"Patty Jean" is Hull# 18 of the Chuck Paine-designed Cabo Rico 42 line and the last of this line produced. She is as close as you will get to absolute nautical perfection.
She has been cruised by her current owners for 11 years, exploring the waters of the Bahamas. They are her second owners--her first owner commissioned her with the idea that she would be as easy to sail as possible and have every creature comfort and safety feature imaginable. She has been maintained to like-new standards and looks as if she's at a boat show when you step inside.
Her cabin glows with the high-quality woodwork (Costa Rican teak) that you would expect from a Cabo Rico. Her galley is a chef's dream. Her engine is immaculate and easy to access. Her storage is ample. From her four electric winches to her bow thruster to her elaborate navigation station, she is everything you've dreamed of in terms of a seaworthy and safe and luxurious vessel. According to her owners, "she sails like a dream," and they always feel safe aboard her.

Rig and Sail Inventory This bluewater yacht is designed for the liveaboard cruising couple. Everything is designed to be manageable and provide all the safety and security you want in a cruising home. The sail plan is of designed for a couple. She is perfectly designed for the Intracoastal Waterway bridges and sometimes shallow depth. Her cutter rig makes each sail more manageable and allows for safe sailing in all conditions. The high cut Yankee head sail gives you visibility. The stay sail on a furler gives you options for heavy weather. With this yacht, the in boom furler is an added safety factor as you reef from the safety of the cockpit. The double spreader rig is well stayed with fore and aft lowers. The mast is keel stepped. Cabo Rico uses an elaborate mast step bridge which elevates the mast shoe so the mast base is never in the bilge water.
Electronics & Navigation
Hull, Deck & Ground Tackle Cabo Rico is famous for the qualify if its construction and for good reason. The hull is solid glass. Structural bulkheads are all glassed in to provide strength and stiffness. They are clad in solid teak and then fully bonded to both hull and deck using 3 layers of 1.5 oz. mat and 3 layers of 24 oz. roving. The hull to deck joint is a raised bulwark design that creates a large channel structure around the entire vessel which makes the boat even stronger. The joint is sealed with 5200 and thru bolted. The bulwark design has the added benefit of providing a vertical platform for attaching lifeline stanchions which is stronger and less likely to ever leak. All floor stringers transfers and sub- flooring are solid fiberglass. The solid teak and holly sole is attached with epoxy glue. There is no area of the bilges and substructure that is wood exposed to the elements. It is all high quality. There is a complete grounding system using heavy industrial wire and connections and a totally encased keel. Cabo Rico yachts are definitely overbuilt by production boat standards from the keel up. Chuck Paine's deck design is tried and true with high secure bulwarks for safety, safety was the primary requirement of the design. The mainsheet traveler is out of the cockpit forward of the dodger and out of harms way. The cockpit is deep and secure The deck handrails and high lifelines provide real security going forward. Probably the next requirement was ventilation and stowage. There are lockers galore with the aft lazarette and two propane stowage lockers and a large cockpit locker to port.
