Classic Yachts For Sale
Classic Yachts are classified as single hull sail yacht and the yachts executed in the traditions of past centuries. What exactly does the term “classic yacht” mean?
It is hard to answer in one sentence: with every decade more and more types become “classic”.
What defines a classic from a modern yacht?
First of all – ‘classic’ is the construction of sails with manual control. There can not be any electronics by definition.
Second – there’s no engine. A classic yacht is controlled by sails only. There are no engines for emergency purposes.
The third – is the material from which the yacht hull is made. More often classic yachts are made from wood.
The main advantage of these yachts is the absence of any upgrades and technological improvements that don’t contribute to the speed. Handling the ‘classic’ is possible only due to the skill and experience of its owner.
Anyone from a beginner to a seasoned seaman can buy a classic. It is an ideal tool for those who want to learn the basics.
Most classic sailboats for sale are pre-owned models that may have been around for many years but are sought out by sailors who have an appreciation for classics, history, and the finer things in life. Classic sailboats are special in that they appear to have a story of interesting voyages to tell.
