    Lightweight semi-custom carbon epoxy vacuum-infused performance cruiser from Sly Yachts in 2005. Launched 2006 and with just two owners since new. ROCKET 1 is a very special example of her type and is offered for sale in sparkling condition.


    Under just her second ownership, ROCKET 1 has been extensively refitted, upgraded and optimised by her current owner to create a high-quality, fast cruiser racer. Unique amongst her sisterships, ROCKET 1 boasts many significant upgrades including:-

    Sly 47 is a dynamic Fast Cruiser, easy to manoeuvre either as sailboat or motorboat, comfortable and highly liveable as a cruiser given her excellent interior spacing and extensive areas free from encumbrance on the deck.

    She sails at fast, easy cruise speeds in the medium-long range and offers interesting and satisfying results in IRC and Open regattas.

    Sly 47 is a yacht for cruising, but so fast to be loved by people who never forget pure sailing, who don’t tolerate long navigation with engine power, who can’t stand sailing a boat that can’t give real sensations. It’s a game of balance between a racer and a yacht with a reduced crew, between quickness and passion for the trip.
