The owners/sellers returned to Guatemala in late January, 2016, for yet another excellent cruising season of fun adventure. Your inquiry is of course welcome anytime, and their cruising plans are said to be flexible to accommodate an inspection/purchase.
Your ideal cruising sailboat is already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! Now safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
