The continued respect and admiration these extraordinary yachts have inspired over the years have established a cult-like following for serous cruisers and ocean explorers around the world and turn every head in every anchorage they happen to glide in around the world. Each Steve Dashew design went through considerable testing before being finalised, including extensive CAD, modelling and tank testing, a time-consuming and costly design method which was systematically used in the creation of sailing ships of lore, but abandoned in later years to quicken production. The difference in the result is incomparable.  Imagine a yacht with no bad habits, extraordinarily powerful but without the limits of hull speed and its broaching dangers (Bucephalus can surf a wave at 17 knots without disturbing the chef in the galley)… a yacht capable of conquering distances effortlessly no matter the ocean conditions, yet as comfortable as a superyacht but without the complications and costly maintenance.  Steve Dashew dedicated his life to designing boats without limits, at home in every latitudes, yet easy to understand and maintain no matter where you are in the world.  The real freedom of cruising is to be self-reliant and able to maintain and repair anything if needed, even when far from sophisticated marine facilities. He designed yachts of genius yet simple and easy to understand in all of their components. This Deerfoot 62.2 is one of only 4 built in the world and which all share the same characteristics of safety, strength, reliance and comfort. Beyond this, anyone who has had the honour to step above Bucephalus and learn about her will agree that she is one of the finest Steve Dashew yacht in the world.  When her owner, a gifted American sailor and scientist decided to have a yacht built for him and his family to explore the world, he wanted perfection, luxury, power and most of all a yacht that was exhilarating to sail in all conditions.  In 1987, the Deerfoot 62.2 design was well ahead of its time, with such modern features as a an elongated skeg firmly supporting the sturdy, well-shaped rudder, able to give the yacht exquisite manoeuvrability but also the modern comfort and ease of handling such as being able to reverse the yacht in a straight line and glide effortlessly into a tight marina berth with none of the prop-walk effects usually found on yachts built on such classic lines.  The name ‘Deerfoot’ will inspire admiration and envy, but Bucephalus is one of a kind.  Steve Dashew designs have been built all around the world and by a variety of boat builders, although almost every Deerfoot or Sundeer owners wanted to match the excellence of the design with a renewed builder approved by Steve Dashew.  Bucephalus’ her owner wanted the very best. Built without a price point, her owner specifically chose Nils Luoma of Nykarleby, Finland, who worked closely with Steve Dashew to ensure that the yacht was built in every detail to follow the designer and owner’s recommendations and to exceed expectations.  For example, the hull had to be extra-strong and integrate an extensive range of safety features to make this veritable hound of the sea capable of reaching any destination safely, such as the three water-tight bulkheads (plus the mid-ship fourth bulkhead designed to restrict and slow water-ingress), stainless steel keel with winglet-style lead shoe, a very avant-guard design which prove itself a work of genius. As a proper go-anywhere ship they also wanted a real engine room full workshop and easy access to every component of the boat from immediate access to the hull, systems, electrics, chain plates, plumbing, rudder post, steering quadrant etc.  Every component of this yacht was carefully chosen, over-engineered for strength and to last forever no matter the sea miles and weather caprices. As an example, the higher-than average stanchion still gleam as if they were just new in spite of being original. Another good example are the cupbard push-botton and down the littlest hinge, which every boat owner will know as things that stick and break after just a few years of use, but which on Bucephalus are as shiny and reliable as the day they were installed.  The beautiful timber floor was just re polished and varnished, but it also looks brand new. The timber fit-out, with typically Scandinavian detail has not aged or suffered the smallest cuff or moisture mark, the upholstery, of genuine, beautiful cream leather is un-stained, of top quality and will hold its beauty for years to come. Strikingly, the interior is ultra-modern for a yacht of this era, with light colour, wide-open space where luxury is visible from the quality of the timber used down to the smallest fittings. Bucephalus can sail into any anchorage around the world and instantly marks its presence with her grace and “Wow Factor”. She certainly is an imposing presence. Yet her innumerable qualities are noted through and through and in every detail big or small. This is a yacht that has few equals in the world and the eye-watering expenses into building this superb yacht continued through the entire history of her ownership and with the devoted attention of her professional skipper and caretaker. If something needs doing, it is immediately done, with the same attention to detail and search for perfection which is the trademark of Bucephalus throughout a generation on the ocean from the day she first took shape on Steve Dashew’s drawing board and which remained consistent each and every day. Bucephalus is an object of beauty and power, who like her namesake, Alexander the Great’s mythical horse, will open to you freedom only few dream about. She comes to you in turn-key condition and with everything you need to begin writing your own story without further expenses and with the genuine assistance, should you wish, of her captain of 27 years years. In spite of her power, she is a dream to sail, even solo or short-handed, and would make a perfect exploring home for a family. Her rigging is brand new, her three-year old engine, a reliable Yanmar specifically chosen without the complication of electronic controls will ensure reliability and ease of maintenance no matter where you are in the world. Her sails and in fact all of her canvas are in beautiful condition and currently being completely overhauled by the renowned Alan Marshall Sail Loft in Nadi.  Her hull was re-sprayed with Allgrip in 2012 and polished again in 2021. it is simply gleaming in the Royal Blue favoured by her owner, who now also owns a superyacht of the same trademark, beautiful colour. Her interior is spotless, fresh and luxurious. Bucephalus is equipped with all the equipment needed for unlimited offshore travel and self-sustainability, and comes with a fully equipped workshop and a long list of equipment and spares. Read on for the full description, which will include a thorough section written by her captain, who after almost 3 decades aboard knows this extraordinary ship in every detail and who generously graciously offers his continued help, advice and expertise to Bucephalus’s new family.  I heard it say that you do not chose a yacht… a yacht choses you. Bucephalus is simply so far above the rest… If she chooses you and becomes your obsession, she will not disappoint you. She is a yacht to be loved and trusted with all your heart, who will keep you safe and not let you down, providing of course that you also treat her with respect and simple, regular maintenance. She is a yacht for someone who wants adventure and who loves sailing in its purest, exhilarating form.

  7. Morgan 416 Out Island

    Morgan 416 Out Island

    Beaufort, South Carolina, United States
    1986
    $68,684

    PENDING SALE     One of the most popular sailboats ever built! Almost 1500 41's were built from 71'-91'. This 416, commissioned in 82', benefits from numerous upgrades incorporated from 11 years of on-the-water experience by the Morgan team. One such improvement of Restless Ketch is increased sail area due to the tall-rig (60') with a high-aspect fully-battened main (2 reefs), removable inner forestay (optional staysail), battened mizzen (2 reefs), huge furling genoa, and serviceable spinnaker. Numerous sail configurations are possible to suit the conditions. Her heavy (9,000 lbs of lead), shallow (4.2'), and full keel protects her large rudder, gives stability and control in seas, wind, and at anchor, while still empowering the skipper to explore shallow waters for snorkeling reef or anchoring in protected nooks where few boats her size can go. These are a few of the reasons for her many years of popularity in the Caribbean waters, especially the Bahamas. We live aboard and cruise with her from SC, FL, Mexico, Belize and Guatemala making numerous off shore 4+ night passages and spent several years sailing the shallow, exotic and tropical waters of Belize eating fresh fish, lobster, and conch. Living the Life. You could do this with her too! Her center cockpit design incorporates a spacious aft cabin with its own entrance. It has a comfortable custom berth, multiple closets and storage areas, and a private head/shower. A custom solid Teak and Holly sole was installed professionally in Guatemala in 2017. 1 companionway, 1 large hatch, and 6 portlights with rain guards and screens provide ventilation. The forward cabin is a V-berth featuring a large double bed with large shelves and multiple drawers for storage. A custom solid teak and holly sole was installed here as well. 1 large hatch and 4 screened portlights provide ventilation. The salon's furnishings include a large, easily stowed teak table, a large L shaped settee on stbd and a large straight settee on Port . Both settees have built in shelves behind them, as well as storage lockers under the seat and behind the backrest. The table folds down beside the stbd settee and becomes a double berth. 2 large hatches, 1 companionway, and 4 portlights provide ventilation. The second head/shower is located between the V-berth and the salon and directly across from it is a large hanging closet. The galley shares space with the salon so the chef is always part of the fun. The fridge/freezer makes and keeps ice. A large double SS sink, gimbled 3 burner stove and oven, filtered water tap and adequate counter space creates an “at sea” friendly galley. The original, not functioning, engine driven freezer, located under chart table, is our drink storage locker. We easily slept 6 adults (including us) onboard for overnight charters and even passages. Plus, there is ample head room for anyone 6' tall. We have a dutch friend who is much taller than 6', and he was very comfortable. She is roomy, comfortable, and conveniently designed. The ample space in the engine room is located under the cockpit and is accessible from the walk-through hall way, which is so much easier to access than the under the stairs access or under the sole in the bilge, often found on monohulls. There is room to sit on both sides of the engine, and the heart of the boat is located there. The 12V fridge compressor and condenser, the battery charger, the batteries, the AC, the fuel switches, the wind generator controls, and the solar charge controller are all located in the engine room. In 2003, a new Yanmar 4JH3E was professionally installed. This model is one of the best yanmars and with the low hours, has many, many years of reliable service ahead. The motor mounts, starter, and alternator were replaced in 2017 before cruising. The prop shaft and coupling, cutlass bearing, intermediate support bearing, and the reinforced bellow for drippless stuffing box were new in 2017 and the prop was balanced professionally. Regular maintenance was performed throughout the life of the engine and drive train. She has been very good to us, and us to her. At the helm, the touchscreen B&G chart plotter with Navionics, transducer and water speed, and anemometer provide accurate location, speed, depth, and wind info. The steering uses aviation grade hydraulics with a very recently (2020 all new seals and new fluid) serviced ram. The auto pilot is also hydraulic and even though the course computer is old, maintains course with the best of them and uses relatively little power. In 2020, we hauled out in Rio Dulce, Guatemala and completed a proper bottom job that included the removal of all the gel coat below the water line, multiple months of active drying followed by 6 coats of West System Epoxy as the barrier coat and 3 coats of high copper oxide modified epoxy hard bottom paint. The topsides and sheer stripe were professionally painted with a high grade 2 part automotive paint. Very few vessels on the current market can compare to this type of value in an offshore capable yacht. A perfect boat for those who want to comfortably and affordably take up the cruising lifestyle. We have certainly enjoyed our 6 years living and cruising aboard her.
