Designed for charter with 5 ensuite staterooms (4 with convertible berths) - Excellent charter history.
REE has been exceptionally well maintained to Lloyds A1 Class. She is US Duty paid and underwent an extensive refit summer 2019 at the Newport Shipyard including new paint.
SY Ree 1996 Valdettaro 112 is from the drawing board of the prestigious British naval architect office of Laurent Giles and launched in 1996 from the Italian shipyard of Valdettaro. She was conceived to be the ultimate sailing charter yacht of her time, compact enough to go anywhere yet spacious enough to accommodate 10 guests in five cabins and 6 permanent staff. Not only did she need to be roomy, she had also to sail well but promote a feeling of safety for the many charter guest who would be new to the motion of a sailing yacht. Designed and built for charter REE has an impressive charter history and steady cost deferring income - details are available on request.
There is perhaps no better testament to the success of the design and the quality of build than to note how many (12) were built in a sector were one-off yachts are the norm, and the number still competing effectively with much newer designs in the charter market more than 20 years on. SY Ree has made the long ocean crossing between her two seasonal chartering regions, the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, twice a year almost since she was launched, but still remains in Lloyds A1 class.
REE walk-through: Boarding the yacht via the stern on a hydraulic passarelle, that is withdraws behind a trap door when not in use, there are twin teak clad stairs to the main deck. In the center is a custom boarding ladder for easy access into the water and to provide a wide area to bring the tender across the stern for boarding and unloading. Here also is a watertight door into the lazarette with good access to the steering pumps, rudder quadrant and bearings, passarelle box, shore power box and were a large part of the yacht’s watersports inventory is stored close to were it will be deployed. A custom stainless-steel chip/chafe shoe is fitted around the stern/hull transition.
