Steel - Dix 43 centre cockpit sloop

s/v Ocean Flight - Dix 43’
1995 – 1998
A VERY SAFE, PRACTICAL, COMFORTABLE, SELF SUFFICIENT AND GOOD LOOKING YACHT - FOR ALL OCEANS !!

Here is a medium sized steel yacht (43 – 45’) of modern styling, in superb condition, with the strength to take you to far corners of the world and the pace to do it in reasonable time.

This design was commissioned by a circum-navigator passing through Cape Town, to be his boat for the next time round. She was required to be a go anywhere yacht of modern concept.

Ocean Flight was specifically designed for long distance water sailing">blue water sailing with the main emphasis being on safety, performance, and comfort at sea and in harbour.

Radius chine hull shape gives good looks, efficiency and enhanced resale value.

Ocean Flight was originally built for the owner of her building yard, the detailing and finish are extraordinary. She is beautifully built of the highest quality materials, with no expense, throughout her build, refit or maintenance schedule, spared.

She is completely self-sufficient from solar panels to a water maker.

Ocean Flight -presently lying in Cape Town, SouthAfrica is equipped and ready for any ocean passage, to any point on the globe, be it north, south, east or west.

Her asking price is ZAR1,995 500.00 or equivalent

Looks good - great boat for the money. We have the aluminum version Dix 43 and are very happy with her sailing abilities. Ian

Re: Steel - Dix 43 centre cockpit sloop

Thanks for the positive words...Really sorry that I have to sell her as she has been my home for awhile and has certainly looked after me over many miles but my "new" husbands trawler has won the day.
