General Details

SERENGETI's hi-end design and build out put her in a category rarely seen. She is dual purpose in all respects, allowing her to cruise in luxury, very fast. Built by Ian Franklin in New Zealand, she is a yacht of tremendous innovations and caliber. The light, open interior layout has three staterooms, one having a real centerline queen bed with full head ensuite, two heads, a lovely salon, and a wonderful in line style galley.

Her innovative features are quite well engineered and thought out based on her owners’ years of sailing background. For example, the furling unit is set under deck to clear the deck of un-needed hazards and to allow a deep low tack for head-sails that can be set and peeled using the double groove foil; the sheet stoppers run thru coamings further reducing clutter; her covered navigation area in the cockpit protects a full screen computer. Her interior woods are composite for light weight, all the while, being of a design and execution on far more expensive yachts. She has generator, air conditioning, an easily accessed engine area, gorgeous galley you would not expect on a 60 footer.

Her construction utilizes a combination of Aramid (Kevlar) and E-Glass fibers yielding stiff and strong structure also extremely resistant to impact. The lifting keel is fitted into an integral box structure allowing cruising in shallower areas. For those seeking an exceptional, strong, great looking, fast, family cruising yacht, this is not one to miss. 

Inventory of two Shipping containers, along with additional detail photos available upon request. She is only for sale due to her owners change in sailing plans.

Hull construction SERENGETI was built using Aramid and E-Glass fibers over foam cores. The result is a very stiff hull with minimal weight, exceptionally stronger and more durable that straight fibreglass. The keel box for the lifting keel effectively secures the hull, deck and internal structure together into a complete unit. The cockpit is very roomy and comfortable in both racing and cruising modes. The dual mode dodgers offer full protection of the main hatchway and forward end of the cockpit. There is a dedicated life raft locker at the forward end of the cockpit which hold one of the two rafts. Included in the purchase is a custom built cradle that can be broken down so that it fits inside a standard 20' shipping container. Construction - Aramid & Epoxy over foam core.
