If you have dreamed of sailing the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean, here’s your chance.

Brilliant is a blue water cruise-ready vessel already in the Caribbean!

This 1989 Moody 425 sloop with in-mast furling has thousands of sea miles under her keel. We have sailed full-time on various boats and Brilliant is by far the best. We are presently in the southern Windwards for the 2016 hurricane season.

Having cruised continuously for 10+ years we are ready to come ashore for land-based adventures.
