Able cruiser ready for blue water!

The owner has recognized the large amount of ‘well spent’ dollars in preparing this three-stateroom cruiser for an extensive cruise to the South Pacific and beyond is a gift to the next owner.  Originally a fresh-water boat, the previous owners cruised extensively, sailing ‘double-handed’ on many ocean passages.  The extensive re-fit in 2012-2013 was painstakingly extensive covering all aspects of machinery and installations.   In 2014 the final stage of her preparation was completed with bottom and topsides stripped.  With her gleaming dark blue hull she has been sitting under cover on the ‘hard’  in anticipation of a new owner who will appreciate the extent to which she was prepared for a voyage not taken.
