The Uri is a true blue-water motorsailer, uniquely designed to be operated and enjoyed by a wheelchair-bound paraplegic. Built in 1992 at Damstra shipyards in Holland, she is spacious and comfortable for 4-6 people, with two bedrooms below, a large enclosed galley and lounge abovedecks, and ample fore and aft sundecks. Maintained with love and care, the Uri's hull is 100% aluminum for longevity and durability. A true one-of-a-kind yacht, the Uri is uniquely comfortable and capable vessel for all aboard.

The Uri is no superficial makeover of an existing yacht—she was designed for full accessibilty above and belowdecks. Galley, shower, head, and engine room are all wheelchair-friendly, enabling usage and maintenance by the owner. Thought was given to getting on and off the boat as well; the Uri boasts an aft Hydraulic crane and wide gangways for easy embarkation and disembarkation from any pier. Important controls have been placed within reach of a seated person, from lightswitches to winches. You'll find accessibility evident in many thoughtful details throughout the boat; she is a truly accessible motorsailer.
