This raised pilothouse luxury yacht was built in Halifax and is considered an Adventure Yacht.

She was launched and immediately cruised South along the U.S. East Coast.

Transited the Panama Canal before continuing up the West Coast to Vancouver.

There is a blog of her journey that includes some videos, including some rough seas with the Gyro engaged, showing minimal "roll".

The builder has agreed to answer any questions from prospective buyers.

The Skipper who brought her around from Halifax to Vancouver is also available to answer and questions.   You may also hire him to re-position the yacht anywhere in the World.
