The legendary Sundeer 64, Artemis, is on the market for the first time since 2009. The Sundeers, built at TPI in Rhode Island and designed and engineered by Steve and Linda Dashew, changed the thinking of so many long-distance sailors. They are overbuilt to an extreme, yet famous for fast and comfortable passages. The interiors are designed for real-world cruising, with functional and safe living areas, watertight compartments, and accessible machinery, combined with a simple and sophisticated finish. This all-latitude voyager is ready for a new owner to take over and further the adventure!
From the description by Steve and Linda Dashew: The Sundeer 64 is designed as a no-compromise, long-range cruising vessel for shorthanded sailing. Moderate of beam, with an extremely long waterline, state of the art systems and construction, fore and aft watertight bulkheads, with fuel and water transferable from side to side for increased sailing stiffness, and a hull which is almost fully balanced as it heels through normal sailing range together create what is the finest production cruising boat ever to set sail.
Because the hull of the Sundeer 64 is so easily driven, a modest sail plan makes for very quick passages. The ketch rig, for instance, has a mainmast which is just 64 feet off the water. Yet this small sail plan will easily power you to 240 to 260 mile days in tradewind conditions.
Can a couple handle a Sundeer 64? This is a question asked by most of our clients. The first issue is handling the boat offshore, and here rig and hull efficiency comes into play. The fact that the Sundeer 64 needs so little sail area, relative to its size and stability, to make quick passages, means you are in effect already shortened down the first notch ahead of the weather. When other boats are getting ready to reef, we're just hitting our stride. And in conditions where you want to shorten down ahead of weather, so that the boat is really under-powered, you can still make good progress.
A bluewater passagemaker in a class by itself. Full details, photos, and specifications to come.
