1981 New Orleans Marine Serendipity 43 by Doug Peterson located in California for sale

42.5' New Orleans Marine Serendipity 43 by Doug Peterson


Description: Hooked is a lot of boat for the size and price tag. This American designed and built boat has had a major offshore cruising refit that sets her apart from the rest of the Serendipity 43 fleet.
With her thoroughbred pedigree this sailboat would be perfect for:
1) A couple or small family who wants to go cruising in a boat fast enough to get you to shelter before a storm.
2) A person who wants to go offshore eventually but until then race in the bay and do YRA / ocean races (Pac Cup / TransPac / Farallons)
3) A couple who wants to win beer cans, even as a live-aboard.
She is a double digit boat, just earlier this month in 15 knot winds we hit 8 knots on a reach with ONLY the jib unfurled to 100%.
She performs very well up wind and is fun to surf too.
