Already located in the hurricane-free tropical paradise of Rio Dulce, you really owe it to yourself to fully consider this particular sailboat! AVALON -- This is one of those rare sailboats that speaks itself capable of ocean voyages at the toss of a coin -- ready, able, and willing! Designer William Garden drew plans for many other beautiful yachts such as Formosa, Vagabond, CT, Mariner, Sea Wolf, Hudson, etc. Pride of ownership shows with every glance at the beautiful exterior woodwork, and the salty style of this William Garden design earns a favored spot in any anchorage or marina.
This ketch offers a wonderful and seldom found blend of form and function, modern and traditional -- a sea-kindly design for happy, safe passages, with a bowthruster for ease of docking! Spend a minute aboard and you'll have a sudden but justifiable urge to toss the docklines and GO!

Your ideal cruising sailboat is already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! Safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala during hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico,Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
