These high-tech cats cost $51,000 new for base boat, engine, and trailer
Fun in heavy air: I've sailed at 8-10 knots for sustained periods with occasional bursts above. All the while, both hulls were on the water, the bows didn't plow, and the helm was light. No heeling, no upset passengers or crew. Just ear-to-ear grins.
Fun in light air: A light breeze gets the boat going with a gentle burble as the water flows off the sterns. At times like these, I like to turn things over to one of my guests while I lie on the forward tramps and "meditate."
Fun in no air: A 1999 electric start, 9.9 hp 4-stroke Yamaha long shaft with wheel helm steering and controls pushes her at 6 to 8 knots. Lower end, water pump, and fuel pump were rebuilt in 2012. Carburetor rebuilt in 2014. We generally sail the boat off and onto the mooring so the motor gets little use but runs perfectly.
Easy to Single-hand yet has room for friends. With four people aboard, I find the boat has the same sparkling performance as when single-handed.
Great boat for teaching. With dual tillers, teacher can sail one tack and the student the other. A high aspect ratio foil centerboard and rockered hulls make for easy tacking.
Easy-to handle rig eliminates stress. Lazy jacks control the fully-battened Dacron main and Harken roller furling controls the jib. Sails are easily handled from the cockpit. Brand-new sail cover goes around lazy jacks. Sails are original and in decent shape, though the main is little soiled. Rotating mast
Get out of the sun/rain or camp cruise with bimini top/stainless support bars, zip-on windshield panels and rear tonneau/rain cover for complete cockpit protection.
Monitor your depth and see how sail adjustments affect your speed with the Raymarine digital speed/depth instrumentation, battery switch, and Group 27 battery.
Explore coves and shallows or pull up on shore and enjoy a day on the beach. The boat draws only 8" with a centerboard and kick-up rudders raised.
High quality materials and vacuum bagging create a strong, light boat.
Owner Improvements make assembling the boat, raising the mast, raising/lowering the rudders and centerboard, and gaining access to lazarettes much easier.
Easy to trail on a custom, single axle, galvanized trailer. Trailer includes a system to lift the bridgedeck and a system to rotate and slide the hulls under the bridgedeck for assembly and disassembly of boat. Lights on are on a removable light bar so they don't go in the water. Bearings and tires are good. Rims are galvanized. Spare is included.
The boat has space for a porti-potti and a masthead VHF antenna but it does not have a porti-potti or a VHF radio. You can make your own decisions about these rather personal items. Bottom paint is ablative.
Reason for Selling: I turned 60 this year and I want to do some longer-distance coastal cruising. While camp cruising is fine for a couple of weeks, anything longer requires a cabin (IMHO).
