1978 Island Trader 41

Grenada W.I., Grenada

£34,298

The Island Trader 41 - is a classic bluewater ketch, with a wave slicing clipper bow and sheer lines designed by William Garden. As with many boats made in Taiwan she is extremely well built, and nicely accented with plenty of teak above and below decks. Originally named La Boatique, she spent the first 19 years sailing in the fresh water of the Great Lakes. She has since sailed to New Zealand, been shipped back to Florida and sailed extensively up and down the East Caribbean for the past 14 years. Considered a very desirable live-aboard cruising boat, she is spacious and comfortable. Magus has been meticulously looked after over the years - she is fully equipped and ready to go - conveniently located in the Caribbean.
