A rare beauty, incredibly well preserved! Only 17 of these beauties were ever made from a design penned by New Zealand’s Salthouse brothers. Built tough and strong by Dong Sung Venus in South Korea. She is a center cockpit, ketch rigged cutter, 6'6" Draft, allowing many options for sailing and ease of handling. These boats have been compared to Hallberg-Rassey, Amel and Vagabond for their quality and ruggedness.

Below decks is gorgeous Teak throughout. She maintains her light and airy feel with many opening hatches and portlights. She is cruise-equipped with comfortable accommodations in 2 separate en-suite staterooms plus a double-sized passaging berth, spacious main salon, full navigation equipment, a full galley, easy access to her engine and fuel tanks, generous storage, watermaker, generator….the works!

Above decks you get a beautiful Teak deck with hard lifelines all around for safety, many possible sail configurations depending on the conditions, a protected center cockpit with lines that lead to it for safety, a removeable swim platform and many more extras that only liveaboard would know are truly useful!

"SILVER FOG" has been with her current owner since 2008 and pride of ownership and knowledge are readily apparent in the boat’s meticulous upkeep and maintenance. Be the new proud owner of this rare and impressive Venus sailboat and make your cruising dreams come true. You won’t need to spend all your money nor time getting a solid boat ready to go!
