This is a true Blue Water "Cutter Rigged Ketch" yacht to take you off around the world. The present owners of Tigress purchased her in 2004 and she has cruised many a mile and at least half of them single handed. She has had numerous upgrades to the engine, exhaust system, electronics, sails and fitting a Hydrovane wind steering system. She has cruised around the Mediterranean for 4 years then onto completing a 2 year Atlantic circuit via the Canaries, Cape Verde, Carribbean then returning to the UK solo stopping at Bermuda and the Azores. She has also looked after the owners sailing around Scotland including Orkey and Shetland before going back to the Bahamas and once again returning to the UK. All systems are a go on her and she is kept in tip top condition to do it all again. Recently this year she has had her routine maintenance, engine serviced etc. A comfortable yacht which will look after you.
