Tiempo de la Isla (Island Time) is designed after the traditional wooden fishing boats of Belize. She was built in 2012 by master shipwright Juan Guerrero in the fishing village of Sarteneja, Belize, the 28th boat in his 30 year career. The boat is built from the exotic woods of Belize including bullet wood for the full length keel, santa maria for the hull, and mahogany for the cabin and deck.
Tiempo de la Isla has provided the current owners the perfect boat to cruise the waters and reefs of Belize and enjoy fabulous sailing, snorkeling and fishing. The shallow draft allows access to beautiful shoal water anchorages. This shallow full length keel impacts the ability for fast sailing windward, but the large main sail allows for reaches and downwind runs at a breathtaking 8 to 10 knots.
Although based on traditional designs which are perfectly suited to the shoal water and coral reefs in Belize she is equipped with amenities for a cruising couple including the following:
Kitchen area with sink and stove
Comfortable large bed
40 gallon water tank
Depth and Chart Plotter
Enclosed self contained area for gas and propane
2014 Yamaha 20 hp outboard
2 danforth anchors
1 claw anchor
