Overview and Basic Specifications

"CORINTHIAN" -  Nauticat 43 Pilothouse Ketch


Currently lying in Victoria, this classic pilothouse sailing yacht is a rare find and in beautiful condition. The current owner has kept this lovely vessel very well maintained and has now reluctantly decided, due to unforeseen circumstances, that it's time to find her a new home!

"CORINTHIAN" is currently (May 2020) out of the water for her routine annual service and antifouling works. When she hits the water, she will be ready to go sailing!!!

This beautiful yacht will sell quickly now, at her reduced asking price!!!
