57' Custom Sparkman & Stephens/Hinckley 1994

BANDERA is a true "one of a kind" from two of the most respected names in  sailing.

The details and custom features of this gem are well thought out and executed.  She is a proven blue water cruiser having circumnavigated and cruised extensively in all corners of the globe.  BANDERA  won her class in the 2008 Newport/Bermuda Race proving that she is true racer/cruiser of the highest degree.

The recent major price reduction makes BANDERA a wonderful opportunity to own a modern classic that will live up to her heritage for years to come.
