to be first past the post to acquire this potential beauty?
