The Baba 35 (similar to Hans Christian and Tayana) is a well-designed and built cruising cutter which will take a couple, or, small family anywhere they want to go in comfort and safety (see review on http://www.bluewaterboats.org/baba-35). Black Sheep II spent most of her life on the northeast coast of the USA as a summer-only coastal cruiser. In 2010, after a major refit, she became a liveaboard, offshore passagemaker and embarked on a 3,600 mile voyage across the North Atlantic, direct to the Scottish Hebrides, from the Southern US. From there she sailed to northern Norway and spent the winter at 70N before sailing to Svalbard the following spring for a cruise to 80N. After spending time in Scandinavia and the Baltic she arrived in London, England where she now awaits new owners. She is ideally located for the start of a European cruise, or, while you’re waiting to set off, she could also be a very affordable, central London pied-à-terre.
Easily handled by a couple, her traditional full keel, cutter rig and heavy displacement provide excellent stability, balance and a comfortable motion at sea. Self-steering via a Monitor windvane, or, autopilot greatly assist a short-handed crew. Her interior layout works very well at sea with good handholds throughout, a galley you can wedge yourself into and safe, comfortable sea berths. When not sailing, the finely finished, top-quality teak interior can be enjoyed while entertaining guests at a table that easily seats six under a light-filled, opening butterfly hatch. The traditional, solid teak, wood joinery, bronze ports, custom bookshelves, comfortable fitted upholstery and cosy heat from the Refleks diesel heater provide a warm ambience.
