Monfalcone Venice Italy|
It is with a heavy heart that we put up for sale our wonderful sailing yacht Fandancer. She is a Northstar 80/20 built by Sparkman & Stevens in the year of 1973.
She has previously crossed the Atlantic and has been predominantly sailing around Greece and Croatia for the past 7 or so years.
She underwent a refit approximately 8 years ago now where she had new sails, engine and interior fitted. This was completed by long time owners with the view of spending the retirement on the boat but sadly had to sell due to medical complications. With that being said, she has been fitted in such a way that makes her a fantastic live aboard boat and a joy to be on.
Alas, it has not been an easy decision to decide to sell, but as we will be going back to full time employment, we cannot justify keeping her and not using her as much as we would like.
