1984 Warwick 56 - "Gallivant"



Based in Auckland, New Zealand

To ‘GALLIVANT’ is to ‘go about in search of pleasure…’

Built in triple skin kauri to exacting standards by kiwi craftsman Don Adolph, this cruising yacht has the classic lines and sailing pedigree of the Warwick Yacht Design office and an impressive cruising history having been owned and sailed by some of New Zealand’s top sailors and sailing families here and through the South Pacific.

Listed for sale after eight years with her current owner, Gallivant has enjoyed many recent upgrades and a level of care and maintenance commensurate with a yacht built so beautifully from stem to stern.

Her stunning mahogany interior and traditional layout is complemented by modern sailing and electrical systems.  With all sail and engine controls based in the aft cockpit, the centre cockpit is an onboard oasis, free from sheets/halyards and with direct access to the saloon and galley.

Proven offshore capability, integral strength and comfortable fast cruising, Gallivant is ready for her next custodian and presents well with an extensive inventory and range of systems aboard.  This is a beautifully built yacht and with NZ’s borders effectively closed for the time being is the perfect base for extended cruising and gallivanting around NZ and the South Pacific.

Recent rig check/report is available, viewings are welcome by appointment as/when Covid restrictions allow.

Asking price: $275,000 NZD – Taxes Paid
