A Beautiful and Comfortable Bluewater Cruiser Awaiting Your Dream Sailing Adventure to Anywhere in the World!
This beautiful 50' 1987 semi-custom Mikelson Pilot House Cutter, a rare Venice Galley Down style, allows for the entire pilothouse area to be part of the Living/Salon area. Condition is pristine, under professional yacht management with continuous and numerous major upgrades. Currently located in Israel, this vessel will be delivered anywhere!!!
“Atraxia” was built by Mikelson in San Diego California, and the traditional shortcomings of any similarly built boats have been addressed, such as a complete new bottom professionally installed in 2009 (no blisters), as well as the removal of the teak decks and a complete new fiberglass deck professionally installed in 2009 (no leaks). Fiberglass fuel (300 gal.) and water tanks (300 gal.) were installed at the factory (no black iron tanks and no leaks - ever). The original wooden mast was replaced with aluminum including all new rigging in 2015. In addition, she is equipped with a completely rebuilt main engine in 2017 (Ford-Lehman 135HP), now with currently 270 hours, and a rebuilt Northern Lights Generator (340 hours)
