51' Formosa Ketch 1981

$ 89,000

Earendil is a Formosa 51' Ketch currently listed for sale on the market. While this boat is not currently listed with United Yacht Sales, our team is happy to work on your behalf in the research and potential sale of the vessel. Our commitment to our clients is to find the best yacht available that fits the their needs, no matter where its listed. United is a professional yacht brokerage firm that has experience listing and selling all types of Ketch and similar boats.

Formosa Yachts were built to cruise the world.  Her full keel provides a gentle motion in a seaway and the ketch rig combinations match the sails to the sea state.  

This vessel was purchased as a restoration which was started but not completed as the owners health became an issue.  Offering a spacious interior and large windows, this would make a fine liveaboard or storage enough for an offshore adventure. The hull is in very good condition, recent upgrades to the standing rigging and recently varnished mast reflect the possibilities of this offshore capable vessel.
