 "JACK TAR" a beautiful Vagabond 52 Staysail Schooner that represents an exceptional value on the liveaboard/world cruiser market. 

 Live aboard in comfort and traditional style. Voyage with exceptional range, stability and ease of motion. Or cruise coastally with plenty of room for guests and entertaining. Or all 3. Jack Tar’s previous owner sailed her to Europe and the Med, then back across to cruise the Carib. As current owner, we bought her after losing our Formosa 51 ketch to Hurricane Irma to continue our 32 yr liveaboard life in a vessel with important DNA connections to our previous boat. She’s heavy (30 tons), steady and sea-kindly when others are bobbing and lurching like corks in a tub. She’s a schooner – one of the highest rated performing designs in seagoing history - versatile, commodious, weatherly, and less inclined to tack radically at anchor than non-schooners. She’s traditional – in design and appearance – but with a number of feature updates like a split-level deck and a modified center cockpit placement leaving an afterdeck for yoga, and with a cockpit enclosure providing dry sailing even in a squall. We have replaced a number of necessities with new for confidence. The pictures say a lot, but they don’t express your own physical relationship to the spaces and configurations… the “feel” of her, on deck and below. A live onboard review will do that, and you will find she is in sailaway condition – everything required to reach your home port or beyond, under motor and/or sail, is in fine working order (see “What We Would Do” section for more detail). We are offering her for sale AGAINST OUR WISHES. WORSE… WE NEED TO SELL HER SOON. Our only satisfaction in doing so will rest in sensing that her next owner knows and understands what “Live the Dream” means.
