In 1952, Anahita V became to first Feadship to be delivered in the United States. At 80 feet long, she was also the largest Feadship ever built at the time, and she had an impactful legacy, allowing the builder to grow its business in America and become one of the most respected names in the industry.

Anahita V first splashed on the East Coast, but she soon departed for California, where she cruised between San Diego and Mexico before being seized by authorities for undeclared importations. She was then sold at auction, and was later purchased by race car driver Chapman Ducote. Although he planned to refit her with the builder in 2015, the project fell through, and Anahita V is on the market once again with Mark Cameron Yachts.

Allegedly the oldest surviving Feadship, Anahita V still features her original teak hull, mill-work and bulkheads. She is in need of a complete restoration, but if you have an affinity for classic vessels and are willing to commit to such a large project, she can be yours for only $126,910.
