2020 For sale, Kodiak, designed by Reichel Pugh's legendary design team, captured the sailing world's attention long ago as Exile. She has also been Blue Yankee and, not to be confused with her sistership locally sailed, she was also known as Aurora. Spirited, superbly fast, her race record spoke for itself with those in the know. And speaking of speaking for itself, with many first place finishes and other speed records set by this venerable and handsome sailing yacht, and speeds of 16-18 knots, it is inevitable that a knowledgeable sailor can recreate the story of her past. Interestingly, what is not so apparent and is rarely ever seen in a yacht of this genre, is her excellent condition. With the many systemic updates and a sail inventory that will impress, this superb machine will give you years of sailing pleasure. She has had updates galore and was built to be durable and capable of crossing rough water. Again, with her overall systems and rig and sails, mechanicals, plumbing and electrical in excellent shape, this yacht is bargain priced. The yacht will only be available after the 2020 Bermuda Race, July 2020, 395,000 USD
