1999 Pocock 45 – NOW SOLD


Grabau International in cooperation with Ardfern Yacht Centre is delighted to announce our sale of the 1999 Pocock 45 ‘BROWN BEAR’.

From the board of the much admired naval architect Michael Pocock BROWN BEAR is a truly unique blue water cruising yacht. Commissioned by the discerning owners to satisfy a very open brief for the perfect blue water cruiser, capable of sailing to windward properly while making long distance passages and being self sufficient while cruising in remote areas. With more than 50,000 miles under her keel which has seen her cruising in waters from Alaska South to Pitcairn and Chile, surviving two knock downs in the process; it appears BROWN BEAR has more than fulfilled the brief.

Following the much documented cruising success of her predecessor Troubadour it was natural that BROWN BEAR would be an evolution of the design improving functionality and performance where possible. In the same manner as Troubadour the hull is constructed of a wood epoxy sandwich, ideally suited to custom boat building and offering greater resilience than a run of the mill GRP moulding. Just like her sistership BROWN BEAR was built by Steve Etheridge under the watchful eye of Pocock himself in Lymington.

The success of BROWN BEAR and her sistership lead to the development of the Pocock 42 design which had a number of examples (Al Shaheen, Sadko & Arabesque) built in differing hull material and all of which have gone on to prove themselves as world class cruising yachts. All of the designs have been the subject of many press reports thanks to their exploits over the years and indeed BROWN BEAR has featured in a few herself.

We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
