Extremely clean Midwestern freshwater boat. No known damage history. Waxed and shines almost like new.
This is a water ballast boat with a swing keel. These features provide stability in the water and makes the boat lighter for towing. After raising the mast, it is as easy to launch and retrieve as a typical ski or motor boat.
It has a mast raising system making it possible for one person to raise/lower the mast, but is easier for two people.
This boat has been given extremely good care and should be one you can launch and sail, rather than spend your time cleaning and repairing.
It is a stock boat that has not been altered. If you want to customize it, you will not have to work around other’s “improvements.”
