This is one of the original Seafarers built in Holland, nothing like the Seafarers of the 1980's.
Full length shoal keel with swing centerboard
3700 lbs. 1400 ballast
SA 229, SA/Disp. 15.36
Outboard 9.9 Johnson Sailmaster in lazarette with remote controls and electric start. 3 gallon external fuel tank.
One year old mainsail from Bacon sails. (original spec sail for this boat), with reefing points. Includes new main sail cover also.
Roller furler jib. Refurbished jib last year.
New interior seat cushions.
Includes dual axle trailer with 2 year old tires. Extendable tongue to launch without getting the truck in the water.
All hardware is original bronze including the winches and includes the original bronze winch handles.
The boat is in good, (not perfect) condition.
The interior has a porta potty, sink, decent storage and will sleep two comfortably. It is not fancy by todays standards.
This boat was designed to sail, it is very fast and it is happiest the stronger the wind blows. She will put a rail in the water and go where you point.
Two years ago I completely rewired the boat with a new updated fuse block.
The boat is almost all solid fiberglass, no balsa core to rot. There is some foam core. No soft spots.
$3,645 includes everything that I have. Boat, trailer, motor, life jackets, cushions, extra lines and battery. It is currently on the water and can be sailed if you're interested.
The mast can be stepped by two people without special equipment.
The Kestrel 22 is basically the same boat as the Kestrel 23. In the 23 model, the stern was lengthened by a foot. Some people even deny the 22 ever existed, but I can point you to literature from 1964 that shows this model. It is a very rare boat.
