Scott Free Lay Out
Sailing downwind under solent rig

This yacht has been recently returned to the market after having her new fuel tanks custom made, fabricated and installed. 
She has been in a Vessel care program during the absence of her owners during the COVID period and is in a great condition and ready for her new owners. Her current owners cruised on her for 12 years. 

She has proven herself as a comfortable and reliable blue water cruising vessel, and has completed a circumnavigation and many ocean crossings. 
Designed by Dick Zaal, and built by Conyplex, she is a luxurious spacious live aboard boat, with proven performance and no compromise on sail ability. 
With her protective centre cockpit layout, she offers a roomy aft island queen sized berth, with a convenient head and shower area in the aft. 
Forward of the saloon, there is another head and double V berth. The entire layout is light and practical, with ample ventilation. Whether you are looking at long term live aboard, adventurous ocean crossings, coastal cruising, or periodic sailing and marina lifestyles, Scott Free is the boat for you. 
Comfortable, spacious, safe, a great sailing boat, and above all, realistically and competitively priced. 

Please view her small video on my Instagram Page: Dream. For. Sail

Contact me today for a viewing, I look forward to showing you our latest exclusive listing, her at Rebak Marina, Langkawi,

OWNERS COMMENTS: " "Scott-Free" has looked after us well over the last twelve years and 40,000+ nautical miles of sailing. In all our travels we have not seen a boat of similar length that we would have preferred. She is a well-loved boat that has been maintained to a high standard and we will be very sad to see her go. But we have had our fun, and now its time for her to set off on her travels once again with new and enthusiastic owners. There's a whole world of sailing out there to be enjoyed, and "Scott-Free" is ready and waiting to get her sails flying once more. "
