s/v 'Fox', a 2005 Melvin and Morelli design. Registered in Canada. Fully bluewater ready. 4 cabin version.

'Fox' is a beautiful and fast catamaran. She was 4 years in charter (first 4 years) and after that, cruisers took care of her and improved her a lot. My wife and I bought this catamaran with the intention of doing a second circumnavigation, and we rigged the boat accordingly.

'Fox' has SSB, AIS transponder+silent, IridiumGO! for communication. There are tools, spares, dive gear/tank, extra fluids for everything, a spare windlass, epoxy repair materials, underwater repair kit, spare anchor with rode…everything you might need in an uninhabited Polynesian atoll.

The spinnaker set up is very easy and light to handle. We sailed down as far as Ecuador and then did some soul-searching (that we should have done earlier…haha) and decided that at our ages we did not want to commit to another 10 year cruise…therefore someone’s going to get a great deal…
