SUNDOWNER HAS BEEN SOLD!! Congrats to the new owners Dale and Karen!

UPDATE 03/21/17:
Sundowner is reduced by $10,000k to $39,500k.
Location Panama, Central America

Tate and I are selling SV Sundowner, a Westsail 32 1974 sailboat. She was completely refit from 2010 to 2015 and is being worked on as we sail and live aboard. We planned to sail around the world but health reasons are forcing us back to the States. This is an incredible deal. We spent over $100k total and 5000 man hours getting this boat in shape.

She is ready to cross oceans RIGHT NOW. She is LOADED with ALL new rigging, new Monitor windvane, new Beta Marine engine (<300hrs), new fuel tanks (80 gal) and filter setup, new batteries house and starting, all new canvas including dodger, bimini and all sail/hatch covers, foredeck sunshade, A TON of sails: 2 mains, a 120 jib, yankee, staysail, storm staysail and trisail, UK flasher spinnaker with sock, Rainman 18 gph watermaker, Engel Fridge, fancy internet setup, new plumbling, new water tanks (74gal) Airhead composting head, new electrical, ALL LED lights, 500 watts of solar, VHF tied to Garmin chart plotter with AIS, Garmin world charts for coconut milk run, Delorme satellite text messenger, new and stored in salon Revere 4 person offshore liferaft, Eprib, Ultrasuede cushions in salon, all cabinets, bilge and engine room painted with Bilgekote an epoxy paint, Dickinson Caribbean 2 burner stove w/h 2 propane bottles, bug screens on all portlights and hatches, new bottom paint Nov 2016, Bilge pumps, Manson Boss 60lb anchor with 200 ft of chain, other anchors, 600ft anchor rode, Portabote 10′ folding dinghy, new 2 stroke Yahama outboard and a million other improvements and extras (jerry jugs, spares, linens, provisions, galleyware, equipment).

Literally you can step aboard Sundowner with your personal possessions and sail away. She is totally self sufficient and can stay at anchor for many months or more without the need to go to land. She has no AC shore power set up. No complicated systems to fail and break. She is a well ventilated and cool boat that has double bubble insulation under the side decks, in the head and in the vberth.

Her interior is rich and warm with teak and mahogony throughout. She is a factory finished Westsail.

Sundowner is currently in the San Blas Islands Panama, Central America (Panamarina) and we need to sell her as soon as possible. Panama is out of the hurricane belt and it’s only $300 dollars a month to store her on the hard at Panamarina.

Travel here is easy to Tocumen International Airport and there is no tax to be paid to Panama as she is here as a Yacht in Transit on a cruising permit valid until Sept 4th(1 yr renewable). US citizens get a 6 month visa if you fly in. We can get all documents notarized at the US embassy in Panama City.

We are done cruising for now and have jobs lined up back home so everyday we spend here we are losing money back home.

To facilitate a fast sale we have recently reduced her already low price of $49,500 to $39,500. Our loss is your gain. This is one heck of a deal. Please contact us if you are interested at SundownerSailsAgain at gmail

Price: $49,500 $39,500

Sundowner is a 1974 factory finished Westsail 32. She has circumnavigated 3 times and has been almost continuously cruised or lived aboard for the past 40 years, receiving constant attention and upgrades throughout her life. She is a true long range, rugged, water/energy autonomous, blue water cruiser. Her latest major refit/rebuild in 2015 focused on low maintenance, strong gear, and comfort at anchor.

Since 2015 she has been sailed from New Orleans Louisiana down to Panama where she resides currently.

The Westsail boats are legendary for their blue water capabilities. Being factory finished assures those qualities. In addition, Sundowner has an engine with less than 300 hours, a 18gph water maker, 500 watts of solar, a freezer, and a very long list of improvements.

She is offered for sale and we believe she is the most updated and modernized Westsail on the market today. She is truly turn key and ready to sail away. Everything is stocked, provisions, a full galley, fuel, water, new batteries, etc. We currently live aboard and can answer any questions about her readiness to meet your needs.

We spent over 70 thousand dollars and 5000 man hours upgrading and lovingly refitting this boat. We have had an incredible time on this comfortable and seaworthy Westsail. While we have had an incredible time sailing her over the past 7 years but it’s now time to let her go to her next owner’s who will hopefully take her farther to distant shores. Health concerns (Hip, lower back and other joint issues issues) force us to sell.

If someone buys it soon, there is still time to take her across the Pacific this year as she is located next to the Panama Canal in the beautiful San Blas islands. Travel here is easy, and she is ready to go. Make an offer, we are motivated to sell. We can also deliver to anywhere on the Gulf Coast of the USA and will consider delivery elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Price: $49,500 OBO
**$39,500 We need to sell NOW!**
