Description:
Lovely, restored Beetlecat. Built in 1979 and restored by the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) in Rhode Island in 2015. The perfect boat to learn sailing or for teaching kids or grand-kids. New North Sail used only a handful of times. New topside paint and 7 coats of varnish on the brightwork. Boat needs nothing but a fresh coat of bottom paint and a new captain. Her wide beam and single sail make this a very good boat for the beginner or seasoned sailor alike.

Made entirely of wood, featuring oak frames with cedar planking, with no ballast, it is unsinkable. The large decked area forward on the boat, means spray falls on the deck rather than inside the boat. The rig is similar to that used on the old, large-size Cape Cod catboats, with the mast well forward, and using a single sail. With this type of rig, known as a gaff rig, if you release the tiller, the boat will head into the wind and practically stop. This feature makes it an ideal boat for youngsters.

Estimated weight fully rigged is 450 lbs
