Vision Doeve Brokers

S&S kits rigged, oceangoing sailing yacht which is suitable for unlimited sailing. For this, this yacht is equipped with 2 centre boards. The original design was made and built to produce articles for National Geographic of several expeditions under the name "YANKEE". The requirement was that it should be a yacht that could handle oceans, polar seas as well as the rivers and canals, and also be able to dry out. Her centre cockpit with fixed doghouse makes sailing very safe and pleasant. In the stern there are the spacious salon with galley and chart table and a 2-persons berth. In the front there are 2 cabins and the wet cell. Thanks to her sailing characteristics, she can be used very well to make long trips alone or with a family.
