This boat was built by myself an amateur boat builder. The construction is plywood stitch and glue with epoxy taped seams and epoxy coating. The boat has been sailed mostly at lakes but twice in the Texas 200 event on the coastal bays where she performed very well. Generally this boat is known for being easy to sail and for its excellent sailing ability on all points of sail. Its been well maintained and shows no sign of its age in the hull. The motor has less than 10 hours. The sails are standard original from B&B Yatchs and in good condition. All the rigging hardware is marine quality from B&B Yatchs. The masts are aluminum and the spirit booms are wood. The boat, motor, and trailer are all titled and have current Texas Registration.
This boat built if by professional builder with premium woods and a professional finish would be worth 3 or 4 times this price. While this one gets many good reviews for her looks at the dock, its offered at reasonable price for a home built boat with working class finish. The motor, trailer, masts, and hardware if offered alone would be valued at nearly the same price.
Please email me with any questions or requests for more detailed photos.
