An excellent example of a custom Ted Brewer design. The boat is set up (and built) for long term liveaboard blue water long distance sailing. The current owners have taken great care of her. She will stand out in the crowd and the sellers have labeled her the best on market. I can agree with them.

She is currently on the hard for this hurricane season. The Hurricane season is about over, and she is scheduled for re-launch in December. The vessel can be viewed and purchased before that time if the buyer is ready to cruise now.
