Velero 30', 1983
Great 30' cruiser/racer/liveaboard.
Just sailed from St. Thomas to Grenada!
Currently in Grenada now.
Originally built in Puerto Rico in the early 1980s.
This boat is a fantastic, racer/cruiser/live aboard.
The boat is a custom design and you won’t find another like her!
I acquired her in 2006 and almost EVERYTHING on the boat is new or rebuilt.
A complete refit to take me cruising in the eastern Caribbean.
I am now looking to "get out" and head back to the USA.
She has all the important creature comforts down below to make for a long term place to stay for one or two people.
A few weeks with three, and she'll squeeze 4 or so for a weekend.
The fridge/freezer makes ice cubes!
I'm a mechanical engineer and have enjoyed laying out this boat with the idea of making life aboard simple, comfortable, and as hassle free as possible.
All the systems work well and will continue to work if maintained properly like all things mechanical (and marine!).
The engine is a great old school yanmar diesel. simple, effective, etc. I've replaced the water pump, alternator (80 amp), almost, if not all the cooling hoses, ... the engine is old but good.
She was hauled right before we set out south and has a fresh coat of bottom paint as of March 2011, as well as a fighting lady yellow awlgrip hull as of that haulout.
