1998 Dashew 80 ft Kelly Archer BEOWULF
BEOWULF was designed to be sailed by a couple without the need of extra crew. She is a remarkably stiff, comfortable and a fast passage maker. In moderate trades, with the wind from a close to broad reach, she will easily and comfortably average 300 miles per day. She is designed to travel 230 – 300 miles per day under sail. Typically, the boat moves at 85% – 95% of the wind speed with the small jib, main and mizzen. She has a simple, easy to use salt water ballast system which reduces heel by six to eight degrees and typically increases speed ten to fifteen percent. This vessel is fully fitted for extensive offshore work, has been shaken down and fine tuned, and is ready to head around the world after topping off her tanks and visiting the local market. The systems are functional, easy to use and require minimal maintenance. The interior is exquisitely executed by one of the finest boat builders world-wide for this size yacht, to the very highest standards and must be seen to be appreciated.
In Beowulf there are three staterooms, each with ensuite heads and a shared shower between aft guest cabins. From a single level flush deck, a door opens to the pilothouse which boasts 360 degree visibility. To port and starboard are full-length settees, suspended and with no side bulkheads, thus creating wonderful connection with the area below and a sense of spaciousness. These settees can also be used as voyaging bunks. Navigation instruments plus inside steering permit comfortable inclement weather sailing. Stairs lead down to a galley to port, and office/navigation to starboard, the salon forward. The galley leads aft to a guest stateroom with a double bunk and an ensuite head that, in turn, leads through to a huge walk-in engine room with totally accessible systems. On the starboard side the guest stateroom is a mirror image to that of the port side. The salon features a large table and L-shaped settee to port, and a settee to starboard. Forward is a door that opens to the full-width master stateroom with a large queen bed to port, settee and storage starboard. Forward of the bed is a separate shower/tub/toilet room with hanging lockers across to starboard. Beyond this is a large dressing area, walk in closet with sink and washer/dryer. On deck, a large table opens to accommodate 8 diners. Winches are within easy reach for hassle-free sailing. Non-skid aluminum industrial checker plate decks fore and aft while the sugar scoop transom adds safety and ease.
