When touring modern, lightly build production sailboats, does the term “wimpy” come to mind? If so, a date with Andromeda might satisfy one’s desire for a strong, ship-like sailing yacht with all latitude capabilities.
Built in aluminum by the legendary Dubbel & Jesse shipyard on the North Sea German island of Noderney, Andromeda was fitted out over the course of eight years by her original owner; one of the shipyard’s employees. With a Max Oertz derived hull and rig design, Andromeda is deceptively fast, safe and elegant. She’s cruised from high latitude to low with superb maintenance. Deck space, interior layout, systems configuration and sailing hardware all scream out “take me and expose me to the worst storm conditions.” When finally through the maelstrom, Andromeda’s beauty and strength will radiate.
