Blue Pearl (sold)

We are selling our beloved Blue Pearl
Why !?!?

short answer : Because we are not done yet ! 😉

As we are ready for the next phase in our adventure we are selling our much beloved and trusted Beneteau Clipper Oceanis 473 ‘Blue Pearl’

We honestly believe this has to be one of the best outfitted cruising liveaboard boats around which we bought in 2016 , refitted and sailed from the Med across the Atlantic from Cape Verdes to French Gyana and through the Caribbean and now in Panama

Blue Pearl has not given us any major issues over the last 40 months and I do not expect to have any issues . Normal maintenance is kept up as we live on our boat sailing oceans and we can’t afford not to keep her in great shape, we are currently in Panama but will make our way back to the east Carib (St Martin) by November – December 2020

So , here are some of the specs and inventory
