Throughout "Sandpiper"

Offshore Yachts have built a strong brand based on great design, renowned build, and countless discerning and satisfied owners. William B. Crealock designed a semi displacement hull that is efficient at displacement speeds and still offers a real turn of speed when the need arises to beat weather or return to home port. The ride is soft, comfortable, and, in worsened conditions, safe - inspiring confidence. The very low centre of gravity, substantial displacement, fine entry, deep forefoot, and long keel allow a comfortable motion, excellent directional stability, and ease of handling in close quarters.  

The design demands the best of a builder - with components fully finished - even where the eye cannot see. Mold details such as recessed port lights and overhead deck lights, and exacting details of intricate and thoughtful storage and access to service points that are remarkable. The fibreglass structures are immensely strong and the gelcoats the finest. Note the massive stainless steel engine beds and feel the confidence.

Throughout the yacht find teak joinery to the highest standard of finish and care. The honey teak glows warmly and evenly above and below decks. The soft furnishing are tasteful and immensely practical throughout, including the flybridge area with the full enclosure, and helm and pilot seat that turn to join friends at table. The salon, galley and pilothouse are bathed in natural light from large windows and a plan that separates spaces, but feels open and airy. The visibilty of the surroundings is incredible - the world is an open book - and rare in newer yachts built with dark windows suited to hot climates. 

Sandpiper gleams proudly, ready, to take safe flight and explore remote beaches up and down our coast.
