Mary Ann is berthed in French Polynesia - best trade wind sailing grounds on the planet: one cyclone for every 22 in the Caribbean, 1 tourists for every 27 in the Caribbean, uncrowded anchorages, healthy coral, excellent health care, friendly people, three distinct types of island groups, good infrastructure for yachts, etc. Mary Ann has her own website www.svmaryannii.com, which has many pics, reviews, discussion of why French Polynesia is the world's best cruising ground, details of her circumnavigation, her spares, replacement cost etc. Mary Ann has been part of the family for 31 years, we've circumnavigated together but now health issues have led to looking for someone who wants a sound, reliable, well loved and well looked after world cruiser.
Mary Ann is a typical factory layout with galley, dinette table and head on the port side. The dinette table makes into a double bed for guests. On the starboard side the upper sea berth sleeps one as does the lower sea berth (both have lee clothes.). She was professionally reupholstered in 2010 with new foam and coverings which remain in excellent condition. The teak and mahogany is varnished except the ceiling which is covered in off-white Formica to lighten the salon. The focastle has a generous double berth on port with a large storage locker to starboard. Teak and Holley floors. There are two hanging lockers. She was built with additional cabinet over the hanging locker on the starboard side. The 10 bronze opening ports, two reversible hatches provide good ventilation. She also has 4 fans. Of course Westsails are known for their "Tardis like" storage capacity.
Hull and Deck:
Newly painted hull (professionally sprayed 4 coats epoxy primer, 4 coats linear polyurethane)
New teak cap rails -- 2" thick
New teak rub rails 2" thick
Newly painted topsides (lp)
Mary Ann's hull just got painted in Dec 2017 and she looks stunning! This only reinforced her image as the best looking boat in the anchorage. Her topside were painted with linear polyurethane in 2017 except the top deck which got Kiwigrip.
Mary Ann still has at least a ½" of teak on her decks. All seems well sealed and no missing plugs. The side decks (lowest area) were removed, fiberglass was epoxied over, and the teak was then reset in polysulfide with no fasteners. Front hatch is now a heavy duty Bomar and the large Salon hatch is Gogeot.

Hawse pipes were all replaced with heavy cast bronze to replace the failing spun brass originals.
