Heritage West Indies - New arrival

The perfect BIG center cockpit, shoal draft cruising sailboat.



S/V Vicky was built by Charlie Morgan's Heritage Yacht company in 1978. She is a heavy duty center cockpit cruiser that performs beautifully in all kinds of weather. With up to 1" thicknesses of the fiberglass the boat is built like a tank but will cruise at 8Kts to 10Kts. The center cockpit design allows for two roomy staterooms, a large saloon with galley, a good sized engine room and loads of storage space. The roomy forward V-berth with a head with shower sleeps two adults. The saloon with a U-shaped settee that converts into a queen size bed and a pilot berth will sleep three adults.  Nav station surface with full chart storage under. The large aft owner's cabin with a queen size bed and a head with shower will sleep two adults. Current owner has spent three years to upgrade and renew many of the boat's features. Here are some of the details on this beautiful piece of maritime heritage:
