Description: Bittersweet day, selling my home for the last 4 years. La Montaña is a wonderful vessel, if she’s around the size and price range your looking at then take a little closer look! She’s built for blue ocean cruising but just as at home in the inside passage as well. I’m moving to shore life to start a business so looking to part with her. I’ll list some of her best qualities below and then all the specs further down:

3/4 length cut away keel with a skeg for the rudder. Tracks super straight but with the cut away I can literally turn 360 degrees in place with a bit of patience and skill at the wheel and throttle. With practice you can back her up too. Not normal for a sailboat!

Wonderfully calm and peaceful in the cabin. That’s what sold me years ago, all you need to do is sit down inside and you just know she’s on your side and there’s some great adventures ahead for you two.

Easily single handed. No matter the wind, light or stiff she’s easy to get underway with the roller furling jib. With a little practice raising and lower the main is possible solo as well.

Steel hull. I can’t express my love of steel boats enough. Easy to work on, just chip or grind any spots of rust and then epoxy and paint on top. I can do it with you the first time if it sounds daunting. The main benefit though are all the floating logs out there in the BC waters, not to mention rocks. Dead heads everywhere! While I never sail at night because of this it certainly gives you peace of mind to know your hull won’t be damaged by any logs no matter how large they are. Haven’t hit anything yet, but the danger is always there.

La Montaña comes with 325ft of chain and 3 oversized anchors. I’ve anchored in all sorts of conditions and only drug once during an Arctic Outflow which was gusting up to 90km an hour. All I had to do was put out more chain and then she held tight. There is absolutely no way to express how much more confidence you have when swinging on all that chain. I’ll never sail BC without a full length of chain again. When priced out the 325ft of chain com
