If you have ever dreamed of taking of sailing around the Caribbean for a season then look no further!
A proven and well equipped cruising boat, securely stored on land and ready to go again.
Starting your journey in Trinidad means you have all of the Caribbean ready to explore downwind
"Ansotica" is an extremely well presented and comfortable cruising yacht, with absolutely everything required to start cruising the Caribbean.
Last season we cruised her down from the BVIs to Trinidad, taking in all the islands of the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, St Martin, Saba, Anguilla, St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada before hauling her out of the water in Trinidad.
Along the way we made several upgrades to make cruising life more comfortable, and were meticulous with maintenance. She is currently stored on the hard, with protective UV wrap over the deck, and eager to go again.
The Beneteau Oceanis 43 is a great cruising boat for these warmer climates, with plenty of ventilation and a roomy interior. Shore powered ducted air conditioning is provided in all cabins for those night that you are not at anchor. She has a 4 cabin layout (3 doubles and 2 bunk). In addition the saloon table can drop down for an additional berth.
We added 400W of flexible solar panels on the bimini, more than enough to power the fridge, autopilot and LED lighting throughout.
Slab reefing main and roller headsail make for easy shorthanded sailing. An asymmetric spinnaker can be used for additional downwind speed. If the going gets rough, she has a full suite of storm sails.
