1984 Blue Water 41 now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.
We had the good fortune to recently deliver this fine yacht from Eden to Sydney. We were 2 handed in quite rough conditions. I was amazed at how she handled herself. Reliable and with outstanding performance.
Aphrodite 2 is a serious ocean-going Bermuda Cutter designed by Terry Wells. The design was also called a Wells 41. The style is reminiscent of the Herreshoff designs of the 30s and 40s.
She was professionally built in New Zealand by GRP Yachts Limited in Whangerei in 1984 and there is a very keen and active Facebook Group of current owners and fans of the 13 boats built to date: https://www.facebook.com/bluewater41.
Purchased by her previous owner in Australia in 2002, she cruised the East Australian coast including far north Queensland and down for a circumnavigation of Tasmania. Her current owner had similar aspirations but his plans have unfortunately changed and she is back on the market following replacement of her standing rigging in July and fresh antifouling and a new prop shaft bearing in September 2022.
Built, fitted out and equipped for shorthanded blue water cruising; her inventory is extensive.
What we really like about this boat is the conservatory. Her cockpit is fully enclosed with amazing 360 degree vision. In 30 knots of wind you are absolutely dry and warm.
Outstanding presentation for her age. Look into the immaculate engine room and that tells you the whole story of how she has been maintained.
Contact us for additional photographs, a detailed inventory and a 2022 survey report which will be acceptable to your insurance company thereby saving the cost of another inspection and slipping. Aphrodite 2 is ready for her new owners to take them on their dream adventure.
