Designed by the legendary L. Francis Herreshoff “ENCHANTRESS” was professionally built to a very high standard by SeaGlass Marine NewZealand in 1980.
Having only had two owners from new she is in pristine condition and has been lovingly maintained to perfection. She is a head turner wherever she drops anchor. “ENCHANTRESS” was completely re-sprayed with AwlGrip in Dec 2011 including mast and spars. The owner was unhappy with the dark hull color so had ENCHANTRESS re-sprayed again in 2015 back to the original white hull. The beautiful mahogany interior woodwork is varnished throughout with a high gloss finish that compliments the rich interior furnishings and upholstery. A powerful 80HP Ford Lee’s Diesel, good sail wardrobe, excellent ground tacle and equipment, very practical and well equipped galley with new SMEV stove/oven in 2016 and large aft cabin ensure that you can step board and sail the world in style and comfort.
Some of her quality inclusions are superb brass and bronze fittings, a lovely saloon skylight, Rimu and Holly floors, bronze Barlow sheet and halyard winches, Baby Blake toilet, teak decks and taffrail, bowsprit, carved trailboards and bronze ports.
“ENCHANTRESS” is truly a masterpiece and ready to cruise. Anyone who loves classic yachts will not be disappointed!
