She's truly designed for stable blue water cruising. Beautiful traditional ketch rig with wineglass transom. The full interior teak cabin has lots of exquisite hand carvings. Private head with hot shower is roomy. Jib roller furling makes her easy to handle. Comes with two over-sized anchors for secure anchoring. She's powered by a generous diesel 75 hp volvo penta MD 21A.
We are even painting the bilge as we speak!
