New York 36
About the Boat
This is a fast (for its time), fractional rigged (easy winching!), dry boat with accommodation for two couples or 8 crew! There is a big V-berth forward and enormous double art of the dinette.
The hi tech tape drive furling jib has just been joined by a North 3DL try-radial main - even going to windward should be pleasant!
We did the trip from Porto Vallarta to La Paz before the refit. Dockwise delivered to BC and we have been exploring here since.
The boat has a great galley and work space in the centre of the boat. It has a good dinette below and a cockpit table for 6 in a full enclosure.
We have refrigeration, propane stove and diesel heat. Pressure water system includes heating by the engine or the heater for hot showers. Two 20 gallon tanks mean that brief showers will allow 4-6 days before refills.
The engine is a new Volvo 30 driving a kiwi prop for 6 knots at 2k rpm and next to no fuel use?
Solar panels charge 2 6V deep cycle house batteries and the starting battery. Alongside, a smart charger is built into the 110V circuit (which also heats the water). There is a 110V inverter and coffee grinder etc.
The huge cockpit works well with tiller steering (auto helm available). The large integrated nav system is easily viewed from the steering position and can be manipulated via wifi from somewhere else. The system includes chart plotter, radar and AIS.
We have now added an electric windlass and a new Rocna anchor.
The enclosure can be complete when motoring or a large dodger and enclosed Bimini when sailing. It really makes a difference on full sun days and when the weather is miserable. The enclosure can be clear panels or shade cloth!

About the location
Huge protected cruising area with lots of islands and fjords. Lots of marina options and easy to find hideaway spots as well.
Access to famed "Gulf Islands", Princess Louisa inlet and to Desolation Sound.
We swam in 24 Celsius last year and found 30+ a couple of years ago.
Scenery is amazing- a great sail with mountains all around in the distance.
