Popularly known as the Baba 35’, this traditionally styled full keel double ender from the drawing board of Robert H. Perry.  Soteria was built by Ta Shing, the best boatyard to emerge from Taiwan during the 1970-80’s era. They have earned the reputation for respectable seagoing manners, sound construction and some of the best quality interiors to be found on cruising yachts even to this day.
