Looking for a well designed, proven, blue water cruising boat?

Look for performance, comfort and safety.

The full foil keel will provide the performance. The long keel, weight and ballast will provide the comfort. The versatile sailplan with the cutter rig and self tending inner staysail, the keel integral and encapsulated to the hull and the skeg protecting the propeller and the rudder will provide the safety.

Thirteen opening ports, seven deck hatches, four dorade ventilators, assisted by eight circulating fans ensure for lots of cross ventilation, and lots of natural lighting.

Cedar lined hanging lockers and drawers, shelving, large stowage lockers, teak and holly sole, teak cabinetry all add to the comforts of being aboard. The wrap around galley with the gimballed three burner stove and top loading refrigerator and freezer with separate (new 2017) cold plates is a safe work station.


2015 Ullman sails - Voyager main, genoa and staysail and new Ullman asymmetrical Spinnaker, the 50hp Yanmar, three blade feathering Max prop, watermaker,  wind generator and solar panels allow for days of sailing off the grid.
