Mojito has just returned to the U.S. from Turkey. She has been voyaged and lived on by a family, and is totally equipped for serious offshore voyaging and comfortable on the anchor living. She is also, thank goodness, in excellent condition and has been cared for and continually upgraded by her fastidious owner. I was on her in Feb, 2013, after her arrival from Turkey, and shot a walk through video that can be found on our TMC website.
This St. Francis was custom made in 2004 and sailed from South Africa to George Town in the Bahamas by the first owners who dropped the hook and never, ever left. They basically used her as a floating condo for four years. The seller is the second owner, and when he bought her in 2008, there were 500 hours on the engines and the majority of that was used to charge batteries and heat water, seriously. The sails were in factory new condition, the boat still smelled of fiberglass like it just left the factory.
In March 2008 she sailed through the Bahamas, over to Riviera Beach, Florida and was equipped with all new Raymarine Nav equipment, water maker, batteries etc at Cracker Boy Marina in 2008. The seller also had a custom Rub Rail installed by Alan Ray, that cost $5,000, but was absolutely necessary for this boat as that is the weak spot of the St. Francis 44. Each year she spent Hurricane Season in Rio Dulce.
In 2010 the current owner sailed her back to Florida and had additional items installed at Just Catamarans in Ft. Lauderdale, FL (good work, not cheap spent US$55,000). New bottom paint and barrier coat, reverse cycle A/C, TV/DVD with lots of current DVDs, 5.0 KVA Isolation transformer, six new Trojan batteries (660AH), one elect head & one manual, custom fiberglass Hard Top, wrap around Spray Shield & Privacy Shades, serviced the winches, added check valves to the bilge pumps, new wind generator, upgraded to 50A shore power, Raymarine AIS, new Raymarine mast head Wind indicator etc. The sails were inspected by Nance and Underwood in Ft. Lauderdale and the installed blocks in the reefing points to avoid chafe on long passaged and ease reefing. She then was sailed to Turkey and the Med to enjoy for the past two years, but spent most of last year on the hard. She really is clean as a whistle. Please see our recent video.
This boat is fast and a pleasure to sail. She can easily be handled by two persons. She is literally ready for someone to bring their clothes and sail off, there is a complete tool kit and loads of very expensive spares (US$5,000) already aboard in addition to all the equipment posted above. The smart buyer will recognize this.
