DOVETAIL | S&S Semi-Custom 53 | 53ft
Unique offering for sale by her original owners, DOVETAIL is a world class bluewater cruising yacht. Originally marketed as the Stellar 53, DOVETAIL is a semi-custom Sparkman & Stephens center cockpit design built by Davie Norris Boatbuilders in New Zealand. DOVETAIL was engineered and fitted with the finest available components to be a world-cruising yacht of unparalleled beauty and strength. And gorgeous she is, from every angle with sailing performance aplenty to match.
DOVETAIL summered over in Grenada for a couple of years, and in the fall of 2017, extensive refinishing of her teak decks was undertaken, with all new caulking installed followed by a fresh sanding. We inspected this work while it was being completed under cover in November of 2017, and can report it was a first rate job. DOVETAIL has been well maintained since new and upgraded along the way, with details in the listing. DOVETAIL is truly a first-class build and compares quite favorably, for example, to the likes of Hallberg Rassey and Oyster. Anyone looking for a high quality bluewater design and build in this size range will want to know more about this sailing yacht.
Now back in the States, she is seriously for sale and realistically priced. The boat summered in Charleston, SC, and this fall and winter will be in the water in full commission and available for your proper inspection.
