Fiberglass sailboat built by the JEANNEAU shipyard in 1988, designed by architect D. Andrieu.
The owners bought her in 2013 and sail in the Mediterranean until 2016 then crossed the Atlantic for the West Indies and arrived in Polynesia in 2019.
It's with a heavy heart that I decided to sell this boat but the age of my usual teammates, all older than me, leads them to forfeit the type of navigation that I like, offshore trips and discoveries, and I find myself alone now.
I can tell this boat allowed us to realize the dreams we had.
We sailed the Mediterranean Sea: Turkey, Israel, Greece, Croatia, sailed to Venice St Mark's square, Italy, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, Sète, Baleares, Spain then we enjoyed Gibraltar, Madeira and then cross Atlantic to Martinique, stayed during 2 seasons in the Antilles.
This year we left the island of Grenada where the boat was wintering to go to Martinique then to the islands San Blas, Panama, Panama Canal, Perlas, Galapagos, Marquesas, Tuamotu, Tahiti and Leeward Islands.
This last cruise was for us the apotheosis that we had dreamed and the boat made a faultless without any technical problem with excellent speeds, for each step our average was always higher than 6.5 knots, we even went up to 13.5 knots under spinnaker.
For all our sailings we appreciated the most the impression of safety that it gives us even in the harshest seas and the strongest winds, the helm is light even in heavy weather which allows to keep the pilot almost all the time, her excellent average speeds.
In addition, despite his age she is still a beautiful sailboat that I always enjoy.
