    About this Sailboat:

    Chewbacca is located in beautiful Bocas del Toro Panama at the best marina there(http://www.redfrogbeach.com/marina.html) and just returned from a great 6 month cruise in the San Blas and Bocas area. This is a great sailing – x racer turned cruiser that is fully open water capable and recently proven. New fridge, water and MUCH more to make her ready for new cruise and, she is already in the perfect area as the San Blas islands have to be seen to be believed. Turn key sailing in one of the best cruising areas in the world and, won’t break your bank! U.S. Coast Guard documented for easy exchange and safe transfer – no state transfer required (USCG rules). Contact Rick or Carol Hunter (just returned from full Panama cruise 4/12/11) at (# removed).

    Equipment on Board:

    Radar, 2 GPS’s, 4 sails, bulbous bows (by Crowther himself) with high bridge deck – no bow burying or hobby horsing here. Flat sailing with no heel and feels like a 40 footer in rough water. Also, autopilot, Force 10 two burner stove, new fridge/freezer (12/120v, autoswitch), Rockna 20kg anchor and lots of chain. Too much more to list – just returned from cruising and everything goes (fishing equip., Kayak, Caribe 10′ dingy, etc…). At Red Frog Marina (Bocus area – check it out at http://www.redfrogbeach.com/marina.html !). Great opportunity for couple or small family who want to experience this lifestyle on a realistic budget in the perfect area and on a boat that sails (and motors) like a dream.
