Aquavit is a 1958 clinker planked wooden Nordic Folkboat built by Haussen in northern Denmark. Imported in 1960 and sailed in the PSW until 2017 when she was lovingly restored in Oklahoma.
The previous owner restored the mast, installed new decking and installed new standing rigging in 2015 / 2016.
A professional restoration was carried out by Howard Classic Boats on Grand Lake in Oklahoma during 2017 / 2018. The restoration cost over $50,000 to complete. There were 15 planks replaced below the water line, 24 ribs replaced, all 11 floor frames were rebuilt or replaced, new stainless keel bolts were installed. All teak surfaces on the exterior were sanded and refinished. New top side and bottom side paint. A portlight installed. Cabinet with galley sink installed. The cushions were recovered.
During a spring storm Aquavit sunk in her slip and rested about a foot below the surface, supported by her dock lines. The keel was immediately, and professionally repaired, the hull pressure washed, calked with 5200 and prepped for paint. The owner has elected not to proceed with finishing repairs as he has another boat in Florida where he spends time.
At this stage Aquavit should simply need:
Complete rewiring with new bilge pumps, charger inverter and fuse panel
Transom needs to be sanded and refinished.
The two year old Tohatsu 6hp Sailpro will need to be rebuilt or replaced.
She needs a healthy cleaning in the interior and cockpit.
It is in your best interest to review the boat to determine any other repairs or improvements you may want to make. Aquavit is sold as is and no warranties are provided for her condition.
Aquavit is currently hauled out and sitting on her trailer at Scissortail Marina waiting for her new owners. With a little TLC Aquavit could be sailing again with you and your family this summer!
