|Location||United States, United States|
A legendary ocean cruising yacht, a perfect balance of comfort, performance, and seaworthiness.
This Gary Mull design was built to the highest standard at Ta-Shing shipyard, Known for their bulletproof hulls and some of the best joinery work in the world.
If you are planning to cast off and sail around the world, making passages in the ultimate comfort and safety this vessel is not to be missed.
Her current owners went through the boat stem to stern in the spring of 2017, preparing to push off that fall, but a change in circumstances forces them to sell and stay ashore for a few more years. Their loss is your gain for a turn-key voyager.
New standing rigging, chainplates just pulled and re-bedded, new sails, recent re-powered. Fully equipped for serious ocean voyaging.
This is a 3 cabin, 2 head layout with spacious owner's stateroom including private head with stall shower aft, galley to port, and 2 forward cabins and a forward head.
