Sparkman & Stephens designed bluewater cruiser. She offers safe bluewater and live-aboard comfort. The current owner is the second owner and has spent many years sailing her to various locations. She has however been in Cape Town for approximately 8 years and has not sailed. She requires a thorough service throughout including replacement of some of the deck saloon windows. She would offer very comfortable cruising once put back into good working order.
