Description: This heavy displacement ketch-rigged cruising sailboat was a limited production boat from the late 70'sdesigned for warm water, trade wind sailing; only 10 built. The Herreshoff lineage means something and it is alive and well in this boat. It has proven itself a capable passage maker on two R/T, CA to Hawaii and a Latin America/S. Pac cruise. She's a wonderful live- aboard. Go anywhere and be comfortable, safe and secure. This is a big 50 footer with full bilges and lots of keel. Loves 20-25 knots and feels secure in 40. Perkins 6-354; Motor at 5 to 6 knots at 13-1400 rpm and 1.5 gph. 1200 miles under power without extra fuel. Roomy head aft w/sit down shower. Smaller head w/ shower at foot of companionway ladder. Spacious engine room. Never had to gimble the stove in 15,000 miles! This is the comfy ride you need! If you want a serious cruiser/live-aboard, you have to see this vessel. Now located on the hard at Napa Valley Marin and ready for your special attention. She needs extensive refitting : mast/rigging overhaul, remove existing worn out teak deck and refinish with your choice, paint the hull, restart the Perkins, put on new running rigging and sails and you will have a boat worth more than your investment that you can be proud of and will take you anywhere.

Equipment: mid-cockpit. Interphase Probe in cockpit. Furuno Radar, GPS, Icom SSB/HAM & VHF in very useful nav area in aft cabin. 13' Port-a-bote w/ 5 hp Mercury/Mariner. Lots of tools and spares. 275 gallons fuel and water. Double filtered water. 1200 miles under power alone on Perkins 6-354 . Ideal 1000 elec. windlass. Five anchors, two rodes. Two 100 watt Siemans solar panels, 1500 watt inverter. Auto Pilot and Saye's Rig wind vane steering system. Factory emergency tiller. Six person life raft; EPIRP w/built in GPS. Two 3 blade props (one is spare). Tremendous storage; room for almost anything you care to bring along! Very simple and easily maintained systems.
