Areyto For Sale

1981 Velero 30 footer

US Documented Vessel
CSA rating

Originally built in Puerto Rico in the early 1980s. This boat is a fantastic, racer/cruiser/live aboard. The boat is a custom design and you won’t find another like her! I acquired her in the 2006 and almost EVERYTHING on the boat is new or rebuilt. A complete refit to take me cruising in the eastern Caribbean. I am now looking to “get out” and head back to the USA.

Some things that are new/replaced and the approximate dates the work was done. I have receipts for all the big ticket items and a manual for every piece of equipment on the vessel.

– All thru hulls replaced and all plumbing completely redone
– All 8 ports along the cabin sides were replaced with new
– Companion way was rebuilt
– All deck hardware was removed and Insignia white with Whisper grey Awlgrip was applied to the deck.

– Interior was completely gutted down to a few bulkheads and structural members. A new teak and holly sole was installed as well as all new cabinetry and a custom built in Adler barbour “cold machine” refrigerator.

– A completely new electrical system was installed. A 450 amp hour house bank and a starting battery. The only original wires on the boat are part of the engine wiring harness. Everything else is BRAND NEW. I also have an up to date wiring diagram should a problem arise.
– North 90% jib ordered

– Brand new Sparcraft mast, standing rigging, chainplates, and halyards replaced.
– Brand new Doyle mainsail and North 110% jib.
