Beachcomber 25' cat ketch, 1983, Snow Hill Maryland
This is an unusual shoal draft sailor and would be perfect for anyone wanting to expand their sailing range into those quit and secluded areas unavailable to a deeper draft boat. Beachcombers draw only 16" with the centerboard up and 5' with it down. Being heavily ballested these boats sail quite well with the centerboard up, or nearly so.
The boat has a wishbone rig with roller furling and the sails are like new with very little use. The Yanmar diesel ran fine at the time of winterization and includes updated and extra filters, hoses etc. A new raw water filter has been installed as has a new seacock and hoses. The boat has a two burner gas stove and a pressurized sink in the galley. The (enclosed) head is set up with a portable head, but a conversion to a standard marine head is possible.
Included are two anchors (one Danforth and one CQR) with rode, several fender bouys, an engine oil pump out device, new solar deck vents, new navigation lights and a bunch more stuff. There is an 110 V inverter onboard also.
The boat has been kept under roof and does include a trailer.
This is a project boat that is nearly complete; an injury forces me to sell. The hull is finished with two coats of an epoxy barrier coat and the topsides have been prepared and painted with one coat of an epoxy primer. The interior bright work (all new varnish) is complete with the cabinet doors and drawers done also, the same with the centerboard trunk cover.
The boat is currently housed in Snow Hill MD, on the Eastern Shore, and I'm asking $3,000 or OBO.
