ALCHEMY sailing Yacht

Builder Hanse Yachts
Built/Refit 2015 / 2018
Guests 6 in 3 cabins

ALCHEMY offers a high-volume interior, a large and well-protected cockpit, and unmatched performance in most yachts her size. The boat features a design concept shaped to be fast and comfortable for offshore cruising with improved sea-keeping qualities.  The current owner has customized her for offshore cruising and all systems are proven by 26,000 miles in the Pacific in the past four years.

The yacht can be sailed easily by just one or two people, thanks to powered winches and a cockpit layout that places the helmsman within easy reach of the winches and a clear view of the sails and approaching seas.  She is truly set up for safe, comfortable extended single-handed or shorthanded sailing.

The deck is very spacious and offers a functional full transom which features a sunbathing area and dinghy garage.

ALCHEMY’s interior has been designed to maximize living space, with plenty of natural light while remaining absolutely practical. The large, open saloon is based around a spacious navigation station, and benefits greatly from hull windows, coach-roof ports, and wide hatches, giving both natural illumination and exterior views.

Moving forward from the saloon, a generously sized Owners cabin boasts the ambiance, proportions, and privacy normally reserved for much larger yachts, in addition to two symmetrical aft guest cabins.

Quote from the Owner: “I have sailed Alchemy more than 30,000 nautical miles and over 20,000 nautical miles of that distance I was sailing solo and usually hundreds of miles offshore. I have seen every type of weather from dead calms to violent line squalls and tropical depressions. Mirror calm to 7 plus metres, following to just off the bow, breaking seas. In all that time and distance, I never doubted Alchemy’s integrity or innately forgiving design. The additions I made to the basic vessel made her an even safer vessel for both solo sailing and for the many times I have sailed with precious cargo on board. Grandchildren and the children and grandchildren of good friends.”
