Voyager is a lovely Bristol 54.4 ketch. She has undergone many cosmetic and mechanical upgrades.. She has great bones and offers family cruising and chartering potential in a nice, three stateroom, two head yacht, easily sailed shorthanded.
The 54.4 design is powerful, stable, and known for her sea kindly manners and turn of speed for long cruising and easy to manage Stoway furling systems on both main and mizzen rigs. The point is this: a lot less effort is required of the crew to reach more performance. The rig and systems make single handing possible. Her Flag Blue hull attracts attention in any harbor. Legendary Bristol construction offers a solid, hand-laid hull with keel/centerboard draft of 5' 4" allowing exploration of shoal waters and anchorages. Voyager was also fitted with a bow thruster for easier docking.
* Owner may consider partial financing or a smaller power or sailboat in trade.
