1986 Bayfield Yachts 29 Cutter
If you're seeking the perfect sailboat for gunk holing in the Chesapeake Bay, look no further...here she is! With a shallow 3.5' draft, you can find all the nooks and crannies the bay has to offer. She's equipped with a diesel sipping Yanmar so you'll be able to explore far and wide on two to three tanks of fuel all summer...that's barely over $200 in fuel expenses...ALL SUMMER LONG!
Designed by renowned designer Ted Gozzard, founder of Bayfield Boat Yard, LTD in southern Ontario, the Bayfield 29 has developed a reputation as a wonderfully handling and very forgiving coastal cruiser. Cutter rigged, she's set-up for single-handling with all lines leading aft to the cockpit, and easily steered from her pedestal steering. She points very nicely and is very forgiving whether under light or heavy winds. Her entry is smooth, and the rounded bottom to the full keel helps reduce pounding, as she slices through the water. Not a fast sailer, but a comfortable, smooth and gentle ride. Her classic lines, from the decorative functional bowsprit to the transom are pleasing to the eye. One look and you'll see why it is no wonder that Bayfield became one of Canada's largest sailboat builders.
The interior of the Bayfield 29 is cavernous, with ample headroom, space to relax and move about, and a plethora of storage space. She sleeps four adults comfortably (two in convertible settees and two in aft quarter berths). The fold down dinning table leaves creates plenty of space for passage to the roomy head which is situated all the way forward in the V. The cruising galley is well equipped with a two burner stove, microwave oven and nice deep ice box.
She's been well cared for through the years and has cruised the waters of the Chesapeake extensively. Owner is retiring form boating, creating this opportunity. She won't last long, so come see her today!
