VOLANTIS (Greek for Flying Fish) is a beautiful dark blue ketch that
turns heads everywhere she goes. She is a Kaufman/ Ladd design with
striking lines. Her teak decks are in great shape having been replaced
in 2002 and recaulked in 2013. Her engine has had a complete
professional rebuild and has only 100 hours since rebuild. The builder
Dickerson in Maryland has been written up in Ferenc Mate's "The
World's Best Sailboats" She is intercoastal capable and has been
sailed extensively by her owner who has had her since 1984. Her
interior is "Herreshoff style" with white bulkheads with
natural wood trim. She has three private staterooms, a big galley and
a very nautical saloon.
When new back in 1983 her build cost was over one million dollars!
She is a very nice capable vessel.
VOLANTIS is a strong capable ketch that has been well maintained and
is a delight to see.
