SISTER MOON is the Mark III tall rig model built by Lecomte Boat Builders, Jutphass Holland to Lloyds 100AL standards. The MK III has a longer Dome style cabin top for more interior space and a more sleek appearance. The Mark III designation also meant she has a modified fin keel with spade rudder and the mast was moved aft a bit for better upwind performance. She is powered by a new Beta Marine Diesel producing 28 horsepower burning less than .5 gallons per hour. She is now available despite a few unfinished projects as the owner's plans have changed. There is still some work to be done; however, much has been accomplished and she can be sailed while the new owners continue to customize her to their particular needs. Some of the new upgrades include a 2017 Beta diesel, all new standing rigging, all new sail inventory and Harken roller furler.

OWNER'S COMMENTS: This is an easy vessel to singlehand. In heavy weather the mainsail is not necessary as the rig is well balanced with just the roller furling genoa. Presently there are no reefing lines led for the main, however it does have two reefing points on the sail. The new engine is smooth and quiet and sips fuel. There is still some restoration work to do, however the boat may be enjoyed and sailed as you finish where the current owner has left off. The current price reflects that there is still work to be done, however this is a unique Bill Tripp design that turns heads in every harbor, and has had many of the important improvements done.
BROKER'S COMMENTS: The 33' LeComte Medalist Sloop is one of heaviest-built classic cruisers to the CCA rule. They are known for their handsome lines, and fast turn of speed.
