Beautiful deck saloon blue water cruiser designed by Bill Dixon
(Her name is to be retained)

SANDIA CREST was built at Northney Marina, UK, by the former employees of Premier Yachts. Premier Yachts were a highly regarded custom boat builder specialising in steel and aluminium blue water cruising yachts designed by Bill Dixon. Sadly the company ran into financial trouble after a devasting fire at their premises. The owner was fortunate in being able to retain the services of the skilled craftsmen of Premier Yachts to build this yacht.

Built for and by an experienced yachtsman who was involved in the build. Not only does the superior structure and design set this yacht apart, many smaller details point towards the great care with which this yacht was built. The teak decks are 11mm thick, several millimetres more than found on many production or semi-custom yachts. Other details include the height and strength of the custom made stanchions, custom roller fairleads, solid wood interior and much more.

This is an ideal opportunity for a couple or family to acquire this yacht and see the world. The reason the owner wishes to sell is simple, it is time for a reluctant change to power.

The berth in Lymington Yacht Haven is available to be taken over by the purchaser.
I have cruised extensively in Sandia Crest, with two Atlantic crossings and extended sailing in the English Channel, Mediterranean and Caribbean. It has met all my expectations for a blue water cruising yacht and it has been maintained and refitted as required. I am selling reluctantly as I feel that it is now time to switch to a motor boat.
