***** Location is Roatan, Bay Islands, Western Caribbean *******
originally a freshwater yacht, based in Maryland (USA) and hauled out each
winter. She has always been privately owned, never raced or chartered. As the best example of this classic blue water yacht available at the
time, she was purchased in 2014 and sailed to where she lived in the Caribbean. The summary of
the survey at that time was ‘This vessel was found to be in VERY GOOD
overall condition & has had good maintenance’.
Now that I have a young child I have moved back to Europe and
Hummingbird is not getting the use she deserves so is sadly up for sale.
She can sail
with large groups (ten in comfort) but is easily manageable by two people with
her furling Genoa and in-mast furling mainsail controlled from the cockpit. She also has other aids such as an autopilot
and an electric windlass for the anchor.
She has a reliable inboard Perkins Diesel engine (shaft drive), and an
electronics suite that includes Raymarine speed/depth displays on her two helms
and a Garmin GPS751 colour chart plotter.
For longer voyages or holidays, she is fitted with reverse cycle air
conditioning (can provide chill or heat) and pressurised cold and hot water (heated
by electric or heat exchange from the engine).
She has a TV and an audio system (speakers in cockpit and salon). Sale
includes an inflatable tender with 8hp outboard, all cooking utensils, bedding
and towels etc. so she is ready for her next adventure.

beaches in the world by TripAdvisor. It’s on one of the world’s largest reefs,
with an abundance of sea life making it one of the best sailing and diving
destinations, and a popular stopover for both cruise liners and yachts. Roatan
is easily accessible from Europe or the US via airports such as Miami and Houston. Hummingbird is on a sheltered (hurricane
safe) mooring, where she is regularly aired, bilges checked, engine run,

Antigua, USA, Europe) and use her as a live-aboard/holiday home or you could
