I've never seen such a large price reduction as this on 25 May, 2017 -- what was at $149,500 is now available for immediate sale at $99,500!! The first price was a good price for all that this Formosa offers, and now it is a pure STEAL of a deal. Call, write, arrive soon -- your Formosa is here -- get here first.
September 2017 update: Sad for the seller, GOOD for you -- the bowsprit was discovered to have a rotten center -- the seller will assume replacement costs and aerobics. There are savings to be had if you want to jump into this project, otherwise continue your interest with this Formosa knowing the bowsprit will be excellent again soon!
Located in hurricane-free tropical Rio Dulce, this Formosa 51 is already where you want to be cruising! Awaiting your command and new horizons is this recently refit, ready to go (soon), globe-trotting passagemaker, with all the salty style points awarded! Every glance sees this fully capable ketch tugging at the mooring lines, wanting for hoisted sails and more miles of smiles.
The Formosa 51 has to be one of the most thought about designs through the years as both new and experienced cruisers dream of their ideal cruising boat, and for good reason! Large, heavy monohulls like this are far more comfortable than the alternatives, translating to happy and well-rested people enjoying their time aboard! Put yourself in that picture, and write/call for more information today!
**Note: We now have TWO Formosa 51s available on the Rio for you to choose from, each of them an excellent choice depending only on what you wish for!
Your Formosa is conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! After being safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
