For Sale. Van de Stadt Madeira 44

Want an adventure cruiser to take down to the Antarctic, Tierra del Fuego or traverse the Northwest Passage?

If so this ‘go anywhere’ monohull is the boat for you, and was bought and refitted by its current owner to do just that type of adventure cruising.

Launched in 2003 she is designed by van de Stadt & Partners B.V., Wormerveer, Netherlands, and built by Jachtbouw Folmer B.V., Netherlands, and finished by Visser Jachtbetimmering B.V.

Hull #32 is a semi-custom aluminium performance cruising boat for shorthanded, minimal maintenance sailing, allowing us to spend our time sailing and enjoying our destinations, not polishing or repairing equipment. Features such as unpainted topsides, reefing from the cockpit, redundant autopilots, self-steering and minimal powered or complicated equipment are plentiful.

Wood exposed to the elements exists only in the teak on the seats in the cockpit. It is not varnished, only cleaned periodically. There is no diesel generator, no powered winches, no mast or in-boom furling and no automatic equipment that would require maintenance and more complication.

We only have equipment that we considered essential for trouble-free, shorthanded sailing – redundant autopilots, self-steering, powered windlass, and storage with room to store two full size touring bicycles, a scuba compressor and two complete sets of scuba equipment and folding kayaks below decks.

Not to forget food and stores for months of cruising.

The yacht was built in the Netherlands where aluminium boat building is a well-established industry and an accomplished art.
