For the first time since she was built 22 years ago, this remarkable vessel is now on the market.
Designed by Andrew Wolstenholme and built by Charlie Ward Traditional Boats Ltd in North Norfolk, JUNO was launched in March 2000 creating considerable publicity at the time. She is without doubt a unique vessel, being the first barge yacht to be built to such a formidable specification and to such high standards.
JUNO has remained in the ownership of Charlie and Helen Ward since she was built, sailing almost 20,000 miles, both privately and also as a commercial vessel offering day charters along the North Norfolk coast. Her longer private voyages include a 1,200 mile round trip to Falmouth in Cornwall.
Charlie has now retired from chartering and from boatbuilding after almost 55 years in the business, and is seeking a new owner for JUNO to continue sailing her either privately or as a charter vessel and looking after her to the standard she deserves. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a very well proven and successful vessel.
She is offered for sale in immaculate condition throughout, with an impressive inventory of both fixed and loose equipment.
Visually stunning, Juno turns heads wherever she sails.
