    October 17, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    “Prairie Dream” has just returned from two months of cruising in the Bahamas. She is a well maintained, well equipped, safe & comfortable cruising catamaran. “Prairie Dream” is an outstanding example of the very rare LRC (Long Range Cruiser) model PDQ. The inboard diesels provide better reliability, economy, additional tankage, strength and safety features. “Prairie Dream” is fully equipped for extended cruising with four solar panels and a water-maker; she is a very capable extended voyager.

    Prairie Dream is now available for inspection. Call today for an appointment.
