Boat History

This St Francis 44 MK II was custom made in South Africa and sailed to Georgetown, Bahamas by the first owners who then dropped the anchor and used her as a floating condo for 4 years, putting 500 hours on the engines charging batteries and heating water.

The second owner purchased her in 2008 in Florida and equipped her with all new Raymarine electronics, watermaker, batteries and installed a custom rub rail.   She spent every hurricane season in Rio Dulce.  In 2010 they did an extensive $55K outfitting in preparation of an Atlantic voyage.  This included the custom hardtop bimini, full enclosure, Isolation transformer, wind generator, upgraded to 50A shore power, new bottom with barrier coat and bottom paint and serviced all systems. She then travelled to Turkey and the Med and back to Florida after completing their dream cruise.

The third owners purchased her in 2013 with 1400 hours on the engines and continued to update for comfortable cruising.   Additional captain seat added in cockpit, fresh awlgrip paint on deck, new sails, batteries, etc.   They cruised her for 5 years in the Bahamas and Eastern Caribbean using her during the winter months of January - March and storing her on the hard for the other 9 months. She had been maintained to a high standard and was listed for ale in Fort Pierce, FL.

The current owner since 2019 is very experienced having cruised between New England and the Southern cruising grounds on his prior yachts. With plans to extensively cruise the St Francis, he invested over $100K in upgrades for cruising safety and reliability including new standing rigging, running rigging, saildrives, full electronics package, trampoline, heads, (4) thru-hulls, (3) seacocks, new bottom paint, complete compound, wax, and detailing before sailing her north to Mystic, CT in the spring of 2020. He told me it was his fastest and most comfortable trip north ever. A change in life-plans requires him to take a break from sailing and he is now offering this St. Francis for sale.
