Owner's Comments of the Robert Clark 72 Ketch

Since I bought her in 2008 we have explored the Mediterranean, via the Canaries and the Cape Verdes across to the Caribbean and back via the Azores to Spain. Over the years she has been transformed into a very comfortable long distance sailing yacht, which we have sailed double handed or when racing in the Caribbean, with up to twelve crew.

Investments have included new engine, bow thruster, folding propeller, North sails, including self furling systems and two gennakers, standing rigging, new boom, generator, water maker, navigation systems, steering geer and anchor. Below the waterline and on deck she was media-blasted, filled, faired and refinishing in 2013 as part of her pre-transat preparations and the topsides repainted this year. She has been equipped to comply with Code Zero requirements for charter work and constantly maintained to a high standard by myself and a skipper.

Zenara is lying in Sant Carles de la Rapita, just south of Barcelona, being offered for sail, ready and waiting for her next adventure
