Our Boat

Empyrean at Avalon, Catalina CA.


Empyrean is a Mariner Mayflower 48 Masthead Ketch.  Approximately 42 hulls were built in Taiwan in the late 70's to early 80's.  Known for her ability to comfortably cross oceans, she has a comfortable 2 cabin/2 head layout with a pass through bunk and good head room.  We were particularly drawn to her for her strong hull, comfortable sail setup and roomy interior.  She had been on the docks for several years and was in need of plenty of updating in preparation for our journeys. We have transformed her into our floating home and are looking forward to our adventures ahead.
