General Details


"Dream Odyssey" can show you the way as she has "Been There" and "Done That" and best of all...SHE IS READY NOW TO DO IT AGAIN!

Her owners have just come back from Panama and have decided to explore new land-based horizons and are ready to sell their cruising "home". They have cruised continuously since 2004. Let their change in plans be your entry into the sailing lifestyle. They have spent the last two months getting her ready for her change of "command". Come see what a nice job they have done!

The full specs and pictures tell the story nicely. Please allow us the opportunity to show you "Dream Odyssey" at your earliest convenience. At her asking price, she will not be around long!
