Fred Parker Bermudan Cutter REDUCED!

United Kingdom Report

 Description

Fred Parker Bermudan cutter REDUCED! Designed by Fred Parker and built between 1980 and 1982. The original owners had a smaller Parker yacht beforehand and when they decided that something bigger was required, asked him to design the boat for them. The owners put together a team of highly qualified shipwrights from local east coast yards to help build the yacht and she was launched in 1982. After an interesting early history where the keel and rudder design were changed and strengthened, she was bought by the present owners in 2002 in which time she has been raced, locally cruised and has also been on an extended round Britain voyage. She has been well cared for an updated as necessary with lots of work to the deck in 2013, new electronics and equipment and a complete re-paint of topsides and underwater in 2016. One big powerful and comfortable yacht, well suited for offshore sailing and cruising with 8 good sea berths, 2 heads and huge amounts of storage space. Length on Deck 42’9″ Length Waterline 32’4″ Beam 12’9″ Draft 7’6″
