Truly one of the best performance single handers that when sailed by two is still fun to sail. She is good up to three crew, but can be sailed by one person giving you the ability to do this due to the amazing stability that the scow type hull affords.
Quick to plane (skip on top of the water) the MC Scow as a single handed sailboat that is a Cadillac " LASER ". Much easier to sail than the Laser, yet more powerful and in most conditions much faster. Great boat for the new to sailing or to an accomplished sailor with years of experience. The balance on the rudder and proper sail controls will tell you all you need to know until she " Takes off ".
On the home front, your first mate will revel in the stability of the boat in all conditions.
Stable, easy to rig, a joy to sail, and in the case of this MC Scow # 557, she is in remarkable condition. Cosmetically,the gel cote on this MC Scow makes you think she has been stored inside for most of her life - - and apparently has.
Ready to introduce you to the wonderful world of FAST Scow sailing , come to our yard in Memphis and bring a car with a 1 & 7/8 " ball on your hitch and haul her away and start enjoying the best sport in the world !!
