Sail catamaran for sale
1994 St. Francis 44 Mark II (44ft)

The current owner has owned Birdwing for 17 years. He bought her from the original owner in Cape Town, South Africa where they did two Cape Town to Rio races. He kept Birdwing in St Vincent for several years, but it was expensive and difficult to fly there, so he sailed on to Guatemala’s Rio Dulce, where she has been for the past ten years. The Rio is a fabulous place to keep a yacht because the labor rates are very low and there is excellent infrastructure to get all parts and services easily and professionally. Due to an inability to find a partner who desires to share the cruising life with him, and having too many other projects to attend to; with sadness, he must confess that he can no longer properly care for Birdwing, and must pass the torch
