This custom steel schooner is truly a go anywhere vessel. She was reportedly constructed in Florida to the Herreshoff 63 design and shipped to the West Coast to be finished by a previous owner. Unfortunately his dream of sailing the world never came about, and he had to sell.
The current owner has mostly restored her to her original condition. She still needs some interior cosmetics, and the sole is a little warped in one area due to earlier water damage from the head.She comes equipped with a water-maker, a full suite of tanbark sails, a 120 hp Ford Lehman diesel with only 125 hours plus 2 full tanks of diesel.
The seller has just dramatically reduced the price - to $89,995 - to encourage a speedy sale!

Enter via center cockpit companionway to the salon, and there is a large U-shaped dining table to port with ultrasuede upholstered seating that can accommodate 8-10 people to eat or relax and watch TV, which is across to starboard. The nav station is adjacent to the aft walkthrough with the entertainment center, a desk type locker and two in counter/cabinetry Engel refrigerator/freezers to starboard as we move forward.
From the salon and moving forward, galley is down and to port, followed by the guest cabin with double berth. Across to starboard is another Engel ref/freezer, counter space and storage. The enclosed head compartment follows to port, and comprises a vacuuflush marine toilet, vanity with washbasin and separate shower stall.
Crew quarters with two bunk beds follow forward to port, with shelving storage to starboard, and the forecastle in the bow houses more shelving and the anchor locker.
Back to the salon we head aft through the walkthrough to starboard, which leads to the aft (master) cabin, with an island double berth, built in drawers and hanging lockers. There is an ensuite head compartment to starboard that needs to be plumbed for the marine toilet - a brand new head is ready to be installed - and there is already a small vanity with washbasin. The engine room is accessed from the walkthrough, which is very spacious with shelving around.
The steel hull is insulated throughout with foam and cedar planking. Cabinetry is finished well in blond wood, and there is plenty of ventilation throughout via multiple overhead hatches and ports.
