Words from the current Owner:
“ I had Northern Lights professional built in a quality shipyard to start my dream to cruise around the world. Since I was betting my life on her I had her built strong and she has served me well in some serious ocean waves to Central America, the Panama Canal. She has a cruising range of 5000 Miles. I did get as far as South America but then chickened out based on my age (70...I should have left for the world cruise at 60 or so !).
The boat has been a labour of love and a personal journey of discovery of my own self confidence and the ocean world. I would dearly love to have someone pick up my dream and take her around the globe...she will do it ...can you ? I will sell her but my heart will be with her and I will not be far away to help anyone who takes her and loves her as I do. I guess dreams don’t die, only the dreamer...”
