Designed by S.C Huntingford and built by Cooper Enterprises Ltd in Port Coquitlam "Little Voices" is a fully enclosed centre cockpit, cutter rigged, motor-sailer ideal for exploring the Pacific North West in all weathers.
Large windows in the salon avoid that claustrophobic feel many find in sailboats, while the long ballasted keel and mainsail can help to reduce the rolling motion that inflicts trawler yachts and keeps so many waiting in port. She possesses plenty of storage, and a gentle seagoing manner which makes her easy to single hand. Three heating systems have helped ensure the BC winter is held at bay and made year round cruising a pleasure.
The yacht has been used by the current owners for over 15 years to explore local waters including a circumvention of Vancouver Island. She has been well maintained as can be evidenced by the meticulous records and would make a very comfortable live aboard or long range cruiser.
