The History of Grace of Lefkas by Owners Phil & Sara

Grace of Lefkas was commissioned in 2004. For seven years, we were based out of the Greek Ionian island of Lefkas with a small charter company. We had some amazing holidays on her, by ourselves and with friends. We explored the Northern Ionian, rounded the first cape of the Peloponnese.  Our favourite places were Kastos, Fiskardo, and Kioni which we visited many times. After seven years it was time to find new cruising grounds and we took a sabbatical to spend the summer living aboard.  During that time we took a very slow circuit around the Aegean. Finally delivering her to her new home in Marmaris to be managed by Sail in Turkey in 2011.

We discovered many new favourite places in Turkey, exploring the coast from Didim to Finike. Having spent six happy years holidaying here now it is time to pursue the dream we decided on in 2011. Now we are buying a new boat to take us around the World. It is with a strange mixture of sadness and excitement we have put Grace up for sale. We hope she brings her new owner the same pleasure she has brought us.

Sail In Turkey, operate to high standards of maintenance. Grace was fully MCA-coded (Category 2) while on charter in Turkey, with regular professional surveys.


Equipment on Grace

Grace is well equipped, with extensive safety equipment, including jackstays, an engine room fire extinguisher, a hand-held VHF, a McMurdo EPIRB, a full and a full set of life jackets. We enjoyed a lot of time at anchor, and Grace has a 25KG Rocna anchor, plus a 20KG Delta as a backup, and a Fortress anchor with a lead-weighted line. Other equipment has been regularly refreshed, including new upholstery and a new suite of sails (in low-stretch Vektron) in 2010; a Victron Energy 750W inverter and a Stirling smart alternator->battery charger (maximises battery charging when under engine) in 2011; a 2.7m RIB in 2014; an 80W solar panel, and new Bosch engine and house batteries in 2016; and a new leather wheel cover in 2017.

Our favourite features include the very spacious forward cabin, the comfy saloon, and the large heads / shower room. The spray hood and the in-mast furling make her is comfortable and safe while beating into a Mediterranean chop.

She is now for sale through Sunbird Brokerage in Marmaris
