SHAZAM is a rare offering and a fantastic value for anyone looking for a well found fast passage maker. The current owners of Shazam used her originally for a mixture of East Coast cruising and local racing including three Annapolis to Bermuda races and an Annapolis to Newport race. With the owners' interest in further offshore adventures in 2008,the boat was completely refitted for long-term ocean cruising with safety and cruising comfort in mind. Following the refit,the owners then sailed her double-handed across the Atlantic to the Mediterranean where they spent several years cruising the Mediterranean from west to east, visiting Spain, Italy, Malta, Greece, Turkey and Croatia. Shazam was then shipped back to the Chesapeake Bay in late 2017. You can access their blog site for more of their adventures. SHAZAM.
