Description of the accomodations

Introduction

Goleta Gringo was built and restored to sail and, still, special attention was paid to decoration when she was restored. Security is combined with elegant, antique d'ecor in this sailboat. She is exquisitely conceived and crafted. She has beeb restored as the antique schooner she used to be, preserving her original rig and refitted as a confortable contemporary one.

All pure material and solid wood were used -no wood veneer or simulated materials were incorporated.

Originally, much of the sailboat's space was taken up by the cargo hold and today it is occupied by the below deck accomodations.
