Description: As a broker, it’s often very difficult to properly communicate the uniqueness and opportunity that a vessel presents. In describing this vessel, I hesitated to use the term “project” as it doesn’t properly tell the tale. So often when we hear the term “project” we run for the hills with visions of rusting hulks and rotting stringers. In this very rare case, nothing could be further from the truth. The term “project” is used here only to indicate that she needs finishing. You will not restore this boat. You will finish this boat to your specifications. Despite the fact that she’s been on dry land for many years, her owner has gifted her with continuous upkeep and maintenance. Please view the video. I’ve spent time aboard this boat and can tell you first-hand that she looks like she was built yesterday. You are looking at an 80% complete steel world traveler with just enough flexibility for your custom touches.

Make no mistake, she is a project in the truest sense of the word. There are many, many parts included in the sale and many other items that you’ll want to add to finish her to your specifications. However, this pilothouse ketch is a serious, bluewater vessel that when completed. will be ready, willing and able to take you around the world. As she sits right now, she could be ready to sail in VERY short order. Her engine runs great - just hook up the engine controls, raw water, exhaust, add a set of sails and you'll motorsail away! Take your time as you sail, live aboard and complete your dream.

If you are thinking about world cruising or a great live aboard that you can tailor with your own finishing touches, this is that rare opportunity.

Only one of 6 ever built, this J. Murray Watts design features a Ό thick, single chine, symmetrical steel hull with wing keel. Her owner built her with no compromises between safety, durability and quality.
You must see this vessel to make your own judgement about the opportunity she presents.
