 This is an opportunity to fly to La Paz, take delivery of this exceptional yacht and not have to sail all the way down the Pacific Coast to reach this destination from which you can sail anywhere in the Pacific or the World.

C'est La Vie is a one owner yacht which was customized in conjunction with Gerry Douglas, naval architect, and primary designer of the 470.  There is not another 470 like this on the market.  The owner was a very well seasoned yachtsman who knew what made sense in a blue water cruiser.

She is a two cabin yacht with owner stateroom and head aft- second stateroom forward with a second head, plus a generous workroom aft to port,featuring the following: storage area, locker, tool room and scuba storage area with compressor.

She is equipped with the following and many more upgrades too numerous to mention:

Boom furling main 

Wing keel with just under 6 foot draft for shallow water entry

135% Furling head sail by Carol Hasse, including foam luff and hand stitched corners, which may be reefed  to 90 % with proper shape

90 % jib for heavy weather and ease of handeling

Asymmetrical spinnaker with sock for ease of downwind sailing

Stay sail on detachable stay for heavy weather and double head sail for upwind performance

165 gallons of factory installed  fuel tanks

Water maker by Spectra- 14 gpm

Cold plate refrigerator and freezer by Sea Frost

Generator by Fisher Panda 6.5 with sound shield

350 watts of solar panels

Large workshop/storage area with built-in dive compressor

4 inch in diameter Stainless radar tower with outboard motor lift

Stainless steel rails surround the cockpit area rather than life lines for protection and utility. Also stainless steel mast pulpits provide safety when working on deck at the mast.

Hard top dodger with bimini , high end windows and detachable panels to enclose cockpit

2 wheels in cockpit made one size larger for ease of steering

48 mile range radar with color 10 inch monitor at nav. station and a 7 inch repeater at cockpit

Updated chart plotter at nav. station and cockpit

AIS monitor incoming and outgoing

Monitor wind vane swings out  for ease of entry from water

Autoprop 3 blade variable pitch for better performance and fuel efficiency with low drag

Heating and air conditioning by Marine Air

Electrical service can be plugged into 110 volt in US waters or 240 overseas

New Magnum 2800 inverter/charger ready to be installed in November 2017

Large T V which may be angled to view from cabin or cockpit

ICOM 710 single side band/ ham radio with Pactor III modum for sailmail and winlinks

$20,000 invested in custom cabin cabinetry and lockers in custom  storage area/workshop

This is a must see yacht for the offshore sailor.  She is ready to sail safely and with reasonable comfort  around the world. This prudent, experienced yachtsman thought of all contingencies when participating in the design and commissioning of this ocean going yacht. She has already sailed to New Zealand/Australia and back in addition to Pacific Coastal cruising with layovers in Mexico. Amazingly, this was accomplished mainly  by sailing double handed with his wife as crew.
