In excellent condition, this boat rigs in minutes, sails in all conditions, and can be sailed single handed. With roomy aft and center cockpits it holds a crew of 4 or more plus gear. With retractable leeboards and rudder it maneuvers well in shallow water (2.5 ft draft with boards down, 6 inch draft with boards up), AND, can even sail onto the beach! At only 700 pounds it can sail in very light wind, and is easily towed by a compact car. With unlimited reefing and tanks for water ballast it also sails safely in heavy winds and seas. The unstayed cat-ketch rig means no stays to wrestle with when rigging, and also provides for safe and effortless wing on wing down wind sailing. The convertible cabin transforms the boat from roomy daysailer into an overnighter. Can be launched from a beach as well as a ramp.
This boat has all the extras offered by the builder:
Galvanized trailer w/ 2 speed winch , and spare trailer tire - some rust on peripherals, none on trailer
2 hp, 4 stroke Honda motor (2008), starts on first pull
