Perry Yacht Club offers fantastic sailing and camaraderie, as well as excellent facilities to economically store, sail and maintain a boat of this size. Onsite winter trailer storage, a deep ramp, and equipment and volunteers to help launch the boat in spring and pull the boat in winter are all available. The boat can also be kept in the water for year round sailing. The club has an excellent racing and social program, gorgeous on site camping, a great clubhouse with full double kitchen, nice bathrooms and showers, all with a view of the lake. It is by far the premier sailing organization in the central states area.
Needs a new head (current one works, but poorly) and a few small repairs, however the boat is 100% usable and can be sailed, motored, and enjoyed today.
To arrange a test sail, please email me, I will get back to you asap.
