The owners of Blue Tang Inn wanted a traditional sailboat for their guests that modeled the typical fishing boats in Belize. The 40 foot “Blue Mermaid” is made out of hardwoods found ... morein Belize, including Santa Maria, Bullet, and Mahogany. The traditional style and quality craftsmanship were maintained but we have added a diesel inboard engine, bathroom and plumbing fixtures and modern window hardware and lighting. The boat has a very unique style with its cabin shape and wide beam. It's a perfect boat for an awesome sunset sail.
