Peak is for sale 

Following a comprehensive refit, including a new teak deck, our plans have evolved. We are not getting any younger, and it is time to pass PEAK on to a new, loving owner. Reflecting on our 20 years of ownership, we realize selling her is a difficult decision. Although we have received attractive offers over the years, we were never ready to let her go. Now, we are.

We aim to sell PEAK as an ongoing business opportunity. She comes fully equipped and ready for new ownership. Aside from being Hull #001, PEAK features the last produced Nautor aluminum toe-rail, a completely faired and osmose-free hull, and a new teak deck. Bringing a 'bargain-priced' 65 up to her level would cost, in our opinion, at least double the price difference.

In 2021, my wife and I sailed PEAK effortlessly from her home base in Scarlino, Tuscany, to the Canary Islands. In early 2022, we set sail for the Caribbean, ending up in Trinidad for the teak deck renewal and an extensive refit under our direct, painstaking supervision. PEAK is a joy to sail, always assuring us of her strength and reliability.

Over the past 20 years, we have cruised, chartered, and raced her. Whether cruising with family and friends or just the two of us, we always received the same question: 'Where is your crew?' This yacht is easy to handle, despite its challenges. She has no bow thruster; as Nautor's founder Pekka Koskenkyla said, 'They were designed and built without.' Docking her always resulted in smiles and compliments, which made us proud.

Chartering was also enjoyable, allowing us to share the joy and love of PEAK. We have many testimonials to prove it. Racing her to the crew's limits was thrilling, earning us podium finishes at several Swan events and regattas. Racing strengthened her for cruising and chartering.

We have continuously refitted PEAK with this in mind. Rudder, masts, rigging, winches, and tracks—everything has been strengthened and tested. We wanted nothing less. As the original Hull #1, we have been proud custodians of this important heritage and beautiful, fun ship for two decades.

PEAK still has the original Perkins engine, chosen for its reliability. Other technical systems have been replaced with modern, easy-to-repair and maintain techniques, all with the same intention. In May 2023, my wife and I set sail from Trinidad back to Scarlino. It was the dream sailing trip of our lives. We encountered many challenges, but PEAK never let us down. She is a true seaworthy sailing yacht. Doublehanded, the ketch configuration allows for optimal sail setups. The non-full-batten main and mizzen sails enabled us to adjust to sea state and winds in comfort and safety. The Parasailor and Gennaker made downwind sailing a sheer joy. It was a sailor's dream all the way.

PEAK is ready to go.

In the meantime she is now based in Valencia , where she is available for viewings upon appointment.
