Located in Curacao N.A. (about 75 miles north of Venezuela and about 60 miles east of Aurba in south central Caribbean Sea).
We bought the boat in June 1999 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Since that time we have spent about 6 months a year living on Sea Ya II. Our travels: Key West to Chesapeake Bay in the state of Maryland, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Cuba, Leeward and Windward Caribbean Islands south to Trinidad (where we were based for three years), Venezuela's Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela's out islands, Bonaire and Curacao.
AMERICAN BUREAU OF SHIPPING certified the construction 15 December 1994. Copies of the certificate are available.

GENERAL VESSEL LAYOUT:
In 1995 MacGregor Inc. produced a twelve page color brochure that shows our boat perfectly. We have a small supply should you want one just ask.
There are accommodations for 8 people (10 actually if the two bunks in the engine compartment are included) however that certainly would be a full boat. Twice we invited five crew members to join us (Antigua Race Week in May of 2002 and for an offshore race out of Key West) which was great fun. Generally, we limit the number of guests to two to four people.
There are two heads utilizing Vacu Flush systems by Sea Land Tech. There are three fresh water (hot and cold) showers, one in each head and one on the stern steps. The fresh water system is pressurized.
Large twin Aqua Air air conditioners, one located under forward stateroom V berth and the other under the companion way staircase.
There are twelve opening ports with curtains and screens. These ports along with the main companion way entrance, a mid hatch and fore hatch ventilate the boat very well. All cabin cushions inserts have been upgraded within the last two years.
