Wild Card is a 60ft/18m, sturdy, steel hulled vessel, meaning she is one of the few boats that will sail the waters between San Blas and Cartagena year round, what ever the weather. Her size and stability often makes her a popular choice for passengers concerned about seasickness.
Three big meals a day are provided plus a mid-morning second breakfast. Also included at no extra charge is one fresh seafood meal.
‘Wild Card’ has a large deck space including a large awning, ideal for lounging while anchored in the islands. 20 passengers can be accommodated so there is normally a good mix of personalities and a fun atmosphere on board. Motorcycles transit can also be arranged.
Wild Card was constructed in Australia for deep ocean cruising in the southern waters of Australia. The vessel is 60ft in length and weighs 40 ton. The hull and topsides are steel. The main saloon and pilot house windows are 10mm plate glass. The pilot house is designed to enable full control of the sails from inside.
The main engine is a 120 HP Ford Lees with approximately 6500 engine hours. There are two generators, an 11 Kva Mitsubishi and a 7.5 Kva Fischer Panda.
The vessel has a 5000 litre fuel capacity.
There are engine driven emergency pumps to four areas of the boat as well as electric bilge pumps and hand pumps.
Fire extinguishers are located in the forward cabin area, the galley and outside the engine room.
Other safety equipment includes two Epirbs (emergency positional beacons) a life raft, HF & VHF radios, a radar, 3 GPS receivers, a sea anchor and life jackets for all on board.
