So many designers and builders today have gone to crazy extremes to create something new and different with all crazy angles and hard lines and square windows and built as a throwaway boat. Thank goodness there are a few good boats out there. There is nothing better than a sailing vessel that simply looks exactly right! The ultimate designer of beautiful boats is Sparkman & Stephens, Olin Stephens design no. 1966 is a gorgeous vessel that just looks right! If it looks right, it sails great! This S&S designed center board sloop is a beautiful sailing yacht. She looks as perfectly right has she did the day she was launched in 1975.

The classic CCA racer cruiser hull shape has a spoon bow and a counter stern with long overhangs to add that waterline when she’s heeled. This is the S&S design # 1966 by Olin Stephens which was the evolution of his Finisterre design. The modified full keel has a deeply cutaway forefoot and does not extend aft to the rudder. It is a modified almost fin keel with encapsulated ballast and skeg mounted rudder. With the center-board up, the draft is only 4’2”. Compared to earlier full keel designs, the reduced wetted surface resulted in a great deal more speed. The underbody design at the time was very much a racing boat. The shallow draft with the board up makes this boat absolutely dreamy in the Bahamas. She is a very comfortable sea kindly boat that will surprise you and anyone next to you! In fact, the owners report that couples cruising on some mighty good old boats like the Alberg 30 occasionally get whiplash watching Silkie stride by! 

It is indeed a great pleasure to offer you a lovely classic, beautiful boat that is all upgraded for cruising! Silkie, as she is called is our kind of classic boat. She is a perfectly balanced gorgeous S&S sloop with the hull laid up of solid fiberglass in 1974 by Allied Boat Company Inc. This S&S designed sloop known as Design No 1966, or the Allied XL-2, has been lovingly adored, maintained and updated by her owners for the past 16 years. She has been upgraded to a serious cruising boat with a Boom Furler, solar and wind, and Cape Horn steering. All the electronics have been updated with B&G radar and chart plotter complete with AIS. Silkie has safely taken her owners cruising for many trips on the East Coast, to the Caribbean and the Bahamas several times. Silkie is maintained in ship shape working order as she is a real cruising boat. When you see her, you will understand her owners have devoted the past 16 years to maintaining and restoring Silkie. A surveyor in 2014 put the replacement value at a half million dollars. In fact you could never ever build this boat today. Luckily Silkie is in perfect condition.

Highlights and upgrades include:

  • Custom stainless steel Radar Arch with integrated bimini and solar panel installation with pushpit, stanchions, bow pulpit and stern rail

 

  • Furlboom mainsail system with electric winch and all controls in the cockpit

 

  • New B&G radar and chart plotter integrated with NMEA GPS and AIS

 

  • Light House electric windlass installed  with Flexiteak deck protection

 

  • New Kiwi Grip non-skid deck coating

 

  • Rebuilt refrigerator and freezer boxes with high quality insulation

 

  • New  Frigoboat refrigeration systems with keel coolers

 

  • Raritan Electra-Scan Marine Sanitation Device

 

  • Custom cabinetry to provide incredible storage for  provisions and cookware

 

  • Custom swiveling Leather salon lounge chairs

 

  • New Rudder - 316 S/S Rudder

 

  • New opening ports to replace the original fixed windows for great ventilation

 

  • Centerboard completely rebuilt with new centerboard pendant of Monel wire

 

  • Additional stainless steel fuel tank 26 gallons

 

  • Dual Racor  fuel filter system

 

  • New Navman anemometer wind instrument and an additional spare

 

  • And much more!!

 

If you love boats and you don’t have a cool quarter of a million dollars for a cruising boat, you really should give Silkie your consideration. She is just such a great sailboat in such good condition having been lovingly maintained and upgraded. You really need to check her out. She might just be perfect for your Bahamas cruising or the Keys or all the shallow places you’ll enjoy so much.

And…of course she can go wherever you want to go. She has everything you need including great sails, ground tackle, communications including SSB, great new navigation electronics including charts and AIS. She has solar panels and she’s a proven cruiser ready for a new home.
