I have owned "Cacique" pronounced “Ka-seek” for 11 years now and she has had 4 owners before me.
I’ve found her an absolute delight to sail, easily sails in a straight line with a bit of sail trimming. She is currently coded for skippered charter work Cat1 (up to 60 miles offshore), so all safety equipment is up to date, except for the life-raft (not included).
She has a remarkable history of successful passage making living up to the proud Vancouver reputation, with 3 Atlantic crossings and 1 circumnavigation under her belt.
Following this she has undergone a major refit in 2007 updates include, hull peeled and Gelsheild re applied, everything removed or re-furbished.
Now wanting to up size to a bigger Vancouver.
Year 2014 MCA for Charter survey available by request.
All previous Bills Of Sale, the Builders Certificates and VAT receipt are available.
