She is worth every penny.  

Layout and Design

General Description

‘Red Sky’ is a 30m/100ft composite sloop of German Frers design built by Oy Nautor Ab (Nautors Swan) in Pietersaari, Finland. Custom built for her single owner, she has been managed and maintained by a professional crew of three since her launch in 2003. ‘Red Sky’ has never been chartered or raced. The yacht has been used exclusively for family sailing and seen very light use.

Summering in Maine and wintering in the BVI's, ‘Red Sky’ has received an annual pre-cruise preparation and maintenance at Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding in Thomaston, Maine.  In addition, she underwent an extensive 8-month refit in 2011-2012. The owner has given generous priority to ensuring that ‘Red Sky’ is always kept in Bristol condition, both mechanically and cosmetically.

She comfortably sleeps up to 6 guests aboard with an after master stateroom and two guest cabins. A 7th guest can be accommodated in a pullman bunk in the port guest cabin.  There are two additional crew cabins forward that provide berthing for up to 4 crew. The two berthing areas are well separated, providing a sense of privacy for both.

The recently painted hull is brilliant red Awl-Grip with snow white cove and waterline stripes and a black anitfouling bottom. The teak deck is glued with epoxy using a vacuum bag system, eliminating screw penetrations of the deck.  The trunk cabin was recently painted with oyster white Awl-Grip with a similar epoxy glued teak decking system on the cabin top.

The reverse transom is fitted with a mechanical "garage door" for access to the yachts' tender, dive gear and other toys. When the "door" is fully deployed this provides a superb platform for all sorts of water activities. The "garage" is sealed from the interior of the vessel via a watertight bulkhead and is finished inside with oyster white awlgrip paint.

The cockpit has a molded U-shaped settee and table and twin helm stations, each with their own bolster. Forward of the cockpit settee is the aft end of the cabin house is a built-in refrigerator, storage compartments, and a starboard companionway that leads to the main salon below. The cockpit and helm have respective full width canvas awnings that can be deployed for sun protection when the main sail is furled underway or at anchor. There is a full width canvas dodger for ocean spray and wind protection which can be hidden in a recessed tunnel plus a small entry companionway dodger for day sailing or when lesser windage is desired. All of these offer excellent protection from the elements either underway or at anchor.

The main salon features a settee to starboard of the entry stairs, and a large oval dining table with curved seating that is perfectly elevated allowing for tremendous visibility.  A wet bar and glassware cabinet are immediately aft, adjacent to a centered passageway leading to the master aft stateroom with matching guest cabins to each side.  Each stateroom features an ensuite head. Returning to the main salon, a nav station is just forward. This area contains the service panel and vessel monitoring system.  A door leads to the engine room located directly beneath the salon. To the port of the nav station is a large galley featuring built-in refrigerators and freezers with considerable storage in cabinets and drawers.  Forward of the galley are the port and starboard crew cabins with private heads and a shared shower.

The interior of the entire yacht is finished with satin varnished teak bulkheads, cabinetry and sole.  The overhead is finished with soft acoustic Ultra-Leather fabric. Lighting throughout is 24V halogen overhead recessed lighting, incandescent side lamps, all with bulkhead mounted switches. Additional rope lighting in the salon and throughout the yacht provides warm illumination. DC LED lighting in the engine room.

The exterior of the vessel has exceptional navigational and hazard lighting, in addition to LED lighting set into boom and spreaders and underwater lighting.
