The 56 is a proven performer, with many ocean crossing and circumnavigations to her credit. She is has had class wins in the ARC and has also won Cruising Class 1 at Antigua Sailing Week, beating a number of more serious racing yachts. She is a superb sea boat and remains very well regarded by all her fortunate owners.
Raya is a 2001 example , hull number 22, with the popular light oak joinery giving a bright and spacious feel below decks, where she sleeps six in three cabins. Her master cabin has been extended to include an office space, larger head and better access to the engine room. Raya is easy to handle with push button hydraulic furling to her mainsail, genoa and staysail. Although an unashamed ocean cruiser, Raya is a fast yacht, having won her class in the ARC 2015 finishing 12th overall. She has benefitted from a comprehensive refit before embarking on her latest circumnavigation, so would make an excellent buy for anyone planning a similar adventure.
