Ardenna is the Shearwater University Flagship.  She is an exquisite Sabre 402, built with Maine craftsmanship to be a high performing cruiser with well appointed and comfortable interior.  With her efficient rig she is easy to handle for a couple, yet spacious enough for the whole gang - in the cockpit and down below.
New to the SU fleet in October 2020, the Nancy Lee is a Pearson 323 - famed for their quality of design and construction.  She's a great sailor in both light and strong winds.  With a traditional rig and highly practical design, the Nancy Lee is an outstanding boat for getting started with sailing and cruising.
