This is a true cruising vessel paying homage to the old adage, simple is better. Built in South Africa and purchased by the current owner from the builder. Sailed across the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal and finally came to us here in La Paz. She was put in dry storage early 2019 due to health reasons and is now being offered for sale. Very much worth the effort to check her out. She’s a proven offshore veteran, very strong construction solid fiberglass hull, ready to continue her adventures.

Located in the heart of the world’s best cruising grounds. La Paz, Mexico, the gateway to the Sea of Cortez. Dozens of gorgeous anchorages with white sand beaches, crystal clear warm turquoise water, many within a days sail to downtown La Paz.
