European Yacht of the Year 2017

Querencia as a well equipped and ORC optimized X4.3 that has been lovingly cared for by her owners since delivery in August 2018. Since delivery she has been upgraded with many notable cruising and racing features that allow this X4.3 to be cruised by a couple, raced double handed, or fully crewed including distance ocean racing. Based in Annapolis, Querencia has participated in 24-hour double handed distance races (winning her ORC class 1 in 2020) and notably placed in the top half of her class in the 2021 Annapolis to Newport Race. While not on the race course the owners cruised with family and friends through-out the Chesapeake and New England.

The interior is of the preferred Standard Layout, with three cabins and a large mid-ships head. An aft facing nav station, large saloon and galley, and ample storage through-out make this a winner in every category.

Well positioned for the next owner to continue with offshore racing and fast cruising this is a rare find in todays market of limited availability in late model, well equipped quality yachts. Querencia is in better than ex-factory condition, being heavily upgraded above spec. This is your chance to save on the time and investment of a new build and be sailing this year.

Querencia is scheduled to take part in the bi-annual Newport to Bermuda Race in June. After the race Querencia can be delivered by the seller to the port of the buyers choosing on the East Coast, ready to go on her next adventure.
