A true tested world cruiser, sailing yacht LOCURA (22M/72’), was custom-built by Steve Dashew. Renowned for his iconic Deerfoot line that was dedicated to practical purpose-built yachts for global cruising, motor yacht LOCURA stands as the sole Deerfoot 72 ketch built in the USA. Engineered for independent offshore adventures, she is set up for shorthanded sailing and is easily operated by two people.

Yacht for sale LOCURA combines dependability and performance with an unmatched aesthetic. Her easily maintained systems are incorporated into the robust hull design, boasting proper freeboards and a wide-open flush deck. Her spacious open deck is primed to accommodate tenders and toys, while her timeless sleek design commands the attention of onlookers wherever she ventures.

Sailing yacht LOCURA's cockpit is based around ease of use, with a 7-foot-long seating area and full complement of Barient winches, all within easy reach of the helm station. The main companionway leads to a covered dodger and subsequent starboard navigation station equipped with advanced instrumentation.

Amidst her exterior splendor lies an atmosphere of pure comfort, perfect for families seeking a liveaboard experience. Yacht LOCURA embraces an open concept design, seamlessly connecting the salon, galley, and dining area. The galley, with over 20 feet of Corian counter space, was designed for the utmost convenience and functionality. The U-shaped dinette seats six comfortably, while the salon's thoughtful layout encourages relaxation and conviviality.
