Custom 30' Racer / Cruiser / Livaboard (Ready to Go!)

Areyto is For Sale! Asking $34,000 as is, all equipment included. If you are interested in the boat we can negociate. Below are the specs on the boat. The boat and myself are currently in Grenada having just sailed south island hopping from St. Thomas! Amazing trip! The boat is ready to go and needs nothing. I'm looking to sell because I've fulfilled my dream of cruising the Caribbean and am looking to move back stateside. She has everything you need and nothing you don't for comfortable cruising. She is extremely fun to sail and comes with EVERYTHING you'll need to get going. I'm writing this while anchored off of St. Georges in Grenada using the custom built wifi antenna (similar to the wirie) which kept me in touch with friends and family all the way down through the islands.

Here is a link to some pictures:

1981 Velero 30 footer

US Documented Vessel
CSA rating

Originally built in Puerto Rico in the early 1980s. This boat is a fantastic, racer/cruiser/live aboard. The boat is a custom design and you won’t find another like her! I acquired her in the 2006 and almost EVERYTHING on the boat is new or rebuilt. A complete refit to take me cruising in the eastern Caribbean. I am now looking to “get out” and head back to the USA.

Some things that are new/replaced and the approximate dates the work was done. I have receipts for all the big ticket items and a manual for every piece of equipment on the vessel.

- All thru hulls replaced and all plumbing completely redone
- All 8 ports along the cabin sides were replaced with new
- Companion way was rebuilt
- All deck hardware was removed and Insignia white with Whisper grey Awlgrip was applied to the deck.

- Interior was completely gutted down to a few bulkheads and structural members. A new teak and holly sole was installed as well as all new cabinetry and a custom built in Adler barbour “cold machine” refrigerator.

- A completely new electrical system was installed. A 450 amp hour house bank and a starting battery. The only original wires on the boat are part of the engine wiring harness. Everything else is BRAND NEW. I also have an up to date wiring diagram should a problem arise.
- North 90% jib ordered

- Brand new Sparcraft mast, standing rigging, chainplates, and halyards replaced.
- Brand new Doyle mainsail and North 110% jib.
