Additional Comments

The owner builder is an experienced marine engineer and has built several steel boats. He wanted a tough, practical craft for blue water cruising with good living space aboard and Nostromo has fulfilled this dream. He has sailed over 47,000 miles in her without a moment's worry, sometimes in the very worst weather conditions. Over the last 20 years he has sailed the North Atlantic from the Baltic to Venezuela and most countries in between and is only now selling as he wishes to downsize and cruise locally. Nostromo would suit those with unlimited horizons but a limited budget as she is priced to sell at a fraction of her replacement cost.
