Billy Budd is a high-performance sailing yacht built by pedigree shipyard Royal Huisman, and an exciting addition to IYC’s sales fleet. The 112’4” (34.25m) aluminum yacht boasts exterior design by Judel Vroljk & Co and is well set up for adventure sailing. Already a notable yacht on the international sailing scene, she has completed multiple superyacht regattas and circumnavigated the world in comfort.
Hand-crafted in 1994, the super sloop is well-equipped for exploration in any latitude, even in remote regions. Fully refitted in La Ciodad in 2010 and in Genoa in 2017, when she received new teak decking throughout and a complete overhaul of engine, generators and electric and hydraulic equipment, she is RINA-certified and presents in mint condition.
Billy Budd is a performance oriented yacht built for exhilarating sailing around the world. Beautifully crafted using artisanal techniques, she has been excellently maintained and enjoyed by her owners. Now, this world-cruising aluminum boat, which has only been in private use since her launch, is ready to cast off for her next chapter.
Billy Budd benefits from an elegant interior penned by renowned Dutch studio Pieter Beeldsnijder Design. This incorporates a large deck salon that delivers life-affirming panoramic ocean views, even from below deck. Six guests are accommodated in three staterooms, including an inviting full-beam master suite and two double cabins. A further five crew are catered for in accommodation forward.
Exploration lives at the heart of Billy Budd. She was conceived for indulging in low impact bluewater cruising and harnessing the power of the wind. When dead calm prevails, a Scania 430hp turbo-charged diesel engine provides a 3500 nautical mile range and a top speed of 12 knots. When at anchor, excitement continues below the water thanks to a dive compressor with equipment for seven divers. She is also equipped with two tenders for exploration away from the mothership or to comfortably venture ashore.
A versatile layout and large interior volume showcase the best of life at sea aboard a monohull sailing yacht that invites spirited enjoyment. Billy Budd presents an exciting sales opportunity for a thrill-seeking owner on the hunt for their next big sailing adventure.
