Owner's comments: We sailed on this superb sailboat for several years as a couple, with a young child on board. Fast and seaworthy, this large Ketch has quality fittings that allowed us to handle without any additional crew. Our circumstances have changed, and it is time to say fair winds to whoever takes her helm.

Serious sailors only need to see her once to fall in love and imagine blue-water cruising and worldwide adventures.... early viewings recommended, there are few opportunities left to own a yacht of this pedigree.
