Grabau International is delighted to announce its successful sale of the 2004 Van Dam Nordia 66 Cruiser ‘SEAHORN’.
SEAHORN is a most remarkable yacht. The result of a collaboration between one of Holland’s finest yards, and her original most experienced owner, she was conceived and built regardless of cost for serious cruising. She is easy to handle, so crew are not required, yet there is ample space on deck and below. The attention to detail is astonishing.
Originally launched in the spring of 2004, she was sold into her present ownership in 2006 after her original owner decided to go larger. During her present ownership she has been based exclusively in the Mediterranean, spending her time in the Balearics, Tyrrhenian, Ionian, Adriatic and Aegean seas. Benefitting from extensive refits in Mallorca and Corfu.
