Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff went overboard at the Volvo Ocean Race as the PUMA racing boat made its final lap before departing to Lisbon and the start of the next leg of the race. Whenever the race boast set sail for a new city, celebrities, sponsor and local officials known as “jumpers” are invited on board. The tradition requires the guests plunge into the water before the vessels get too far off shore.
The Volvo Ocean Race took its only North American stop in Miami this month after completing leg 6 of the race. The world’s oldest and toughest race will take six teams nine months and cover over 39,000 nautical miles through the planet’s most treacherous oceans. The 11 man teams will only make 10 stops in 10 countries.
After the Volvo Ocean Race made its stop in Miami after leg 6 are you overboard for a majestic sail boat? Atlantic Yacht and Ship has the sail boat to make you want to take that jump. “Tudo Bem” is a 50′ Gulfstar CSY 50 located in Lighthouse Point, FL. The Gulfstar 50 was one of Vince Lazzara’s most successful designs, and built in the late 80’s was the beneficiary of a vast amount of experience building fiberglass boats. In 1987 when “Tudo Bem” was built, Gulfstar Yachts was at the peak of their success and considered one of the premier US builders of fine yachts.
Having been owned by an experienced Yachtsman for the past twelve years, “Tudo Bem” has been consistently maintained and upgraded. The saloon is very spacious with ample natural light streaming in on the U shaped seating area with removable dining table and a large settee. The private master stateroom features an athwart ships queen sized berth and private head and shower. The VIP stateroom has an oversized V berth with filler to make a very comfortable double berth with private access to the guest head and shower. The guest stateroom is located aft to starboard in the main cabin; this cabin doubles as the nav station and has over/under berths. With a new 110 hp Yanmar diesel, boom furling mainsail, roller furling headsail, and updated electronics and interior appointments, this yacht is truly one of a kind.
Atlantic Yacht has several sailboats for sale including this classic 1953 83′ Abeking & Rasmussen Centerboard Ketch. The “Sea Prince” sleeps 8 in 4 staterooms. Crew accommodations include 5 berths, head and shower with separate captain quarters. The Salon is bright and airy due to the large windows on the port and starboard sides. The entertainment center is located to starboard and includes a stereo system, weather fax machine and KVH satellite telephone. There are two settees, one to port and another to starboard with a coffee table. In the past 8 years Sea Prince has undergone 2 refits. In the fall of 2000 this vessel went through a major refit in Viareggio Italy, including a layout modification where an additional stateroom and a complete head were added. All other heads were totally renewed. The salon interior was revarnished and the two settees were replaced.
