Journey's of the Moonlight Flit


Incredibly strong and fast this boat has made two single handed circumnavigation by all five southern capes. One of these was a nonstop solo circumnavigation and the other was made from east to west around Cape Horn. The boat has a rich history and is one of the most well proven sailing yachts available on the market today. All systems have been upgraded as of 2002. Recently readied for a trip to southern Chile; the Flit is in excellent ocean ready condition.
