Re: Family of 4+2 on a Wauquiez Amphitrite

Congrats on the purchase. My family has had a few Wauquiez models and absolutely loved them.

Re: Family of 4+2 on a Wauquiez Amphitrite

We looked at her about 5 months ago. Nice boat, needs a few things but all in all nice. They said the owner was ready to sell so I hope you got her bought for a good price!

Re: Family of 4+2 on a Wauquiez Amphitrite

Sorry to not have chimed in sooner haven't been on the forum much over the past 3 years. Our family of 4 live aboard our Amphitrite now for just over 3 years. Based in the BVI for past 2 years but still actively cruising. Weve been through pretty much every system on the boat so feel free to message with any specifics. We very much still adore the boat. Just sailed 500 miles offshore to spend a week in Dominica. She is a lovely sea boat and we haven't found her light air performance to be an issue however we cruise the Caribbean where we typically have breeze. Were saving our pennies to replace the sails this fall. We sailed originally from Annapolis to the BVI in 2012, spent 2012-2013 cruising eastern caribbean as far south as Grenada. Settled in the BVI working and kids just transitioning into local schools. Daughter (10) has V-berth, son (12) walk through cabin. We also travel with a cat and 2 Optimist dinghies as kids are active racing here. Best of luck with your new boat and as mentioned don't hesitate to reach out if I can be of help.

Re: Family of 4+2 on a Wauquiez Amphitrite

Every time I spot an Amphitrite I pause and look and I find I would like one too.

There are two versions, one is proper pilot house.

Re: Family of 4+2 on a Wauquiez Amphitrite

We are up in Anacortes getting the rig redone, the main sail shortened at the top about 10 in with the corresponding boom lift. We had the rudder rebuilt (delamed), another bilge pump put in, straightened out the 12v, etc, etc. last Friday the family moved aboard in Edmonds, and the trip North was benign. So now the unpacking begins, slowly the cabins are being de cluttered, and we add more things to the list.

Unfortunately when having the fuel tank cleaned out, large chunks of painted epoxy were flaking off the inside of the tank (FRP). After moving the boat, we found a sheen of fuel in the dry bilge under the tank. Hopefully we didn't uncover a prior fix...
