Northern Sky was purchased in N. Ireland as a retirement plan. She was then outfitted for Blue Water sailing. Never chartered or leased, Northern Sky became a comfortable live aboard vessel with room for family / visitors. In recent years, the Caribbean with it’s many Islands offered several years of six months onboard and six months as landlubbers. Fifteen years of pleasurable ownership and a now maturing crew has pointed them towards family nearness and less active lifestyle.
The French built Beneteau 393 is an iconic model, one of the last with the classic cherry interior. Northern Sky is a sought after 3-cabin/2-head model with lateral galley. She is in great shape having been under the stewardship of meticulous owners. She is neat, organized, loaded with cruising gear and functional live-aboard adaptations and is ready for the next crew.
