General Description

Design, overview, systems, cruising history
SKOL is a solid fiberglass, 58,000 lb, ocean-going vessel. Yet she is at home and maneuvers easily in harbors and waterways. With her 64 ft. mast height and 6 ft 6 in draft SKOL is able to navigate the US Intercoastal Waterways, including being able to pass under the ICW 65 ft fixed bridges. Her present owners have made a number of blue-water passages on SKOL including up and down the US East Coast, to and from the Caribbean and island hopping through much of the Eastern and Western Caribbean. SKOL's home is in the NW Caribbean, in the beautiful and peaceful Rio Dulce area of Guatemala. For more information on Guatemala and the Rio Dulce area contact the listing broker.

With SKOL'S 58,000 lb displacement, 14,000 lb ballast, full length keel, large attached rudder and bow thruster, she is stable and maneuverable inshore and offshore. The Sidepower bow thruster greatly enhances maneuverability in tight quarters. With her 90 HP Ford Lehman diesel she is maneuverable at 1200 rpm. Under engine alone at 1800 rpm she makes about 7 kts. Under sail with her very flexible ketch/cutter rig, and Liesureful and Schaefer furling systems, her sail power and helm pressure can be finely balanced. Under sail power only, with 5-10 kts of wind she is underway. With 15-20 kts of wind she will generally makes 6-7 kts. Maximum speed with 20 kts of wind or more is around 8 to 9 kts.

SKOL is built and equipped to be a long term live-aboard cruiser. She is adequately powered by sail or engine or both. Her engine and generator are fuel efficient. She has dual electrical generation systems, dual refrigeration systems, and dual waste handling systems, a water-maker and a washer/dryer and a well equipped workshop. These helpful and reliable systems combine to allow for months of independent cruising and living aboard. The present owners typically provision the boat in January for three to 2-3 months, leave their marina in the Rio Dulce, then cruise the Caribbean for 5 months and return to the the Rio Dulce in June.

Companionway Entrance Entering from the companionway there is a curved stairway into the pilothouse with a wet locker outboard to starboard. Immediately apparent upon stepping below decks is the custom teak joinery, marble surfaces, parkay floor, and oriental carpeting. Next one notices the array of large windows surrounding the pilothouse and the substantial headroom which ranges from 6 ft. 2" to 6 ft. 6 in. throughout the boat. Pilothouse with 270 degree visability The pilothouse affords excellent weather protection, 270 degree visibility, comfortable living space and control of the ships major systems, (engine, steering, navigation and communications). The pilothouse is surrounded by eight large clear windows, two facing forward and three facing each side, port and starboard. The galley is to port. The galley includes two built-in front access refrigerators and a top access freezer (all three units have refrigerant holding plates, and all three are powered by an either an engine driven compressor or a 120 VAC compressor). In addition there are a Force 10 3 burner propane stove with oven and broiler, marble counter tops, a Sharp 800 Watt microwave, and two nicely polished, deep stainless steel sinks with hot and cold pressure water.
