Lions Paw is a 35’ 1963 Allied Seabreeze. She’s been beautifully restored, modernized and is turn-key ready. This past season she was cruised extensively throughout Florida and the Bahamas and is ready to go again. She is outfitted to comfortably sustain over a month at sea without needing to return to port. If desired, the purchase includes one week of free cruising lessons, taught by her owner (US Sailing certified instructor and former Director of the Middle Key Sailing Program). Possible topics include voyage planning, safe anchoring, basic engine maintenance, electrical repair, and how to catch dinner etc…
Toys, Specs and Gear:
After 10+ years of cruising we are moving north to start a family and be land lubbers for a while. As such we are selling Lion’s Paw fully stocked with all the gear, spare parts and toys needed to set sail for the islands tomorrow. This includes a complete offshore fishing setup, diving gear, dinghy/motor, paddleboard, lobstering equipment, portable 10,000 BTU air conditioner, as well as many others.
Designed after the famous centerboard racer “Finisterre” she is fast as well as comfortable. Her shallow draft (3 ½ feet), opens a vast array of cruising grounds not accessible to deep-draft vessels, perfect for the shallow waters of Florida and the islands. Her hull is solid fiberglass and she has a full keel, which provides protection to the rudder and propeller. With her solid bronze centerboard fully extended she drafts 7 feet, which provides safety and stability offshore. The first fiberglass yacht to circumnavigate the globe was an Allied. They are well respected Bluewater yachts and can be found actively cruising all around the globe.
She is fully energy independent with a 500-watt solar array, intelligent AirBreeze wind generator and enlarged deep-cycle battery bank. She’s powered by a reliable and efficient 20 hp Yanmar diesel connected to a 30-gallon Monel fuel tank. She carries over 100 gallons of freshwater with a 12-volt Katadyn Water-maker (and two spare backup units). The galley was remodeled to include a modern fridge/freezer, tile counter-tops, microwave, new cabinetry, a two-burner propane stove (there is also a large 12-volt chest freezer installed in the lazarette). The cabin is lined with teak and mahogany, has 4 full-sized bunks, fold out dining table and a queen-sized bed in the master v-berth.
The bathroom was fully remodeled with a mosaic floor, custom porcelain sink, and hot water shower.
Her working sails are in excellent condition, she also comes with a spare mainsail and heavy weather genoa. All exterior canvas, standing rigging, chain plates and steering cables were replaced in 2018!
She has been an amazing boat and carried us through some incredible adventures. She deserves a new owner who will continue to cherish her as much as we have. There are many additional pieces of gear and updates not listed in this description, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
