One of a kind, and Nicely Done, this custom ketch has an aft cabin fit for a admiral -- never have I seen such an impressive and comfortable cabin on a cruising sailboat this size! Starting with its top quality Tempur-Pedic mattress, this cabin will be the envy of any visitor aboard, and yours to enjoy.
Practically every aspect seen aboard is massively built or oversized -- rigging, diesel engines, windlass, refrigeration, autopilot -- and the keel even has a heavy bronze "shoe" skid-plate! This is a small ship designed to take what weather comes to it.
Main engine, generator, refrigeration, batteries, water heater, etc. are all beneath the salon/galley sole, with convenient access fore/aft.
Owners since 1991 are retiring from liveaboard cruising -- tools, spares, galley-gear and On and On all stay with the boat = yours!
Your ideal 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!!
