Are you ready to sail the South Pacific? 

Skip the long journey from the Americas and start your adventure in most people's dream destination, Tahiti!

This is a highly capable bluewater cruiser with a beautiful traditional Island Packet finish. It is a good all-round performance and long distance sailing-vessel, extensively upgraded by the current owners for safe and comfortable long-term cruising. There are so many great things to list about this boat, but a favorite to note is its readiness to set sail throughout French Polynesia, and the advantage that it can stay-indefinitely! No need to worry about pending import taxes, this boat is good to stay as long as the owner chooses. 
With extensive maintenance logs and records maintained by the current owners, this Island Packet's next family can feel confident knowing what has been maintained and/or upgraded, and when. Some highlights include:

Il s'agit d'un bon bateau de croisière polyvalent et de grand voyage, largement amélioré par les propriétaires actuels pour la croisière longue durée en toute sécurité et confort.
