Launched in Finland in November, 1970, and christened “Dulcinea” at that time, her name has never been changed in fifty (50) years.  She was sailed around the world by her first owner from 1971-1976.  Her provenance is well documented, including photos and newspapers from the 1970s circumnavigation.  She was re-powered with the Yanmar 3GMD in about 1984 by Palmer Johnson in Racine, WI.  She was sailed only 30 days (in fresh water) from 1990 to 1999, spending the rest of her time in heated indoor storage.  Purchased by her current owner in 2000, she has benefited from extensive upgrading, always in fresh water, for the last 20 years.
