This is a favorite of the owner, but sadly, he is getting too old to enjoy her as in years gone by. This boat was made before manufacturers figured out that the hulls didn't need to be so stout and heavy duty. In an effort to engineer lower costs and higher margins, they started making sailboats much thinner and lighter, so this is the last of the breed of sailboats that are made like a tank. Consequently,she is both safer in blue water and she cuts through the waves, rather than being bounced around like newer boats. Bring a reasonable offer and let's see what kind of deal we can help you put together. Contact the listing broker to see this lovely pedigreed cruiser.
