vShe is the sisterof Tamata. Where Tamata had a bowsprit, Bluewater had her lines carried forward to give her more waterline and more internal volume which translates into more reserve buoyancy, deck space and carrying capacity.
Bluewater is cutter rigged, and flush decked forward of the mast. She has a LOA of 36 feet and a beam of 12.5 feet. She drafts just over 6 feet. Constructed out of 3/16 steel. She carries 100 gallons of diesel fuel and 110 gallons of fresh water in tanks built into her keel.
Bluewater‘s pedigree precedes her. The first owner was a close friend of Bernard Montessier and their ideas of simplicity, durability and ease of use are evident through out the boat. It will be clear from the first inspection that she is built to cross oceans in comfort and style.
