he 1960s produced a whole passel of smaller production yachts. One of the most popular and typical of this style of boat is the Luders 33 designed by Bill Luders and built by Allied Yachts of Catskill, NY, from 1966 to 1974.

CRUSADER is in very good condition and has been sailed every season by the current owner for the past 27 years. The owner has made numerous improvements and upgrades over the years. The builder and the boats are known for their high quality and rugged construction. A sister ship named DOVE was sailed by Robin Lee Graham and his circumnavigation and adventures were chronicled in his book published in 1972 of the same name.
