This ketch was cruising from Panama to Guatemala in early 2018, and has been kept in a simple and reliable state of condition, ready to anywhere again and again!
The interior headroom and thoughtful layout make this feel like a much larger sailboat, providing you with a practical and comfortable cruiser that won't break the budget! The wide variety of easily managed sails help to keep your voyages fun and safe in most any weather.
Your ideal Mariner ketch is conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! While tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane-safe storage, same day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!

As seen mounted on transom in pictures, and if not already sold separately, this excellent Monitor windvane is available for an additional $1000. This is an obviously excellent price for a top-quality windvane!
There is a 12v Autohelm tiller pilot aboard that works with the Monitor windvane, but a new connector would need be fabricated if using without the windvane in place.
