Agamemnon is a special CO32. Built in 2005, she was one of the last constructed under the supervision of Jeremy Rogers. Purchased by her current owner in 2019, she underwent an extensive refit at Jeremy Rogers Limited in the winter of 2020/2021. Full work schedules are available on request, and the highlights of the renovation are listed below.

Post-refit, her owner sailed her to the Baltic before sailing her back to Lymington Yacht Haven earlier this summer for a minor refurb from the Jeremy Rogers team.

Owner’s comments: 

Agamemnon turns heads wherever she goes and I will be sad to part with her. Aside from the crossing to the Baltic and back, she has been lightly used for summer cruising on the fjords of Denmark. She has been a massively confidence-inspiring boat, with a unique interior, and optimized for easy short-handed long-distance cruising. The Newport wood burner has proved to be extremely functional and transforms the boat when blazing away, and there is a bag of oak off-cuts from the Viking ship yard in Roskilde on board. Minor works planned for 2024 include replacing the Taylor’s paraffin stove with a new gas system. Nelson portrait in saloon is oil on canvass by Nicholas J Smith. I would prefer to keep it but open to a deal. She blasted back from Copenhagen to Lymington in six days straight earlier this summer, proving her worth as a highly capable cruising yacht. She is available to view in Lymington Yacht Haven.
