ENDURANCE is an elegant world cruiser with three cabins including private owner’s quarters aft with an expansive main saloon. Fully powered sail handling systems allow her to be sailed by a couple. Interior fit and finish reflects the finest qualities of English boatbuilding. The Bob Perry design promises solid performance on all points of sail without compromising on comfort.
Her current owner invested 1M in a refit (2012) which will be to the significant benefit of her next owner.
One piece fiberglass hull with Airex core and internal lead ballast. One piece deck assembly with teak decking. ENDURANCE is an unusual offering: a recent, substantial refit (at a cost of 1M + ) along with a price reduction has created a very unique opportunity.
“ENDURANCE” offers three staterooms with three head compartments. Owner’s quarters are aft and guests are forward.
Starting forward, aft of the chain locker, is a V-berth with custom mattress and filler cushion. There are two under counter storage lockers with double doors. Bulkheads are off-white laminate with teak trim in classic Herreshoff style. There are brass reading lamps, a large overhead hatch for access to the foredeck. Reverse cycle AC provides climate control.
Next aft to port is a small head compartment with H&C pressure water, sink, storage behind double teak doors, Jabsco electric head and ensuite shower.
Directly across to starboard are hanging locker/storage cabinets with arched teak doors and an additional set of large double arched, teak doors next aft with washer/dryer, storage for vessel spares and cleaning supplies. Below the washer/dryer is the 600 GPD Village Marine watermaker.
To port is the guest suite with double berth and custom mattress. There is a large hanging locker with the same cathedral-style teak doors utilized throughout the yacht. Adjacent to the berth is a lowboy teak dresser with three drawers and shelf over, and under the berth are an additional three long drawers. There are brass lamps on the bulkhead and LED lights overhead, plus a good sized hatch. At the foot of the berth is a storage locker and wall mounted flat screen TV with a double row of bookshelves.
The ensuite head includes a Jabsco Electric MSD with molded in sink, storage below and H&C shower. There is bulkhead ducting for the air conditioning/heating with adjustable vent.
Next aft is the main saloon, large by all standards at 12’ x 14’. Outboard to port is a large Samsung flat screen TV with a wrap-around dinette, surrounding a large teak table. There are overhead LED lights throughout the main salon, curtains on cabin sides, hatch overhead, hand rails the full length of the ports on both sides. Overhead is off-white with teak battens. Sole is teak and holly throughout, with multiple floorboard hatches for easy access to bilge and additional systems.
Continuing aft to port is the ships galley, roomy enough for two people to prepare meals, within a classic “U” shape with access to the on-deck crew, through an above sink port into the cockpit. Counter space is generous. Features include two deep stainless steel double sinks with cover inserts, starboard, over/under fridge/freezer units, abundant above counter storage, large under counter lockers, Tasco S.S. stove with oven and broiler, and a full complement of galleyware.
Opposite the galley to starboard is the passageway aft with 6’6” headroom. Outboard is the navigation station, almost 8’ in length with chart table space that takes an unfolded Admiralty chart. The navigator’s seat is a folding, swing out dedicated seat with padded seat and back.
Next aft is the owner’s suite, a generous stateroom with double berth, private head, opening ports, brass reading lights and dorade vents. Forward is a vanity desk with cabinets, drawer and folding, “tuck-away” seat, identical to the Navigators seat. The aft head includes an oval porcelain sink with H&C water, mirrored sliding doors with storage, Jabsco Electric Head, walk-in shower/tub and is finished in Herreshoff style white panel with teak trim.
Interior fit and finish reflects the best of British custom boatbuilding with finely fitted teak cabinetry and teak and holly soles. All lighting is LED, opening ports are stainless, lenses in all ports and hatches appear new, handholds are appropriately located, soft goods appear new: there is nothing by way of wear and tear that would suggest that ENDURANCE was not built in the last few years.

ENDURANCE is a handsome cruising yacht from the drawing board of Bob Perry, built by one of England’s finest, fiberglass boatbuilders. She has benefitted from an extraordinary “no compromise” refit which has modernized virtually every system aboard. She can be comfortably sailed with an able crew of two with the capacity to entertain many more. There are other mass-produced sailboats available in this price range along with older, tired yachts.
To any buyers in this size and price range, we recommend a “spread-sheet” approach: calculate the value of design, quality of construction, new equipment and inherent comfort against any other sailing yachts on today’s market and ENDURANCE will stand alone.
