The boat has crossed the Atlantic 3 times successfully and she is very seaworthy (Category A).

Since we own her, we have been going through major upgrades to make it the perfect liveaboard bluewater cruiser. She is in excellent condition with only minor cosmetic defaults easy to fix. She is equipped for circumnavigation.

She comes with numerous spare parts (filters, rudder bearings, cables etc.)

It is a 3 cabins layout with 1 head. The starboard aft cabin is currently going through upgrades as we are fitting a 75L Dometic freezer in.

It is a very easy to handle boat short handed which was our case since we owned her, everything line comes back to the cockpit.

Also, by being built in 2005/2006, the quality of the materials are still of a very good standard compared to more recently built boats.
