Halcyon has undergone extensive re-fits in 2017 and 2020, has now left the Mainstay Marine Shipyard in the Milford Sound (South Wales UK), completed her sea trials and will be MCA charter coded during Jan/Feb 2021.

Deckhands who have a particualr interest in the practical/project side of yachting might like to be included in the life of this yacht. Access to Malaysia for non-nationals is retricted until January 2021, so time on this yacht is best planned for later next year. 

These yachts are co-owned by 2 guys based in Hong Kong, one being a skipper with 4000 hours of sail and motor yacht experience. The lifestyle on-board is informal.

For those who aspirations to become chart yacht skippers, Halcyon represents an opportunity to run a near unique experience as classic Inchcape yachts are now very rare vessels. Your ideas and thoughts will form part of life on these yachts.
