43' Westsail Sloop 1977



St Petersburg, Florida

" Hiatus" is an extremely well-found inshore or offshore cruiser. She was significantly upgraded in 2012 for what was to be an extended worldwide cruise and she is ready to go with new owners.

The cockpit is aft and has a new dodger and bimini. There is a complete suite of Raymarine instrumentation at the helm on a stainless steel bow, rebuilt compass, calibrated in 2012.

The primary winches are electric, Lewmar Ocean 50's, which are also used to hoist the AB 3.6 (12') with Eurohelm and 30 hp. electric start, Tohatsu power tilt outboard motor up on the stainless steel Well's Marine arch/ davits.

Photovoltaic solar panels totaling 420 watts are mounted on the arch and provide power to the house bank (880 amp.hrs.) through a Morningstar MPPT controller. With the Spectra 180 gpd water maker, a couple could cruise almost indefinitely.
