Amanzi is a ‘G5’ Oyster 56; one of the last of the 56’s of which 75 examples were launched in total. She is particularly appealing to the enthusiastic yachtsman thanks to her cutter rig and fully battened mainsail, which offers exhilarating sailing performance and the ideal set-up for world cruising. Early viewing recommended. Amanzi has just completed a comprehensive refit in Southampton; she is now presented in first class order.

Please note there was some damage to the forward cabin and sail locker in 2016 which has been professionally
repaired in the UK, a full survey report is available.

A wonderful safe and reliable yacht, Amanzi has been loved, cherished and adored by all who have sailed her. Great memories, fantastic new experiences and no regrets, what could be better?
