The following is posted on Yachtworld. I would very much appreciate opinions on this boat. We own a Jeanneau
SO 37. We will live aboard a larger boat and "commute" from Ft Lauderdale to Martha's Vineyard
winters/summers using the ICW
necessary - otherwise coastal cruising.
"The Stevens 53 is a good balance of safety
, comfort and style in a shorthanded, long-range cruising yacht. Designed by Robert H. Perry N.A. in collaboration with the Stevens Design Team, this model incorporates over 200 years of combined single-handed cruising, racing
and live aboard experience with the latest innovations in technology and performance, and over 325 vessels designed and built with the Stevens name.
This is a perfect liveaboard
, comfortable and modern shorthanded cruiser, and great for the Bahamas
. Excellently maintained, "Bricardi" is ready for her new owner to enjoy."
