In general the build quality is pretty good. But have this yacht checked by a qualified yacht expert. The rudder
is a typical suspected component by design and could be soaked with water
. We had the rudder
replaced end 2013 and was a known issue when we bought the yacht back in april 2013.
Read my blog on blogboek Yazz | Digitaal logboek van de reizen van de Yazz.
Unfortunately in Dutch, but if you use Google
Translate and cut an paste the text you can read the story pretty well. Lot of video stuff there too.
If you want to travel the ocean, have your rigging
checked too. If it's as old as the yacht, consider to replace it. By design the keel
construction is known as extremely solid.
So with the 3 most important components, keel
, rudder and rigging
checked as OK, you're ready to travel the world with this yacht :-)..oh one more thing but this is in general; check for fuel/diesel contamination..that will stop you engine from working for sure..(see my blog). I use a little Grotamar71 to keep it clean and without any malfunction
