    Detailed Description:

  • She's a sloop rigged fin keel sailboat with good manners and plenty of features to keep sailing easy and life at anchor and the dock comfortable. The large vee berth sleeps two adults, with room for more on each of two settees and a full size quarter berth. The efficient galley features a sink, very large refrigerated ice box, alcohol stove and flip-up counter extension. The main salon offers dining room for four at the fold-down table. Storage is plentiful just about everywhere with lockers, lazarettes and cubbies for all of your gear.

    For a very reasonable asking price, you'll be getting a sailboat with newer sails (including a beautiful 2-color spinnaker), cockpit canvas (dodger/bimini) and a very clean cabin and deck. She's got a reliable autopilot, an eager little engine and simple systems that are easy to maintain. All woodwork is in great condition and shows pride of ownership. The gelcoat shines from a fresh buff (3M Marine Finesse-It II Glaze) and wax (3M Marine Liquid Wax) and the boat is smooth and fast with 2 fresh coats of VC 17m bottom paint.
