Owners Comments

I purchased the boat in late 2017 and am the 3rd owner. As the boat had only been used in and out of a marina in Lisbon, I did several upgrades specifically to cruise in comfort and safety “off-the-grid” (i.e. not having to go to marinas often) in the Med. She has been a superb boat and has far exceeded my expectations with her great performance in the light winds in the Med, as well as sailing well with winds of over 30 knots, on all points of sail. The interior is spacious and efficiently functional, and the owner’s cabin forward with the Pullman bed and settee is one of the roomiest in boats even up to 40-42 foot. Reason for selling is that I’m looking for a larger boat to sail to the South Pacific and beyond.
