About this Wauquiez Pretorien


The Wauquiez Pretorien is a capable bluewater cruising boat and capable of negotiating the ICW. "Belum" has proven herself through the years. She has a deep cockpit for protection and safety at sea and is outfitted for easy shorthanded sailing.

The Pretorien is a French-built cruiser-racer from Holman & Pye in the UK. It made its debut in 1979 and has steadily built a great reputation. The Wauquiez Company, which built the Pretorien, is known for producing some of the strongest and most capable offshore sailboats built and they look great under sail.

The trademarks of this classic boat include substantial stowage, roomy accommodations, and seaworthiness that comes from a quality build. Multiple around the world navigator and BOC competitor, Hal Roth, chose the Pretorien as his cruising boat and was quite happy with the choice for comfort and functionality. Many of his ideas are included in this boat.

"Belum" is a great example of a go-anywhere performance cruiser offering excellent value for the money.
