About this Sailboat:

Five words to describe this boat: SOLID, FAST,RELIABLE, SAFE, COMFORTABLE.
She is well known in catamaran world. She took a first place in a cross Atlantic crossing in 1999. Charles Kantor wrote about her on many occasions (she is described in his book Sailing Catamarans).
Lots of space, plenty of headroom, tons of storage space.
She is not a virgin by boat standards. She has proven to be a safe passage maker and would take care of her crew in any adverse situations.
There are numerous safety features built in her design ( forward and keel foam sealed compartments, self depowering rig, modified hulls preventing her from digging in and many others)
The boat is docked in Port Charlotte, Fl (West Coast).
She is ready for inspection.
