    A Capable Boat that Behaves Well Under a Variety of Conditions. With a 6-foot beam and generous freeboard the Wayfarer feels and acts much larger than a typical 16-foot sailboat. When it comes to performance it is lively and will come up on a fast plane when conditions are right. The combination of the forward and aft watertight compartments provides positive buoyancy as well as loads of stowage space--enough to hold clothing, camping gear and food for a two to three week cruise. The two aft side seat benches are easily lifted out (by undoing a couple of wing nuts) and can be placed cross-ways upon the forward seats. This makes a roomy aft cockpit for sleeping (on the floor) and more space for preparing meals on board if anchored away from shore, or in the event of rainy weather. In this configuration the aft seats become a temporary shelf for getting bulky items out of the way. On day excursions the Wayfarer will hold four adults safely and comfortably. For long distance cruising it is a superb boat for the single handed sailor, as well as for two people.

    Alison, The boat sold today, to the first person to look at it. Thank you.
