Sparkman & Stephens 62
Opua, Bay of Islands Marina
From the legendary designers Sparkman and Stephens, this 62ft classic yacht is a sight to behold.
Sparkman and Stephens established in 1929 are world renown for their design of Swan and Americas Cup racers. Olen Stephens is known particularly as one of the most sort after designers of his time after his involvement with the famous J-class yacht Ranger. He went on to design and build sixteen 12m Americas Cup boats.
The sleek, elegant lines signature to the S&S racing design translate throughout their works, and are a feature that makes this cruising yacht fast and comfortable.
Unusually for a classic, this boat has a generous amount of room inside, with plenty of head room, a big saloon, three large cabins and a full-sized galley.
In the last two years, she has had a whole lot of modernization done, including:
- New electronics
- New navigation gear
- New oven and stove
- New House and Motor batteries Dec 2020
- Re- painting
- Re- varnishing
- Interior woodwork upgraded, and cabinets restored
The engine and generator have been recently serviced and overhauled, with new injectors, filters, fuel pumps and starter motor.
The standing rigging was replaced 4 years ago, and the sails are all between two and four years old.
There is a full survey available which is two years old, the basis for much of the work done.
Brigante is a truly stunning yacht that turns heads everywhere she goes. Her beautiful, clean lines and wine glass transom will appeal to a true sailor. She can be easily sailed and manoeuvred with her many winches, all of which have been serviced. A touch of Americas Cup racing alludes to the history of the design in the coffee grinder driving two winches.
This boat is ready to sail around New Zealand with 1000L of water and fuel. The main sail can be easily dropped into the stack pack, then the boom tent and bow cover can be easily zipped on for shade on deck.
She would be great for classic regattas like the Tall Ships race, or for family cruising. She has offshore capabilities and would be suitable for warm climate cruising, with the Air Conditioning inside.
