SIMPLICITY was built by Paul E. Rollins in 1982 to a William Hand design and featured in Roger Taylor’s “Thirty Classic Boat Designs”.

The very definition of “Salty”, she has sailed from Maine to the Grenadine Islands twice, and successfully operated as a 6 pax. charter boat out of Rockland, ME.

SIMPLICITY is in excellent condition due to her relatively recent construction, and the current owner renewed all of the paint and varnish on the hull and deck this spring.  She has new sails and rigging and is ready to launch.
