The first owner of SAHARET OF TYRE, this Classic 114 FT Camper & Nicholsons Ketch, was an American who built her to fulfil two passions – sailing and buying antiques from all over the Mediterranean. In 1986 she was totally stripped down to bare frames and rebuilt from the keel up. Wiring, plumbing, accommodation, tanks, etc., were all new. In 1998 a further major refit was carried out, renewing the ship’s decks down to the beams – 1-inch marine ply with 1,25-inch solid teak on top. A new deck saloon with a higher bulwark and wheel box, designed more in keeping with the vessel’s period, were fitted. Her rigging configuration was brought back to original. Additional framing and stringers were added to beef up the boat, adding more strength to the hull. Windlass, chains, winches and steering gear together with various navigation aids, replaced the old. Stainless steel water tanks were renewed, and a black water tank added. In 2013/2014 Saharet underwent another major refit and continued to be updated and maintained, both, technically and aesthetically, by her meticulous owner and same captain for over 30 years to the highest standard possible. Her present owner after several years preparation with the help of the previous Captain is currently realizing his dream to cross the Atlantic and enjoy sailing in the Caribbean in 2024. Viewing of this very sound, strong and fast yacht in very good condition is highly recommended!
