This sailboat is available for $2950 OR WILL TRADE.
This is a solid blue water-capable sailboat built to the highest standards. Truly a work of art, built by a documented shipwright. It is seaworthy - not damaged, rotted or neglected in any way. I just have too much on my plate, and would like to shorten my "want to" list.
