I have cruised extensively in Sandia Crest, with two Atlantic crossings and extended sailing in the English Channel, Mediterranean and Caribbean. It has met all my expectations for a blue water cruising yacht and it has been maintained and refitted as required. I am selling reluctantly as I feel that it is now time to switch to a motor boat.
