About this Sailboat:

Shared Dreams is fully equipped and thoroughly tested for living aboard and long term cruising. She is sound throughout and represents great value for this popular Ted Brewer built cruiser. This Whitby 42 sails well and is easy to handle. Shared Dreams is in great shape and comes with everything you need to live aboard and sail in the tropics. The benefits of Shared Dreams are:

• large comfortable Center cockpit protected from the elements by an hard dodger with removable panels all around

• large solar panel array and a wind-generator for your energy needs

• reliable, well maintained 4-cylinder Ford Lehman diesel engine

• recently painted topsides, with anti-skid

• SGC Ham/single sideband radio and tuner 

• AND BEST OF ALL, this boat is located in an ideal location to go cruising now in some of the most  spectacular waters of the Caribbean. 
It doesn’t get any easier than this!!
