General Details

Opportunity to own this solid, blue water cruiser/racer that is for sale by 2nd owner.   Her current owner has had for about 4 years.  She has many safe blue water miles, including two transatlantic crossings.

The main was reduced to clear the 65' bridges on the intercostal waterway. Sail riggers always commented on the size and strength of the mast. Most of the solid rod rigging was replaced with dynaform. The original rod rigging was continuous and one intermediate stay broke, so to be safe the rest was replaced.

Built in Hong Kong by Cheoy Lee and marketed under the Golden Wave name. Newer cushions, nicely laid out interior, low hour Perkins diesel. The interior layout can accommodate at least 8 to 10 easily. The refrigerator/freezer are inline and in the center of the roomy galley. Hull just painted black along with gold boot stripe (2013).   Complete bottom job 2013.

The versatile ketch/cutter setup allows for great flexibility in the sail plan, and easily single-handed. The ketch rig plus centerboard allows intercostal and shallow water cruising. You'll notice her racing background when you see the hydraulic adjusters for the backstays of the main giving good sailing performance either in the ocean or club racing. 


Working from forward to aft, the layout starts with a V-berth sleeping area or storage area in the forepeak. Just aft is an ensuite shower/head which leads into a cabin with a large sleeping area to port and bunks which have been converted to contained storage areas on the starboard side. Aft of this area is the salon and galley. The galley is on the port side and the large settee which converts to a berth is on the starboard side.  Aft of the settee, is the navigation station. Aft of the navigation station is an open area with bunk berths which is currently used for storage. Across from the navigation station is a captain's quarters which has an ensuite head which is aft of the galley and a large berth running the remaining length of the port side. The engine is located under the cockpit and the companionway stairs are between the navigation station and the captain's quarters. 
The galley is spacious and located in the center of the boat. It has plenty of space for preparing your favorite meal. The stove, storage and sinks run down the port side. Centerline of the boat is the large refrigerator/freezer. Each compartment has its own holding plate and the refrigerator section is front opening towards the bow.
