Dick Boon’s Aisling Is On Sale

When we talk of excellence in yachts, Netherlands is the place that comes to our mind. The Netherlands has always, and for very long, been a place where builders of yachts have striven fro excellence. Some of the most reputed brands and craftsmen which include names like Feadship, Heesen and Royal Huisman, have called Holland their home. This same record of excellence also holds tru for Vripack that has been a professional yacht designer, engineer, naval architect and broker since the year 1961; and the founder of Vripack Dick Boon who is a naval architect. Dick Boon is retired now, but the legacy of the naval architect is present in many yachts, which include Doggersbanks, especially the Doggersbanks Aisling which measures 84 foot.

Doggersbanks Aisling was one of the last projects undertaken Dick Boon. Now, the 84 foot Doggersbank Aisling has been put for sale. The Aisling is on sale in the brokerage market. It has been put up with a proce reduction of $ 800,000. The proce reduction has been made through broker Bruce Leffers at Northrop and Johnson. The current asking price for the 2000 build Doggersbank Aisling is now $ 3.15 million. This asking price was recently refitted in the year 2012. This was soon after the Aisling was given Awlgrip paint, new generators as well as a full servicing for the entire engine room.

The Italian owners are interested in getting a catamaran, hence have put the Aisling on sale, instead of using it. According to Leffers, “The owners are Italian,” Leffers says. “They own two very large sailboats, over 140 feet, one a real classic and one real modern. They have spent all the money that this boat needs, but they’re not using it and they want to get a 100-foot catamaran instead. That’s why Aisling is for sale.” The broker also said the refit work done in the year 2012 also included interior works such as new overhead, soft goods and carpeting. Traditional teak has been maintained in the required wood work.
