  • 2000lbs. dry, 3000lbs. with water ballast. Fill upon launch and drain
  • on trailer at ramp.

    The boat trailers like a dream, is easy to sail single-handed, the motor starts on second turn of electric start, cockpit is roomy, interior looks great (did I mention new cushions).

  • Never bottom painted. (More photos upon request)

    I probably forgot a few things but Saint Somewhere, named after the lyrics in a Jimmy Buffet song called "Boat Drinks", is a great boat which we have enjoyed owning.

    Selling to buy a Sea Pearl Trimaran to keep at our covered dock on a canal off a lake in Citrus County Florida because Saint Somewhere is just too big for the dock/canal/lake and its trees/25' high powerline that divides the lake.

    I am agreeable to demo sails on Henderson Lake, a local lake, for $100 (that way I don't have to wash/flush/rinse as much as salt water requires), which will be applied to the purchase price, if you buy the boat.
