2022 refit. Recognized in many different ports around the world, Mustang has a fame all her own. She was originally built for an experienced American yachtsman. The hull is the well-known, performance hull of Doug Peterson’s Ocean 80 series built at Southern Ocean Shipyard. To incorporate a large lazarette, the boat was extended three feet, then taken for fitting out to world-class Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard. A trailblazer in her day, Mustang is one of a handful of boats in this size and price range that has a true pilothouse—completely enclosed, functioning for piloting and lounging –that also is open to a spacious lower salon. Three staterooms aft for owner and guests, all with ensuite heads, plus two cabins and head forward for crew, complete the beautifully finished interior layout.

On deck a secure, spacious cockpit and steering cockpit directly aft are the heart of deck life. Social areas on the aft deck and foredeck can be organized easily.

Though Mustang can accommodate up to three crew, this mini-superyacht can be sailed with two or three sailors. From the pilothouse full operational control of the yacht is available. From the outside helm one person can control the helm, furlers, and primary sail trim. The 2007 in-mast furling rig was taken out in the 2018/2019 refit and completely refurbished and painted; as well all the standing and running rig was replaced. Four new sails were added in Dec. 2020. During this extensive refit the entire yacht was painted and new decks installed with a new winch package, deck hardware and hatches. New electronics and galley equipment have been added. In 2021 the engine and large generator were replaced to complement the small generator replaced in 2018. Exterior varnish has been stripped and built back up while Inside renovations and replacement of soft goods invite living at its best. A walk-in engine room with two entries and a crane for launching the tender are an added benefit. In August 2022 Mustang completed her annual haul-out/yard period. The bottom was painted, rudder dropped and serviced, zincs replaced, thru-hulls and underbody gear checked, so she is ready for immediate cruising.

Mustang offers the enviable richness of a lovely classic interior in a modern, performance, pilothouse, superyacht.
