About this Sailboat:
One of a kind, heavy duty, veteran cruiser is ready for a new captain and crew, and awaits you on the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal. Schooner rigged, four roller furling sails makes her easy for a couple to handle, center cockpit, a sturdy veteran, blue water cruiser. 60′ LOA (includes bow sprit and aft davits) She handles the seas well with a heavy duty fiber glass hull (1.5″ thick at water line) and a full keel. A large non-skid, fiberglass, open deck allows for easy sail handling, room to walk around and lots of space to relax in the sun. The roomy and fully enclosed bimini dodger can be used with either ison glass and/or screens provides great shade in the day and comfort on those chilly night passages. Panama Flag fully documented and prepared for blue water sailing. She is in good condition, sea worthy and is a big hunk of boat that rides like a dream, in all kinds of weather. On June 2009 she underwent a mayor update including new rigging whole painting job and equipment update. This boat is made for comfort, and will take you anywhere! Easy to handle for a couple, all roller furling sails, schooner rigged to get the best out of a boat this size. Has a NEW Cummins BT-4 Turbo, 135 HP engine just installed NOV ’07 with 80 hours.
Boat carries 350 gallons of fuel for long range cruising. This cruiser is a very comfortable liveaboard with beautiful wood interior, updated decor, lots of room and incredible storage! It has been hauled out every 2-3 years for bottom jobs, and new paint, checked all thru holes; checked prop, and rebuilt rudder bushings, sanded, painted, etc. and other minor cosmetics were completed. The boat is back in the dry storage after a small trip to Cartagena on June 2009; Surveyed in Panama in 2005 – quoted replacement value before all renovations was at over $175,000 and is available upon request. I am currently working in the USA and have to sell her because I cannot travel as often as I want to sail with her, but will facilitate in Panama your request to see the boat.
