The sixty-foot pilot cutter Perseverance has been successfully delivered to her Dutch owner. Designed by Dykstra Naval Architects, the hull of this graceful yacht was built by Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw in Makkum and completed at the Claasen yard in Zaandam. She will spend the first few weeks of the season sailing in the Netherlands before setting sail for new adventures in the Mediterranean.

The owner had a very clear idea of what he needed in his dream boat, specifying a comfortable performance yacht with traditional exterior lines.

The owner also wished to be able to sail with a small crew so all the sails can be controlled from within the cockpit.

A metallic bronze colour by BMW was chosen for the hull, the carbon mast is black and the cap rails are finished in solid teak.

Perseverance’s interior is modern, spacious and luxurious, and her layout makes the yacht feel much larger than her 62-foot length would suggest.

The double cabins in the stern and bow both include ensuite facilities with toilet and separate shower.
