PATIENCE is an exceptional, no compromise cruising yacht. She was originally used in Canada, before being bought by the owner of the Royal Van Dam Shipyard, for his own use. She is carefully designed so that she is under 15 metres and so she misses the restrictions imposed on yachts larger than this in Northern European and Mediterranean waters. Her original construction is of the highest quality and her interior is executed in warm rosewood. She is easily handled, with moderate draft and she has a spacious layout below decks with a protected cockpit and lots of deck space above. Her current owner has refitted her substantially and the work was carried out in Holland in 2014/15.  The refit has totally upgraded the yacht in all respects and the intelligent and unfussy use of modern technology to make her ready for today’s yachting is beautifully done. Works carried out include paint, rig, electronics and a full systems overhaul.

After her passage from Lymington to the Canaries this Autumn it was decided to replace the Nordia drive solution with a standard water lubricated rubber bearing.   A custom zinc anode was machined to fill the space between the propeller which was re-pitched and rope cutter. Near bearings, shaft, and PSS shaft seal were fitted and this was plumbed into the sea chest for water supply.   The Maxprop and transmission interface plate were lapped in to guarantee proper alignment and to lock the shaft tappers.  The yacht has just had new antifouling and the rudder has been regressed.  Some other details were also attended to such as the installation of a safety rail in front of the cooker and spring restraints in the galley for the cabinet doors.   PATIENCE is now ready for ocean sailing and she is offered at an attractive price point.
