PIQUET was designed and built for her current owners for a circumnavigation which has been successfully completed by this cruising couple. She was designed by Robb Ladd to be easily handled by a crew of two and built by renowned boat builder Howdy Bailey of Marine Metals. The owners took nine years to circumnavigate encountering all types of weather including a Pacific cyclone and PIQUET was always up to the task. A  marine survey, hull adioguage and  total  refit to the tune of $100,000.00 satisfying  all survey recommendations was completed by Marine Metals  in 2013 and PIQUET is ready to go again. Anyone looking for a true bluewater cruiser would be remiss in not considering PIQUET. She is ready to go and priced to sell.
