Raffles Marina, Singapore
The rumors are true. After nearly four years and 25,000 miles the Micos are calling it a day. Bad news for us but good news for you if you are looking for a great boat at an amazing price. It also helps if you like SE Asia!

First, a few facts about the yacht:
Q & A from emails:
Where are you located?
We are on the west side of the island nation of Singapore in Raffles Marina.
So why are you doing this?
We've had a good run and we want to get out on a high note. It has nothing to do with how we feel about Mico. She's been a trusted and loyal companion throughout all our travels.
How can the price be so low if there's "nothing" wrong with her?
OK, so there's no such thing as a perfect boat, however the cost reflects not the state of Mico's repair but the economics of our cost to the ship her all the way back to the US. It's win-win for all involved if we can sell her here as opposed to back in Seattle. I will go on-the-record and state that Mico has never been in as good condition as the day she pulled into Raffles Marina after three months in Indonesia. She was a wreck when we purchased her in 2003 and now she's a cruising yacht you can be proud of and rely upon.
