Broker Remarks

Luxury motor yacht with super-dependable, sea-worthy performance

DREAMER is an Andrew Wolstenholme designed semi-displacement motor yacht, originally built in 2002 and undergoing a major refit and refurbishment in late 2021 which represents a comprehensive renovation. Together with works carried out more recently, the enhancements include: -

  • Engine removal, overhaul and recondition
  • Extensive interior redesign including fabrics, carpets, lighting and blinds
  • Under-deck accent lighting
  • Upgrade to an induction hob, combi-microwave cooker and additional under-counter fridge
  • Corian counter tops and integrated sink
  • Electric toilet off master cabin
  • Twin tab controls at both helms
  • Comprehensive integrated suite of electronic systems from Simrad
  • Hi-fidelity Fusion stereo radio & pop-up television
  • Synthetic teak decking throughout
  • Pneumatic stabilised chairs for Skipper & Mate

DREAMER is a splendid example of the Hardy marque’s globally-renowned craftsmanship, quality and sea-keeping ability. The phenomenal upwind performance through lumpy water has to be experienced to be believed, and is hugely reassuring – with none of the uncomfortable slam and bump of a flat-section planing hull.This exceptional example really needs to be seen to fully appreciate how much has been done to give her both a modern feel and a new lease of life in readiness for her next chapter of ownership and safe, comfortable cruising.

Purchased by her current owner in February 2022, who is retiring from long sea voyages, DREAMER is currently lying afloat in Dartmouth and available for viewing by appointment via her broker.
