The Apogee 50 designed by Chuck Paine and built by Able Marine is among our ultimate favorite sailing vessels for a couple to sail anywhere. She was designed to be easily sailed by a couple and good for a solo voyager to sail single-handed. Apogee 50’s have circumnavigated the globe, rounded the Horn, and chalked up numerous ocean crossings.

 The Apogee is sleek and fast with an easily driven hull shape. Her long waterline of 45 plus feet and her powerful sail plan spells speed and comfort. With her lead ballast keel weighing in at 11,400 lbs, a carbon fiber mast and roller furling boom she has remarkable stability and momentum. She sails to weather exceedingly well and with the wind on the quarter she screams. This modern hull design, combined  with the easily managed sail plan, makes this boat very special. Everything about the Apogee is designed with purpose and function as the foremost consideration. The hard dodger is incredible because you are out of the weather. The large area under the dodger is essentially another nav station as you can have all your equipment right there. It is so comfortable, so safe, and so secure,  enabling you to sail relaxed, warm, and dry under a wide range of conditions.  With two step down levels under the dodger, you can stand up completely in the companionway and have total visibility. With the autopilot remote you can steer from this secure vantage point. This vessel is designed for comfort and security both outside and inside.

Just two additional steps from the cockpit to the galley, head, and nav station make it easy to transit between the cockpit and cabin level and to communicate between areas. While the Apogee is first and foremost an amazing sailing vessel, she is also a lovely yacht down below that is a wonderful home for a couple and occasional guests. The quality is evident everywhere you look. From the teak and holly sole to the sweet cherry joinery the interior is perfection. She is light and bright and warm and solid. The Apogee is as delightful at anchor or at the dock as she is romping the ocean. Although technically you could sleep six , there is no reason you would want to because she is so easy for two people to sail.

And sail they did! Since taking delivery in the spring of 1997 the owners of Aponivi have enjoyed living aboard for extended periods and  have made two trans-Atlantic  crossings as well as north-south voyages between Martinique and Maine. The first trans-Atlantic voyage took them to Portugal via Bermuda and the Azores and then into the Med to enjoy the south coast of Spain, Ibiza, and Mallorca. They shipped the boat back on a Dockwise yacht transport. The second trans-Atlantic voyage took them back to England to hang out in Falmouth and enjoy the Channel coast of England and the South Coast of Ireland and later on to Wales and Scotland and ultimately back to the Med for more of the Spanish Coast and Balearic Islands. After another westward Dockwise transPort to Martinique they lingered to enjoy the Caribbean and then the Virgins, Turks and Caicos and Bahamas before rejoining the US coast and sailing onward to a new base at Mystic Connecticut. They loved the boat and they loved being aboard and so continued to cruise in summers in Maine and Cape Cod and all the beautiful “local” cruising grounds. It has been a wonderful retirement for the owners who have loved and enjoyed their Able Apogee 50. After about 20 years of enjoying and meticulously maintaining the boat the time  has come for them to do other things and for someone new to enjoy Aponivi. Someone who is very lucky will get to own a great boat!
