    This is the Shearwater "TRUE NORTH". Recently returned from 2 month trip (May and June) from Key Largo to Bahamas via Bimini, Joulters, New Providence, Spanish Wells, Finley, Exumas, Andros, Bimini, and Key Largo. Total trip from GPS: 600 nm. Shallow water capability allowed the two of us, plus our dog to see the Bahamas most sailors can't get to with deeper draft. We frequently sailed in 18" of water. We felt the boat was up to the task.

  • Located on trailer in DeRidder, LA 70634
  • $15,000 or offer

    If you are prefer to sail in skinny water and visit remote, less frequented areas, this is the boat for you.
