Description: After eight years of owning our Tanzer (or do our boats own us?), the time has come to pass her on to someone else who will serve her, attend to her every whim and generally keep her in the style to which she has become accustomed.

Our lovely 1979 Tanzer 8.5 #10 ‘Deep Joy’, has been our family cruiser since 2006. She's currently in the water at Outer Harbour Marina, Toronto, Ontario and has always been a freshwater boat. She's in wonderful shape for a lady of her experience and we’re selling her only because we looking for a much larger boat to liveaboard.

She’s a wonderful boat, steady and predictable under sail, very roomy for a 28’ boat with tons of storage and 6’4 headroom. The always reliable 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. A perfect family cruiser or an ideal starter ‘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!
