This 2002 traditional catboat is meticulously maintained and ready to daysail or cruise. She is loaded with original optional features and many recent upgrades. This boat priced for quick sale (below many older models).
The owners have moved up to a Menger 23.
At the same size as many 22-foot to 24-foot sloops, she is the perfect pocket cruiser. The cabin has sitting headroom for a 6' 8" person, and the bunks measure 10 feet so there is ample room for you to sleep. The cockpit is large enough for eight people to sit comfortably.
With all lines leading back to the cockpit, the boat is easily single-handed. Her shallow draft allows access to many anchorages unavailable to other cruisers. With a trailer and a tabernacle folding mast (easily raised by one person), your cruising range is unlimited.
