If you are searching for a capable blue water cruiser that was designed and built to exacting standards then look no further. The Wauquiez Amphitrite 43 has a proven record to provide secure comfortable cruising. With a long fin keel, skeg hung rudder and balanced ketch rig the boat is designed to perform in offshore conditions.
“FRENCHIE” has just returned from a two year cruise voyaging from the east coast to Grenada and north to Maine. Her owners have moved back ashore as professional life calls but the boat has fresh bottom paint and is ready for her future owners to set sail.
These boats are a rare find and lauded by well known cruisers such as "Fatty" and Carolyn Godlander whom are on a 2nd circumnavigation aboard GANESH, a sistership to FRENCHIE.
