S/V Santa Gallina, now located at Panamarina (Panama), is a custom built Tonga 39 designed by Derek Kelsall. Constructed in plywood, epoxy and glass, the Santa Galina is an excellent cruising boat with a passage speed of 5 to 7 knots and a tacking angle of about 100 degrees.
Since her christening in 1999 she was first harbored in Sardinia and regularly sailed throughout much of the Mediterranean Sea. After crossing the Atlantic in 2015 (at an average speed of 6.1 knots) she has since been cruising up and down the Caribbean. During her twenty years on the water she has been well maintained and periodically modified into a higher performance vessel.
In 2009 the boat received two Yanmar engines with saildrives, and in 2013, new Selden standing rigging. In the past year she has been outfitted with a full set of new sails, including Main Sail, Furling Jib and Gennaker. Also new are Raymarine components such as chart plotter and AIS. She is ready to go for extensive sailing around the Caribbean and with minor additions she is prepared for a longer trip across the Pacific. The boat is especially well set up for dive enthusiasts, with an air compressor and other dive equipment on board.
The Santa Gallina was designed and built to be a very practical liveaboard vessel. While not weighed down with extraneous luxuries it is comfortable and well equipped for long trips. The belowdecks living space includes a sizable galley, one king berth, one queen berth, two single berths, one un-cramped head, and a central cabin that comfortably seats eight passengers or more.
The Santa Gallina has been well maintained through the years, and all remaining anticipated preventative maintenance was performed recently. With new sails recently purchased, the next large project is sealing the windows of the main cabin, which we expected should be completed within the next two or three years.
The Santa Gallina has been a great and worthy boat, and she has been part of countless fond memories for our family. With our extended family growing, we realize it is time for a larger boat. Nonetheless we are sure the Santa Gallina has many more great memories yet to provide, and the new owner will enjoy our boat as much as we did.
