There are many reasons so many Cambria owners have kept their boats
for 15, 20 or more years. Quality design and construction are the key
elements. Exceptional strength and comfort are combined with
manageable performance and beautiful lines. Pegasus is truly a classic yacht that has never
been chartered or sailed in southern waters. Although now 31 years
old, her light use offers her next owners a high quality yacht that
has fewer sea miles and lower engine hours than most yachts half her age.
Since delivery Pegasus has only been sailed summers in New
England waters. Maine became the preferred cruising waters and for
this reason the yacht has been stored indoors most winters and
maintained by Hinckley in Southwest Harbor, Wayfarer in Camden,
Maine and more recently by Quality Yachts in Tiverton, RI . Over the
years her owners have continuously upgraded the equipment, systems and
interior decor. Highlights of improvements include new anchor
windlass, electronics, sails, diesel heater, Ultrasuede fabrics,
asymmetrical spinnaker, new autopilot, GPS, solar panels, both
companionway dodgers and new hull and deck paint.
Added benefits of Pegasus are her keel board design that provides a
shoal draft fin keel, and rudder that is fully protected by a rugged
skeg. Cambrias are most often sailed by a couple. Pegasus has also been single handed many times.
The centerboard is available for added performance sailing to windward
however is seldom lowered because the Cambria is good on all points of
sail with the board in the raised position.
