Custom Steel Cutter Rigged Expedition Cruiser

Welcome aboard "Resolution," a 1990 Koopmans 47 steel custom cutter rigged sailboat designed by Dutch Naval Architect, Dick Koopmans, Sr.   This offshore sailboat is built for extreme weather. She has a conservative modern underbody providing easy handling and a 160-degree stability range. The extremely fair rolled steel hull was built at the Van Wavaren Boatyard, Rotterdam. She features a center cockpit and deep 14,300 pound keel. Inside, "Resolution" features a simply finished and functional custom interior – very comfortable and ideal for offshore cruising.  

Originally imported & documented in Maine, USA, Resolution has sailed the world.  In 2012, the current owner purchased her in New Zealand.  Since then, he has sailed her around the Pacific visiting Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Palau, Japan, the Aleutian Islands, mainland Alaska, British Columbia and Washington state.

This year in Anacortes, Resolution had a complete refit of her standing and running rigging.  She also had a 5,000-hour engine service and her teak deck house was rebuilt with a fiberglass, no-skid surface. Resolution’s inventory is vast with extensive spares and safety equipment, ready to cruise worldwide in safety and comfort.

This yacht is a very strong candidate for a NW Passage Voyage.
