About this Sailboat:

This is an ideal blue water cruising boat for a single-handed sailor or small family. She was built in 1985 by TaShing, one of the best boat builders in Taiwan and has spent the last 12 years cruising the Caribbean, the first 11 as a live aboard home. She has a cut away keel, fiberglass hull and teak decks and interior. A new 56 hp Yanmar engine was installed in 2003. She is a double ended cutter and is dry and extremely seaworthy. If you’re looking for a live aboard or blue water cruiser you need look no further.
