Are you ready to sail around the world or do you want a reliable boat to enjoy the Sea of Cortéz or the Pacific coast of Mexico? This Hans Christian 38 MK II boat spent the last two cruising seasons in the Sea. With her Hasse-made light-air asymmetrical spinnaker, easy boarding with a swim ladder, and cockpit shades and cushions, this boat is the perfect way to enjoy the Sea’s beauty. She is also ready to sail across the Pacific, with a water maker, windvane, and almost-new heavy-duty cruising sails.

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.
