Current Price:
US$ 109,500 

This classic yacht, known for quality construction, speed under sail and elegant accommodations benefits from a recent major refit.  Her recent journey from Trinidad to Bocas del Toro, Panama, crossing the notoriously treacherous  coast of Columbia, with husband and wife crew attest to her formidable sea-keeping characteristics and ease of handling.NOTE:   The passage off Columbia is known as the 5th most difficult passage in the world under sail.

The refit includes all new interior and cockpit cushions, new beds in both cabins, new shower system and head pumps, new portholes in salon (all others removed and re bedded) new lexan on hatches, new paneling in both cabins and heads, new LED lighting throughout and all new fans in both staterooms and salon.  The galley has been completely rebuilt with new refrigeration, stove and oven.  Spectra water maker to keep your tanks full. 

The engine is an 84hp dependable Ford Lehman which was totally rebuilt in 2015 after which the boat sat in the yard for 2 years so she has low engine hours since the rebuild.

She's equipped with an Onan 8kw generator in excellent condition.  Other equipment includes air conditioning in master stateroom, galley and salon, Xantrex inverter/charger, Raymarine autopilot, GPS/Chart Plotter and Standard Horizon VHF with AIS.

The chain plates and standing rigging were replaced with new in 2015 and the main mast sail track has been recently replaced.  The main and mizzen sails are in excellent condition but the genoa is getting tired and could be replaced along with the UV strip on the staysail.

Her hull is solid as a rock and shows absolutely no signs of blisters.  The hull sparkles, new Awlgrip paint in 2016 and the deck was painted in February, 2018.  Great varnish on the brightwork as well, no work for the new owner! 

If you are in the market for a proven world capable, fast cruising yacht with elegant lines and many modern upgrades, please take a further look at the photos and full specifications.  You will not be disappointed.
