The boat is one of the legendary Santa Cruz 50s. These yachts were built for one thing - sailing fast in the ocean. She has a brand-new mast, custom-built by Buzz Ballenger with swept-back spreaders that incorporate everything learned about the Santa Cruz 50s during the past 30 years. She has recently been outfitted with a custom-built hard dodger, Furuno radar, charting GPS, and anchor windlass.
She is a truly magnificent yacht and is very responsive, she accelerates quickly and handles it beautifully. In heavy air, her deep keel (8 feet) keeps her well-balanced. In light air, she is sailing quickly, while other boats are standing still or forced to motor.
All of our trips are private; we don’t mix groups. There will only be your group and our crew on the boat.
There is a 3-hour minimum. Prices include tax but not a gratuity for the crew (usually 20% like a restaurant).
We sail out of Alameda, Sausalito, and San Francisco. There is a $300 docking fee to sail out of San Francisco. No docking fee for Alameda or Sausalito.
