S/V Milou

Milou is a 1983 Beneteau First 38. She was built in France and shipped to Texas, where she spend a pretty relaxed life on Lake Texoma. Never outfitted for cruising, she was sadly neglected in her later years; we are working hard to bring her back to life and get her ready for ocean sailing and family living.

The drawings above show a line drawing of the boat; a bird’s-eye view of the deck (quite the winch farm); and a bird’s-eye view of the interior. The shaded areas in the interior drawing represent bunks; the kids each have their own rooms in the back of the boat, while Michu and I are in the bow.
