Built in France by a profesional carpenter but not by a boatyard.
Strong West system fiberglass epoxy on plywood, 42 x 21 feet, 3 feet draft, launched in 1994.
Beams are fasten by stainless mounting flange to put up an inboard engine. This modification was
submited to and validated by James Wharram himself. I was suspicious at first that the boat may lose the
wharram's particularity, and quality but no, and it avoids hearing the rope's squeaking.

From the owner +
When I bought her in 2004, she was coming back from a North Atlantic round.
I used her 4 years to make diving charter in Corsica (www.vagabondive.com), then I travel with and continue to make some charters.
All Mediterranée, Canaria, Africa, Capo Verde, Brazil, West caribes, and now in central américa, in Utila, one of the bahia island in Honduras.
This boat is an excellent travel boat, you can do what you want with and you feel safe, she's simple, strong, and good on sea, the nacelle doesn't hit the waves.
I'm selling she because it's now 18 years I'm living on boats and it's time for me to make a break and have to come back in France for personal reasons.
There is a lot of equipment in the boat, not new but fonctional
