Bruce King Custom 41ft Ketch

Built from laminated Mahogany planking and Epoxy resin in 1976, 41ft ketch Sophie Wackles is now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

From the drawing board of the famous Bruce King…. She is stunning.

Looking for something classic? This one is a real head turner with her beautiful lines and spectacular ketch rig. Her hull looks amazing and fair and has only been recently slipped.

Her frames and bulkheads are also Mahogony. She has been well maintained and presents well. Recently, the boat completed a trip across the Pacific so is fitted out accordingly.

She is equally beautiful upstairs and down with wonderful warm timbers and a feature main cabin skylight.

Powered by a well maintained and presented Beta diesel this is a wonderful package.

Some repairs are required so she is priced to sell!
