AVALON has quite an interesting history. She started out life named GLEAM at 102’ and shortly after delivery her first owner circumnavigated the world with his family. After returning, a six-foot extension was added to allow for greater storage space. Soon thereafter she was sold.
In 1998, her second owner returned the yacht to the builder in New Zealand where she received an entirely new interior and was given her present name. After enjoying many years of world family cruising, AVALON was then repurchased by her original owner and spent several years cruising the South Pacific.
Three years ago Avalon was purchased by the current owner and transported the Pacific Northwest. The Pacific Northwest is among the finest sailing territories in North America and offers some of the top cruising locations in the world. The adventures and family memories made in the Pacific Northwest while sailing Avalon will be treasured for generations.
Currently berthed in Vancouver, BC, this makes for an opportunity that most buyers do not take advantage of: the amazing sailing, scenery and incredible adventures offered in BC and Alaska. Sailing among the whales, sea life and eagles common in this region create memories that last a lifetime.
