MAJOR PRICE REDUCTION: Sogno II was a custom designed flush-deck pilothouse cutter for businessman/sailor Reese Palley by Ted Brewer. Mr. Palley then hired Robert Pancoe to build the boat (dubbed an Oceanic 46 by the architect) in Taiwan. Mr. Pancoe went to Mao-Tai shipyard to have the vessel built and after the start of construction the decision was made to build several Oceanic 46’s and Pan Oceanic Marine was started with Sogno (launched “Unlikely VII”) becoming hull # 1. After her launch, Sogno was sailed extensively throughout the world. Her current owner purchased her in 2007 and has sailed her throughout the Caribbean and Mediterranean doing several transatlantic crossings and visiting Central America and the southern part of the United States. During this time, Sogno underwent several refits and many upgrades. The owner reports that although she appears to be a heavy boat, she is very responsive in light airs and, with a medium displacement hull, sizeable keel and low center of gravity, she also copes well with stronger winds and rougher seas. She is spacious and comfortable, with lots of deck space, an ergonomic cockpit, and a large saloon. Due to a change in career plans, the owner has decided that he will not have the time necessary to keep Sogno II in the condition he wants and thus she is now on the market. A very special boat indeed looking for yet more adventure
