It has never been our intention to keep Insolita as our “forever” boat, but we have managed to proceed more quickly than we had intended in finding a new boat for our family, so the time has come to find a new caretaker.
Baba’s have sailed all over the world, and have proven themselves capable offshore boats. Insolita is currently setup for coastal cruising and has served us well daysailing, weekending, and several week+ trips. We’ve intentionally kept her with fairly simple but robust systems. We do most of our navigation on iPads, that do double duty as movies screens in the evenings. She’s always kept us safe, warm & secure.
I’m not going to spend anytime trying to convince you what Baba’s are all about, there are plenty of resources on the internet to find out more about them, and it seems silly to repeat them all here.

All of the lighting throughout is LED, with the exception of a couple of reading lights kept incandescent for ambience. There is 6’4″ headroom throughout. There are handholds everywhere, and not a sharp corner in sight.
Starting forward, there is a large v-berth with shelves and louvered cabinets on either side. There is a large hatch, and three opening portlights. In the forepeak there is access to the anchor well. Beneath the berth there is access to storage through the six individual cushions. There is also a set of drawers.
Immediately aft and to port there is a large wardrobe, to starboard there is the head behind a solid teak door. There is a manual pump fresh water faucet and a manual head, connected to either the holding tank or overboard. There is a louvered storage compartment behind the head, and under the sink. There is one opening portlight.
Moving aft you have the saloon, again clad in teak. Above there is a huge butterfly hatch. On the port side there is a pull out settee, on the starboard side a fixed settee and between a solid teak drop leaf table with shelf. There is tons of storage above & behind the settees. Beneath the settees are the water tanks and holding tank. There are 3 opening portlights. The head unit for the stereo is here, and it is wired to the cable outlet.
Moving aft again you have the u shaped galley to port. A double stainless sink near the centerline, with manual pump tank water and seawater. There is a shipmate 2 burner stove and oven. Beneath the sink is the compressor for the Norcold cold box conversion. It draws very little power and keeps the fridge plenty cold. It runs on both shore power and DC. There are 5 louvered storage compartments, as well as several open storage areas. There are 2 opening portlights and an opening mushroom vent.
On the starboard side is the chart table / nav desk. There is ample storage, and an opening chart table. There is an opening portlight. Beneath the seat is the backup battery. Behind the seat is a hanging wet locker. Many Babas have a quarter berth in this location, but this model provides a larger wet locker, and a significant amount of extra space in the starboard lazerette.
The companionway platform lifts off to reveal great engine access. There are 2 storage compartments above. The companionway doors are louvered with weather covers. There are also dropboards.
In the cockpit there are two lazerettes that allow for complete access to the hull underneath, from the rudder tube all the way to the back of the engine. The boat is tiller steered so there is plenty of space for entertaining on the hook or sailing with friends. On the bulkhead is mounted a Danforth Constellation compass to port, and the autopilot head, knotmeter and depth meter to starboard. There is teak grating on the cockpit sole and 2 1″ scuppers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_text_separator title=”Sails Inventory” color=”orange”][vc_column_text]Main sail [2x full & 2x partial battens] 130 Roller furling Genoa
