1972 Ericson Yachts 39
- Stock #100265 -
Erickson 39 Sail Boat
Dependable and fast makes for a good value in a cruiser
Designed by Bruce King, and introduced in 1970, the 39 was a serious racer-cruiser in its day. With its flush deck, powerful sloop rig and nicely finished mahogany interior, it was sexy and expensive. Ericson was on top of its game in the 1970s
The owner has repowered with electric propulsion. This is a fast sailboat, very sturdily built with new roller, new lazy pack and companionway hatch. Owner has also added AC/Heat!!
The first thing you notice about the cockpit of the Ericson 39 is the placement of the wheel; it's just behind the bridgedeck, not right over the rudder like you would suspect. The emergency tiller head farther aft reveals the actual rudder stock position. However, it does have practical advantages. It frees up the rest of the cockpit for sail handling, and for lounging, and it also allows the helmsperson to tuck under the spray dodger and out of the weather. There are two good-sized cockpit lockers on this 39.
Once you drop below you will find the galley close at hand to starboard. It is a very nice galley. There are two sinks facing forward and a three-burner stove outboard. There's good counter space and storage both in drawers and bins behind the stove.
Opposite the galley is a settee berth and quarter berth. This is actually a very good sea berth provided you're not too tall. It stretches under the aft-facing nav station. The saloon includes facing settees with a centerline table between. There is good storage above and outboard the settees and behind them. The head is forward to port. The V-berth is very good in size, and the bunks are not four feet high, so it's easy to crawl into bed. There is a big hanging locker to starboard, opposite the head, and access to the chain locker is at the head of the berth.
Overhead hatches provide ventilation, and that is by design a bit limiting. The owner has upgraded the lighting in the boat, which is dramatically more efficient today and also can keep the heat down. The 39 interior is nicely trimmed in mahogany. This is a very livable interior for a couple.
The Ericson 39 is a sweet sailing boat by any standard and has evolved into a very nice sailing cruising boat. And cruise it does.
