If you, or someone you know, is looking for a world-class cruising sailboat, look no further.  S/V Seayanika was custom built by a U.S. Coast Guard registered boat builder, for a world circumnavigation, and has every amenity and safety feature anyone could ask for in a long-range cruiser.  She is a proven, solidly built yacht, has already crossed the Pacific and cruised in the southern latitudes for over 2 years and is capable of 200+ mile days under power or sail.

What are the ADVANTAGES of buying a custom built boat over a production model?  Production boat builders are (rightfully) in the business to make a profit.  To do so they either have raise the sales price astronomically high, or cut corners and costs where you are least likely to look.  That boat you saw at the boat show may have nice upholstery and shiny brightwork, but how was she put together?  Can the fuel tanks, systems and equipment be repaired or removed and replaced without tearing up the interior?  Is there sufficient space in the engine compartment to do not only periodic maintenance but major work as well? Was the entire hull insulated against weather extremes and to prohibit the growth of mold and mildew.  Are there redundant systems?  Was she purpose-built for safety and durability, or for show?  These are just a few of the reasons why a prudent sailor might consider a well built custom yacht instead.

Since Seayanika's designer/builder was constructing her as his own personal cruising yacht, no expense was spared in building and equipping her with only the safest, best and long-lasting materials and equipment.  And then he added luxury items only found in the very highest priced and cruise equipped yachts; bow thruster, pilot house, water maker, washer/dryer, powerful generator, icemaker, trash compactor, wind generator, solar panels, and more storage than any other boat it's size.  (Per Douglas Emley, Marine Surveyor, San Diego....."The vessel has been constructed to ABYC, MFPA and CFR standards with quality, marine-grade materials.  She is exceptionally well-equipped for a vessel of her size and type.") 
Just peruse the following long list of equipment and amenities, then search the Internet for any world cruising boat on the market.  You will find that S/V Seayanika is the best equipped, best constructed, most well thought out and least expensive yacht available, by hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Originally priced at $395k, I am starting the eBay bidding at $250k.
