|Our amazing cruise is ending at the end of this year and we will be returning the US to go back to work.
Beautiful Blue Hull IP 485 that is spectacularly equipped with a recent refit including rigging. For those comparing the larger IPs, one of the biggest distinguishing factors of the 485 is the tankage. 340 gallons of water and 300 gallons of diesel, makes a big difference when cruising in remote locations.
Currently cruising in French Polynesia, we will be shipping her via Dockwise Yacht Transport to Ensenada, MX departing Papeete Jan 2020, arriving Ensenada Feb 2020. The price includes the transport, the spot has been reserved and paid for. We will bring her back to Southern California to shine and polish and put on the market with a broker.
This price is the pre-broker price, it will be listed with a broker upon arrival to the US at a higher price.
You can take delivery in French Polynesia if you like. The DYT ship will be continuing on to Ft Lauderdale, FL and shipping can probably be arranged fairly easily.
