Chardonnay III is a noble and strong sailboat. Since 2015, we have been sailing almost 5000 nautical miles along the Caribbean Sea.

Of really solid and strong hull, lead keel and mast rigged butt, it has a good tight angle and a cruising speed of 5 knots on average. Maneuvering in an agile and fast way, and with its draft of only 5´5 makes it ideal to explore between islands and canals.

20 HP Yanmar engine in excellent condition that can propel it at a speed of 5.5 knots at 2200 rpm with a consumption of 0.858 gal/ hour.

The rigging was completely renovated in September 2019 as was the cutless bearing.

It was made full bottom in April 2018. The deck is in excellent condition with good grip of the slip.

Easy to navigate by a single person, with the sheets and furling line near the helm wheel.

Chardonnay III has the necessary instruments for safe navigation with the charts of the entire US coast and West Caribbean coast loaded on the chart plotter located opposite the helmsman in addition to the magnetic compass with light.

Chardonnay III has solar panels that make it electrically self-sufficient, tanks and auxiliary fuel and water jerry jugs. A power inverter that supplies 110 VAC throughout the ship.

The auxiliary boat is in perfect condition with a 3.5 hp engine and cover to prevent deterioration. Lightweight and easy to get on and off by a person in the davit.

The interior space allows a couple to live comfortably with the possibility of accommodating four more people if they wish.

A very large cabin in the bow with fan, closet with chest of drawers, cupboards and many stowage places allow you to carry all the necessary things to live on board properly stowed.

Chardonnay III has all the necessary tools for maintenance and a large number of spare parts and extras, and is ready to go out now to continue sailing and explore the Caribbean.
