Cavalier Yachts based in New Zealand built their boats to be true blue water cruisers and to sail in some of the most demanding conditions in the world, the Tasman Sea in Southern Ocean. These boats are known for their high quality of construction and attention to detail. They feature hand laid hulls with fore and aft watertight bulkheads. They have exquisite interior joinery in exotic hardwoods such as “Kauri”. They have a long fin keel with a skeg mounted rudder that will guarantee a good turn of speed in any condition.

This is a must see vessel for the serious boater on a budget who wants an easy to handle, comfortable cruiser that is an ideal boat to cruise the world's oceans today.
