Lancer 44



Designed by Herb David and built in 1981 by Lancer Yachts in California as a high performance motorsailer, Jepeda IV spent her early years in the USA. She later sailed to Australia via the Pacific Islands, New Zealand and The Philippines. She was purchased by her present owners in  2008, registered as an Australian ship and has now cruised extensively on the east coast of Australia, "across the top" to Darwin and on through Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Andaman Islands. Prior to and during this latest chapter of her cruising life, Jepeda IV has been almost totally re-fitted, substantially upgraded and her sail wardrobe expanded, so that today, she is an outstanding liveaboard cruising yacht, (and a superb SE Asian holiday home), that performs very well under either sail or power and is ready to step aboard and sail away. See "Significant Enhancements" for a summary of major work since we purchased Jepeda IV in 2008.
