The Puma 350 was the swan song of the great Spanish shipyard and it shows in the quality of its construction in the interior carpentry and in the finishing details. Designed by the great Xavier Soler, this is a magnificent cruiser-racer of the kind we need so much nowadays: excellent upwind, agile downwind, you have to keep the bow light in bad weather to get the best out of her. On deck it is very comfortable, with luxurious features such as the side openings in the lifeline. The elegant cockpit ends forward, flush with the deck, in keeping with the style of the moment, and makes it easy to move between bow and stern. The very spacious cockpit has comfortable seats that do not hinder the winch handling. The manoeuvers are very easy to handle and everything is routed to the cockpit. The whole thing conveys a feeling of robustness unknown in modern boats. The interior features luxurious woodwork, superbly crafted with a profusion of high quality details. Only 5 units of the 350 were built at Puma, which are highly sought after on the second-hand market due to their quality. A sixth unit was built ten years later for the designer himself, Xavier Soler, a sign of the quality of this magnificent boat. The unit we present is in very good overall condition. Her name, Piteas, the great Greek explorer of Massalia, conveys a greater preference for long distance cruising, which facilitates the good water and fuel capacities of this vessel. On the other hand, the powerful rig, with a double spreader mast, spinnaker pole and boom, offers excellent sailing sensations. The Piteas only needs a change of standing rigging and of some covers to be in perfect sailing condition.
