Broker’s Comments

We have been involved with the Challenge fleet for many years and we follow the Challenge fleet closely and XPLORE is a yacht that we know well. Significantly refitted in Plymouth before departing for Ushuaia and an exciting program of sailing in the ice and world oceans, she has become well known both for the great sailing that she offers and the exacting standards of maintenance. We are now offering for sale not just a Challenge 67 but also a business profile and all the social media and other contacts that she is operating with now.

The Challenge 67 is an unbreakable blue water cruising yacht which is capable of exploring any of the world’s oceans. XPLORE offers the opportunity to take on a business and a yacht which is already well know and which will offer a fantastic, and life changing new way of life.

Owner’s Comments

Rarely do sailing yachts meet the reality and expectations of being “World Capable”. XPLORE is one of those rare creations.

Designed by UK renowned naval architect David Thomas in conjunction with Bureau Vertitas, the design brief was to create a world circumnavigating yacht that would safely and reliably go to the ends of the earth, a Range Rover of the oceans.

With virtually no budget constraints, the best materials and equipment were brought together, and the results, mile after mile have proven itself.

XPLORE has been owned and run for 10 years by a professional mariner and sailor who’s attention to detail and maintenance standards, mean that XPLORE is ready to continue great sailing adventures and projects.

Expedition projects are what XPLORE has done well, the right yacht, set up and professional can more than pay its own way, but deliver excellent results, anywhere in the world.

XPLORE comes with an existing website marketing and social media. There is an extensive and detailed new owner training period to ensure a smooth transition into XPLORE.

As a proven business operation for ten years, the yacht is fully equipped and prepared as a “Turn Key” platform that will take you to your dream places and pay for it.
