Where to start... A very rare opportunity to own and sail a beautifully designed Hoek 68 Semi Classic. This incredible Hoek 68 "El Pino" has been kept in an excellent state by her owners. The state of the teak deck (recaulked in 2020), the state of all stainless steel on board, the sails, the hull, the mast & boom, everything is in an immaculate state for a yacht her age. Her fully hydraulic rig and winches make her an extremely comfortable cruising yacht for short handed sailing, despite her size. She is well powered with a 185hp Perkins engine through a vario pitch propellor and a hydraulic 2-speed bowthruster. Everything looks and feels like new and that is very much thanks to the love, attention, upgrades and maintenance she has received throughout the years. Though her beauty and character make her somewhat hard to replace, she is ready to take on her new owners and sail the seven seas.
