Blue Water Cruiser • Racer • Comfortable Live Aboard • Coastal Cruiser
This is the classic cruiser, racer sloop. She is unique, beautiful and proudly shows off her sleek hull and handsome teak decks. This classic yacht will be fun as a Southern California family cruiser, Blue Water cruiser or PHRF racer!
The vessels appearance is unique in the fact that there isn't a cabin house from the side profile. It has a high freeboard and a flush deck for racing and ease of moving about. The large cockpit area is more than just a helm, it is a gathering area for you and yours to hang out and enjoy yachting at its best.
Live aboard in comfort on this large yacht! It is amazing how warm and inviting she is on the inside. Entering from the cockpit door, you are in the aft berth, to port is the large double berth with the hanging locker and ample storage to starboard. Forward of this is the galley and then the main cabin/salon. Prepare meals for you and family/friends in your large galley featuring tons of counter space, a four burner stove/oven, microwave, double stainless steel sink and a large top loading refrigerator/freezer. Eat inside or walk through the aft companionway to the cockpit and dine "al fresco" on the large cockpit table.
Across the cabin and main companionway to port is the large chart table, with the enclosed full head with hot shower aft of that. Forward of both the chart table to port and galley to starboard are settees, each large enough for a man to take a nap. There is a table in the center and an additional fold down table for dining purposes. The varnished wood and quality lighting make this interior feel much cozier than many other cruisers.
Continuing on, is the forward stateroom in the V of the hull. There is a large, comfortable queen sized bed, plenty of storage including hanging lockers, a mounted flatscreen TV and its own vanity and sink.
She is well lit and ventilated inside with custom interior lighting, several prism lights and three cabin top hatches providing light and fresh air.
Sailing rigging and equipment includes an aluminum keel-stepped mast supported by 1x19 stainless steel wire standing rigging with two sets of spreaders, internal halyards, yacht braid boom vang, spinnaker car and track, roller furling, running backstays and hydraulic backstay. Additionally, you will find two Barient #26winches, six Barient #22 winches, three #28 winches, two Barient #65 self-tailing winches and one Barient #40 self-tailer. For electronics she has an Apelco 4500 VHF radio, Furuno GPS Navigator, Furuno Radar, B&G Autopilot and B&G wind and speed indicators. When it's time to drop anchor, a Simpson-Lawrence Horizon 1500 windlass with up/down switches is there to help.
