Hey - it made it to Fiji. Good looking boat but I've never heard of it.

Great boat. One has made a circumnavigation. Biggest down side is that the lift keel trunk takes up a fair amount of room in the cabin. They are all-around good sailers, and as well built as anything out there.

Thanks Doug, according to the second link it was this boat that did the loop. Yeah the keel trunk would be an issue with groups of people on board but would be quite comfy for a couple at sea I imagine.

Its just a shame it came up a few years too soon. Who knows the way things are selling it might still be there!

Hmmmmmm

Bigger Hmmmmmmmmm - 2014 minus 1988 equals 26 years old. 

 

Nice boat though.

 

I do wonder what the current average age of the typical fiberglass sailboat in the say 21 to 50 foot range is today.  20 Plus?

OOPS Misread the age, my own boat was built in 78 so maybe I had got fixated.

 

It is a nice looking boat but not yet priced to sell.

At least you can pick it up in Paradise rather than paying more for it in the US and sailing it there

Same boat ToG or just same vintage? If yes to first question, how would you rate it as a live aboard cruiser?

TOG has a Santa Cruz 50 if I remember correctly. Probably pretty nice as a liveaboard...
