Owner's Comments

My wife and I bought Jo-Lene in Florida 10 years ago with a view to spending our retirement winters in the sunshine of the Caribbean. We spent a holiday in Grenada a year before to check out a few facts – the advice we received was that nothing less than 40ft would be suitable as a “liveaboard”; ketch rig, centre cockpit with bimini and good ground tackle were also “must haves”, as was air conditioning  (the two a/c units are still installed but disconnected).

Jo-Lene in the Caribbean.

I had no experience of ocean sailing so, with a friend as skipper, six of us sailed from Regatta Point via Key West, Greater Inagua, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rica to Tortola. After a week relaxing and exploring the Virgin Islands, our friends returned to England and we sailed on to Grenada calling at the islands of Dominica and St Lucia on the way. 

After one winter my wife said that she was missing family and friends, but rather than selling Jo-Lene we decided to bring her back to England where I have enjoyed sailing her, frequently single handed, ever since.

Her long keel makes her ideal for long voyages, but is shallow enough to get through many inland waterways. 

There are so many places to stow supplies and gear that the owner has a stowage manual
