Her 3 stateroom layout comfortably sleeps 6 adults and is ready to continue  worldwide, Mexico or coastal cruising with her new owners. This is a genuine “walk aboard and leave” example and is in tip top condition. Nothing to add or spend. Solar, generator, life raft, dingy, outboard, 2 x “Rocna” anchors , water maker, electric winch, low engine hours. The yacht has been configured with a staysail and running backstays. Great when you are flying the Genniker.

Buying a boat in Mexico can have some tax advantages in saving you the 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 piece of mind.
