Price just reduced!  Beautiful Cutter rigged Ketch that looks new.  Owner replaced the whole deck without the teak.  Owner purposely left teak out to prevent leaks through screw holes.  She has non skid paint on most of the deck but the center cockpit is still teak.  The masts are Isomat aluminum.  The rigging and sails are in good shape and she has a Ford Lehman 83 HP Diesel with about 700 Hrs.

There are a few things she needs in the way of electronics. All the old radios etc. were taken out so she needs a VHF and a GPS at minimum.   The other main thing she needs is a holding tank which was also removed for replacement.

She currently is on the hard in a private barn.  The owner took the hull and drilled the small, cosmetic blisters out and filled them all with epoxy.  The keel needs one more coat of epoxy before painting and it will be like new.  Don't get the wrong idea; this boat is beautiful and will be like new.  The pulpit and the davits were removed to move the boat into the barn.  They are back in place but they need tightening.  They were left loose for moving her in & out. 

All in all, the boat could be ready to go back in the water with a minimal amount of work and a few days for the keel to dry.  Unfortunately, the owner passed away before he could do the last few things.  The family doesn't want to do the work so the boat is priced accordingly.  She is for sale as is and where is.  Buyer will have to hire a truck to come out and trailer her to get the boat back in the water.

This is a Cutter rigged ketch.  She has two head sails (jib & stay sail) a fully battened main and a mizzen.  All are in good shape.  All the lighting in the cabin is red or white for best visibility at night.

This is a diamond in a barn waiting for a new owner.
