Introducing SY Vesta, this special 2004 Passport 470 center cockpit sailing yacht is a blue water sailboat built with the ability to circumnavigate the world. SY Vesta has had only 2 owners, the first owners built this vessel with Passport in 2004, then sold it to the current owners in 2011. She has been a home and vehicle to explore the US Atlantic coast from Maine to the Florida Keys, the Bahama Islands, Mexico, the Western Caribbean – Belize, Guatemala and the Bay Islands of Honduras. After 12 years of cruising the waterways with many exciting adventures, her owners are offering her to another cruiser to enjoy as they are moving on to different adventures as they grow older.

She has two 140-watt Kyocera solar panels on top of stainless-steel Kato Marine davits, a wind vane Air Breeze Ocean series with controller and the ability to make water with a Cruise RO 30 gal/hr. water maker (installed 2019).
