Remarks

A strong, beautiful, and classic Sparkman & Stephens sailing yacht, Sea Angel is a unique world cruiser.  Sea Angel (Sparkman & Stephens design number 2455), built at Stephens Marine in California, was one of the groundbreaking motorsailer ketches designed in the 1980's.  With accommodations for 6 - 8 owners and guests, and 4 - 6 crew, she can handle a large family and many guests with ease.

In 2011, her rig was modernized to employ a carbon fiber "pocket boom".   With the hydraulic halyard winch, raising and lowering the main is almost effortless.  This improvement allowed for a fully battened mainsail and a reduction of weight aloft, while eliminating the chance of a fouled in-mast mainsail.  Moreover, her sailing characteristics were greatly improved by this upgrade in mainsail size and shape.

In recent months, her systems have been thoroughly checked, cosmetics upgraded, and equipment rebuilt or replaced - all in an effort to prepare her for her new owner.  She is ready to leave on her next adventure!
