Description: C'est La Sea is a heavily built offshore ocean cruising boat. Her heavy, long, deep fin keel with skeg-hung rudder give her both excellent tracking and great maneuverability. Her sea handling abilities are outstanding for long distance ocean cruising. And she is very fast, easily hitting 8-10 knots in a good breeze with little effort.

​Her 80hp Ford Lehman engine is both simple and reliable. It was recently replaced and currently has 1450 hours on it. The Borg Warner Transmission was also rebuilt. There is real 360 degree access to the engine and transmission.

​Since relaunching in August 2018, she has safely taken us offshore from Nova Scotia, Canada to Martinique in the Caribbean over the past 12 months. Before that, she made her way offshore from Panama to Nova Scotia with her previous owner.

The BD-35 compressor keeps the refrigeration very cold with about 50% duty cycle. The solar system easily keeps up with the entire boat's electrical demand, without running the primary engine or generator.

​The vessel has two water tanks that are 75 gallons each, and two fuel tanks that are also 75 gallons each.

​The mainsail and genoa are controlled by Rondal hydraulic furlers; each is controlled by a button at the helm. The staysail has a Proful unit. The entire rig was custom built and installed in 1991 at a cost of more than $50,000.

Ventilation is excellent. All four cabins have large overhead hatches, plus another above the settee. There are also 12 opening deck and hull ports to aid in establishing a cross breeze.

The boat is registered in the United States. It is USCG Documented.
