Boat History

Aira was purchased it in Hamble, UK, in February 2019 and participated in the 2019 ARC, sailing it to the British Virgin Islands. Since then, it has been actively sailed around the BVI, where the owners resided, and has been taken on holiday trips down the island chain. Every hurricane season, it has been hauled at Nanny Cay Boatyard. The owners have spared little expense on maintenance, as they've dedicated ample time to enjoying sailing aboard her. Unfortunately, a change in circumstances have prompted her sale.

Words from the seller

Aira is a lovely boat - perfect for Caribbean living, cruising and beyond. For her size she is incredibly roomy; in the cockpit, the galley/salon, master head and especially the aft cabin. She sails really nicely, fast and responsive upwind, and loves to surf swells downwind while being very manageable with a deep keel and rudder. We would happily take her on further and find her very easy and safe to manage as a couple on long passages with her well thought-out design and Selden in-mast furling which has never given us any trouble.
