Boat Description

63ft live aboard sailing yacht for sale.
This unique blue water Motor sailer was originally a 63ft vessel. With the stern extension/fishing platform added in 2014, she is now 67ft LOA. She is a fine sea going vessel. She was designed for world travel and being self sufficient at sea for months at a time. Mo?Chuisle was also designed to function economically. She has a draft of 5ft 3in with the centerboard up and approximately 10ft with it down. She travels at aprox 7.3 Knots @1650rpm. She fuel economy is aprox 3 miles to the gallon giving her an estimated range of 3800 miles in ideal conditions.Her layout was designed through an accumulation of knowledge of a person having over 40 years experience living aboard, working and traveling on the sea. A lot of her features are not available on production model boats. Use of proven systems and quality parts have made her up-keep and maintenance, as easy and inexpensive as possible. Her interior design favors comfort and open living space, trending away from traditional chopped up, cramped, dark living areas many sailboats tend to have. Large skylights in the deck have made the interior bright and well lit naturally during the day.
