We would like to introduce to you, Panta Rhei, a Van De Stadt Samoa 48. She is a thoroughbred blue water cruising yacht, built to the highest standards of Dutch craftsmanship. She is a tremendously safe off-shore passage-maker with a very well protected cockpit (hard dodger and “wrap around” cockpit coaming) and rugged non-skid plates on all walking surfaces. Panta Rhei can easily be handled by a small crew (or even single handedly) despite her substantial sail area. She has been designed, built and fitted out for long distance cruising, with over-specified equipment, simple systems for easy maintenance, large autonomy, luxurious accommodation and exceptional comfort at sea.
Panta Rhei is an aluminum Van De Stadt Samoa 48 commissioned in 1997/98. She was designed by Van de Stadt & Partners and built by Van Toledo Netherlands & Van Mameren interiors. In 1939 Van de Stadt designed the Valk, a plywood (called “hetchout” by the supplier at the time) daysailor still popular today in the Netherlands. Van de Stadt quickly became a highly regarded pioneer of sailing yacht construction, especially when it came to the materials used. Van de Stadt also earned repute when he designed the 12 meter racer Zeevalk. Eventually Van de Stadt designs were available for homebuilt sailboats, the first plans sold in 1952, but designers all over the world did not give repute to Van de Stadt’s ideas until years later. Panta Rhei is an all aluminum hull that is roundbilged and sports a fin keel and a balanced spade rudder, based on the design that Van de Stadt applied years ago. Long story short, you are looking at an excellent blood line here and the investment will be worth it in so many ways.
Panta Rhei is one heck of a sailing vessel that took her last owners to every corner of the North Atlantic Ocean safely. They sailed with their two young children! This could be your chance to own an awesome, proven bluewater cruising boat. Current asking price, $199,000.
