SV Shaula is a 1973 Kendall 32 sailboat.  Depending on how you count, 36 Kendall 32 were produced before the first official Westsail W32 #37 was built by Westsail.  Currently cruising the Sea of Cortez, the current owners have owned SV Shaula since fall of 2014 and have spent the last three years working on the boat in Port Townsend, WA. Just about every inch of the boat has been gone over.

The owners say:
“I’ve been working with boats my whole adult life and as a rigger for the last 6. It was a great experience getting Shaula refit and then to spend the last year sailing the boat down the coast and getting to see her in her prime, cruising Pacific Mexico.”

It’s rare to see one of these classic boats in such great cruise ready shape.  So don’t miss this opportunity to skip the refit and own a classic cruiser that can safely explore the Sea of Cortez and world.
