Boat Description

66 Custom Gorbon 66 97 Bajavento

A truly luxurious performance vessel that can be shorthanded easily. Located on the West Coast of North America, this yacht is prepared to go anywhere in the world. Wired for charging and inverting both 220 volts and 125 volts with outlets for each throughout vessel.

Originally launched in 1998 as a Thoroughbred Racing Yacht, this 66 custom one off raced 3 races a year for two years. In 2000 a high quality custom luxury interior was installed, as well as cruising systems and equipment. Designed and built by Fatih Gorbon in Turkey in one of the oldest shipbuilding areas of the world. Shes cold molded with west systems, is professionally maintained, and in excellent condition.

Bajavento is a Swan look-alike and is in cruise mode at this time. A competitive racer/cruiser most crews have not experienced with such luxury on such a high performance yacht. She has sailed from Turkey across the Atlantic in the ARC, through the Panama Canal, and into the Pacific. She is regularly double handed by the owners.

The expansive decks, lounging pads forward of the mast, and in between the aft and center cockpits, covered center cockpit with teak table, and aft driving station make her an incredible platform for cruising in style and comfort.
