Ganley Yachts Ltd offer stock steel and timber designs from the drawing board of the late Denis Ganley. Denis Ganley was a leading yacht designer in New Zealand who specialized in steel yacht design aimed at both the amateur and professional builder.
The reason for designing mostly in steel is that many of these designs were intended for offshore and serious coastal cruising and so they provide the ultimate in strength and safety. There are over 1,000 of these designs either sailing or under construction around the world.
Denis Ganley received many accolades during his 35 year career, including winning the 1986 Steel Award for best Consumer product with the Pacemaker 40 design (a first for these awards). Many of his designs have made remarkable passages offshore and have successfully competed in various regattas and other events.
Denis’ legacy lives on with his designs, and his daughter Denise can now be contacted with any enquiries.
“Moon Tide” was built in New Zeeland where a 30 knots wind is just another average day. If a NZ built boat is not strong, it will not last! This boat is a great example. Modified keel and full skeg rudder will give you great course tracking and fair maneuvering when in close quarters.
She is a beautiful fast sailing boat with a flat flush deck and spacious open interior. The boat is registered in Thailand under the current owner’s name.
“Moon Tide” is actively cruising in Thailand and all systems are operable.
Absolutely dry bilges.
New Sunbrella sun cover.
Single electric winch in the cockpit and 2000w anchor winch.
Inflatable 3.7 meters (12′) dinghy with a 20 HP 4 stroke “Yamaha” outboard.
Everything on this boat is simple and reliable.
She was splashed 6 months ago with new antifoul paint and new anodes.
Reason for selling the boat is divorce.
