LeBlanc 50 “Mai Pehn Rai”

Across the Gulf of Maine

Designed and built for a couple in Maryland who wanted a real sea boat with real living room - for a more affordable price than the trumpeted names in cruising. Mai Pehn Rai (Thai for “No Worries”) will cruise the Chesapeake, the US Atlantic coast, and the Caribbean. With proper access to all areas of the vessel (the stand-up engine room is a pleasure to work in) this cruiser is a real home away from home.
