    From the drawing boards of famed Kiwi Angelos Lavranos and built with outstanding attention to detail by the Fred Scholtz yard in the Republic of South Africa, ENCORE II began her life racing and cruising in the Indian Ocean.  With a hull and deck built to Lloyd's Certification and a versatile Solent/Cutter rig, the rugged construction and multiple sail plan options combine to deliver safe, effective passage-making abilities in all kinds of weather.  Want to make 200-mile days under sail?  This is your boat! 

    Belowdecks, smart use of space, warm, rich cabinetry and luxurious fabrics unite for elegant social areas, generous storage and secure accommodations. 

    ENCORE II has been in the hands of the current owners for more than 20 years who have enjoyed her in the Great Lakes, South Pacific and the Caribbean. Having gone through two refits during their ownership, you will find ENCORE II ready to go and nicely equipped for your next adventure.
