Description: AROUND THE WORLD PROVEN BLUE WATER CROSSING YACHT. I visited beautiful Micronesia, French Polynesia, the Caribbean & many other islands in this yacht. If you lack experience, I will help you get under way

Anyone who has crossed oceans knows that a solid Fully Enclosed PILOTHOUSE is a MUST. Not just a canvas dodger or a partial enclosure (front & sides). That;s NOT good enough to get you safely and in comfort across an ocean

This pilothouse has strengthened safety glass windows, NOT plastic. The cockpit is dry & safe in all weather, day & night.. Please do NOT overlook this essential feature for successful bluewater cruising

Once it leaves harbour, a yacht is subject to enormous stresses on the high seas. A steel boat like this one gives you the confidence to venture out there with your loved ones, knowing that you are safe. The structural strength & impact resistance of steel is proven by engineering principles & in real life to surpass any boatbuilding material.

This yacht is roomy, reliable, comfortable & built for blue water offshore use, yet has all the classical good looks of a modern staysail schooner

Equipment: MPORTANT: YOU SHOULD READ AND KNOW ABOUT: Many people wonít know the difference between a real bluewater cruiser and other similar looking ones. Cockpit lengthened, at great cost, to suit long crossings. Bowsprit lengthened to take larger sails & provide extra power for pushing heavily loaded cruising boats. Schooner rig is a lot safer than Ketch rig. Both masts almost same height & a lot beefier than ketch which has tall main (the taller, the weaker) & short mizzen (only used to balance the rig). Steel hull has enormous strength. Fibreglass is plastic (Glass reinforced plastic) Keel 3 ft deeper than standard. Extension welded on at great cost. It made the boat very very stable on the high seas and capable of wearing very large sails. Deck box invaluable for storing gear, zodiac, paint etcÖ Immensely Strong fittings to attach parachute anchor. On glass boats people tie to mast (very risky) because itís the only strong enough point. Mine passed the test in heavy storms. Steel framed covered battery boxes. Most production boats put them in an open box. In bad weather the batteries fly out. Super-safe cooking gas boxes- One piece US Coat Guard Approved gas lines from cylinder, thru deck (no joins) all the way to stove and water heater. Also has 4 gas detectors. Unbreakable rudder. Supports welded to steel keel. Will never lose rudder. All designed by naval architects & engineers. Safety is my no.1 priority. Steel ìAî frame compression posts under both masts. Many boats have lost their masts because wind load was too much for flimsy compression posts. Steering cables & bronze sheaves are so big and strong they cannot break even in gales. You try that with mickey-mouse gear. Many boats have small electric autopilots on the wheel. These ìtoysî work in harbour but are inadequate when having to deal with loads in heavy weather. I have a Simrad Robertsons commercial model Under-Deck Hydraulic auto-pilot. It is mounted directly on the rudder post, below decks and is driven by a hydraulic ram. The boat will auto steer in very large seas and storm winds. In lonely anchorages, safety is an issue. I spent thousands of $ putting removable safety bars on all openings. They cannot be sawed off because of a special design. In Majuro, a doctorís boat next to ours was broken into in broad daylight. At night, when sleeping with hatches open we felt very safe because of the bars. There is so much storage that you can cruise far for long periods. All storage is fitted with latches to stop contents flying in heavy seas. Bunks are designed for all weather. Lee boards, lee cloths, etc.. Basic seamanship, but absent in most standard boats. Floor openings have bronze latches. A rare feature. Bronze ventilation fittings fitted to all 40-plus storage compartments. Essential to prevent mould. Rudder post extended thru deck for emergency steering. A super-rare feature. Chart table is full-size & near back hatch. Instrument repeaters such as auto-pilot controls are mounted there, along with radio equipment, internal GPS etc.. It is important to go in and out of the nav area with least disturbance to others who are sleeping. Galley designed to keep cook safe in all weather. Gimballed stove, pressure water & storage within easy reach. You learn with experience. All electric pumps (water supply, sump, bilge, toilet) are fully backed up by duplicate manual pumps. If you lose power, all functions still work. .....
