***SALE PENDING*** Bluewater cruiser that has handled gale force conditions during Pacific crossings! Beautiful mahogany & African hardwood interior!

This beautiful cutter was designed by Canadian marine architect Cecil Norris and then built and maintained by a meticulous German engineer. The 44-foot cutter-rigged sailboat was launched in 1978 following its construction with high tensile steel and ferro cement.

A very special finishing crew was hired to bring a shine to the finished product, and she is often mistaken for a glass boat. There are accommodations for six with a beautiful mahogany interior with African hardwood accents.

She is an experienced bluewater cruiser and has handled gale conditions during several Pacific Ocean crossings. One crossing was a solo-crewed return.

The boat was repowered with a Volvo Penta D2-55 and is fully equipped for cruising or living aboard.
