Recent Price Reduction with Owners Encouraging Offers.

Currently located in Baja Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, Loomba-Loomba is a Fairweather Mariner 39. Designed by Bob Perry. This truly cruise ready blue water boat is in excellent condition and ready to continue cruising in some of the best cruising grounds in the world, Mexico’s Sea of Cortez and beyond! The current owners have meticulously maintained and upgraded this truly Blue Water capable World Cruiser.

Loomba-Loomba is a very good sailing boat. Bob Perry designed her for ocean passages, which are primarily off-the-wind and reaching. (see his article on our website) The cutter rig gives her an easy to handle sail plan, very efficient on a reach. She has a tall rig, so has extra power when needed in lighter winds. She doesn’t need white caps to do 7 knots. We have sailed her for years in Mexico with approximately a 110 on the roller furler to achieve those speeds and ease of sailing. Want more speed? Put the 135 on the roller furler. She is easily driven, and fun to sail.

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 piece of mind.
