This sailboat for sale can accommodate up to eight people in four cabins, with a captain’s cabin that can be used as an additional cabin for two more people. The large master cabin sports a desk and comfortable seating, while the remaining cabins all have private controlled air conditioning and ample storage space.
Helen sports an interior reminiscent of a period country house, while maintaining modern comforts, including Wi-Fi and televisions. Her traditional main saloon hosts twin sofas and welcoming bookshelves, with natural light streaming through numerous portholes.
Outside, the yacht’s expansive deck space is perfect for socializing fore and aft and al fresco dining amidships. In 2012 she was fitted with a new boom, sail plan and bowsprit based on the original 1910 sail plan.
Under power, she has a top speed of 13 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots.
Helen asks for €12,000,000.
