"Leave it to the Brits. You’re not apt to see a lot of Oysters here in the States, but when you come across one it’s worth a close look. They are proud and seaworthy and, yes, even expensive; they are sumptuous, comfortable and fit for a king; they are constructed of modern materials, by way of a genuinely conservative engineering mind-set." ~ Cruising World

Boundless is a luxurious well outfitted global cruiser built by one of the sailing industries premier yards. Walking through the yacht you will notice the expansive teak decks, robust standing rigging controlled by a battery of electric and manual winches, amazing view from the pilot salon, rich interior with envious fit and finish, quality equipment that one would expect on a luxury yacht.... etc. Cruising now with her current owners, this yacht is in good overall shape, but will need a refit in the near future. Priced with this in mind, this yacht is seriously for sale and should survey well. Own a luxury yacht with proven blue-water capabilities at a very competitive price.

The hull is hand laminated and all hull/deck moldings are produced using Lloyds' approved gelcoat and laminating resign.


The deck structure is molded in GRP with a balsa core for strength and insulation. In load bearing areas the core is replaced with plywood for additional strength, and all load bearing fittings have aluminum backing plates.
