This boat has been set up to sail offshore in comfort. This is NOT a dockside condo, and has been set up for short-handed sailing. The current owner is a knowledgeable sailor who has owned a number of boats, and he understands the importance of maintenance and upkeep. There is a complete SECOND engine and transmission in running order, as well as a third engine which may be used for parts! This boat is seen regularly sailing in the harbor, and everything is kept in excellent running order. The previous owner kept the boat in a low humidity area in Bonaire, under cover and on the hard when not in use. The current owner bought the boat and had the yard manager sail her to the Bahamas, where he sailed it to Charleston without incident. This is a quality boat that has been cared for on an ongoing basis, and one only has to step aboard to see this.

The boat is set up for offshore sailing and short handed sailing. The current owner literally sails alone many times, and handles the boat easily. He has focused on what he considers priorities for safety and ease of handling.
There are two on-board electrical systems. The 120 volt A/C is brought to the boat via an umbilical. It supplies power to the outlets and the battery charger. The 12 volt DC systems is supplied by 3 AGM batteries (2015). There is also a 3 stage battery charger with battery type selector as well as temperature shutdown (2015). The charge is regulated via a remote Alternator regulator, and the 12 system has an S.V.S. electronic monitoring system. There is a small trickle-charge solar panel which has it's own regulator. The alternator is a Kenyon 120 Amp high output alternator.
Cabo Rico has quietly become known as one of the finest producers of blue water boats, and this is one of their classic designs that has withstood the test of time. The cockpit is compact and safe, ensuring that the occupants remain comfortable. The decks are wide and easy to move on, and the shrouds are out of the way outboard. There are safety bars around the mast to ensure one's comfort and safety when working forward, as well as grab handles all the way forward. The owner has also put on a Boombrake as a Gybe-preventer. It is evident that the boat is outfitted for safe shorthanded sailing, which the current enjoys.
The Westerbeke has proven to be reliable and starts every time. It is a lower revving engine, which produces the necessary torque but is fuel-efficient. The oil is changed every 75 hours, fuel filters are replaced every 100 hours, and the fuel tank is kept at least 90% full. The transmission was replaced new in 2007, and the raw water pump was replaced in 2010. There is the "quick change" impellor housing with brass thumb screws to facilitate the change. The cutlass bearing was replaced in 2009.
This boat is outfitted for someone who wants to go sailing on a regular basis, whether it is short day sailing, overnight trips, or long passages. The critical structural items have been maintained, replaced or upgraded. A good example of this is the replacement of cable steering with EDSON ROD steering. It is a durable system which does not stretch or jump sheaves. The standing rigging was replaced in 2007, reducing the risk of rig failure substantially. There are numerous redundancies, including the A/P, monitor steering, and of course the wheel itself. There are numerous spares, including a complete and running engine and transmission. The seller is willing to assist in delivery of the vessel to most East Coast locations.

The owner had expected to keep the boat, and did not anticipate the terror his wife feels when heeling. Hence, a catamaran is now on his radar, and he is willing to let the boat go to new horizons.
