As new Van De Stadt professionally built in 2006/2007 before being refitted in 2010 at the cost of over $100,000, prior to undertaking extended cruise around Australia.
The Van De Stadt Seal is the popular center-cockpit version of this well known Dutch designer.
Remarkably fast, yet stable and immensely strong, this boat is capable of taking you safely anywhere in the world.
Easily handled by one, 'Pilgrim' is easy to sail, as well as being safe for the family with her well-protected center-cockpit, out-of-harm traveler, flush deck and high topsides.
Fully equipped with modern equipment and the latest electronics 'Pilgrim' combines the strength and sea-keeping qualities of a more traditional design with all the comfort of a modern yacht.
Equipment-wise nothing has been left out of her fully comprehensive cruising package, including large size plotter/radar with multifunction display, AIS Class B (Active), Life-Tag Man Overboard System, Autopilot, VHF and HF radio.
Safety being paramount to her owner she is fitted with LPG gas detector, multiple auto and manual bilge pumps and a deck-mounted life raft which can be included in the deal. Lifelines have been heightened to provide extra security on deck.
'Pilgrim' is also a beautiful little home, with a large aft cabin easily to access from below deck, a functional galley with plenty of bench-space, dedicated storage compartments, 3 X burner stove/oven and extra large Isotherm fridge.
There is hot and cold pressurized water in both galley and head/shower area. Her water and fuel capacity is incredibly large for an 11m boat, with 240L in both, giving you plenty of flexibility and range of travel.
Forward, the V berth is accessed from the side, with an added in-fill if you require extra space, although it will sleep 2 adults comfortably as is. The saloon, open-plan main cabin and new upholstery is inviting, warm and comfortable when dinning with friends and family.
The head and shower area is well appointed and large enough to move around with ease.
The engine is a reliable Yanmar 39HP which was fitted in 2010, (500 hours since). All service records are available. It is accessed from all sides by removing large and well insulated panels. The cockpit floor is also fitted with a hermetic but removable plate in the event of having to over-haul the engine.
