One of the finest blue water cruisers, the Mayflower class has sailed the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans as well as the Caribbean and Gulf Of Mexico.


Located in the beautiful Bahía de Banderas (Banderas Bay) of Puerta Vallarta Mexico, the sailboat - el velero has provided endless hours of sailing pleasure.  A skilled captain will be able to throw up five sails at one time. 


With its 6' 5" ceilings, the Oriana is large enough as a prime candidate for those looking to live-aboard in most ports in the world.


The current owner, like all good captains, has maintained her beauty and structure, including a full refinishing and repainting of her hull in 2016.  When moored, the external teak trim is covered with blue sunbrella.

PLEASE NOTE - the teak deck has finally given out.  This past March, all teak decking has been pulled up and replaced with two layers of fiberglass.  A third layer of coating has been placed which includes a grit material for sure footing.
