Westsail 28 In Tahiti

Colleen Caldwell and Brian Crystal

Alex D. of www.projectbluesphere.com is currently putting out feelers for selling his 28-footer currently in Tahiti, but is sounds like he might be willing to deliver to Australia or New Zealand. I let him know about this message board, but thought I'd help him out by posting.
You can find his email address on the projectblueshpere.com website.

Namaste is a full keeled pocket cruiser capable of sailing any ocean. She went through a major refit in 2003 and received a new rudder and bowsprit. The mast was also removed and rewired along with much of the boat. All of the thru-hulls are new and were replaced in 2003. She is ready to cruise any ocean and is a joy at sea.
