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.
