This is the ideal offshore boat for the adventurous sailor dreaming of off-the-beaten-track explorations. Do you want to do the Northwest Passage? Check out Patagonia? Go to Antarctica? This is the boat for you!!

She is a 49' schooner-rigged boat, made of steel. She was built in France in 1990 and had a complete interior rebuild in 2013-14. Foreign-flagged.

She is fully equipped for both safe sailing and comfortable living. She is set up for short-handed sailing, fully insulated for wintering in Arctic conditions, and in excellent condition. She has a swing keel that provides a 3.5m draft when offshore, that retracts to a 1.0m draft to explore shallow areas, and that can be fully retracted to be beached for maintenance.

She is currently located in Fukuoka, but the owners plan to cruise western Japan in the winter/spring (2023/2024) and then hand her over to her new owner. They will give the new owner a comprehensive orientation on how to sail and maintain her, and joining the owners for some of their cruising in Japan is an option.

A detailed list of equipment and specifications is available on request.
