Cascade 42 Sloop
This Cascade 42 sloop rigged ocean-going cruiser is a documented vessel named "Born Free". Its previous owner, sailed "Born Free" to the South Seas, as far as Antofagasta, Chile, back north through the Panama and the islands of the Carribean, as far North in the Atlantic as the St. Lawrence River and into the Great Lakes, and back to the Panama Canal and Hawaii.
Born Free's present owner replaced the mast and rigging, refiberglassed the top of the boat, installed 15 new portholes, put a new Volvo Penta diesel engine, new, state-of-the-art dripless packing box, new voltage regulator and charger, new fuel tank and had it rewired. Additionally, the old interior was removed and replaced it with a new interior and paneling. The hull is in excellent shape and is typical of the fine construction of Cascade Yachts. "Born Free" is presently moored at the Ala Wai Yacht in Honolulu, Hawaii. The boat is in very good condition, and was recently drydocked and painted with four coats of the best bottom paint.
This boat could sail anywhere. It is good looking and safe. A true blue water cruiser which can be sailed single handed easily. If you have any questions contact email@example.com

About Cascade Boats (Excerpts from an Internet article)
Cascades have been finished by hundreds of owners, each in a different way, yet nothing disastrous has ever happened. In fact the problem, if there is one, is that owner-builders tend to overbuild everything. But then the hulls are also overbuilt as well, laminated with 8 layers of 24 oz. woven roving below the waterline on the 29 and 12 layers on the 42. (The expression "bulletproof" is often bandied around, but 45 slugs really do bounce off these hulls, which have survived groundings and collisions that would have sunk lighter boats.)
Whether you wish to sail the Pacific, or simply have a beautiful yacht to come to and stay in Hawaii, at one of the most beautiful vacation resorts in the world (without having to pay $300 or more per day for a hotel), BORN FREE is the boat and home for you - waiting.
