The rig on this boat is strong and powerful. It features Proctor tapered masts , all stays and shrouds are 3/8 inch stainless cable and every termination has a stay lock fitting, 43 and all!!!

Her sleek and fast Hull was completely laid by hand, the first in a temperature and humidity controlled environment in the industry! She's laid up with a one inch end cut balsa core making her hull among the strongest and most solid in the market. Additionally you benefit from the thermal and sound deadening insulation. After one night that will be tremendously appreciated.

ConditionThis boat will provide many more years of pleasure on the water, she is a proven blue water boat and loves the wind

Also included, but not installed, is a Wagner hydraulic autopilot system, wind generator, data Marine system, Pure water desalination system, and Groce type k porcelain head, New in box Intex Marine vapor warning system. Tons of miscellaneous bits, pieces, equipment etc....

This fine vessel should still considered a light project. She needs a bit of updating to her cabin. mainly paint varnish and perhaps some wall covering. I find it a bit on the dark side. Look at the photos and you can see the quality work that was put into it her salon as well as what needs to be done. the simple open layout it's perfect for live aboard, the V birth is enormous. She even has a cedar lined closet in the master suite.
