Lion's Paw is a robust and pedigree yacht, that will reward her next owner with the ability to cruise the world comfortably, turn heads in any port an at aprice that is amazing.

She has gone through an extensive refit and is almost ready to go.

The previous owner of Lion's Paw was a mechanical engineer and decided after sailing her for 12 years to rebuild her in preparation for retirement and setting off to explore the world. Before completing the project, the owner passed away. The current owner, a professional captain, spent the past 20 months continuing the refit until he became ill.

Extensive work is already completed and equipment purchased. She has already been repowered, rewired, replumbed, repainted, refinished and now only needs a new owner to complete her.

New sails never used.
New Electronics.
All new steering system.
Hull stripped and barier coated.
Masts Stripped and repainted.
All ports and hatches replaced within the last 4 years.
All new marine grade tined copper wiring throughout.
All chainplates replaced with 314 and 316 stainless steel.
New bow sprint and anchor platform.

Finish putting her back together and make her your own. You will have a first class yacht for less than you would dream possible.

The owner is offering Lion's Paw at a reasonable price in hopes of finding someone that will love this majestic yacht as much as he does. He looks forward to seeing her completed and sailing once more.

Broker's Comment Although Lion's Paw will require an investment of some time and money before she will be ready to go cruising, the hardest part of her rebirth is already completed. Repowered, rewired, replumbed, refinished and repainted, what Lion's Paw needs most now is a new owner to finish the project. A new buyer may do the work himself or hire local subcontractors to complete the work. Since the west coast of Florida was for years the pleasure boat building capital of the US, you will find many highly qualified subcontractors available at very competitive rates.
