Broker's Comments

In the Pacific Northwest's Chinook language "skookum" means "strong" or "sturdy", and this sailing vessel truly lives up to the definition... The melding of a beautiful and comfortable interior with the absolute brute strength of this hull design was expertly done. The interior layout is spacious and airy and provides great space and privacy for guests on long journeys. "He said" that the mechanics of this vessel provide the utmost in safety for journeying anywhere in the world. "She said" that the galley, saloon, and aft cabin with ensuite head and tub provide the ultimate in comfort

Safe and comfortable voyages are what this vessel is all about. Picture yourself slowly ghosting through the coral atols in the South Pacific on this beautiful sailing vessel!

Offers on the asking price will be considered.
