Designed from the outset as a fast, comfortable, true blue-water cruiser, the Perry design has met the goals perfectly. She is easily handled by a couple, or can be single-handed by an experienced skipper. All sail controls lead to the cockpit, and the main and jib sheet winches (electric) are easily reached by the helmsman, as are the GPS, autopilot, chart-plotter, VHF and engine controls. She is a one-owner yacht, with no repairs or refits needed.
When first approaching this custom 59 foot custom performance cruising sloop, designed by Robert Perry, one might question if she was a race boat at one time. My eyes quickly went towards swept back hard dodger and the thought on how comfortable the cockpit must be for long ocean passages. I glanced at the furling boom system along with the roller furling headsails. This blended in with electric primary winches and state of the art electronics I immediately understood that this boat could be easily sailed by two people. Stepping aboard this performance cruiser, from the stern transom steps, the first item that jumps at you is the large wheel. Placing your hands on the wheel of these boats immediately places an ear-to-ear smile on your face on the FUN you will have with a following sea behind you. Another very important feature to this Perry 59 is the amount of interior luxury you get with grand prix performance. As you step down the companionway, the first thing your senses pick up is a warm and fuzzy feeling vibrating from the interior luxurious. Starting with the large owners stateroom forward that provides a comfortable sleeping arrangement at anchor. Shelves and teak trim run along the hull side. There is a large opening hatch above. Aft and to starboard, there is a large stall shower. Across and to port is the head. The owners stateroom also features a vanity with plenty of storage throughout this luxuries stateroom.
