1994 Beneteau Oceanis 440
(Moorings M445)

She rides like a steak house, but she handles like a bistro.  


Like most decisions, there are multiple factors leading to the choice we make.  For me, buying this boat has purpose:

  • to sail the oceans and cruise to all interesting places around the world that most of us won't ever see

  • sailboats get infinity mpg

  • sailboats are great for the Apocolypse

  • its a place to live in the bay - #RENT-HACK
