Description: Our lovely 1979 Tanzer 8.5 ‘Deep Joy’ has been our family cruiser since 2006. We’re selling her only because we are looking for a much larger boat to liveaboard. She’s a wonderful boat, very steady and predictable under sail, very roomy for a 28’ boat with tons of storage and 6’4 headroom. The 15hp Yanmar diesel inboard and 3-blade prop push her to near hull speed with power to spare when you need it. Tiller steering is precise and simple, and very light with her new Ruddercraft solid HDPE balanced foil rudder. She has been a fresh water boat on Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. A perfect family cruiser and an ideal first ‘big boat’.


We’re selling her as a complete ready-to-sail-away package, with absolutely everything you need to cast off and go sailing!


She's currently in the water at Outer Harbour Marina, Toronto, Ontario and we'll be hauling her out at the end of October. Winter storage at Outer Harbour Marina,Toronto paid for 2013/14!
