The Honu (Hawaiian for sea turtle) is a Westsail 32.  She is a 40ft cutter rigged sloop built in 1975, beautifully maintained and in Bristol fashion.  The Honu's previous voyages include the South Pacific, New Zealand and back to Hawaii.   She carries only 6 guests and is a very safe and sea-worthy vessel.

The Westsail 32 is famously known as,
"The boat that launched a thousand dreams"
 and the sailing vessel that survived the "Perfect Storm"
