Fast, safe, comfortable and good looking. The Cavalier 39' is an any ocean capable sailing yacht. Built by Export Yachts in New Zealand to a Bob Salthouse design. For those not familiar with Salthouse, he was one of New Zealand's most prolific yacht designers and had more than 60 years in yacht design and is credited with more than 750 designs.
The Cavalier 39 is considered to be one of the most sea kindly and comfortable sloops in her size and class. The builder, Export Yachts was a leader in fiberglass and composite yacht construction and pioneered the use of vacuum bagging - in the 1980's. The Build Quality is that of a custom yacht while the hull and deck were built in female moulds. There are water tight bulkheads forward and aft.
She is a "sailors boat" tiller steered and a Monitor Wind Vane. Belowdecks are finished with old growth teak and Kauri, neither of which are in surplus today. This one-owner yacht shows the pride of ownership by the couple who ordered the boat from the builder and have owned her since new. If you are looking for an ocean boat for around the world or a coastal cruiser to explore NW waters, you simply must see Silver Cloud for yourself. Exterior Photos coming soon!
