About this Sailboat:

The Whitby 42 is fully equipped and thoroughly tested for living aboard and long term cruising. She is sound throughout and represents great value for this popular Ted Brewer built cruiser. This Whitby 42 sails well and is easy to handle. The Yacht is in great shape and comes with everything you need to live aboard and sail in the tropics.

The benefits are:

large comfortable Center cockpit protected from the elements by an hard dodger with removable panels all around
large solar panel array and a wind-generator for your energy needs
reliable, well maintained 4-cylinder Ford Lehman diesel engine
recently painted topsides, with anti-skid
AB 9 foot hard bottom inflatable dinghy w/9.9 Mercury outboard

AND BEST OF ALL, this boat is located in an ideal location to go cruising now in some of the most spectacular waters of the Caribbean.
It doesn’t get any easier than this!!
