“Koae” is a true blue-water cruiser – capable of comfortable liveaboard or offshore circumnavigation, and includes a complete commercial fuel polishing setup. She has proven her seaworthiness by weathering a tropical storm at sea unharmed and sailing thousands of offshore miles. Her interior was designed and finished in 2008 by a professional shipwright, and all systems were completely overhauled to prepare for major ocean voyages. In 2016, her engine "short block" (pistons/crank/block) was replaced and she was sailed 7k miles from San Diego through the Panama Canal and up to Rhode Island. She has been expertly maintained by a professional yacht engineer, and she is ready to set off on a voyage of a lifetime!
