|This 1983 Wauquiez Pretorien 35, a French designed and built bluewater racer-cruiser, is now for sale.
The Wauquiez is known worldwide as a boat that is both fast and strong. The build quality is in the class of Hallberg Rassy and Island Packet and will suit those looking for security in superb offshore design and construction.
The Pretorien layout combines a cleanly designed, flush deck for easy manoeuvring under sail and very little exterior maintenance with a richly appointed, teak interior.
Fully equipped with sailing and cruising gear, this vessel is set up with the power systems and water maker to spend time at anchor and a forced air diesel heating system and a hot water heater to make off season sailing comfortable.
Set up for double handed ocean passages, she is easy to single hand or race with crew. From the low engine hours, to the spotless bilge, she is an excellent example of this coveted ocean design.
This boat was sailed here by a young Canadian couple who became well known and respected in cruising circles writing numerous cruising articles. They will correspond directly with the new owners to ensure a smooth and knowledgable handover.
This boat has been loved and will not disappoint those wanting to continue her adventure.
