With only a 5.5 ft. draft (centerboard up), she's well suited for Florida and Bahamas sailing and her current owners have done just that. They have owned her since 1993 and have been to the Bahamas 7 times, cruised all of Florida and have been to the Keys more times than they can remember. She has a solid fiberglass hull, double spreaders and rod rigging. She was designed to IOR rules in effect at that time and has a PHRF average rating of about 93 so she will get you to your cruising destination quickly.

"Barefoot" is in good condition for a vessel of her age, the owners have all the manuals for all the on board equipment and invoices for all the work they have done on her over the years. There is no Chart Plotter/GPS on the boat as the one they had "bit the dust" recently so it was taken off the vessel. You will need to purchase a new one and you have a lot of choices out there very reasonably priced right now....
