Seller Note

Overview Avrea saw the light in Gweek near Falmouth, Cornwall in England, in a yard famous for exquisite classic and traditional wooden boatbuilding. Built over the course of 3 years and supervised by renowned naval architect Alan Pape. Avrea was commissioned and built without any compromise by master shipwright David Walkey. He constructed her using only the best Iroko, teak and mahogany panels available. Avrea is beautifully carvel-planked in Iroko with copper fastening and stainless steel screws. The deck is teak with detailing of Mahogany. Until 2017 she had benefitted from having been in one family ownership from new, having always been fastidiously and lovingly maintained. In 2017 an 18 she underwent several major restorations by her current enthusiastic owner who has undertaken a sympathetic update of paint, rig and systems and enjoyed the extensive Med tour he had planned. She is now equipped with all the latest, most modern electronics, such as a Raymarine Axiom Pro plotter, AIS, a Raymarine Quantum radar and a Whitlock autopilot, all without interfering with her classical appearance. Her interior boasts a sensational saloon, separate dining and galley. large owners suite aft, v-cabin forward as well as an excellent twin passage cabin between the owners suite and saloon. Her ketch rig is powerful yet manageable short-handed. Sensational deck spaces and really a very usable classic.
