Description: Designed in April 1971 by Arthur Edmunds, the Mistress was the first center-cockpit boat to come to the market with a walk-through passageway connecting the fore and aft cabins. During the 1972 New York Boat Show, there were 15-20 people waiting in line to see the Mistress during the entire show. Known for its roomy interior and rugged construction, the Mistress was featured in the "Classic Plastic" article in the December 1997 issue of Cruising World. The Mistress is a very comfortable offshore boat with its keel-stepped main mast and two heads, great for making extended offshore passages. The center cockpit version includes a walk-in engineroom, an aft cabin with standing headroom, a workbench, and a fixed dinette table. Two versions of the center cockpit Mistress were produced, an aft-cabin, and a "Great Cabin" with the aft cabin extended all the way to the transom. A total of approximately 60 Mistresses were constructed, including the Mistress Mark III, an aft-cockpit version. The Mk III made excellent use of the smaller interior space it had, featuring berths for five, swivel chairs, and a drop-leaf dining table. A Mistress can be found on the used-boat market for $45,000 to $60,000.

Equipment: Hydraulic autopilot with Simrad controller and fluxgate compass.
Westerbeke 4-cyl 230 c.i.d. 70 hp approx 3700 hrs well maintained (this is bigger than the usual 50 hp Perkins). It turns a very large prop to give 5.5 knots at a little less than a gallon per hour.
150 gal water, 3 gal. holding tank, two twin fuel tanks of 25 gal each (1998). There’s a water heater(2004) that runs on shorepower, and a pressure system.
1100-watt Heart inverter combined with the 50-amp shore power charger, Link-2000. LED's or in some cases fluorescent lights. Two house banks independently charged and tapped,plus an engine battery. The Aerogen wind-charger charges two 240 watt solar panel morning star regulator. 2 alternator for the engine battery house banks. e 120 AC wiring was replaced in 2005 including the shore-power inlet There have been too many improvements to the DC wiring to list. The starter was rebuilt in 1998 and the start switch replaced 2008.

The aft head was removed and converted it to storage. Most of that space
is complicated with a Village Marine Tec 160 water maker. The wooden furniture in both head compartments was replaced with Star Board.
The Nor-cold refrigeration was upgraded in 2010 with a 4.5 amp system. The
Galley Maid range is propane, and so is the Force 10 winter heater. The
two (redundant) 10-lb. propane tanks were re-certified 2009.

The Ideal electric windlass was factory refurbished in 2004. It is a
redoubtable machine and very handy for dealing with dock lines on a windy
day (rope drum) as well as handling the 160 feet of 5/16” chain. The 45
lb. CQR was our primary anchor but we also used the 60 lb. Danforth
sometimes and there’s a 45-lb Danforth too. I think the rope rode is 200
feet.
There’s a small main-sheet winch and two Barient two-speed jib
winches with two really clever reversing winch handles. jacklines to run from aft cleats to forward cleats when appropriate. The lifeline stanchions were fabricated new in 2008. there is a folding stainless boarding ladder.

The mainsail and mizzen were built in 1999 of 9-oz cloth. We had reef
points put in and set up reef lines instead of using the roller boom for
the main. The 125% jib was new in 2005 and all three sails were built
by Advanced here in St. Pete and are still in good condition. The older
135% jib is still in inventory and is in fair condition. The 1999
gennaker is stained and patched but still sound. There is a storm
trysail which we have never hoisted, condition unknown. Wichard lazy
jacks (1999); sail cover is a stacking pack with a zipper (2004).

The rigging wires themselves are 9/32 for the main and 5/32
for the mizzen. One element of the backstay is insulated for use as an
antenna (2007) and there is a copper foil ground installed against the
inside of the hull. Mainmast chainplates were removed, inspected,
cleaned and rebedded with new bolts in 2009. All running rigg
