Description: Beautiful blue water cruiser or comfortable live-a-board sailboat.
Beautifully varnished teak interior gives this lovely boat a rich feel. The living space is airy, open, and light with skylights and opening ports. With two cabins and a pilot berth the boat is well set up for traveling with kids, or as a couple welcoming visitors, or plenty of room to stay put and live aboard. A counter/work bench to starboard of the U-shaped dinning table gives extra space for projects. Comfortable navigation desk and seat to plot your course or sit and read. Look at her or see the photos for details! Move aboard and give her what she needs and she'll take you far.
She has been to Mexico and back, and to Alaska and back, both trips completed before 1985. Between 1985 and 1998 she's sailed no more than 600 miles. Between1998 and 2001she was a lived aboard and kept in beautiful shape. The present owner is the third and has owned her since 1989.
The head was moved from the bow to the stern by the previous owner. The head was moved into part of the starboard quarter berth cabin. The head has a toilet, small holding tank, and sink, but no shower.
There are no hull blisters now, nor has the boat ever had any since 1989 when the current owner bought the boat. Probably because the boat was laid up with pre-blister era resin and has always lived in cold water. The teak decks are still in good shape, they are well adhered and don't have any screw heads showing. The deck is solid fiberglass, no core. In a few places bungs have come out and were epoxy filled. The owner is not aware of any deck leaks.
All sea cocks were replaced or serviced in 2011. New bottom and topside paint in 2011. Raw water pump for engine replace in early 2012. New paint on cabin house, and bulwarks in 2012. New mainsail cover, hatch glazing, and all running rigging in 2012.
She is hull Number 3 with a performance keel (separate keel).
She weights 33,500# with 11,000# ballast.
