The Robert Perry designed "Sunflower" is a high performance blue water cruiser. She has proven her capabilities by circling the world and is ready to do it again. This circumnavigation experience has resulted in many up-grades to provide additional redundancy, reliability, and live-aboard comfort for couples cruising in whichever oceans her new owners may seek new discoveries and adventures.
Upgrades include roller-reefing for the staysail, as well as jib, with reefing lines controlled from an enclosable center cockpit for comfortable sailing in inclement weather; heavy-duty hydraulic autopilot and redundant Monitor wind-vane steering; oversized anchor windless and jib winches; aft arch lift to keep the dinghy safe in isolated bays; redundant refrigeration and freezer systems; 35 Gallons-per-hour watermaker for showers every night; and a central air conditioning for sleeping comfort in tropical marinas.
