This is a big powerful boat, designed and built in 1981 for the first owner to undertake blue water voyages in comfort and safety. Her design and construction was focused towards creating a top class ocean yacht, and recent voyages with the present owner have proved her to be just that. Curtis and Pape built all manner of boats having started with fishing boats and diverging into the yachting market with many different designs of motor and sailing yachts.
The present owner undertook a major refit in 2006/2007 which included a complete new rig to a slightly altered design. The design work was carried out by the renowned Ed Burnett and saw several small changes that have improved the handling and performance of the boat. Many other big jobs were undertaken including removal and replacement of floors and floor bolts and new keel bolts. After that she completed a voyage to circumnavigate South America via the Magellan Straits which she did successfully, battling incredibly bad weather at times and clocking up very respectable daily log readings.
The size and dimensions of the boat give her a lot of interior volume and make her a very comfortable yacht for extended periods. Sold with a full inventory for long distance sailing and a very impressive history.
