Ocean 60' 60 Schooner, Compleat rebuild
OCEAN SPIRIT has been completely rebuilt with all systems professionally replaced or rebuilt. The process has taken two years full time for two to three men and occasionally more. And of course it goes without saying that she must be seen to be understood and appreciated, which will not be easily accomplished with today's closed borders. However, for those willing to trust, offers may be made and delivery may be arranged up island.
Further to the Ocean 60s nature, this real, completely redone and proven cruising yacht is capable of exceptional, extended, comfortable passage making, having in her CV, long legs and great form for a comfortable motion at sea. The Ocean 60's have proven time and time again to be exceptional and classic cruising boats of the highest ability, crossing oceans in inconvenient weather and less than desirable conditions.
And OCEAN SPIRIT is NOT a tired old boat; rather, just the opposite: a rebuilt, perfected, renewed, refined cruising yacht ready to take an owner on long passages to extreme latitudes. Her systems are nearly all new or rebuilt and she is exceptional.
This broker has not seen this boat but has sold other boats for the gentleman who owns her and can attest with confidence, whatever this owner does is exceptional, proper, safe.
