Additional information
Description

A go anywhere sailboat with a touch of the traditional, but nicely updated for today's cruising environment.
 This proven cruiser has been plying the waters of Pacific Mexico and the Channel islands since 2003 including 3 extended trips to Zihuatenejo and all attractions between, including a month in the remote Revillagigedo Archipelago, 250 miles south of Cabo. Where will she go next is the question. Imagine seeing whale sharks, hammerheads and manta rays from your self contained floating city or move between exotic ports and remote scenic anchorages on a very modest budget....
