STOP!!! Before you write off all Reliances as a home built boats, consider that Strider was completed by a master craftsman AND with the assistance of Reliance factory staff! In fact it would be hard to find a factory built boat that had a better finish!
"Strider" is a gem. She has classic lines and an easily driven hull that provides speed and stability under sail. The interior is beautifully finished in Ash with Teak trim. The boat has well thought out systems, lots of storage and a great cruising layout. With many portlights and hatches as well as white headliner, she is light and welcoming down below. This classic cruising boat was commissioned as a new boat by her current owners who then sailed her on the Great Lakes for 15 years.
"Strider" received a full refurbishment in 2008 not limited to: the addition of ProFurl in-boom furling, electric cabintop sail handling winch, complete engine overhaul, Seafrost refrigeration, Kyocera solar panels, KISS wind generator, Spectra watermaker, full suite of new electronics including ComNav Commander autopilot, Tack Tick sailing instruments, Raymarine E120 CP and 4kw Radar, Icom 802 SSB, Winslow liferaft ... the list goes on. Other desirable features are an electric headsail furler, hard-top dodger, SSB with Pactor III Modem, upgraded engine alternator, large battery bank and much more.
The owners have just returned from a four year cruise to the Eastern Caribbean, Venezuela, the ABC's, Jamaica, Cuba, Cayman Islands, Bahamas and back to the US.
Advance appointments to view this fine yacht are essential.
