General Details

 The Brewer 12.8 Meter is a full keel with center board that is an outstanding cruising vessel.  With its large fuel and water capacity, huge engine room, big refrigerator and freezer system, abundant storage and proven construction integrity make it a good live aboard or long distance cruiser. The 12.8 is highly regarded as one of Ted Brewer's great cruising designs offering excellent performance, shoal draft and a very roomy comfortable interior. This vessel has a newly rebuilt 90 hp Ford Lehman (21 Hours on engine) but she does need some TLC and cosmetic work to make her beautiful again.  If you want to do some work on this vessel you could save thousands on a world cruiser.  Make your offer now before the Owner pays someone else to do the work and raises the asking price!!!   Engine rebuilt June 2012.
