This is a super rare and unique boat that was designed by Bill Tripp, built in Holland, and imported by Seafarer.
Both the hull and deck are solid glass with NO CORE. That means that there is no core in the deck to get wet, rot, and replace at huge expense and time like on nearly all older (and unfortunately newer) boats.

Imported by and part of Seafarer Yachts line, this William Tripp Jr. design was offered as a sloop or a yawl and began production in the early 1960s. There were 30 hulls produced. They were built in the Netherlands by Werkspoor. The boat has a pleasant sheer, with graceful overhangs for and aft and a full keel with attached rudder. The interior is conventional with a double forepeak cabin with a head located between the forepeak and the main salon. The main cabin has port and starboard settee berths. The galley is stretched across the after part of the main salon. Large well laid out cockpit with lots of room to stretch out and for storage.
