Formosa 51 — Built in 1979. Popular go-anywhere classic owner's version cruising yacht; the choice for live-a-boards and extended cruisers.

This well-maintained 'Formosa 51' ketch has ample accommodations for six to 10 people but can be sailed comfortably by a crew of two. Her gleaming white hull is complemented by traditional teak decking. 

Below decks the teak woodwork and panelling, with leather button upholstery,and Tiffany lamp, provide up-classic comfort. She provides fun sailing in classic surroundings. 

Bought with the intention of sailing around the world, our circumstances have changed and the offer of our dream job means we will be land based for the foreseeable future. We first considered keeping her, but she needs an owner with the time to look after her properly and sail her.

She comfortably sleeps 6/8 in 3 cabins.
All the way aft is the owner’s stateroom with its own private head. Next forward is the large saloon with seating for eight around the marble table. A steering station is in the saloon.
Going forward down three steps to a central passage way one finds the galley to starboard and the port cabin to port. The port cabin comprises one double bunk and one single bunk, ample hanging storage and 3 drawers.
Next forward is the starboard cabin. Again comprising one double bunk and one single, hanging locker and drawers. Lots of storage under the bunk.
Through the starboard cabin is the forepeak. This houses the generator and sails, tools etc. Between the starboard cabin and the port cabin is the forward head. Both heads have showers. 
Six people can easily and comfortably sleep on board, two on the double bed in the owner’s stateroom
aft, two in the two bunks in the port cabin, and two in the two bunks in the starboard cabin. At a push 3 can sleep in the guest cabins. Two more could bed down if the saloon table were converted to a double bed.
