Crazy Horse, a Sundeer 60

Crazy Horse is a 1999 Sundeer 60, the last one built by TPI in Rhode Island. She embodies the characteristics of a classic sailing yacht, built to voyage with an emphasis on safety, efficiency with a shorthanded crew.

It’s a boat that quickens at each extra knot of wind; and when you couple that with an answer to the helm, that is as precise as the steering of a superb road car, you would just as soon sail Crazy Horse to Tahiti, as you would taking her across the Chesapeake Bay.

Crazy Horse has a hull shape that is narrow and long on the waterline with buoyancy at both ends, a fine entry; and flat forefoot, which keeps the boat highly maneuverable, on or off wind conditions. This hull shape is easily driven and her sail plan much smaller. With her deep spade rudder, foil keel of lots of lead; all fuel and water tankage, with big heavy traction batteries low in the bilges, means Crazy Horse stands up straight and flies forward while firing on all cylinders.

Built-in security on Crazy Horse, are fore and aft fully watertight bulkheads, with dedicated machinery areas. Construction is rock solid, with a massive glassed in grind system, which translates to zero flexing. This design is meant to voyage on in 100% total safety and comfort.

On deck, Crazy Horse is meant for couple cruising. With all lines that lead to the cockpit, for the furling jib and staysail, cruising chute; and mainsail winches. This 60-foot racehorse is a breeze to venture far away; again, all with ease, safety, and comfort. 

She offers a new composite mast with a composite “park avenue” boom. Her hard forward watertight dodger and cockpit settees make the miles fly by in absolute comfort. She has a new Northern Lights generator and new ac/heat units with diesel heat throughout. New hull paint, massive ground tackle, new ABI aluminum RBI with new outboard, top of the line sails; all in excellent condition, and her running and standing rigging has always been renewed. Her electronics aboard are commercial top shelf grade. Everything anyone would ever want and ever need, is found on Crazy Horse.

Her interior is so well thought out and impressively comfortable, that a couple can truly enjoy; with plenty of natural light, handholds and storage. She has the largest and safest galley on any boat under 75 feet. Upper and lower sea berths aft, a full bathroom where one needs it; and hull windows to watch the fish and miles fly by. The huge master centerline forward stateroom is bigger and more comfortable; and as convenient as one would find in any of the world’s most expensive hotel rooms. It’s all as close to perfection as perfection can ever get. Certainly one of the greatest offshore world voyagers ever created.
