Hot Chocolate is a very strong ocean going shoal draft bermudan cutter, with a long shallow fixed keel and lifting centreboard. She is an American boat designed by an ex owner of Kadey Krogen yachts for his own live aboard use in the Caribbean. She has a GRP foam sandwich hull and fitted out below to a very high standard with a wonderful teak and holly interior. A RIB on davits with an o/b new in 2017 is included. She is ideal for Mediterranean cruising,very cool below with lots of ventilation including a dozen opening portholes and a full cockpit Bimini. Two large solar panels will run electrics including the fridge for days. The lift keel means you can often get into an anchorage, however crowded, by going closer to the shore and using the kedge anchor to hold her into any swell.
For personal reasons we now urgently need to sell our boat. In 13 years of shared ownership we have thoroughly explored the western Mediterranean. But now we must sell and so are making a big price reduction. Any reasonable offer considered. She really is a bargain for someone who wants a classic style boat in GRP, either as a live aboard or as family cruising.
