Solitaire is an eye pleasing Ted Hood designed sloop, in which you can either cruise offshore or sail the bay. When the wind is not available, her Yanmar 4JH 44hp diesel engine will get you to your destination in a timely fashion. Solitaire was cut from the proven Bristol keel-centerboard mold, drawing only 4' 6", which allows entrance into many gunkholes unavailable to other vessels of this size.
If you're looking for a vessel worth your time and investment - one you can make your own with some updating and a personal touch, Solitaire could be the boat for you!
