‘RAPTURE’ & ‘RL NOOR’ for sale with YPI

RAPTURE                                      “Fast cruiser with worldwide cruising capability”

Following two other recent Southern Wind newbuild sales by YPI, the 30-metre cruising sloop, ‘RAPTURE’, designed by Bruce Farr Yacht Design with interiors by Nauta is now for sale exclusively with YPI Brokerage.

Built in 2007 by renowned South African shipyard, Southern Wind, ‘RAPTURE’ shows off an intelligent Bruce Farr design, delivering exhilarating sailing speeds along with a luxurious interior comfortably accommodating up to eight guests in a very successful four-cabin layout offering two doubles and two twins.

“RAPTURE is the fifth in the highly popular and very successful 100DS line of advanced composite yachts developed by Southern Wind,” explains William Bishop, Head of YPI’s specialist Sailing Yacht arm. “Southern Wind are renowned not only for the quality and attention to detail on their builds but also the level of support they provide to all owners of Southern Wind yachts.
“With only one owner since delivery, RAPTURE is a superbly maintained example of the 100DS line. Her easily driven lightweight construction means she is exciting to sail in all conditions, an important plus for Mediterranean based clients. Compared to an aluminium yacht of the same size, she has amazing interior volume for owner, guests, crew and storage and her layout allows for good separation between crew and guests as required.”

The perfect yacht for family use, ocean racing and luxury charter, RAPTURE offers the ultimate in style, comfort and performance with a spacious, clean deck and panoramic deck salon with dining area for up to 10 people on the port side.
Built in compliance with commercial regulations and in accordance with RINA Class, RAPTURE also benefits from recent refits carried out in 2013 and 2014 with new standing rigging and sails and topsides and hull fully repainted.
“RAPTURE is ideal for any new owner wanting minimal capital investment going forward,” explains Will. “She is a versatile yacht that offers a lot to its owner and guests. She is very competitively priced and in superb condition. For an owner looking not only to enjoy his yacht but also benefit from significant charter revenue, there is no better option on the market today – and RAPTURE’s excellent four-cabin configuration will ensure she continues to enjoy strong demand for years to come. Those considering purchasing a yacht like her should arrange a visit sooner rather than later. We suspect she will not remain on the market for very long.”

RAPTURE is now for sale with YPI at an Asking Price of EUR 4,375,000.

“The cabins are superbly spacious,” adds Russell. “They make excellent use of the large amount of natural light that comes in through well-placed oversized windows.”
For guests, RL NOOR offers numerous socialising areas both inside and on deck, zero-speed stabilisers for maximum comfort whether at anchor or in port and over 17 tons of insulation for the ultimate in noise and vibration-free yachting.
A very fuel efficient yacht, RL NOOR cruises at a comfortable 12 knots.

For anyone looking for contemporary style with performance and efficiency, warmth, comfort, excellent entertainment and communications facilities and some very good charter revenue potential, RL NOOR should be one on the list to visit and soon.”
