I have owned this fine vessel for 2 years and she has treated me very well ... Really hate to part with her, but I am moving back to south africa.
I am doing the liveaboard thing on her at the moment, and we have sailed much of the Caribbean and done more than 5000 Nm with each other, ridden out 60 knot winds and 20 foot seas in this fine really well made vessel....SHE IS UNBEATABLE !!! in equipment, minimal maintence, simple singlehanded sailing and safety.
Though this boat is older she is truly a great sailor, she had never let me down and often outsails much larger boats She can be take on sea trials or shown at any time
Just to say thank you and to let you know that my boat is sold.
