She is a transatlantic veteran, arriving in 2011 in North America. She is only on her second owner. She arrived on the shores of her current home in the Sea of Cortez by land transport in 2018.

Her interiors must be seen to be believed. Varnished mahogany and plywood, impeccably maintained. With solar panels, wind generators, and watermaker – this boat has all that is needed for world cruising. Her bottom has just been painted with anti-fouling (January 2020).
