Amizade is a Bavaria 47 built in Germany in 2000 and commissioned in Seattle, Washington. The boat was used for local cruising and racing. Her feathering propeller, 150% genoa, and asymmetrical spinnaker made her a frequent winner!
Amizade was purchased by the current owner in 2006. Since then equipment has been added, upgraded or replaced to make her suitable for long distance cruising, including; a separate large freezer, water maker, solar panels, a large bank of house batteries, and a unique modified zinc anode protection system for easy maintenance. All lifelines have been replaced by stainless steel hand rails.
Amizade is now a fully-equipped hybrid cruiser and racer. Her new sails allow her to perform exceptionally well close-hauled. The 9-ton fin keel with a bulb and a large spade rudder make the boat highly maneuverable, stable and comfortable.
Amizade is located in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico near the Sea of Cortez, one of North America’s favorite cruising areas.
