She is truly ready to go anywhere you want to sail her.
Currently lying Whangarei, New Zealand after a recent passage down from Fiji (Oct 19). Cruise the beautiful gulf islands here in the southern hemisphere summer and then come May sail her to Tahiti/Tonga/Fiji for the winter OR we can help load her on the ship bound for San Diego or Florida in Feb 20 OR talk to us about negotiating delivery virtually anywhere in the world.
She is an amazing vessel that is set up well for offshore and sails and handles beautifully. Easy to sail or singlehand; she and the Monitor windvane will look after you in a blow while you sleep; and she is very comfortable living on anchor or at the dock. You will be well aware of her pedigree, build-quality, livability, innovation and performance (hull speed 8 kts!).
