Sorcerer II is a 95 foot performance cruiser designed by German Frers constructed of composite GRP/EGlass/Kevlar by TP Cookson in New Zealand. She is equipped with a Southern Spars carbon rig, in-boom furling, three headsails and hydraulic sail controls. She previously participated in a scientific research program, the Global Ocean Sampling Expedition, studying the genetic diversity of the marine microbial world in all of the worlds major oceans, visiting 23 countries and island groups on four continents. The YouTube video 'Cracking The Ocean Code" showcases her capabilities, including the support of dive operations and highlights her suitability for long distance voyages.
Over the past 18 years she has been maintained to the highest standards with timely refits, rigging replacements, mechanical overhauls and paintwork. In early 2019, she was offered to, and immediately purchased by two associates who had sailed on her extensively throughout the years. Her scientific gear was removed and she was re-born as a luxury ocean going cruiser. After a wonderful summer of cruising in the Northeast, it became clear that the new owners plans for extended cruising in the Caribbean and Mediterranean were premature, given their ongoing work and family obligations--including the schedules of school age children--and they have asked that she be listed for sale.
She was outfitted with a new North Sails inventory and rod rigging in 2018 and her interior soft furnishings were renewed in 2019, giving her a fresh look complementing the carpeting and cushions replaced in 2014.

Five steps down from the center cockpit is the carpeted main saloon with extremely comfortable appointments.
The area offers extraordinary views with wraparound windows and is a perfect setting for entertaining and dining. While cruising, the chairs and sofa are an ideal 'spot' to sit down with a book or enjoy a view to the horizon.
The forward end of the sofa at the foot of the steps is used as a seat for the pull-out computer desk. This has navigational and shipboard monitoring electronics on the fascia and three generous drawers facing athwart ship. Immediately forward is a plush helm chair with machinery controls to starboard and a full display of electronics; repeaters from cockpit instruments, radar and computer screen. The chair is set for a clear view of the foredeck and horizon to port and starboard (depending on the angle of heel).
On the port side is a wet bar with a glass front cabinet for crystal and stemware, a drinks refrigerator and an ice maker. A full length curved sofa outboard provides seating for four at the dining table facing three comfortable dining chairs on center-line.

Updated Running rigging; spares include new halyard, genoa, reacher and gennaker sheets
From November 2017 through June 2018 SORCERER II underwent a refurbishing period in the yard in West Palm Beach, FL. The mast was pulled while rigging was replaced and serviced, new wiring for electronics and lighting installed. The mast and boom were painted.
SORCERER II has benefited from continued refits befitting her many miles at sea. For the past several years she has sailed from Florida to Nantucket and return while lightly used in those ports of call.
