The Best Of Boat WorldsTM
Able Apogee 51

“From the windswept Aleutian Islands to the warm waters of Tahiti, the Able Apogee 51 Panta Rhei is ready to go—she should know, she’s been there before” – Swiftsure Yachts. Designed by Chuck Paine, Panta Rhei is an expedition style yacht fully outfitted for serious world adventuring. Everything about this boat is focused on utility, safety and cruising comfort.

“Her bright interior features a raised salon with forward galley, true navigators station, watertight bulkheads fore and aft, and plenty of headroom throughout. Combine that with continuously and meticulously maintained and upgraded systems since she was first commissioned, including a new genset with just 7 hours of use, watermaker, forced air heat, an air compressor, bow thruster and much more, and you have a vessel that stands out amongst her peers.”

Chuck Paine’s designs are known for being fast, stable offshore cruisers.

“In common with his other designs of medium displacement, modern performance cruisers (as distinguished from his more traditional designs) Chuck Paine drew a boat with a fairly straight sheerline and the maximum waterline length you can get without having a boat that looks like the ends have been chopped off. With her nearly flush decks and low-slung pilothouse, the Apogee 50 is uncluttered and modern in appearance, but Paine’s brilliant eye for the look of a boat has created a design that even an ultra-traditionalist can appreciate. This is a boat that looks good from any angle.”

-Practical Sailor

A special note about Panta Rhei – her interior was configured with standing headroom of 6’8″ to accommodate her 6’6″ owner. The new owners will certainly enjoy the extra headspace.

She is currently listed by Swiftsure for $499,000 USD in Bainbridge Island, Washington.
