“Carisma” is a safe, comfortable, center cockpit bluewater cruising ketch that is large enough to hold family, friends and guests for a day, a week, or on a longer adventure, while still being set up to be easily handled by two people. With three staterooms, two heads, and a large spacious cockpit, “Carisma” has exceptional space for entertaining, privacy, and family members to have their own spaces.  

Amenities include separate refrigerator and freezer, solar power, Westerbeke generator, 3 zone air conditioning, water maker, washer/dryer, and extensive electronics.   She has received a major refit and is in like-new condition.  The refit included new aluminum fuel and water tanks, complete re-wiring of both the 12 volt and 110 volt systems, a new main salon with modern furniture, and much more!  She is now properly outfitted for world cruising. 

 The Nautical brand is not as well known as Irwin, Gulfstar and other “name” brand cruisers that were built in the day, since not as many Nauticals were built, but she shares the same attributes: rock-solid thick fiberglass hull, sea-kindliness, good steady sailing ability, a spacious, open, roomy, beautiful teak interior, plenty of above-deck space, many opening hatches and ports, huge water and fuel tanks for extended cruising, and a sturdy rig. She was designed by the well known naval architect Steve Seaton.   Carisma is an incredible value for the money: a well-founded, well-maintained fifty-six-foot sailing home now made available by her knowledgeable owner!
