FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
KORALIA 3 is a Custom-built Jeanneau ketch designed by Guy Ribadeau-Dumas and derived from the production model Trinidad. Guy Ribadeau-Dumas also designed Whitbread racers like the maxi Nicorette, class winner Espirit d’Coeur, and Charles Jourdan.
Originally constructed as hull no.67 or 72 Jeanneau Trinidad’s, KORALIA 3 was delivered to her first owner in Spring 1989 having been extensively modified by Jeanneau to serve as an ocean racing yacht. Modifications included a lengthened hull, deeper 3m keel, longer 2.6m rudder, 1.5m taller main mast, 0.75m taller mizzen mast and racing-orientated interior forward of mast. Taking full advantage of the IOR rule of the time, KORALIA 3 was one of the quickest boats on the water and to this day, she will sail higher and faster upwind than many equally sized modern yachts.
Upon purchase by her current owner in 1999, her forward interior layout was updated to the same luxurious level as her main accommodation. This was supplied by the Jeanneau factory who shipped a complete matching forward section to be installed. Following a comprehensive refit and upgrade, KORALAI 3 was finally relaunched in 2001 to begin her new life as a luxury charter and sail training vessel.
KORALIA 3 is a blue water cruising yacht that has proven her pedigree. She has been sailed across the Atlantic twice back and forth to the USA. She has 2 trips to the UK from Greece, one to the Scottish Island around the Clyde and a second trip to the South coast. She has sailed the Mediterranean from Malta to Croatia.
The yacht is Ketched rigged, she has 8 sleeping berths. When sailed she is capable of logging 200+ miles noon to noon. Her onboard fluid capacities make her a desirable long-distance cruising Yacht, while her sailing pedigree moves her into the performance category of yacht sales. Her extensive deck gear and sail inventory maker her ready to sail away.
