For cruisers that need some space for a family or appreciate the accommodations only a 51ft classic cruising Ketch can provide, Tulum V is a heavy displacement beast of a boat set up for comfortable world cruising.

The current owners are a cruising family actively cruising Mexico’s Sea of Cortez and are reluctantly putting their beloved boat on the market.  With recent projects including the addition of LiFePO4 batteries, new chain plates and standing rigging and a haul out for new bottom paint, this boat is ready.  The Ford Lehman 120Hp Motor was rebuilt in 2019 as another bonus!

Buying a boat in Mexico can have some tax advantages in saving you state sales
tax and the boat is already where you want to start cruising. When buying a boat in
Mexico, all of the title transfer, paperwork, and funds transfers are handled in the
United States by a Marine Documentation Services Company for your convenience
and peace of mind.

The owners of La Paz Cruisers Supply and Brokerage are cruisers themselves and
have been living and cruising aboard in Mexico since 2008. Our team has crossed
oceans, sailed to the South Pacific, delivered catamarans from South Africa and
sailed around the Caribbean, Mediterranean and world. Our goal isn’t to waste your
time, but to help you find a boat that fits your budget and dreams.
