Excellent Opportunity to own this Venerable Steel Vessel at a reduced price! Ocean Watch is a stout, rugged yacht displacing 44 tons with a draft of 8-feet and a beam of just over 16-feet. Built in Havre de Grace, Maryland, in 1988, the center-cockpit sailboat’s underbody configuration is a deep fin with a skeg-hung rudder. The double-headsail cutter rig consists of a high-clewed yankee jib, a staysail, a powerful mainsail with three deep reefs, and an asymmetric spinnaker for off-wind sailing. For the last decade, Ocean Watch (ex-Danzante III) has been utilized as a marine-science research platform and live-aboard cruising boat off the coast of Baja California.

When skipper Mark Schrader set in motion his plan to sail “Around the Americas,” he knew he’d need a strong, versatile vessel built not only for the rigors of the Arctic Circle and the Northwest Passage, but also one capable of quick, safe, reliable passages across vast expanses of blue water. During an extensive search for the perfect boat on both sides of the Atlantic, he found what he was looking for in the relatively tranquil waters of Mexico’s Sea of Cortez. Ocean Watch is a 64-foot steel cutter designed by Bruce Roberts that’s been outfitted and laid out for extensive long-range voyaging and expedition-style sailing.
