Broker’s Comments

Beautiful British built steel hulled go anywhere yacht. LINDA THE is in beautiful cosmetic condition but some of her systems are in need of a refresh following water damage and hence her very modest ask. Her most recent refit was 2017 and it has been conducted to a fantastic standard. She can be viewed in the video below out sailing in 2018 and is still found in this condition. She is currently lying afloat in Kiel and available for viewing.

She really is a go anywhere yacht and has a rather impressive displacement, she has however been modified in recent years to allow for her to be easily handled by a couple. With large volume she would be a fantastic yacht for travelling the World with plenty of comfortable accommodation. She really does offer a huge amount of yacht for the money. As you will read below she has been loved and cherished in this ownership for quite some time but the time has come for a new owner to step up and continue exploring with her.

Owner’s Comments

The LINDA THE has been our family sailing boat for more than 40 years. Her home is the Baltic Sea but we sailed with her also up and down the European coasts down to the Mediterranean. We have spent a lot of weekends and most of the holidays on the boat with many nice and unforgettable moments. The LINDA THE is easy to sail and has been modified to sail with only 2 persons. She is nicely decorated with a luxury flair and a lot of space. Our children have left home and have founded their own families with their own interests.

We are looking forward finding a new owner for her appreciating her capabilities, design and easy handling in a spacey and luxury atmosphere.

Note: The current asking price of LINDA THE is reflective of the fact that she needs her main engine, generator and electrical system refurbed due to water damage.
