Downwind sailing is incredible.

Downwind sailing is incredible.


Do you dream of sailing away to a tropical island and snorkelling over colourful reefs?

We are offering a rare chance to own a really safe, stable and comfortable catamaran which has seen us travel from Africa, across the Indian Ocean, calling in at Chagos, Seychelles, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. From there we did a lot of cruising round Thailand and the Andaman Islands.

We sailed around Sumatra, climbed Krakatoa volcano, visited Borneo, Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Japan, then went north to the Aleutian islands, Alaska and the West Coast of USA, to El Salvador.

Gypsy Girl is a proven, open sea cruising catamaran.

She has been lovingly modified to improve performance and comfort, and is realistically priced at $98,000. Unfortunately, health issues have dictated that we stop sailing, so we are offering our beloved home to a new dreamer.
