One day, towards the mid-Eighties, sailing back from a race to the Fastnet, Germán Frers and Alan Morgan had a long chat dreaming about the ideal boat to go cruising. Their enthusiasm grow up to the point that, when the concept was fully closed, Alan wanted to make it real. He found the Ta Shing Yard as the perfect executor of his ideal and the Mystic 60 was thus born having the luxury charter in the Caribbean as a first goal. To fulfill it she joined a roomy interior to a powerful and sturdy hull, certainly a very different formula from what it should be proposed nowadays for the same goal. This model was so much succesful that Alan Morgan continued buiding Mystic 60, even from British boatbuilders until the 2000 decade. Among the 12 units built by the Taiwanese Yard, only one was ketch rigged. Moreover she was built for private use and her building process was stricttly followed by the owner's skipper to keep up with the very high quality scale established. One that was even higher than the already high Ta Shing standards. This is why this unit offers a so high quality teak built interior, so cosy, extensively using hardwoods and cold moulded. She obviusly keep the excellent lay-out of the "standard" model, which as we have seen was considered "ideal". But the artisans at Ta Shing surpassed themselves to create the most cozy and elegant possible atmosphere dow below. Even the f'c'sle with a comfortable skipper's cabin is so luxurious that it can easily double as a guest cabin with no prejudice. But, even if the interior is perhaps her most amazing and thrilling feature, we have also to consider that her hull lines and her rig conform a combination at least as good as the best boats of her era, I mean Swans and Baltics, and that she even outclasses them in practicality and easy of handling as she is a boat fully conceived for cruising work and easy and safe life onboard. Her very powerful hull lines are exempt of any distorsion made by racing formulae which so many times caracterize other contemporary designs. Her high aspect ratio rig confirms that she is a real sailer and being it conveniently divided in two different masts it is poweful and easy to handle by a reduced crew at the same time. The deck hard-ware is also fit with electric winches which make easy unfurling and tacking the headsails and hoisting the mainsail. Her present owners acquired her two years ago with the aim of living onboard for long periods and charter her in summertime. To do so, they submitted the boat to a long refitting period, revising and renovating equipment, accessories and instruments. The boat is now fully up-to-date and does not need any further work. The technical room is a clever feature and every equipment has been thought out for long periods of use and for blue water cruising in safety and comfort. The boat is now fully up-to-date and does not need any further work. No osmosis and no equipment has been left unattended or renewed. She is up for sale because the high standard charter work did not came up as it was expected thus she has become too big for her owners. This makes a great opportunity for the future owner as he will not be worried by anything. She is a real classic in outstanding conditions! The asking price has been already lowered and it does not match the overall investment put by the owners on the boat. A detailed list of works can be released a part.
