  • 2 burner Origo Alcohol stove
  • She is a U.S. Coast Guard Documented vessel

    The previous owner completely was in the middle of a complete re-fit when he got too ill to finish.

  • When I purchased the boat every system needed attention.
  • Lots of things were disconnected and taken apart - awaiting repair or replacement.
  • Other things, such as the Wind Generator and the power Windlass , were mounted and never wired up.

    That being said, you can sail her TODAY and finish up the projects at your leisure and how you see fit.

    The hull is solid , and had an epoxy coating at the last haul out, but she currently needs a cleaning and new bottom paint.

  • The sail, mast and rigging are all in fine condition.
  • Mast is tapered Aluminum

    Projects I completed:

  • 1. completely cleaned the entire boat interior and exterior
  • 2. fabricated shelving , berths , bookshelves ,drawers, closet areas , and tiled the brand new galley area .
  • 3. installed fresh water plumbing via whale manual foot pump , fed from the brand new Plastimo 55 gallon flexible tank ( under starboard berth/setee) . There is room for another tank under the Port settee.
  • 4. painted the interior: main cabin ,inside sailing station and closet areas
  • 5. installed brand new Blue Sea Systems 110 v shore power panel , 110 volt GSI receptacles , Guest battery charger , brand new starting battery etc etc.
  • 6. insulated entire cabin from closet area back to inside sailing station with closed cell foam. After spending last winter in the boat, I can assure , she is warm , toasty , dry and leak free.
  • 7. installed brand new poly fuel tank , another tank 90% installed - just needs to be plumbed (approx 20 gallons each)
  • 8. engine , cleaned and descaled the raw water system, installed brand new thermostat , gaskets , starter , fuel lift pump and rebuilt fuel injectors. Engine runs great , pumps lots of water and has virtually no smoke.

    Projects still needed:

  • 1. installing 12v power , light fixtures and re-wire as well as "power up" the windlass , wind generator etc.. Everything needed is on the the boat
  • 2. she needs a haul , bottom cleaning , new zincs and paint
  • 3. install new teak grab rails (included )
  • 4.Still waiting for the metal fabricator to finish the beautiful Stainless Boom gallows . $600. of the $1100. quote is still owed to him upon completion. If not done before I sell , it will be the responsibility of the new owner .
  • 5. Go cruising.

    She is plumbed for a sea toilet but, I haven't installed one. In the factory plans, the head was right where I built closet shelves. My plan was to put a composting head in the forepeak. The forepeak on this boat is for storage anyway so, it's a good place for a toilet. If you choose, you could install one in the original place. It's just a matter of removing a few shelves.

    She was designed by Blondie Hasler and Angus Primrose for a couple to cross the Atlantic in safety and comfort

    Heavily laid up, solid, thick fiberglass hull w/ glassed in reinforcing stringers. The hull and deck are super thick and super strong . You feel it when you walk on deck. This boat is built like a TANK.

    The full width cabin top gives a remarkable amount of livable space down below for a 29 footer.

    Comes with a swinging gimbaled chair for the inside sailing station. You can completely control the boat from inside , while dry , warm and comfortable. You can even adjust the wind vane from inside, so there is almost no need to go outside the cabin on a long passage.

    Included is a "Hasler style" plexiglass bubble for over one of the round hatches. You will however need to figure out a way to mount it securely.

    Google Teleport Expeditions and watch Chris and Jess do some amazing cruising adventures on a cold molded sistership.

    She is berthed in Alameda California. Slip rent is $286. per month. Although I am not a "legal liveaboard" I have lived aboard with no problem. They are very nice people. The marina is located right next to chandleries, boatyards, a travel lift and any thing you may need to get the boat ready for cruising.

    There are about 7 or 8 NA 29s known to exist. When they come up for sale , it is usually in the $25-30K range. I am selling her for this "giveaway" price to give someone a chance to have a fine cruising vessel without a lot of money - and to free up funds for my next purchase. Thanks for looking - and feel free to ask any and all questions.
