"Shilo II" is a well-found, capable (cruised the Pacific) bluewater cruising yacht. She is set up for short-handed cruising in maximum safety and comfort. A bow thruster takes the drama out of docking. The ever-reliable 94hp Nissan diesel will power "Shilo II" through the chop. On deck, the hard dodger provides protection. The decks are wide and clear. Below deck, it is all about crew comfort with a delightful saloon, two private cabins, a huge galley and a nav station that will please any skipper. Comfort is enhanced by a diesel cabin heater. Shilo II represents a great opportunity for you to realize your dream and experience cruising under sail as it was meant to be.
