SV Atargatis, a Hunter Legend 40.5, is a two cabin, two head, wing keel 40 foot sloop built in 1993. Bought in 2021, the current owners refit nearly all of the major boat systems in preparation for cruising to Mexico. In fall of 2023 they left Seattle and sailed nearly 3000 nautical miles to Banderas Bay, Mexico. They have embraced the cruising life and are now looking for a larger boat. This boat has been outfitted to cruise and is currently in a transferable slip in La Paz, Mexico in some of the best cruising grounds in the world.
