Here's a great opportunity to start your trip on the Sea of Cortez in a proven bluewater sailboat. The yacht is currently located in San Carlos, Mexico, an easy drive from the southwestern US. The strong US Dollar means the tacos and Coronas are downright cheap. Cruise the Sea Of Cortez and further south along the Mexican Riviera for the winter months. There are many people who have been doing this for years and find it as nice or nicer than the Caribbean, more convenient, and less expensive. Dry storage is $200/mo. at Marina Real, and Mexican insurance is under $300/yr. keeping ownership very affordable.
This Swan 44 hull # 23 has been owned by the same family for over 30 years. She has cruised both US coasts, the South Pacific, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. In 2006 WIZ underwent a major refit in Seattle. All systems, wiring, and plumbing were replaced. She is equipped for extended cruising with major systems including: generator, water maker, solar panels, radar, Ham/SSB, EPIRB, new Achilles tender, and 15 HP outboard.
Designed by Olin Stephens, and manufactured by Nautor Swan, this 44 is an exceptionally rugged and proficient offshore sailing vessel. The owners will be bringing WIZ back to San Diego, CA in November, however if the boat is sold while still in Mexico they will reduce the asking price an additional $10,000.
