Across the North Atlantic
by: John Richards

A few years ago I sailed from Beaufort North Carolina to the Azores on this boat.
My experience was enhanced by the feeling of safety and comfort afforded by the centre cockpit and heavy displacement.
Also the fact that the present owners are very hands on and keep the vessel in excellent cruising condition.

So comfortable at sea
by: Julia

I just love this yacht. I have sailed on her for several thousand miles, done 2 Atlantic crossings and several trips up and down the East coast of USA, from Florida to Nova Scotia.
The attraction for me is the comfort on board, especially on passage. Never once have I felt unsafe on her even during a really rough passage from Beaufort NC to Horta surfing downwind under staysail only. It's so sad that we have to sell her but we now need to downsize and accept that we are not young anymore.
Daq Attack has many more years of active sailing in her. Buy her and I promise you, you will never regret it!
