Description: 35 ft(38 ft overall) Keel-Centreboard rock-solid Cruising Ketch. Perfect for Bahamas and other shoal-draft areas, but with a world-cruising capabilities, this pedigree Ferro Cement classic has been immaculately restored, refitted, and is due to arrive in Florida next week.
She is very much a hands on traditional sailing boat with hank on sails and a classic manual bronze gipsy windlass. A classic for teaching sailing, but also fast, comfortable, beautiful and unique. Built over-strong by NASA engineer John Laudadio, this is one of the last five boats produced in Baltimore in the 1970s and as such is allowed to parade in the Baltimore yearly historic regatta.
An all-round Chesapeake classic - traditional Skipjack above deck, on a racer-cruiser hull (Finisterre: http://sparkmanstephens.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/design-1054-finisterre.html). Teak lined with huge headroom. Radar, Wind, Solar, SSB, Garmin Plotter, Refrigeration etc etc. All fully functional and newly overhauled.
Recent installation of long-range Yanmar 35hp engine on custom-built steel engine-bed, with only 1500 hours and a new transmission, this boat was known and loved for 30 years all around North Chesapeake.
We have upgraded the systems for blue-water cruising (including re-wire, hot water etc.) over eight loving years.
She was kept in fresh water and launched and raced/cruised seasonally until two years ago. We have found her to be ideally suited as a cruiser live-aboard vessel, with her roomy and airy living quarters and a 4ft shoal draft with a drop keep centre-board which makes total draft 8ft 9 when down.
She is currently lying in Isla Mujeres withg a new depth transducer installed, after a wonderful cruise around the North West Caribbean.If not sold, we will bring her back to Cheasapeake Bay in a few weeks, or possibly transatlantic to Europe.
