36' Scylla Center Cockpit Ketch

Hi All,
I am brand new here and figured it would be a good place to start for information on my first boat buying search...
Does anyone know anything about the Scylla brand boat? Sailing performance, build quality etc? It was built in S. Korea by W. De Vries Lantsch.
I have looked at one in Annapolis, Lady Bug, that is a 1981, 36', center cockpit ketch rig. 5'7" draft with 9.5ton displacement. Said to have sailed to bermuda a few times. She has tons of room below, with big aft stateroom and large head with shower before the V berth forward. Large Nav Station and galley.
Any comments would be appreciated.
My personal email is mehl_kp@hotmail.com
Thanks a lot, Jake

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

hmmm, so no one has heard of it I guess? I wouldnt doubt it as it was surely not a production boat. I am getting the survey done tomorrow, so we will see how it checks out

The sale is going through, "Lady Bug" (soon to be renamed) will be mine by the end of next week!!! I had to go from Cape May to Annapolis twice in the last two days because they didnt have enough water to haul her out the first day for the survey. But fortunatly by going down the second day, the seller was there and I got to pick her brain for a few hours after we signed the papers about the boat. She was an awsome lady, all of 4'11" who had lived aboard for years and sailed her to bermuda twice single handed!!!
She will be docked in Annapolis until mid june when I am going to take her up to Cape May. The seller is leaving everything on board, which is awsome, tons of gear, pubs, and everything else needed to sail right away.
I am waiting for the final survey report, but the summary went through good, with nothing out of the normal coming up for a 25 year old boat. But the hull and decks are all in great solid condition and only one small repair that will need to be adressed before crusing.

Scylla on yachtworld... I got her for MUCH less than original asking, mainly because the woman was getting out of boating/live aboard due to age and work reasons.

Congrats, although at 5'6" I don't really consider the boat shoal draft. What will you be re-naming her??

Beam is 11" btw

Thanks all... I am debating the name still, but the frontrunner is Marabelle Anne, which is a combination of both my grandmothers names, Marilyn and Annabelle and my moms middle name, Anne.
She is a a very heavily built boat typical of that area and was built by Shallw Craft at Kang Nam Shipbuilders in Busan, designer W. De Vries Lantsch.
I am looking forward to doing some re-decoration and getting on the water!!!
