Considering cruising the South Pacific then why not start your cuise in pardice as this fine yacht is already there!She is rigged as a true cutter and full-keeled, with a cutaway forefoot. Her mast is keel-stepped. She is a double-ender and rides big waves sweetly and with a dry cockpit. Fully loaded for cruising she weighs 30,000 lbs. Waterline length is 31 feet. Length over deck is 36.8 feet. Length overall (end of bowsprit to end of Monitor self-steering vane) is 44 feet.
She is well equipped for voyaging and has been around the North and South Pacific Ocean basins since 2000. She is a well-founded, ocean-going boat, designed by marine architect Robert Perry, and will take you safely and comfortably, anywhere. She has been affectionately described as the Jeep of sailing yachts. She is rugged and can handle difficult conditions well.
Powered by a Perkins 4-108 50hp diesel engine. She has a Hurth ZF 25 transmission. The drive-train is connected to the fixed 3-blade, bronze prop with a Globe Drivesaver flexible coupling forward of the PYI PSS shaft seal.
She is pretty much ready to go!.
