The SV Marco Polo is a Marconi rigged Newporter Pilothouse Ketch.
Several Newporters have made successful passages across oceans, with the most recent circumnavigation in 2004. This boat has been rigged for singlehanded, with all lines lead aft, slab reefing and all controls in easy reach when at the helm. The beautiful clipper bow will ride OVER waves and swell, not under them. The skeg mounted rudder and full keel give this boat true bluewater qualities, features that serious cruisers understand
