Tour Panacea

Below you will find information about Panacea. She's quite a boat and I think when you sail her, you will agree.

If you are in town, just give me a call and I'll arrange a tour for you. That way you can feel how special she is. A boat with history. A boat with soul.

Below the specifications there are some gray boxes. CLICK on those boxes for further information and a photo.

Enjoy your tour. We look forward to sailing with you in the near future. Look at our Daily Schedule page for information, pricing and packages.

Our stay on Panacea was the best vacation experience we have ever done. We are already planning our next trip with Capt. Paul & Alex... This time, "To the Keys!"

This was the most relaxing and exciting adventure we had while in Fort Myers.

Maggie was the perfect sea dog.

When Panacea sits at anchor, it's time to celebrate the day, the night or the passage.

Panacea loves to sail. She takes us places that we can only get to by water. The passages are exciting and give us a chance to test our skills.

Once "wherever", we drop the hook and kick back with food, drink and music as we celebrate the day and transition into the night. Life is Peace.

Panaceas main saloon is a work of art and the "Gathering Place" for us all.

There are a lot of wonderful places on Panacea. This is one of them.

Her 6' 7" headroom thru out the vessel makes it easy to move anywhere you want.

The door you see is the entrance door to the forward cabin. Also the table, with fold up wings is very large for eating and playing cards or other games.

The forward cabin has a nice small double bed, drawers and a closet.

Stacks Image 154
This is very comfy cabin. It has 3 opening ports and a hatch for ventilation as well as a fan. The double is small, but nice.

Two drawers under the bed and another 3 next to the hanging closet.

Just as you enter, there is a full head to the starboard.

From a sailors point of view, I was concerned about sailing a center cockpit ketch, but this girl can sail. We went from Ft. Myers Beach to Venice and with the anchorages, meals and company, we had an amazing sailing experience.

We'll be back, again and again.

This is one of my favorite places to sit, read and relax in Panaceas saloon.

Stacks Image 156
On the port side of Pansacea's saloon, there are these two chairs with a flip up table.

It's a perfect place to sit and relax. Nice place to catch up on your email since Pancea is a WiFi Hot Spot also.

There's a storage hatch in the top of the cabinet also.

Looking aft from doorway of the forward cabin.

This is a view from the doorway of the forward cabin looking across the saloon to the galley and steps to the cockpit.

Behind the "L" shaped settee is the nav station and separate desk.

The doorway in the distance leads to the aft cabin.

Time to cook and eat. Here's the ships galley.

No one ever goes hungary when they sail on Panacea. Capt. Paul is one heck of a cook and enjoys showing off in the galley.

Meals are prepared for you and served on deck or in the saloon.

She has a 3 burner stove, 2 refrigerators, 2 stainless sinks and a lot of storage as well as a pantry in the hall to the aft cabin.

Heading aft past the nav station, work station and engine room to the aft cabin.

Stacks Image 159
Just starboard of the steps to the cockpit, is the nav station. This is where we mark charts, listen to the radio, play music and plan trips.

The door leads to the work bench, engine room and the aft cabin.

The aft cabin also has a separate head and shower.

The aft cabin has a comfy double bed and en suite head.

Stacks Image 160
This cabin is a beauty. The bed is very comfy and depending on which way we are heeling, you can put your head "on the high side."

There is also a full separate head and shower.

When you book your cruise, you will enjoy this comfortable cabin for a night or two or Seven.

She even has a very pretty bottom...

Stacks Image 161
She's got lines. She was built to sail, and sail she does.

We pull her out of the water every once and awhile to make sure everything is fine below the water line.

During her time in the water, we have a diver go down every 3 to 4 weeks to clean and inspect her to make sure she is ready for all her voyages.

Back outside, Panacea has a very large cockpit with shade.

Stacks Image 162
When we are sailing, we want it all. Sun when we want it and shade when we want it.

The cockpit is completely padded and covered so you can duck out of the sun if you need too.

The helm has VHF radio, auto pilot, bow thruster, GPS and comfort. We have it all.

Looking from the bow to the cockpit. Lots of deck space.

Stacks Image 163
As you can see in this photo, there is plenty of deck space for you to socialize with your friends and family. Plenty of room to find your "special" spot to enjoy your cruise.

Panacea is strong, heavy and stable for your cruising pleasure.

Yet she is one heck of a sailing vessel.

So sail off into the sunset with FantaSea Sailing aboard the amazing Panacea.
