Santa Cruz 53C Soul Sauce

The perfect size, speed, and agility for double-handed Cruising  

Known for their successful ultra light racers, Santa Cruz Yachts built the Santa Cruz 53C as a fully dedicated performance cruiser.  The Santa Cruz 53C has the same hull form as the racy 52 but incorporates a ton of features that have simplified it for shorthanded sailing.  The 53C was developed out of the feedback from those who took their 52’s cruising.  The deck layout is simplified with the biggest asset being a hard dodger with the mainsheet attached to the top of the dodger. The expansive cockpit it now totally unencumbered by the mainsheet and traveler. The mainsheet winches still are aft so you can sail the boat single handed from the wheel. Conceptualized for couples doing long-distance cruising, the main can be reefed singlehandedly from the cockpit with all control lines for everything aft as well.

This is one well thought out offshore cruising boat; it has the speed to get you where you want in total comfort, safety and style at a fraction of new boat pricing.
