51' Skye 51

Outside United States

WILL BECOME AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING FROM 1st MARCH. The Skye 51 was commissioned by the John G. Alden Company, designed by the naval architects Kaufman & Ladd of Annapolis and built by Mao Ta Shipyard in Taiwan. Eighteen Skye 51s were built under the direct supervision of Alden and are highly sought after by world cruisers.
The design was for a blue water performance cruising yacht easily handled by a couple and intended for world voyaging. As such, The Skye 51 has been designed, engineered, and built to quality standards comparable with the finest yachts in the world. Few performance cruising designs built today have the exceptional strength, and classic styling that the Skye 51 offers.
Yemaya has a spacious sleek open deck, large safe cockpit and wide side decks that make for comfortable and safe cruising.
The interior arrangement provides 2 separate en-suite cabins one aft cabin with a double berth, private shower and head, and one forward cabin with a single bunk over a double berth, also with full head.
The spacious saloon provides 2 secure pilot berths, a U shaped settee and large dining table.
Just aft of the Saloon are the updated galley and navigation station.
Aft of the captains cabin lies a large walk in engine room with the renowned 82 Hp Perkins 4.236 Marine Diesel.
The V-berth can serve as a crew cabin or storage for tools and sails.
Her cutter, ketch-rig allow a variety of sail combinations to suit the conditions. Current owner sails her easily solo or as a couple.
Yemaya is a world voyaging yacht that has completed two circumnavigations. She underwent a major retrofit starting in 2015 to include: electrical, plumbing, refrigeration, stove, navigation, 2 autopilots, led lights, engine rebuild, water maker, roller furling, stainless work, canvas, solar, and removal of the teak deck.
