Safety & Fire Protection

Full compliment of safety equipment including medical kit, strobe lights, fire extinguishers, etc.


HANNIBAL is an exemplary example of a classic Chesapeake Bug Eye ketch that has lived a privileged life.  She began her life as an emissary for Crocs shoes and subsequently retired.  As of her "retirement", HANNIBAL spent two years going through a massive redesign and total rebuild from 2010 - 2012.  This refit was shared between Knight & Carver Marine in San Diego and then completed at Baja Naval Shipyard in Ensenada Mexico.

Almost everything on board, from her keel/centerboard to her sails, is new.  Her layout has changed and all equipment is new as well.  All of the electrical system has also been renewed and her generator has less than 200 hours.  The main engine has fewer than 600 hours as of October 2017!

From her mechanical, electrical and plumbing, to her cosmetics and sail inventory, HANNIBAL is in ready-to-go condition and available on very buyer friendly lease purchase terms.
