1968 Abeking & Rasmussen Full powered auxiliary aluminum ketch
Yacht price :
STEFI is an extraordinary example of a Phil Rhodes design which was built in aluminum and teak to the highest standards by Abeking and Rasmussen in Germany. She has benefited from the best of care and is exceptional in all respects. Accommodations include well appointed private staterooms fore and aft, each with its own enclosed head. There is a raised dinette with light and great visibility just forward of the center cockpit, and the pullman style galley is opposite.
STEFI is small enough to be easily handled by a couple, while at the same time offering private accommodations for guests or other family members.
Stefi was beautifully designed and built, has been maintained to very high standards, and is highly recommended.
