As mentioned in the 1965 Yachting Magazine article, this gorgeous Feadship was originally launched as EXACT in 1964 and specially designed to be the committee yacht for the 1964 America's Cup race. She was later named ANOATOK where she was lovingly owned by the same family for 22 years. She is well know having cruised extensively along the Eastern Seaboard, Gulf of Mexico and throughout the Caribbean.
She is now available for sale for the new owner to continue the refit & restore her to the grace and elegance she deserves. Currently all of the carpeting has been removed and some cabinetry and floorboards in the lower cabins are up to access the inside hull plating for inspection.
It has been estimated that at least 1/3 of the bottom needs re-plating. The bow area in particular needs a major amount of frames and plate work. The hull will need to be partially restored on location so she can float and be transported to a facility for refit
The deck is also in need or replacement and water has leaked within forward in the dinning room and crew areas.
This is a mechanically sound vessel having regular maintenance but she requires some attention to the hull plating and pipe work as would be expected in a vessel of this vintage.
She is currently out of the water at Bradford Marine Bahamas and easily inspected.
In order to properly gauge the condition of the yacht I looked to the advise & guidance from Lody Reimersma of Lotronics, Netherlands whose team focuses on classic Feadship's of the Heritage Fleet having completed impressive refit projects such as OLYMPIA.
Lody inspected the yacht for a potential buyer and has over 400+ additional pictures & video that can be shared with a potential Buyer. His opinion is that total cost for the refit would be approximately 3.5-4m EURO. The hull alone will require an estimated 7,500 man hours and 6-8 months to rebuild costing roughly 500,000 EURO.
Transport to the Netherlands would be roughly 120,000 EURO and we have been in contact with a transport company specializing in yacht transport for a vessel in this condition.
There is already a complete team in place at Lotronics who can finish the refit, and work can also be coordinated with Feadship Makkum and Aalsmeer.
I welcome a conversation with any serious buyer or broker who could be interested in this project. We have additional pictures of the interior, exterior, machine spaces and original drawings that are available upon request.
Thank you for your time.
On May 16th, 2015 a personal inspection was made onboard. Over 200 pictures were taken documenting her current condition both on the interior, exterior, hull, flybridge, engine room and running gear.
These pictures are available upon request and I am happy to discuss the overall condition and requirements of the rebuild.
This classic canoe stern Feadship offers excellent potential. Plate work on the hull is required prior to relocating her.
