Designed by the well known naval architect C. William Lapworth, this California-built strong, solid sought-after performance blue water cruiser was also meant to be comfortable and livable in her three roomy, attractive staterooms. Powered by a Perkins Sabre 80 hp diesel, and equipped with two fuel tanks, 270 gallon total capacity, she was built for distance but also serves as a great liveaboard with her practical layout. Magic has had the bottom cleaned every six months and gets new zincs every 60-90 days.
