'Emily' is a 62ft custom built slopp from Andy Dovell and Palm Beach Marine ready to sail away!

‘Emily’ is superb! She was custom built by Palm Beach Marine (Mark Richards of Palm Beach Motor Yachts) in the old boatshed on Illuka Road in Palm Beach and launched in 1998. The build is all composite and only the best of equipment used to complete the project including carbon fibre mast and boom. The design is modern with fin keel and lead bulb, spade rudder and modern conveniences such as electric winches and furling sails, but all in classic style above the waterline! She is a dream to sail, perfect for a twilight racing with friends, or a family day cruis, with very comfortable overnight accommodation for a couple. Perfect!

This timeless yacht is a head-turner wherever she sails and a very unique opportunity.
