Christened in 1994 as a custom high-performance racer/cruising sloop, the Perry 56 STEALTH CHICKEN was built on a design concept well ahead of her time. Her unique form-stability and terrific easy handling sail characteristics make her ideal for short-handed coastal sailing or any offshore long-distance racing event. Her present owner has made sure, through constant meticulous maintenance and upgrades since 2003, that she has remained both competitive and current with all her systems. As a dual-purpose performance cruising yacht, STEALTH CHICKEN is turn-key ready to cruise anywhere in the world with tremendous comfort and style. She represents an opportunity to acquire a tremendously versatile yacht at an extraordinary value for a yacht of this caliber and pedigree.
