This 35' Steel Ketch 'Motgang' is a well-travelled mini ship built for adventure. Voyages include Pacific and Atlantic crossings from New Caledonia to the Caribbean, from the Arctic to Africa. She is a functional vessel with a center cockpit; spacious, attractive saloon; compact galley; and after stateroom. Purchased in Norway in 2010 for a Pole to Pole scientific expedition, she was sailed to the Arctic, then down to Africa and then to the Caribbean. Upon the owner's arrival in Grenada, personal commitments forced them to abandon the remaining portion of their trip and they have reluctantly put 'Motgang' on the market where she stands ready for yet another adventure.
